Quilted Lattice Ascot

 Now that the Tanta Shawl is finished, I started this.  I will post a picture of the finished Tanta Shawl as soon as I get my little $22.00 half mannequin from Amazon.  I know you'll all miss my stuff laying on the dining room table :)

Halloween Crazy Quilt Almost Done

 I should be done with this quilt in a week or so.  I plan on hanging it behind the bed in the master bedroom around Halloween.  My bedspread is green and wouldn't look good near this soooooooooooo  today I dug out an old chenille off white and dyed it. Could not find a rust color or a country orange. The closest I could find was "tangerine" RIT dye.  The color did not work so then I dyed it again and tossed in two boxes of tan RIT dye.  That toned it down a bit.

Not Quite Right

2 Boxes of Tan to tone it down

The bedspread is in the dryer now. Will post picture later.

Dove Chocolate Commercial

I love this commerecial.  Thin, beautiful sex kittens with not a hair out of place are rolling around on satin sheets or eating chocolate.  The narrative is "I confess. I'm not perfect. I can't sew, knit or crochet."  Losers :)  Come on!!! One out of three!! Pick one!!  Get out of bed and do something with your spare time!!!  Seriously skip the gym once in a while :)
