Ants and More

Conjuring up a great post title is challenging. Let's just go with "ants and more" this time. Every January they show up. They appear in several rooms right after Christmas, staying around for several weeks. Here you can witness them enjoying the afternoon on the hard wood in the entry.

I've loved to crochet for many years, mostly the edge on flannel baby blankets. It is so nice to always have a project to grab to take along for basketball games (it helps the nerves), riding in the car, waiting in the car and visiting on the couch. Pictured are several blankets in process or completed. They make great baby gifts, at least I hope the people I give them to think so...

With the help of blonde friend, Valentine Square number 1 got 'fixed". I had the top right fourth of the block turned the WRONG WAY by one quarter turn. Glad we got that figured out, or this would be one wonky valentine quilt. I can't wait to get it done and post it here.
DD #2 has posted the full picture of the Christmas Eve Snowman. I will show the very last remnants of him one month later. To achieve the purple hair, they filled a spray bottle with water colored with food coloring! This guy was in the backyard. With all the snow we have received these last few days, I've been begging ds to make a cute little snowman in the front yard, scarf around neck included. maybe tomorrow....
