Crochet and postcards
Laura left yesterday morning but we spent our last evening watching some pretty bad TV. In between laughs I started my next big blanket and after last night's football game, I'm through the first ball.
Yesterday afternoon was my monthly knit/crochet group. I worked on this shawl and I'm on the 3rd ball of Lion Brand Ice Cream Cotton Blend. I do not love how the color plays out. But it's great to work with and it's going to be a very comfortable and warm shawl. I think it's about long enough and then there's trim around the edges to do.
But I've been crocheting too much and I will take the next 2 days off to rest my hands. Instead I'll be sewing.
First thing is to clear off the cutting table by figuring out how I'm going to use these fabrics for my third postcard design. I found that pretty batik at the only quilt shop in Greenville, ME this summer. I love the added gold sparkle snowflakes printed over it. This today's task along with making cookies to take to my brother's house tomorrow for a Thanksgiving meal with family.

I love that batik, but I don't generally use fabric with gold sparkle for quilts. Thus, I would probably use the "wrong" side of it.

I was wondering how your hands were coping with all the crocheting. I know mine are screaming at me and I'm not doing nearly what you have.
