A Finish for Tuesday!


I finished up BAATN last night! Yea! I am really happy with how it turned out. As I said before, I made some major color changes so it would fit into my decor. I also changed the bottom flower design to a star from a Sampler Girl freebie. It had a quilted look to it and I felt it went the theme of the overall design better - at least for my taste! Now that this one is complete, I have several others I am looking to start but no more color changes for awhile! I also need to start back working on This is the Day several nights a week. So many of you finished it off already and mine is sitting here about half done! It is just too pretty to let go into the UFO pile!

I have also been trying to teach myself how to knit every once in a while. I still haven't started the classes yet but I found a website with free instructions and I am practicing. It's going slow right now but once I get the casting on down, I hope to be able to learn other stitches a little faster!

The rains are supposed to start again sometime this week and be another day after day after day type storm front! I guess we are due for some so we don't go into a drought but the yard just dried out to the point that I don't feel like I'm walking on a wet sponge whenever I go outside!

I hope everyone has a lovely day and until next time - stay safe, stay happy and stay well!

Such a nice finish. And it looks so great.
I'm always a bit reluctant when it comes to changing colours because I fear that when I change one colour I also have to change others so that I have a whole different colour range in the end, lol.
