Spring, Summer Catch up.

I've been bad i know... Did I REALLY last post in February?! 
Here's a little bit of a catch up of my summer Crochet. 
First: Filled an order for a adorable hat and ripple baby afghan.
I loved the colors so much, I bought some an made a Granny baby blanket out of them.

Then there's the random bit of left overs i made a giant granny square out of.
It was a lovely way to get rid of those scraps without chucking them! 
It now graces the side table in my room. 
I started the Crochet along over at Not your average crochet  It was super fun.. but I got distracted, and decided that I wanted to make it into a pillow cover! 
 so I stopped at this length and now it's waiting in the pile for me to weave in the ends and get it on a pillow! 

AND! Finished my Random afghan with all my scraps! 
It fits my Queen sized bed quite comfortably!

I've also done a bit of Embroidery, Dyeing
 (with Kool-Aid!! If you haven't done it you-tube it, It's so easy and fun!)  
This is two of the few dresses I've made this summer.. wasn't a summer of sewing.. 
This Burnt Orange was an order for a ball.
and my Bobbin lace project (which was finished and given as a present) I haven't been able to find the time to get to it this summer... hopefully be able to do more of it in the near future.

SO! Short catch up post and I'll hopefully be back next week with more recent stuff!
I'm about to do a "Sock-down" on Ravelry.
Starting in September, hoping to be able to hang on for longer than two months this year!
