Time for Crochet !!

I am working on some octagon shapes to stitch together for a blanket. These have a light cream background. They are made out of Red Heart Acrylic. I love to use it for projects. The shapes are about as large as a plate. I am doing my borders in cream. Pattern is available HERE FREE

The End Of A Lifetime

Queenie has been a member of this family for 17 years. Today Harold and I had to take her to the vet for the final time. I can't think of not having her here. Not hearing her bark. Not opening that late night can of dog food. She was Harold's dog. We were together to the end.
