My week in pictures

I decided to try one of these weekly posts again!!  
I stole this idea from my friend Marci - go check out her awesomely cute website
Every Monday I'll post my week in pictures from the previous week.  I'm always taking pictures with my iPhone, so this should be super easy!!!

As always I'm crafting!
I bought new yarn for a project!

I wasn't sure what to do with these grannies! I sent one set to my friend Starr who promises to put them to good use in the Ukraine! 

I am working a few Jayne Hats for the Austin Browncoats

I played some games!
I'm still laughing at this drawing I did for my brother!!! Mordor, this way!

My husband started teaching the family to play Small World
I joined some friends for Geeks Who Drink for the Best Ever Joss Wheden Trivia! We were team "It must be bunnies!"  We were 16th out of 45 teams -- not too bad!

I watched some baseball
My daughter is improving! She hit two balls during the game and my son made an unassisted double play and got 2 outs!!

New Obsession!!
I've given into the Blythe obsession and bought one of these for my daughter for her 8th Birthday - shh don't tell her!!


Can't wait to own them all!

So how was your week?

Need some grannies?

About a year ago I saw a post for a granny square swap. The idea was to make 6 squares for a different person each week and then in the end you would have enough for your own blanket.   I got super excited about this project and got right to work on my squares.
Well somehow I missed some of the information and I never got into the actual swap.  
Now I have these 4 sets of granny squares...

I had some suggestions from instagram friends to make more for a blanket or for a pillow...
But I'm really wanting to have my own granny square swap...
What do you think???
Would you be interested in swapping?

Flower Granny Square Blanket

I wanted to share the newest blanket I made! 
Here it is all folded up!
There are 36 squares all together - 18 with flowers and 18 in aqua.
It measures about 31inches X 31 inches, so it's the perfect baby blanket.

This is an up close picture of the flower squares.

I also used a border from my around the corner crochet borders book.  I LOVE this book! It is very helpful for making pretty blankets!

I'll post more pictures later - it is not good picture taking weather right now :(

Of course I'll be adding this blanket to my Etsy Shop soon!
