I'm thrilled to show you a little peek of my Pretty Minty Afghan!
Here she is folded up. I just wanted you to get a peek with it sewn together.
I spent all freakin' day yesterday sewing the squares together and weaving in ends.
Have I mentioned I HATE SEWING?! All day I sewed, people.
Making a crocheted blanket is NOT easy. It's hard work.
But so worth it when you're done!!
I'm starting the elaborate border today.
I made that pumpkin pie I said I was going to.
Last night I was watching an episode of Law & Order: Criminal Intent
When this dog showed up on the screen, I had to pause it.
It's Eli's twin!
Eli wasn't very happy to pose for this picture, but we made him.
This gross-looking stuff will magically turn into several delicious dinners.
It's a package of 15-beans that I soaked in water overnight, drained, added a package of pork neckbones with meat, an onion, and 8 cups of fresh water. After it has cooked about 4-5 hours on high in the crock pot, I'll add two cans of diced tomatoes, chili powder, garlic, and some fresh-squeezed lemon juice (ancient Chinese secret). The meat should slip right off the bones and I'll remove them too. We'll have it for supper with some cornbread a couple of nights and I'll freeze the rest for a no-cooking night this winter.
Ollie: Momma, I wuv you.
Me: Aww, come here. Who's a good boy? I'll clean your eyes, Ollie-Wally. Want to sit with me while I crochet today?
Ollie: Will you make some of that hot tea with milk and share it with me?
Me: Yes, darlin'.
Does your dog talk to you, plain as day, like mine do?
I'm off to crochet that border and watch Sunday football.
Y'all enjoy the last day of your holiday weekend.
