Snow Day = Crochet

Playing a bit of crochet catch up again.  Yesterday I managed the top square Butterfly Garden & then today being a snow day with a very rare event of snow falling at home, there wasn't much better to do than whip up Waldo's Puzzle in between watching the weather change, listening to reading & waiting for dinner to cook.  I think I got the rings in the right place this time too!  I have done it once before & it was only when I was finished that I realised I still had it wrong.  Seems OK this time.  I've been so busy knitting but it feels good to have these done now too.

A portrait of my boys once a week for a year.

BJ - Reading the good old "Peter & Jane" books.  It's just reading at home but it's been making a lot of difference at school too.  Yay for being able to read!  
DJ - Oh to be this little & ummmm...  comfortable in silly places!

Ice Cold

A couple of squares worked through July.  Top one is Delightful Ridges which was fun to do.  But I really like the second one called Ice Cave.  Suits us right now with the middle of winter & the frosts we have had.
