Afghan Progress--Slow and Steady

A little more than a month ago I wrote about the afghan I started so very long ago. I've managed to complete two more squares since then, and am working on yet another square. After I finish the present square's work, I believe there are just three more left. (or is it two...who's counting?) There are twenty squares all together.

One of the squares I completed uses a design from a book I borrowed from a very dear friend, and it includes a monogram. I used my husband's and my initials on it.  The other square I came up with and charted myself. It's very simple, as you might guess. Right now I am working on a flower basket square from Sue Hillis' Granny's Attic book. I'm so loving that one!

Some progress photos are coming soon. Thanks for stopping by today.

Summer is Flying By....

Summer is nearing an end for me, and soon I will be back at work full-time. It's been a wonderful summer filled with good times.  Not all summers have been this way in our lives, that's for sure!

Hoping to stitch soon. I finished another afghan square, and am nearing completion on another one as well.

We've visited beautiful spots this summer, and for that I am very grateful. Here's a lovely bonsai tree taken in a Japanese Garden at San Diego's Balboa Park:
