July has been WIP- and Scrap Busting month for me!   I have made a lot of progress - although there are still a few older / larger projects which I am hoping to finish in the next 5 days (but more about that in another post)!.

As soon as I have cleared my table I am going to concentrate solely on the Happy Days Blanket.    I will post our next square on the 8 August 2014 (can you BELIEVE it is August already???)- and hopefully by then I have crocheted enough squares for a nice "layout" photo!

Please post photos of your progress on my Zooty Owl Facebook page so that I can include them in our next CAL line up!

Have a great weekend!!!!

  2. I love the colors you use in your patterns. I head up a crochet group at our church and I think this would be perfect to do a crochet a-long. Thanks so much for your newsletter and all your wonderful patterns.
