WIP Wednesday - Same projects but with some progress

Happy Wednesday! Every Wednesday all I can think about is that Geico commercial with the camel...Woot! Woot! Hump Day!...LOL!! Okay if you haven't seen it, it is quite hilarious.

I have been steadily working on all my open projects. I squared up a few of the African Flowers for my afghan. I had about 16 that needed the white border. Then I crocheted about 16 more over the 4th of July holiday. I have about 40 squares total and need probably 100 more!

I found a great site to help calculate how many squares I would need for a queen size blanket. You can go here  and there is a chart that gives you the number of squares needed for your afghan according to the size you are wanting to make. Granted it might not be exact if you are planning to add border, but it gives a great idea of how many needed.

I tried using embroidery craft thread to make some flowers. They turned out really nice, but I am not use to using such a small hook and thin thread! It takes some getting use to that's for sure. I used this tutorial for a 5-petal flower and then added some buttons. Very crafty!!

No new projects this week, just trying to get some headway on the same ones.

Take a moment and check out Tami's Amis and Other Creations blog for other WIPs.

Now I will leave you with some gorgeous tree canopy pictures!


  1. The african flower afghan is looking good. Sixteen squares over the weekend sounds fast! What are you going to do with your flowers?

    1. Thanks! I haven't decided on the small flowers yet. Maybe make hair comb or berets with them.

  2. Oh I love the African Flower motif. Your colour choices are beautiful!

    1. Thanks!! :-) I just had a look at your post on the African Flower Hexagon...I love your color scheme!!
