This is my progress from TW Monday. Instead of the gold in the border, I chose to use the pinkish purples and blueish purples from the dragon's front wing. I had my doubts in the beginning but I think it's going to be very nice in the end.
I have no new photos of my Christmas Ornaments that I'm working on for these reasons. I finished one but it's going to be a gift for someone and I don't want them seeing it yet. The second one isn't quite finished yet. I just have back stitching to go and if I will get off the computer, I can finish it up. ;) The third one will be a copy of the first because I really like how it turned out so I wouldn't be able to show that one either. So many excuses! ;)
I will be working on The Silver Lining's 25th Anniversary this week. It's a pretty design but I usually prefer more color in my stitching.

Well, I quit working on Dragon Ride for 2 days and then worked on it again for TW Monday. I think the break was what I needed! Next Monday, when I pick it again, I should be starting on the inside of the border. This week I'll be working on Egypt Garden so I should have a nice progress pic for the weekend.
I was out in the yard picking up pecans that have fallen out of my trees and I saw this little guy just hanging around watching me. I love taking pictures of insects for some reason so I was pretty excited when he let me get pretty close to him. Isn't he beautiful?

I've been working on my Dragon Ride for a month long October TW SAL. I would very much like to finish the rider and at least some of the border this month.
The granny square is my first crochet project that I started maybe a year ago. I set it aside and then forgot how to do it but after reviewing some tutorials online, I remembered how and finished off the blue that I had started. I would like to keep going on it and possibly make a lap size afghan. The next pattern I want to do is the ripple. My Great Grandmother used to make ripple afghans and I still have the one she made for me. She is a major reason why I wanted to learn to crochet in the first place.
