About Me

My photo
Fayette Co, KY, United States
I am a country girl stuck in the city, for the time-being. I enjoy the country way of life, and practice that in my home as best I can by canning and preserving foods, cooking and baking from scratch, crocheting, living vicariously thru the many blogs I follow about country life. I enjoy learning about raising livestock, and glean from my past employment and personal experiences of working with animals to fuel some of my postings. I have 5 cats, who keep my life interesting. And I am also an amateur poet. Thanks for stopping by and checking out this Farmer-gal who is caught in town, for now.

Mama's Afghan

I made myself sit down for about five hours today
and finish my Mama's birthday afghan.
And it's done except for weaving in the yarn ends on the back.
Here, Albert is supervising the picture-taking.
It turned out alright, but I am a perfectionist.
I still ended up with some of the same color squares together.
I thought I had it all figured out, then laid out the strips to
piece together, and got confused, so just left them as is.
I think I'll just work on the other granny squares
for my niece's baby that is due in December,
and not piece it together into
an afghan for a while. It took a lot longer than
I thought it would to do this one for Mama.
But I am glad I was able to
make it through my first afghan.
Now, the sky's the limit!
