FO Friday - My Ripple!!!!!!!!

I've finally finished it!  My ripple is complete!!!  Want to see?

It ended up being 52"x76" (132 x 193cm)!!!!  As you can see above, I can lay on the couch and be completely covered!!!!

I'm so excited that its done.

I did a very simple border.  Who knows, I may add to it later.

I struggled to get a full picture of it on the floor, but here's my best shot.

Look at all the color!!  I love it!

What do you think?  I love it!  I started it in January, so this blanket is the biggest and took me the longest.

Pattern:  Neat Ripple Pattern
Yarn:  Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino
Colors:  All listed on my project page, here
Size:  52"x76" (132 x 193cm)
Hook:  4 mm G

I've linked with Tami's Amis, Natural Suburbia, and Wisdom Begins in Wonder.

I Won Crochet by Faye's Giveaway!

At the end of March (I can't believe it was that long ago) Robyn Chachula of Crochet by Faye was reviewing the Jordana Paige Butler Tool Case and she was giving it away afterwards.  It turns out that Jordana Paige decided to send me a brand new one!  I have been using this tool case non-stop ever since I got it!

It came in the mail when my boyfriend was in the hospital.  It really brightened my night opening it up.  I made myself go slow and savor it.

This organizer is amazing and I can't say enough how much I love it!

My hooks are in the front compartments and my needles are in the expandable section.

I just want to say thank you to Robyn and Jordana!!!  I'm sorry it took so long, but I love it and thank you so much!

May Mosaic

May flew by and not a lot of crafting was done.  Many of you know that my bf, Dave, has colon cancer.  I told you a few weeks ago that it has spread to his liver.  We now have surgery tentatively planned for July 20th.  He's starting another round of chemotherapy today.  His mom and his 11yr old sister are staying with us for most of the summer and I'm glad they are here.

Here's my May mosaic:

June is looking to be a really good month.

I still have to show you the giveaway that I won and the yarn that Dave bought me when he got out of the hospital.
