Whoop - Whoop Friday?!?!

Another Friday come and gone. Can you believe we are already half way through the first month of the year? I had wanted to join in on Whoop-Whoop Fridays this year, and so far just haven't made it. I really had meant to post this yesterday, but ended up going to bed a bit early and didn't get to it.

I decided to go ahead and post it anyway and call it Whoop-Whoop Friday Umm Saturday!!! Works for me:)

So for this week I did FINIALLY get something completed!!! Whoop-Whoop!!!

This is the baby blanket I was making for the friend of my hubby. You can see in the bottom picture that I used the star stitch and then two row of half double and another star stitch. The baby's room is painted purple, and they sent us a picture of the blanket in the room, the purples matched perfectly!!! I was guessing since I've not seen the room myself:) They really liked it and that makes it all worth doing (plus I really like crocheting:).
Well, back to stitching for me as I need to get those LoveQuilt blocks done very soon. This weekend is International Hermit and Stitch Weekend, so those LoveQuilt blocks are what I am working on:)

beautiful! the colors are fantastic together. I've never seen or done the star stitch. I'll have to work on that stitch.

That's a beautiful baby blanket, and such an interesting stitch - I don't think I've ever seen the star stitch before. I'll have to check it out.

Whoop whoop for a beautiful finish, destined to become someone's favorite woobie!
