WIP Wednesday (18 July 2012)

Not much done this week--only a few more squares.

After the purple squares, I'm going to go with a round of squares in greens. The greens that are here are for the corners. Once those are done and everything is sewn together, I plan on going around the entire thing one or two times in off white.

I'm sharing this at:

I've Been Thinking...

I want to make something out of  the African Flower Hexagon. I'm thinking of making an afghan out of them but a big butt here-- I really, really need to finish some ufos before I start anything else.  I need to weave the ends in on the last afghan I made and finish up the baby blanket I'm working on. I'm not spending too much time crocheting lately because this heat is getting to me. If I spend much time outside I don't have the motivation to do much more than a granny square or 2.

I've also been irritated/sad/disgusted with some things I've seen on a social site recently. There have been some postings that make fun of God, not religion(s) but God. When I wrote "not nice" some one else posted that everyone is entitled to their own opinion. I wonder what these people are thinking????

Yesterday I went to a military burial. It was the first one I've been to since the law was changed in 2008 that now allows veterans in civilian clothing to salute during taps and the national anthem. I was proud to salute when taps was playing. It felt more respectful and fitting to salute a fellow veteran.

I've been rambling here so I think I'll get out of here and do something constructive.

Take care...
