Relief, oh relief!

I'm feeling quite relieved because Mom's scrapghan is all done! Yeah, baby! This bad boy took over a year - with lots of emotion and tears - to complete! I forgot to measure it before wrapping it up, but it fits the entire width and length of a queen size bed.



My friend Janet sent me the most amazing surprise in the mail. Its a gorgeous watch.



The time piece is removable because the other side of the watch is a bracelet that Janet made with beads. So you can switch the time piece with any other beaded bracelet. How cool is that?




Please forgive the dark pictures. Its been storming in NY the last few days and the light is terrible. After Friday's storm, everything has been iced up.



Today, its raining instead of snowing. Hopefully that will wash away the ice and yuckiness outside.

I agree - the afghan is beautiful! I have yet to attempt anything that large - I started to make my daughter a full-bed size granny square blanket last year, but got bored with it, and finished it before it got large enough to cover her bed, ha, ha!

The watch is beautiful too, and I love the photo of the icicles! We've had snow folllowed by rain here too (along with the dreaded black ice). : (

Christina I love the scrapghan you made it is gorgeous! Did you knit or crochet it? I live in NE PA and we got another 2" or 3" of snow Sunday, it was pretty, and not too much of a nuisance.
Your watch gift is beautiful as I am sure so is your friend.
