I've been enjoying the CAL (crochet-a-long) hosted by Lucy at Attic24 blog. This one is called "Dahlia" using colors from that beautiful flower. She releases a new section each Friday so we're all supposed to be done with the last.. and I just put the last stitch in! LOL! I'm happy that it's big enough now to keep my lap warm while I stitch along by the fire.
Here is the whole thing.. I really do love the ombre effect of the colors. It evokes images of fire when I look at it.
This is a lovely afghan that is nice and squishy and warm.
I volunteered at Multnomah Falls with my younger sister yesterday. It has been raining a lot so the falls were ROARING and full. Dayle came to pick me up and took my phone up to the falls to take a photo for me while we packed up our gear to come home. I got several questions from visitors about the blanket and gave out Lucy's URL to several people.
You know the falls are full when the extra waterfall shows up.
I've added a video I made of the sound of the falls to the bottom of this post, let me know what you think!
We had a quieter day in the visitors center as it was cold and rainy, but it's still nice to be there.
One last photo.
I'm happy to report that our daffodils are coming up and there are buds on them! This group is by our big rock with my metal goat on top. :-)
See the buds?
And the Snowdrops are coming up and we even have some in bloom!
The Irises are coming up too.. last year we had the weirdest thing happen.. none of our Irises bloomed.. why would that happen?
I wanted to share a couple of our best one pot meals. This was last night, rice, chicken thighs, sweet potatoes, green onions with a slice of bacon on top and we drizzled teriyaki sauce over the top, put it in the oven for 45 minutes at 450 deg. F.
This one was sausage, onions, zucchini and pinto beans with a bit of BBQ sauce drizzled over the top. Yum!
Enjoy the waterfall!
Have a fabulous weekend! I'm going to start on my 4th section of the afghan! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
