I wanted to do a quick post tonight, to show my sixth square, called Summer Romance, for my Calendar 'Ghan. April has been the hostess and designer for this crochet-along at Dishcloth Diaries. As I began this square, I could hardly BELIEVE this meant I am nearly half-way done!.. Half-way through the YEAR now? Is this POSSIBLE? Well, I guess it MUST be! The patterns for these squares are just beautiful, and April does a fabulous job writing these patterns. I still am tempted to start a second set of squares, so to make two of these afghans at the same time. I like the idea of having the two done ahead for Christmas gifts, which would then bring my count for afghans-in-progress up to FOUR! That's a little scary, but I still just might do it!
Well, I wanted to do some baking today, but that didn't happen. It is just too hot and muggy to be running the oven for the length of time I know it will take. I always do double batches! Nope!.. For the moment, having finished my June square, I'm putting the crochet hook down, at least for the evening. No, I haven't lost my head, and I'm not running a temperature! I just have my nose in a good book tonight! I'm about 2/3rds of the way through the book Twilight now, by Stephenie Meyer, and it's just getting too GOOD to put down now! I want to see the movie that has been out on DVD, but I refuse to watch it until I finish the book first! Of course, I need to get started on the second book, New Moon, before that movie comes out in November! I also hear that Edward and Bella collector dolls will be out this Fall, so you KNOW how excited I must be about THIS!
In the meantime, is anybody eagerly awaiting Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, the movie, like I am? Based on the series of books by J.K. Rowling, this one will be in theatres on July 15th! I've already read ALL of the books in this series, and the the kids and I, ALL want to see it as soon as we can!
