Making progress

I've been working on the Linen Brick stitch afghan lately, but in my little bit of free time, when I haven't had the afghan with me, I've accomplished this...
2 more pages in the 'pre-made' scrapbook,
I've cut the pieces for Baby E's black and pink polka dot dress. A sample of the fabric is under the ribbon...Now what? I don't know. Guess I'll call mom and ask...

Lastly, I took about 10 minutes and converted my previous centerpiece to a wreath for the inside of my front door.
I'm still not happy with the wreath, so who knows what it will become next. Plus, it fell off its makeshift hangar, and it no longer a circle. Oh well, so much for that. I'll stick with crocheting.

I've not had many creations to show you lately, but I have made 4 scrapbook pages. I'm trying to actually crop some things, to help shrink the hopeless pile of stuff in my craft room. the pages are quite simple, but who cares? They're done!

I'm still working on the linen color brick stitch afghan, and am making a lot of progress on it! I think it is coming out nicely, and the color is a nice neutral that goes with match most any room in the house.
I also am working on a tiny blanket for the hospital babies. I also found a pattern and will be making Baby E some mittens, now that it has gotten cold.
I've also been contemplating what our Christmas cards will be this year. I need to stop thinking and start stamping...

Thank You

A big and sincere THANK YOU to our troops - those who have served in any way shape or form in the past, to those currently serving, and to those who will serve in years to come. Thank you for protecting us, and allowing us to sleep at night.

Some guys my dad does some work with made this video. Their company (BP) sent care packages to the troops. Please be aware that this video includes real images from war.

Mom and I made Baby E's pumpkin costume this year, and I really enjoyed the sewing project! I can't wait to make the dress I've bought fabric for. I'll need mom's help with that too :) Here is her pumpkin, hat, and candy corn bag.

Thanks to Krissa for the encouragement, and the pointers on the pumpkin.

I have begun the beige ripple afghan, and as usual, love this pattern. Tonight, I also made a wreath centerpiece for Christmas, for our kitchen table. Here it is, sans bow. I'll post another pic once that is added. I may need to reposition some of the poinsettias once I see the bow. I thought it looked plain, and didn't realize I had forgotten the bow until I sat down to post the pic! Oh well, no big deal.
I don't have any crafts for Thanksgiving planned, but am looking for ideas!
