Block no.5.....

Block no.5 in my
Block of the Week Project
I made block #3 Square Target
from the book
200 Crochet Blocks
by Jan Eaton
I know this will be a block I will use block again in future projects,
as it was very simple and quick.
.....................................
And now for some new Book Love
My Brother & Sister in law
recently gave me this scrumptious book
there are some truly gorgeous afghans in it
like this one.....
oh and this!
so much to crochet, so little time :D

I hope you are having a lovely day
however you choose to spend it

Happy New Year Gillian. How wonderful I also got the Jan Eaton book for Christmas and although I have not yet begun, I wanted to make each square from the book also. I should pull my finger out and join you. I think a block a week could be achieved. Would you mind if I tagged along with you? Your chosen colours are wonderful too.

Thanks ladies :)

To Joyce,
Oh that would be so much fun to watch you make squares from the book also!

I find one block a week is good as it doesn't interfer too much with other projects you are working on ;)

I recently bought that book Comfort Knitting and Crocheting Afghans for myself and LOVE it! I browse the pics over and over again... So luscious!
