Nativity Set

This is my very favorite crochet project. I made this set about 12 years ago, and it won my very first blue ribbon at the Middletown Grange Fair. I look forward to the holidays every year so that I can bring it out and display it. I hope to be able to make 2 more sets - one for each of my sons.

Pink Ribbon Afghan

I started this afghan a few weeks ago. I bought it as a kit from Mary Maxim. It's lovely. However, I encountered a slight problem. With 6 rows left to finish, I have enough yarn to finish one row! I've contacted the Mary Maxim company, and they say that a number of customers had a problem with the kit, and they'll be happy to send me additional yarn. I hope it gets here in time, as I promised this afghan to the Estee Lauder Companies online auction to raise money for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

Additional Photo from Grange Fair

This is the crossed half-double crochet scarf, my fourth entry in the Grange Fair. I'll be giving it as a Christmas gift.
