End of August Update

My ornament for August is Lizzie Kate's Rejoice on 32 ct Cobblestone Belfast with one strand of CC floss.  It was hard to believe the 1998 copyright on this free chart.  20 years.... where does time go?
Much of this month's needlework time was spent on making this Lilliana by Hooked on Sunshine.  Christmas gift making has begun, and this is for someone who loves the beach.  I made mine with slightly more than 7 cakes of Lion Brand Cupcake in Moody Blue and a 4 mm hook,  Great pattern with excellent directions.
I also made part 7 of Red Agape's Casual Granny CAL.... a very colorful addition this month.  I think there is only one month of squares left to go now.
And I started an Atlanticus by Hooked on Sunshine using Lion Brand Mandala in Chimera for yet another Christmas gift.  This needs a serious blocking,  I will do that once I come to the end of this current yarn cake.
Hubby dropped this pretty red Gerbera daisy off at my office this week.  I am a lucky lady 😙😙
