September Update

 September brought very few finishes for me, even though I felt as if I stitched and crocheted often.  Some months are just like that, though.  I did make my monthly Christmas ornament.  I chose Noel by Nikyscreations in the JCS 2018 Christmas Ornament Issue.  I stitched mine on 40 ct Vintage Country Mocha with the called for DMC floss.  It's small and cute, and I love it.
 I also made my way through the month's installment for Redagape's Casual Granny CAL.  This is the Happy Hippy Square.  I chose colors that make the flowers look like suns.  I think they will be cheerful in my blanket.
I have been focusing a lot on Hooked on Sunshine's Atlanticus and hope to be finished very soon.  This will be a Christmas gift for someone special and am using Lion Brand Mandala yarn in Chimera.  I have learned with this design to count, count some more and then count again 😉😉😉😉😉😉
