It’s only end of month! We still have one more month before the season is over.

I love all of your collage work!

I thought we’d started in March, I guess :woman_facepalming:t2: :laughing:. Well, at least now I’m caught up…

Back on Cster, that was our schedule. We shifted everything on LC to start one month later. It throws me off sometimes, too. Especially the summer season. It does feel like we should be starting the summer season right now! Spring and fall don’t feel so off, but summer and winter do to me.

I mean, we are more on track with the (Northern Hemisphere) meteorological seasons. But you’re right, culturally we start everything earlier than that :laughing:.

Okay, even though it looks like I’m just popping in to compliment dump and run, I’m going to pop in to compliment dump and run! I don’t know what is wrong with me these days, I can’t stay on any sort of schedule and I don’t seems to frequent my favorite internet places as much. I blame work for making me anti-computer time!

@storerboughtcreation - adorable cross-stitch! And your word-burning is amazing! I love the snail granny square, but I can see where it would have been a pain.

@megwell - Nice journal pages and art, I feel like I need to get back into that, it looks so much fun! Creative Taskmastering with the cat, I do love that show!

@Lynx2Lancer - ooooh, nice bottlecap crafts! THat Lettuce Craft ATC map is fab! I love maps and crafting… one of these days I’ll craft a map…

@ezrib - Gyros are one of my favorite sandwhiches, but I never make them at home - that looks delish! Great job on your first cross-stitch!

@roler - I’m working on a dishcloth right now, I love that they’re small and portable, yours is so bright and cheery! I might need to try out that pattern! Baby dino is adorable, as is Psyduck!

@gozer - That custom doll is amazing!

@geekgirl - OMG those embroideries are AMAZING! I love Starry Night and that one, in particular, is gorgeous! The birds are amazing, too!

@Bunny1kenobi - Oh, the minatures! Your miniatures are so amazing, I love them all! But maybe the apothecary cabinet a little more than the others (but don’t tell them that).

@imera - Eeeeh, more mini things, so cute! I have a soft spot for mini things…

Okay, caught up on gushing, on to the next month’s prompts! Which are up, now!

Project Name: ombre aran cabled blanket
Project Link:
Brief Description: I had some Red Heart Super Saver in aran that I got from a thrift store. That’s the lighter color. I ran out and Mr SBC picked up two new skeins of the same brand, same color. Apparently Red Heart changed their color, because it’s now much darker. It’s more of an oatmeal. A bit disappointing, but it gives the blanket an ombre effect, which is sort of fun. Monkey’s tail is photobombing the upper corner of the photo :heart_eyes_cat:
