My first go at tapestry crochet (graphghan)

OK, so after I discovered graphghans I was excited to start one! 

But I know me and when 
I jump in head first I tend to make mistakes and then get bored. 
So, I decided to try a trial tapestry until I got the hang of it... before I started a huge afghan project that would end up taking me two years to make!
(I have been working on a blanket for the Old Man for going on three years now!)

My Ladybug is really into music and plays flute so we decided to make a tapestry to hang in her room. 

This is what we came up with:

A treble clef worked in grey and hot pink to match her room.

This is about halfway through. At this point we took a trip to Florida to see my Big Baby graduate high school so it was put on hold.

Here is where we are today!

Just a few more rows to go and a few embellishments and Viola! One lovely tapestry to hang on Ladybug's wall! :)

I will post the completed project soon. 
Now it's time to pop in Sherlock and get this baby finished!

Happy Saturday Everyone!!

Every ballerina needs a tutu!

This was made for my niece. I wanted to see if I could make one and see how it worked up.

I fell in love with it once it was completed and can't wait to get started on another!

 There is no pattern as I made it up as I went using photos and size 9 mo measurements.

I can't wait to see Miss Anna all dressed up in her first tutu!

Photo Props

Here are a couple of photo props I made for my niece and nephew!  I was rather proud of these!

 I made her three different color tops because 
I wasn't sure what color her Mommie wanted :)

Who knew afghans could be so much fun!!
