Slow Stitching Progress. My "Go-To" Book for Crochet Borders!

Hello There, Everybody!
Thank you for stopping by!  Here in New Mexico, we're still enjoying temperatures in the high 80's!  Definitely a change for us, but my family is definitely enjoying our bumper crops of grape tomatoes!  

I'm so glad you're here today!

Slow Stitching
I'm staying caught up with Carole's Sunday Stitch Along Autumn Jubilee Wool Appique.  I blogged about it here and here.  Here is my progress thus far:
All the leaves and veins are sewn on.  I've opted out of sewing on the button embellishments.  The last step will be to iron on some interfacing to lock in the embroidery stitches and add the backing.  I'm pretty sure I should have a finished mat this week!  Yea!  Thank you, Carole, for such a fun Stitch Along!  

I've also finished some more circles for this afghan:
 This afghan is for Baby M2.  I've shared this border before.  The border for Baby M2's afghan should have 42 yellow, blue, yellow and green circles.  I've crocheted all the blue circles and 1/2 of the yellow ones.  
Agan, here is the my go to book for crocheted borders.  

For some reason I am in love with dots lately!  I'm making a dot quilt as well as this dot afghan!

By the way, I'd appreciate if you follow me on Pinterest or on Instagram @miaismine22!

Have a great evening, everybody!  Take good care!

I'm linking up to Kathleen's Sharing Sundays and Kathy's Slow Sunday Stitching. Hopefully you'll have a chance to check them out and perhaps link up your own projects!  

Blessings to all!

Dear Friend, 
this is my truth!

    1. Thank you so much! I'm eager to finish this one up as I have never made a border like the one pictured before! :) I'm glad you stopped by and commented! Have a great weekend!
