I thought I'd give you a little update on the status of the Jigsaw Puzzle blanket. It's going very, very slowly. I finally found a few minutes and worked up three more sets of squares. These are the Amethyst, Coral and Shocking Pink. Barn Red and Kiwi are next.
This evening, I spent about 30 minutes at the most and wrote out a quick pattern for a "Buckeye Pouch Necklace". I have a nephew that loves Buckeye's. I give him one every year at Christmas time and once in a great while, one will get lost. So, I decided to make him a necklace to hold this years buckeye.
