He worked with me with lots of patience (lol...i am very picky & annoying at times). But it was worth it all. He did a wonderful job. I'm very pleased with it.

Diamonds are forever...












Diamonds are forever...they take forever to make...but I love the end result!  And as you can see so does my Gaby.

I have to make 4 small squares to make 1 diamond... sewing each together.

It's time consuming but if you follow the same pattern for each. it all lines up beautifully.

With all the color options out there...you truly can come up with something gorgeous. I really don't have a color scheme...I'm just trying to get rid of my stash so I can fill it up again (you stashers know what I mean).

Hope you like it...I do.  It measures 63" x 63" so far.  I have to try to figure out how to convert my square into a rectangle...so I can use it as a bedspread...but we'll see what i come up with.

Hope you guys have a great weekend.

Have Fun & Be Happy making...anything,
Mayra

Block by Block...Square by Square. I will get there!

63" X 63" so far



more squares



20" X 20"

I have been working on this for a while...I love projects like this because I can freestyle and take my time with them. I did make a pillow for a king with a crown full of jewels and everything...it was also very fun and very dear to my heart.

I'm alternating solid squares and "diamond" squares. The diamond blocks are the most time consuming but in front of the tv...i knock them out without too much effort.
These squares are 9" X 9". And there really is no pattern or color chart that I'm following for it...I'm just busting my stash and having fun.

By now this project measures 63" X 63". It's growing and I think it's a keeper...because I usually make projects like this and give them away.

Well, I hope you guys are having a wonderful week. It's hump day...but we will make it!

I'll keep you posted and updated.

Happy Hooking,
Mayra

Finally got a copy...



I've heard about this book for so many years and how I HAD TO READ IT!

I finally got my hands on a copy and I am loving it so far.  A MUST READ!

Today it's very cold and I have a little free time to do WHATEVER I WANT...so I figure I get started on my new read.

Hope you guys try this one.  And if you did already...well...grab any book and a cup of tea or joe and have a few minutes of you time.

We all need it and deserve it!

Have a great day guys. Stay Warm or Cool (depends where you are in the world).

Here we go again...


Today we have snow and more snowwwww.  Here on the East Coast we just keep getting slammed with snow storms.  I love it (sometimes). But it's just too much. I am so looking forward to Spring!!!

I will take the time to work on one of my many WIPs projects.  Another blanket for all this cold weather.

A sneak peek for you here:




Hope everyone is safe, warm and cozy.  I know the weather is not great for some but we have to make the best of it!

Have a great day guys,
Mayra
