Here's the afghan I'm working on (it's a kit from Herrschner's). I liked the combination of squares and ripples, and I couldn't resist the pattern name! It's a bit of a pain because there are so many color changes---there are dozens of tails to weave in.
Wow, that is beautiful!! Love the colors & pattern!

Sounds cool! What color or pattern are you making?

Boo to hockey masks & the woods!!
Cargo vans also creepy!

Good afternoon, MMC!!

How are you guys doing?

I had a fabulous little road trip to see my sister & niece. We had fun browsing around, and then had a delicious lunch. Then, Aly & I played in the kids area there. Here's a pic of us playing school:

I made a few stops on the way home. There's a beautiful church in Independence, so I stopped for a few photos. Here's one of them..

...And then I stopped at this wonderful little shop in Eleva, called Family Farms Market. They make their own cheese, wine, chocolates, etc. & have locally produced meats & fish too. They also have a beautiful gift shop & restaurant. It's awesome, and I will go back... Often!

Here's a pic of the outside:
