Orange yes or no

Hello, another starting of a fall week and I wanted to share with you my Afghan
that I have finally finished.

It's ORANGE....Yup nice and bright and cheerful!
Just what the soul needs on an overcast rainy day!

Too bright for you?

I started this Afghan a few months last fall...yes I know I start and then stop
but I did finish just in time to celebrate Fall!

This yarn was purchased in WalMart...Red Heart Super Saver. colour Carrot.
It took 5 balls in total to crochet with a 5.5mm hook.

An easy pattern , row after row of double crochet.

Working away crocheting in the Living Room!

                                                    Here in the Great Room!

Now that I have finished this Afghan I'm working on some other fall projects made out of
Dollar Store Items.....
I'll be sharing them soon.....can you guess?

Oh yes we also finished the haunted house that Miss A and I worked on this summer.

These pics were taken the other day when the sun was streaming in....can you see who just walked in?

This Afghan and my new rug hooked pillow were just two projects that I 
started last fall!!

Don't they look great together!

                                                    Thanks for following along,

  1. YES to the orange!! It's perfect for this time of year and looks great in your living room with that pretty pillow!

    1. Thanks Martina!
      It makes a dull day seem so much brighter!

  2. They do look great together! The carrot is a lovely Fall colour especially pretty paired with the pillow and the leather. It looks like your rug has warm colours too. It always takes me a while to finish projects so one year is pretty impressive. Have a great week!

  3. Oh great. Now I NEED an orange afghan! It would actually look quite nice in my living room. Hmmm...

  4. It looks lovely Linda. I've used the carrot colour along with some others to make an afghan in fall colours for a friend.

  5. Your work is beautiful . The orange really pops looks wonderful ! Thanks for sharing . Have a good day !

  6. Your new afghan is great for fall and matches your beautiful pillow perfectly on your leather sofa. I expect it will come in handy on the cooler fall evenings.

  7. I love your pretty orange afghan! I think it brings nice Fall color to your room. I really like how it coordinates with the pillow you made too. It is dreary and rainy here too.

  8. They do look gorgeous!!! I love the afghan and the pillow together on the dark couch. Great job!

  9. I love the color and it goes so well in your home!!! I actually don't see it being orange, but pumpkin!!! I can't wait to see your $ Store fall projects!!!

  10. YES! It looks fabulous! LOVE that pillow too! It may take you awhile but it is worth the wait!!!!

  11. I love the orange pop of color! To me it's quite perfect for fall. Looks cozy. The pillow sets the stage. I made a hooked rug/picture many years ago. I didn't think I'd ever finish it but I finally did!
