A few days I finally finished the first of 3 knitted states afghans. Each square is a different state. The squares measure like 8 by 8, with five squares across and ten down. So it is long and narrow. I started it as a project to use up some of the extra yarn that I have. Also thought it would make a nice gift to grandchildren when they are studying geography of the states. This is a project that I will work when I am not working on other projects. I still have two more to finish, and each one has only 3 more rows to do. And the border. The squares work up fairly easy, most in one day. That is when I have the time to sit down and work on them.

I also have finished up one more of the beaded purses. Working on the last one of those that I need to do. At the same time, I am also working on a plastic canvas project. It works up in 4 parts. First part is the Alphabet Book, then Colors, Numbers and then How To Do. Each book is then put into it 's own bag. I am making three of these for Christmas and birthday gifts for the 3 youngest grandchildren. When I finish up with the first book, will post a picture or two.
