I did get to start on the Stained Glass Magic (SGM) afghan onver the weekend. It is going great! I was able to get a little over 6 (I think) bubble rows done. I really like doing this one, even if I do have some trouble with the 3 things of yarn kinda tangling sometime. I also worked a little more on the Indian style afghan last night.
Well, better get back to thinking about taxes and the tax program.

And here is a close-up of it.
I also worked some more on the Indian style afghan and decided what I wanted to do with that so have been working on it, too.
We are getting our first major snow of the season today...at least it is snow and not ICE like last January! At least I didn't need to get out in it today.

Anyway, as to what I'm working on right now...I started an Indian style afghan (3 times, actually) and still am not satisfied with how it is looking. So it is being put aside for a while and I'm going to attempt to make a Stained Glass Magic afghan with some help and advice from some new friends in the CAL for it on Ravelry. It is called the Magic Ball CAL. It can be found in the group 'I Love Crochet Afghans!' on Ravelry and the pattern is also available for sale on Ravelry. Here is a link to the pattern: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/stained-glass-magic and here is a link to the Ravelry group: http://www.ravelry.com/groups/i-luv-crochet-afghans
I have made 3 magic balls this afternoon so I am ready to get started on this.

Anyway, life goes on. I have been crocheting (of course) and have gotten some Christmas gifts finished and made some more afghans just because. I'll post some pictures one of these days.
Going on a cruise in just a few days! Leaving home for Miami this Friday, will board the Liberty of the Seas Saturday morning for a 7 day cruise of the Western Caribbean. Going with our friends (who are also my bosses!) Mike and Sally. It is the first cruise for them and we are all excited.
Today we are going the Mama's to have a family birthday party for Kaitlyn who turned 7 on Oct 2.

Anyway, been busy here. Trying to do some much needed house cleaning. And I joined weight watchers on line last week and started the program on Monday. So I have been busy reading and studying about what I needed to do for that and spending a lot of time on the computer looking for recipes.
Mama has decided it is time for her to move into assisted living so we are going to her house tomorrow and helping her to move in. Will be a big adjustment but I think she is making the right decision. Yesterday was her 85th birthday!
Have done very little crocheting lately but have done some.
Made final payment on our October cruise on Monday. That means it won't be long now!
