New project & a piece of my mind..

I'm almost finished with the Groovyghan and wanted to get ready for my next project. I saw this gorgous Log Cabin afghan here and wanted to try my hand at making one. Isn't this beautiful?

Micki and I went to Hobby Lobby yesterday and this is what I got.....
I want to make this in shades of black and gray. Wish me luck.
Check out this Babette from the same site. She uses it in her header...
Here's another of her beautiful work...

We are going to the Southern Woman's Show in about an hour. Going to have fun!!
I just want to speak about a comment that was made regarding my post about the 'retro style' photos. I only expressed my opinion. I did not hold a shotgun to anyone's head demanding that they never use this style of photo editing. But one blogger felt she had to be hateful and make a snide remark just because I mispelled a word. For God's sake, I should have written "too", but I typed 'to' instead! Holy Crap, the world is coming to an end!! Never mind that her latest post was full of grammar mistakes and misspelled words! She does no wrong but doesn't mind pointing out other's errors.
On top of all of this drama, three followers have stopped following me. Why? If I offended anyone, I apologize but I will always speak my mind because I have the right to do so. To stop following someone for trivial nonsense is ridiculous. Oh well, your loss not mine.
Now that I have gotten that off of my chest I feel much better. On to the Woman's show! Hope you have a wonderful weekend also!

Sorry that that happened to you Charlotte. Whenever I post an opinion on something I always get a snide remark from someone. Seems like there are alot of 'holier than thou' people out there.

Have a good time at the Southern Woman's Show. :)

That's horrible to have someone come and attack you on your own blog. I love your blog posts! Just be who you are and forget those who wanna bring you down!

I'm sorry if my comment came across as 'hateful and snide' but it wasn't intended that way so my apologies if you took offence. I enjoy your blog and am a big believer in free speech. I was also expressing my opinion but maybe it came across as blunt.

My apologies if you were offended.

Your Babette looks beautiful!! You had asked about mine. I used a fingering weight yarn and randomly changed colors in each granny. The blanket came out so small I added the blue band around it to make it a bit larger, which made me love it even more!!

Enjoying your blog!

I for one believe in speaking your mind. I just happened to come across your blog this A.M. so I joined your followers to help make up for those lost. Loved your Babette and can't wait to see your log cabin design. As I am a Northerner what is the "Southern Woman's Show"? And why don't we have a Northern Woman's Show? :) Hope you have a nice day!
