fingers crossed

I haven't felt very crafty lately. Hopefully I get a burst of energy this weekend, and fingers crossed I'm not getting sick- er. 
Here is my 2nd Fall Colored Giant Granny Square so far. 
I love love love crocheting! I'm using the "I love this yarn" yarn brand and I do, I love it! First - it comes in extra large rolls, second - it's super soft! Only problem, I got it at Hobby Lobby and that's not one close by, so who else sells this yarn? Anyone know?

Once I really get a handle on this square business I'm going to try new patterns! 

Here is the last project I worked on for the Cupcake Queen herself, Jessy!
I made her a pillow from my favorite designer's fabrics, Anna Maria Horner. I hand sewed the hexagons and machine quilted the pillow!
Then in the middle hexagon I did some free hand embroidering! 

I'm wishing everyone a wonderful weekend and a crafty one too, if that's what you do!
