Morning! Hope your day is going well.  Kids are off for a local holiday and the heat is sweltering here in Dubai.  I miss Seattle so much more on days like today.  Have a few things to show you today, some finishes.  First up is a scissor fob.

 Second is my own design is a series of Jane Austen quotes.  It is a sun glass case that was immediately snatched up from me by a good friend.

 "It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife" Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice

Cameo of Jane Austen.

Antique wooden button. 

Thank you for looking!  Have a wonderful day........Analisa xx

I have been doing a lot of crochet this past week.  Here is a picture of my finished afghan.  I used Caron Simply Soft.  I ran into a big problem,  Its a bit slippery so the knots would come open in the middle of the squares.  not good I had to repair about 5 so far.  Not good!

Have a great day!
