Just in time!!  I finished up my Ocean Waves Challenge Afghan last night…  Took pictures today and submitted it to the contest!  It turned out just the way my daughter wanted too!  She chose the color scheme and the way the color changes took place… I think she did a great job, and all I had to do is whip it up in one months time!  It feels great to have finished, time to move on to other projects now!!

I found the most wonderful quick project at one of my favorite sites… Petals to Picots!  Kara is one of my favorite bloggers and has great patterns and Link Parties!  A couple of weeks ago she posted a pattern for Flower Cleansing Pads,,, I couldn’t wait to give them a try and I wasn’t disappointed!  They were quick to work up and the pattern is very easy to follow!  Click Here to check out her pattern.  Check out what I made in just a couple of hours last night…
