Cross Stitched Alphabet ATC's

My group is doing three letters for this swap...B, C, & D. It's challenging finding different fonts of
letters that I really like. Plus I like to add some thing decorative to each card. So far this is what I have done... I'm still working on my third card, but will add it to this post as soon as it's finished.
 The pattern I had originally decided on for the letter D didn't fit on an ATC card like I thought it would. I bought the thread colors and every thing.
I'm getting most of my patterns off Pinterest or other free sites.
Gotta love technology for that alone.

Crochet Crowd Mystery Afghan

Last weeks border was so fun...this week, week9, not so much. I'm not sure if it turned out the same for a lot of other people, but this weeks bordered for me turned out a bit wavy...almost a ruffle. I'm pretty sure it's supposed to be flat! Not sure if I will take the time to go back and change it or not. I hate to be invested in it this far to not finish it to my liking though. To RIP or not to RIP that is the question for this week!

Crochet Crowd Mystery Afghan Wk 8

Week 8 started the edging of the afghan. I really liked the looks of it so far, and it was pretty fun to crochet the twisted/crossed triple crochet stitch once I got the hang of it. It took me longer to pick it up and get started on this than it did for me to complete these two steps.
Clue/week 9 will add more layers to the edging we just finished. Very close to being done....I can see the light at the end of the tunnel:)

Happy Easter!

I found these adorable bunnies and chicks while serfing the net. Doesn't look like the bunny WIP I have is going to get done on many projects at once:) Finished the chick for one of my sons friends, her favorite color is purple and I just happened to have a couple different shades on hand so that's what I went with. She loved it!  These are great scrap yarn projects.
