Craft, games and more
Gaming hasn't really happened this week.  Craft wise I spent most of my time working on this secret project, the Autumn Leaf Dreams commissioned blanket which is now complete...




Other projects include doing 2 rows of squares on this cute baby blanket...




.....and then a few more (updated picture... ^-^)...





Also did a little baking and made these TASTY rolls...
