Wonderful times at the lake...

We went to Wildcat Lake with friends the last 2 weekends I got really sunburned the last time but feeling better now.
Hubby got to water ski a bit tried to get a picture but missed him standing up lol
We took our boat and our friends had theirs so we rode around the whole lake.
So of the kids got pulled on the raft and knee boards they had a blast.

I just swam and enjoyed being in the water.
Not sure if we are going back this weekend or not as it is supposed to be in around 99 each day.

I also got some crocheting done, did the week 2 blocks of the Princess CAL
I'm making this one for my granddaughter who will be born in October.

I also got part 5 done on the Mandala Madness CAL , I'm calling it "Stormy Seas"
Finished the Not Your Grandma's CAL, love the way it came out with the variegated purple cotton yarn.
I'm also finally on the last row of the ATB CAL can't wait to finish it this week.
Been working on testing a crochet pattern so can't show pictures of it yet, but will when I can.
That is all for now. Hope everyone has a Blessed Week!

Been crocheting....

Week 1 2 of 4 LDOTB CAL
 A lot lately I'm doing the Lance Dance on the Beach Cal ...."As many of you know, this CAL was designed by the late Marinke Slump ( aka : Wink) from www.acreativebeing.com and was the final design she was working on at the time of her passing. In accordance with the wishes of Marinke’s family, 12 of her online friends and bloggers have completed her unfinished design to present this beautiful and sensitive CAL in Marinke’s memory and as a tribute to her work."
Dancing Under the Stars yarn
I'm using the Dance Under the Stars colorway because of my meds I can't go to the beach except at night or when it is very overcast, so I thought it would be the best colorway for me. I've got 2 of the 4 for the first week done and they are now on week 5 or 6 I think but not worried about being behind will get it finished in my time :-)
ATB Inning 13
 I'm also trying to finish up the ATB Cal from last year, Christmas presents and grandbaby blankets had it put on hold but I did get Inning 13 done and working on Inning 14 now.
Mandala Madness part 1
 I also started the MM CAL (picture above) saving all the patterns and will do it when I can.
Ladybug graph
 The other thing I'm learning is doing graphgans, this one is in single stitch and I'm doing the colors to match my latch hook wall hanging I did years ago.
I hope everyone has a Blessed Weekend. It is Memorial Day Monday so it is a long weekend for us in the USA. I will be stitching lol.
