Keeping my hands busy at least

Well I haven’t done much stitching since finishing the last of the Christmas presents.  I went to my cousin’s for a week after Christmas and while I brought something to stitch I never got around to it.  Got it in my head that I wanted to crochet something and I had received Michaels gift cards for Christmas so I purchased some yarn (the colour is “Lotus” from Bernat Super Value) and I have a book of Birthstone Afghans by Liesure Arts so I tried a few swatches and “November” won.  I’m not an expert at crochet but I can manage this pattern.  This yarn has my fave colours in it, in the shades I like.
