Friday Contest and Turkey Tracks

I have been working on a new doily this week, and it did not go as I had planned. 
It is supposed to be an Autumn/Thanksgiving themed doily, and I thought it would be pretty to  incorporate  rounds of little Autumn leaves worked in different colors.  But I just couldn't seem to get the leaves to look right. After several failed attempts, I tried working groups of 3 tr clusters together. I thought the result was pretty, but it really  looked more like a bird foot or  track than a leaf to me. "It looks like a turkey foot," I thought. And the more I thought about it, the more the idea grew on me; why not have rounds of turkey tracks instead of leaves? That is certainly a Thanksgiving theme! So, the name of the doily was changed to "Turkey Tracks." I should have the pattern ready for you next week. 
But it is Friday, so let's have a contest!  I will give one person their choice of any PDF pattern on my site, bellacrochet.com or  my Etsy shop bellacrochetEtsy
I will select the winner at random, and send out the patterns in the morning (Saturday.) I will post the name of the winner here, so be sure to check back in the morning to see if you won. If I do not hear back from the winner within 7 days, I will select a new winner. Failure to contact me will result in the forfeiture of all prizes. 
Also, if you post anonymously, please be sure I have a way to identify you (at least give your first name or a nick name in your comment; I have no way of knowing who is posting.) You can also leave your email address with your comment so I can notify you if you win, but this is optional. 
To enter, just leave a comment answering this question: 
Do you have a crochet project going right now? 
This contest is now closed. Please stop by again soon!

Well, of course I have a crochet project going right now! What else would I be doing? LOL

Yes, I am crocheting Christmas tree-shaped ornaments using size 10 thread. They will be different colors (yes, I know Christmas trees do not normally come in pink, but...) for the grands. They will be package trims that can be ornaments next year. Every year I make them ornaments. They must have quite a collection by now!

At this moment, I've joined the "Worlds Biggest Stocking" to add to our Hero's that serve this Country, stocking. I'm pretty excited to see the outcome of it when it's done by people across the Country! So this is what I'm working on :)

I've always have something on my hook. Right now I have a doily and I'm putting squares together for senior lapghans. I love crocheting!

My current crochet projects are boot cuffs, hats, and scarves. I would like to make some new doilies and a table runner this winter too. Happy Holidays to you, Susan N.

As usual I have several going at once! I keep one by my recliner, one by my bed, & usually a couple more that I got bogged down in (or were for myself & were pushed to the side to work on projects for other people!). One can never have enough yarn, patterns, or projects!

I have too many to count and a white board list of what needs to be done... Unfortunately, my whiteboard has been rubbed against too many times and I can't read half of it!
