Sampler Afghan Throw for Alice and Karl's new life together

The turquoise pattern is an original. 
Other patterns are from Lion Brand.  These are "jewel tone" colors. 
The background rug is in the house in Schroon Lake.  
Many early morning were hours spent creating these lovely squares while looking out at the mist rise over the lake.

Sharpie Holder

Challenge: what to do with my Sharpie pens that were too numerous to fit nicely into any cups or glasses.  Make one! 
Adding to the fun of such a concrete and finite project is the multi colored yarn.  One never knows the pattern that will emerge as one progresses.  
To give the cup heft and sturdiness, some card stock was cut to size.
