Say hello to my 8th granny square design - a stingray! I got my inspiration from Finding Nemo's Mr. Ray.  I love the spotted look of Mr. Ray and I wanted to incorporate that into this design!

I think he's very simple but will make a great addition to the other ocean friends I have currently designed.

This 8th squares puts me past the half-way mark *happy dance* and I "only" have 7 more to go!


I'm thrilled to be past the half way mark and every time I lay down my squares, I feel a sense of satisfaction. This afghan is coming together so beautifully with all the colors and I can't wait to have it all pieced together!
