Receiving Blanket

Something else that I love to make and I normally have one or two going whether I need them for gifts or not are receiving blankets.  I like to have a couple completed and put away for gifts.  I used these when my daughter was a baby and they are my go to shower gift.  It is a simple yard of flannel that I turn under twice by hand and simply stitch down(that stitching is removed later) and then I crochet around the edge with DMC Yarn.  Here is a sneak peek, I am working on the tutorial….Stay tuned!





Enjoy your day!

Hats, Hats and More Hats!

I have been a little busy, just me and my crochet hook!!  Well, occassionally just me and my knitting needles. I am enjoying the feeling of completed projects.  Here is a look at the berets that I have been working on.

I made 6 of these and dropped them off on consignment at my girlfriend’s store.  Along with 2 pairs of wristwarmers!

Then I decided to pull out my knitting needles and here is a sneak peak of a WIP!

So much yarn, so little time.

Well off to bed for me!  More to show tomorrow!

Little New, Little Old!

I had seen a pattern for a purse in The Happy Hooker that I have been dying to make.  Yes, I know I have lots of other projects I should be working on, but I decided a little detour would be some good therapy for me (I was right).  So, when we got back from our Super Bowl Party it was too early to go to bed and hubby was watching basketball, I thought I would start my purse.  That way I am spending time with him and getting something done at the same time.  The purse went together so quickly and the final product is so much nicer than I thought it would be.

I added a lining made of vintage fabric (a piece from a vintage sheet) and then I knitted up these cute little flowers for the front.  And there it is!  Not sure what I am going to do with it, should I use it, should I sell it, should I give it away?!?!?!? Decisions, decisions.

Maybe I should leave it up to you.  What do you think?
