Another item started

I actually thought I’d get back to my other treasure box foot rest that I’m designing, or back to my parents Xmas gift.  Well that didn’t quite work out as planned.  I recieved an order for a layette set with dress today, and I want to finish it up first.  Don’t like making those last minute.  So for next couple of days I will be working on that.  Will post a pic upon completion.


Autumn Squares

These are 4 squares I whipped up without a pattern today.  I sure hope they look okay.  They are going to a friend for a comfortghan.

Work in Progress

I have an ornament almost finished, and am still working on a tablecloth.  I also took the time today to write some directions out for a new crocheter, for which I took pictures of every round to hopefully make it easier.  I am so glad that the Ville seems to be working fine since it came back online Friday.

Post Stitch Baby Afghan

This is an afghan made to match the layette set.  I only had 1 skein of the blue left,  so I used it as an accent to the white.  The color in this picture is closer to the actual color compared to the layette set, I guess it was the lighting.

Spring Into Winter Hat

I tested this original pattern for Melissa Whitley from Crochetville.  I used a larger hook so it would fit a young teenager.  I think its a great pattern and very easy.


Post Stitch Layette Set

This is the Post Stitch Layette Set from Leisure Arts Layettes for Baby.  I did make my own pattern for the hat since it is a boy.  I thought this pull on hat would be better, no ties to worry about.

Thanks pal

I wanted to write a thank you here on my blog for all the help received from KnicKnac of KnicKnac’s Corner.  She helped me get my buttons on my blog.  And I was able to add hers by myself.  She also taught me how to do the thumbnails  which are great.  Crocheting can really bring you great and long lasting friendships.  Thanks Pal.

Table Top Charm

Wow another item off my to finish list.  This is Table Top Charm from Annie’s Attic daily patterns.  It wasn’t quite big enough for my friends table so I just added a couple rows to it.  I am pleased with it and hope she likes it.

Teal and Tassels Treasure Box Foot Rest

This is number 4 of a project  I am designing.  I still have 1 more to design to give as a gift, then I am going to design one for myself.

Gingerbread Man

 I finished the cute Mr & Mrs Gingerbread man this week, It was a test pattern and I think the designer did a great job.  I also finished a scarf and a tablecloth.  The tablecloth isn’t as big as what I need so am in the process of figuring out how to make it a little bigger.  I also have another of my treasure boxes almost finished.

I managed to finish organizing my craft room yesterday with a little help from a friend.  She has been a crocheter for years but couldn’t read patterns.  I am working with her on that.

My sister’s wedding went great, she was thrilled with the photo album I made.  I still think flowers on it would have looked nice, but she said no, she’s not a frilly person.
