Throwback Thursday!

June 13, 2016- When I finished the biggest item Ive ever made.

Ive actually thought about making another one. With lighter colors, more purple, and another design. There were a few finished designs to choose from depending on how many panels you wanted to make.

Ive wanted to make this a wall hanging but I don’t have enough wall space for something this size yet. For now it sits in an airtight bag.

New Project Monday

If you didnt catch my Year of Projects post from yesterday , check it out here or just continue reading.

I actually have 4 new projects. I always seem to have more than one WIP . ( work in progress) Some I forget for a few weeks, some for months. I have some going on years.

Up first…. I love scarecrows. So I wanted to make a cute little cuddler. ( Pattern by Once Upon a Hook crochet) I have the front and back panels done. This week I plan to make the legs and arms and the other little piecesย  for him. Behind the cuddler is a scarecrow flag…. or will be. Pattern by Snappy Tots

Also by Snappy Tots , Sweet Ridges Cupcake bag… I don’t really like working with thick yarn but I wanted to use this skein of Bernat Baby blanket yarn from my stash and Hometown USA Phoenix Azalea.

And closing out this post is Fair Isle slippers from Crochet magazine , Winter 2019 issue. As you can see I just started. I have small feet so I am making the 5/6 size which is the smallest size and they are about a half inch big ๐Ÿ™‚

A Year of Projects · Crochet stuff · WIPS

YOP9 week 7

I have finally gotten around to writing A Year of Projects post for year 9 . I am not sure what I want to do make for year 9. I think mainly tops for myself. I have finished one (see below ) and I have 3 on the hook(s).

This is the Kanata Kerchief Tank. It looks good on the hanger but it makes me look fat! Its the XL . I should of made the medium. I like somewhat baggy t-shirts but this is way to much.

Yarn Used : Red Heart Super Saver Fair Isle, Candy

WORK IN PROGRESS..

Below is the Aestas Top. I LOVE THIS !! I have many more rows to go. I may never take it off when its finished. I am heading to Tampa on Monday and I was hoping to be able to wear this but I don’t think I will have time to finish it in time.

Yarn Used: Red Heart Super Saver, Orchid.

And I am still on my c2c obsession .. Lovable Loops had a Alphabet blanket crochet along back in January. I made an E. The rest of my name will be coming soon in other shades of purple. I used Red Heart yarn, super saver accent and with love metallic.

New Blog Design

If you have visited my blog before you can see that I redesigned it. Well the background anyway. I am also thinking up a new idea of how to post my blogs. Other than just the blah here is a paragraph of what I did.. pictures… another paragraph…..

I’m going to try to add more about my daily life…

Get into some sewing… I have a sewing machine and some fat quarters so I should put them to use.ย  ๐Ÿ™‚

Maybe some other crafts as well… I always wanted to play with alcohol inks.

With the end of A Year of Projects year 8 next week, I need to get my brain in gear and think of something creative. ( it might just stay the same..lol )

Here’s a little slid show of a few of my faves of this past year.

YOP 8 wk 40

Hi All… I thought I would drop by again ๐Ÿ™‚

I dont have much to show. Hopefully that will change in the coming months.

I saw this design on Instagram . The designer hasn’t posted a link to the pattern but since I am not selling what I made I hope she doesn’t mind I made one for myself. Its c2c (corner 2 corner) .

I bought this Dragon Purse pattern a month ago. I thought it was cool although I am not much ofย  a dragon fan . It uses a stitch I dont use much but love . The Crocodile stitch.

I ran out of yarn BUT I am not frogging this one. When I go to walmart at the end of the week I will get more Mainstays basic yarn. I do want to start another one so I will use a whole skein for number 2.

I love love love this stitch.ย 

And since its spring I am growing stuff! I started this lettuce (romaine) last week and look at the cute little sprouts! I need to put them in soil soon.

Jon mentioned getting me a mini greenhouse so I can grow more veggies. I’m on the fence about that. I’m a bit nervous that everything will die or an animal gets inside and destroys everything. We’ll see. Do you grow your own veggies? Tell me all bout it ๐Ÿ™‚
