YOP5 week 51

Well I am ready for year 6. My non list of projects is ready. I have a few things I need to complete on my current list this week.

I finished 3 more amigurumis. 3 more to make . 12 was my goal. ( actually it was 24 but that was changed months ago..lol)


I made another bag. I saw this granny square mermaid tail bag a few days ago and had to make myself one! I love mermaids! ย I will be making more. I love this pattern!!! The squares made are from a square swap.

I started the Monkey C2C over with a different background color. Eggshell instead of buff. But I am running out of eggshell. I am at the decrease side so I hope I will have enough to finish the panel.


Here’s a few garden pics… come on Lilies, grow! ๐Ÿ™‚


Oh and I finished the Lily Pond Blanket!!!! More pictures are hereย .

YoP5 week 50

Week 50 !! It’s almost over!!

I worked on 3 big projects this past week. ย Lily Pond blanket ( I just needed a border) , Latticeback bolero (I had to frog the back because it was too high up–too tight) and I joined 6 panels of the Emoji blanket. I need to decide which 3 emojis I want to add. I was thinking halo, poo, and sleep ย ( or whatever it’s called.)IMG_20160612_1011361_rewind



I worked on (and will be adding to my year 6 list ) Wildlife Rescue Nests for local rescues.

I started up another hat drive over on my charity facebook page.. Comfort caps for New England. The Summer of Sports. My goal is to get 100 sport themed hats by Aug ย and send them to the NE Children’s hospitals. Check out the page if you want to help ๐Ÿ™‚

I made this teen sized soccer cap this week.


To the A Year of Projects members , I added the 3rd banner and side bars ( crocheters and knitters) for year 6 to the ravelry thread. I am saving my favorite for last ๐Ÿ™‚

Just a few weeks left to this years A year of Projects. I want to say it went by fast, but it kinda didn’t.

For my fellow Yoppers.. I will be posting the year 6 banners I made each each week that is remaining for this year( in the ravelry group). . Two are posted already as of this post. I also made the matching sidebar banners as well.I already chose the ย I will be using ๐Ÿ™‚

Projects I finished this week:

SNOOPY SCARF. all this scarf needed was Snoopy’s body. I figured he’s been without one for so long I might as well give him one ๐Ÿ™‚

BEACH BEAUTY BAG. All I see is Wonder Woman… Which is ok ๐Ÿ™‚ ย I added a lip balm holder I made to the belt loop.

I’ve been trying to eat better lately. Lose some weight and keep it off. Try new foods. I looked on Pinterest for some yummy new recipes and I came across this Cheesy Zucchini and squash bake. I tried zucchini and squash a few weeks ago for the first time at Denny’s of all places as a substitute for the french fries ย . I loved it!! So I knew I would love this cheesy bakeย . I was sick of potatoes and noodles as sides with dinner now I have another option. I just need my hubby to be to get on board with it ๐Ÿ™‚


And a great snack , Baked Pickles.

Thats all for this week.

Finishing up the few WIPs (works in progress ) I have left. I ย had a burst of energy this week and was able to work on a few things.

Finished the Embarrassed emoji.. 3 left ๐Ÿ™‚ And I fell in love with these Zoodiacs by 1dogwoof . I waited too long for the monkey! My chinese zodiac animal is the monkey. ( my finance is the Goat..lol) We were born the same year but he was born before the chinese new year. I am thinking about making something with these zoodiacs for my MIL for Christmas . I have to make a few more for her daughter, son in law and 2 kids and their dogs. oh and one for my cat..hehe

The scarf and Tardis nesting bowls are done. 2 more left.
