I Watched ER that I taped and worked on a crocheted handbag I'm going to use as a new makeup bag in my bathroom. Last year I made a bunch out of this pattern out of Red Nylon and Black and put in a decorative jar of my homemade Strawberry Jam.
I took a few photo's but I need to invest in a new camera as the pictures are not too clear. Go to my photo's page to view or just [ Click Here ] to go directly to the page.
Sad day today my Mother left for back home to Nashville. I and the kids and hubby sure will miss her but look forward already for the next time we can spend together:) Love you Mom.
Went shopping today and picked up a few more Christmas gifts I really need to get busy with my crochet projects I have plans to give all my aunts something this year hand made. I recorded ER maybe I'll sit down and watch it and work on a project:)
Hi:) the snowflakes turned out beautiful almost want to keep them for my own tree... maybe next year I'm always giving everything away:) Mom's last day here she will be leaving Thursday back for home. We had early Xmas dinner over at my Grandma & pa's tonight. Not any time to sit and crochet today nor will I tommorrow either I sopose.
Thats OK nothing going on this weekend for once so sure I'll be able to finish some of these projects I need to do before Christmas:) Nite for now.
Hi:) Snow snow snow had our 1st snow the past 24 hours and a storm at that.. about 10 inches I'd say with about 1 1/2 inches of rain before this past weekend. You'd think staying indoors I'd have more time to crochet but havn't had much time with the kids and Josh home from school being cancelled.
I did startch several of the snowflakes I've made up the past week tonight. They look so pretty all over my table laying out. Now to decide who gets what and how many. I did about 12 tonight before I ran out of pins to block them with. I started in on a Pillow I bought from Annie's attic awhile ago . A leaflet of 11 pillows to crochet. I sure love them.
I know I should be working on my Christmas gifts but think since this is new I'll make a pillow for the new curtains for my sons room. My Mom visiting sewed some really neat curtains for Josh's room. A pillow would accent the prints nicely I think. Plus I don't have any yarn projects going on at the moment. Of course I have several of those I should do but this is a nice change.
HI:) Weekends are crazy with kids and hubby all home not much time to myself to sit and crochet but instead busy having fun with them. Got the tree and lights up now looks all great! Worked on more snowflakes #92 out of the 101 snowflake book plan on making six of these as well or more. Sopose I better hit the towel toppers good this week as well If I want to get all my Christmas gifts done in time for Christmas.
OK:) I finished up my Angel Dishcloth the other day and have to get busy and make another as both my mom and grandma would like one. They say there too pretty to use. The one I've made seems like would be a nice dishcloth!
Here's a link with a picture to that website where I got the pattern, Guess I'm going to start in and make another Bye for now.
This site also has some other patterns click click [ Angel Dishcloth ] to go to the page~ Amy
Oh Yeah & The snowflakes I made today was #90 out of the 101 Snowflakes book. I'm thinking of making like 12 each of one pattern. Love that once you get pattern down takes only 8-10 minutes to make one! Just starching and pinning them out will take time.. I'm just bagging them up together and marked the bag with which one I'm making so I can look back at picture when I start to block them. Don't know what I'm going to do with them all. When to Country Cornor store that sells some crafts with Antiques today and they were selling tiny snowflakes smaller than these for $2.75 a piece and $3.50 for the ones this size.. Crazy I thought for 10-15 minutes of work:) Anyways I figure I'll make sets and maybe can pass them out for Christmas !
Just love snowflakes maybe next year I'll make goal throughout year to make enough to decorate up my own Christmas tree! I always think a little snowflake on the top of a gift was neat idea also little extra to the gift that way!
Hi:) Good day made a few snowflakes this morning and going to start on a few more here before bed after checking my messages. Then maybe starting saturday or sunday I'm going to crochet another little fuzzy country bunny for my grandma. She came over yesterday and was in love! So glad to make her one! My Mom's still visiting us from Nashville so plan on spending as much time as can with her next few days before she leaves! Bye for now
Morning. Whipped up 5 snowflakes this morning while kids watched Sesame Street. I decided to do 12 snowflakes of one pattern then move on to another. This way I get the pattern down right away and easy to do then.
I have the 101 Snowflakes I bought it about 5 years ago I think at Walmart I just love it but have seen new ones I would love to get as well. I wonder how many of the 101 I have made. Guess I Should have kept track would be kinda fun to see now.
