Testing of Baby Spiral Blanket and Smaller Stuff

The first item I have been working on was a test of a pattern for Donna. Donna's blog is at

The test was a Baby Spiral Blanket - she allowed the testers to make it as large or small as they wanted. I liked it so much while creating it I made it 55" across and made it into a lapghan for myself! I used Red Heart Super Saver Yarn in Country Blue and Light Raspberry - used just under two skeins each. The Country Blue was leftover from my heart neice's afghan and the Light Raspberry from my other heart neice's daugthers afghan! Harry said it looked a little like Tootie Frutie ice cream with those colors!


Been busy working on some smaller items too. This a Pizzaz Purse by Maggie - the pattern can be found at

I did it black and white stripes - for a very nice lady.


Still have a lot in the "to do" pile but that is an always pile too! Thanks for looking!

Teddy Bear - First Attempt!

I finally tried a teddy bear. This pattern comes from - it was a pattern I purchased. He was made with Lion Brand Fun Fur in Copper. He has velvet button blue eyes and a black velvet nose. He just got delivered to my friend's grand-daughter.

A full view:


A slightly closer view:


He isn't like the creators - but I think with a lot more practice I will get better. But everyone, so far, who has seen him thinks he is a cutie!
