New Layout

I have a new layout on my blog - I love it! Hope you do too! But to see all the pictures within a post you will need to click on the Title line of the post for it to show you the entire post! Thanks. Hope you like it as much as I do!

Scarf, Tiny Blanket, Cupcake Bear, and a Gift!

I do love coming up with titles for these posts! Never know what or how to say it so hope it makes you smile!

Today I am sharing a scarf I made - the yarn is Boucle - I never worked with it before - it is lovely, soft, and so warm. I held two strands one blue and one brown together - I think it came out very pretty. Just a double crochet nothing fancy wanted the yarn to show.

Second is a little tiny blanket I made - could be a preemie or a doll blanket. It's soft pink with little filet hearts.

Third is the Diamond Point Blanket. I love making this pattern it really showcases pretty colors of yarn. Sorry to say the color doesn't show well in this picture. It is lavender - Red Heart's lavender.


Close up of the stitches

Fourth is my Cupcake Bear - I finally got a picture a of him. I got his pattern from All About Ami

And finally is a picture of the gifts I received from my Friends Group on Yahoo. Starlett sent me these lovely dishcloths and the most wonderful and beautiful scarf.

I'll be back soon with more!

Tom Turkey and Loaf Pan Tote

Just two items today that I finished. The first is a little amigurami - he is called Tom the Turkey. It was so much fun to make this little guy - and very easy too!

You can find the pattern at Gobble Gobble

I got two pictures of him - front view and back view so you can see the colors of his tail!

Front View - Tom the Turkey

Back View - Tom the Turkey

Next is a little loaf pan tote I made for an exchange. I am going to add the glass pyrex dish to it (a new one - giggle this is mine) and a box mix for a loaf cake. I think she will like it - well at least I hope she will!

You can find the pattern Load Pan Tote

I did two views one so you can see how it looks when you hold and carry the tote. The second view shows the tote open.

Thanks for looking.

Halloween Items and Cup Caddy

Here are some more items I've worked up lately.

The first is a little Halloween basket, with a ghost and bat! All the items were free on line - I just looked for Halloween crochet patterns. Sorry the picture is so dark.

Next is a Cup Caddy. You can use it for hooks, pens, pencils, tools, etc. I am really happy with the way they came out and I have a bunch more to make!!

The pattern can be found at Ravelry here - Cup Caddy

First is a picture of the two with items with nothing in them.

Next is a picture of just the yellow one with some items in it so you can see how they can be used.

And next is a picture of just the blue one. This one gave me a little bit of trouble, the yarn was nubby so I had a hard time finding some of the stitches to work into! But it all worked out in the end. Again with items so you can see it's versatility.

Be back soon with more, of course.

Shawl, Nerdle the Turtle and C.D.Corn

Now isn't that an odd Title for this post! Giggling all the way!!!

Here I am again with more completed projects. First is a shawl I made for one of the local nursing home residents. I began to follow a pattern and then didn't like it so changed it along the way and of course I didn't write anything down, but it is just a simple double crochet and chains with my imagination kicked in here and there!

Two pictures - one shown fully spread out and one wrapped around the person.

Next is a little dishcloth I made. The pattern was a free bonus with an order from a online store. I need to remember which one!

Next is my version of Nerdle the Turtle dishcloth and coasters! This pattern was found on Ravelry - it is a purchase pattern but very reasonable! I think they came out adorable - but I'm partial to turtles!

Dishcloth first:

Four coasters next:

And last for this post is C.D.Corn - I found this pattern on line! As I was making him, I couldn't stop laughing! He is just so funny looking to me! And he looked so mad till I sewed on the smile! Hope you makes you laugh as much as he made me laugh!

Thanks for looking and I'll be back soon with more.
