It's me again back with some more completed projects. First is tea cozy I made for a friend - it is similiar in colors to the other one I made a while back - but thought I'd share it anyways! I got the pattern on line by searching for Tea Cozy.
Second is a bunch of daisies I made also for a friend. They are a bit top heavy and I think I will change them if I do them again to make sure that doesn't happen. The person is pleased and is going to work out something to make them stand taller. If you bend the stems in half they stand a bit better. This is a pattern from Lily - the cotton yarn manufacturer.
Third are two flower squares. The pink and purple centered on is from a book but the other one is from Luba Davis - you can find her patterns on etsy! They are very well written and she has some lovely squares and other items for sale as patterns.
Last is a tote bag for me! It is from Crochet! Magazine - from a set called A Day at the Beach - I really like how long and roomy it is - it fits great with me in my wheelchair. And it's pink so of course I love it!

Sandwich Dishcloth, Roses and a Square

I had so much fun making this first item - well items - I made two slices of bread dishcloths and then an egg shaped dishcloth for a swap - I am still laughing over it - hope you laugh too! I found both patterns on the web by searching for Bread Dishcloth and Egg Dishcloth (the egg was actually an amigurami with the yolk part stuffed but I adapted it).

This first picture is of just the bread slice.

This next picture is of the egg on the bread.

And, finally, here is the Egg Sandwich!!

Are you laughing yet?

Next is a bunch of dark red roses I made for a friend. The pattern is called Long Stemmed Roses and I found it through a google search.

And finally is a square I made for a swap. I took an afghan pattern and just made the one square, but did it Tunisian Crochet. This was my first try at changing colors - I had a few issues - but the receiver says its lovely - so I'll take her word for it! The pattern was called Bunny Square I think - I didn't save it - but I found it through a google search.
