Carnation Bouquet Afghan Project

Drew aka "The Crochet Dude" just announced this project yesterday. It is going to be great to see all the different squares that get sent in and all the wonderful afghans that get made for charity. I plan on digging through my stash and start making some to send in.

Here is a link to the pattern on Drew's blog. Crochet one today!

Look who is crawling...

Painted Pumpkin

Was going through and deleting old files from the computer and found a picture of a pumpkin I painted for our company picnic back in 2009. The theme was Halloween. I free handed a clone trooper from a coloring page image on my pumpkin. Not too back for only my second time painting on a pumpkin.

Ugly Hat Done

It turned out much cuter than I had planned. There was even enough yarn left over to make a kid's ugly hat to go with it. So two hats headed to Mary at Online Angels in my next box.

Ugly Hat Project

It was so ugly looking outside today that it inspired me to try and crochet an ugly hat. Went digging in my yarn stash and picked two colors that I thought would never look good together. The two colors I picked were TLC Essentials: Island and Simply Soft: Embroidery Print. The TLC yarn is in soft pastels and the SS yarn is bright rainbow colors. Which equals ugly right??

Well much to my surprise as I kept crocheting more and the hat kept getting bigger, and bigger I am thinking to myself this is not too bad. Now how can these two colors together be not bad??? It turns out that the lighter varigated yarn compliments the brighter rainbow colors. I found my pom pom makers the other weekend so I am going to make on to go on top to finish off the so called ugly look of this hat. The completed item will be donated to Mary at Online Angels. Here is what the hat looks like so far. I believe I have 6 rounds done so far using a J hook.

Hi Grammie Thursday!

Look at how much my top teeth have come in since last weekend! Chomp! Chomp!

Sippy Cup Time!!!

Frogging is done

Well after three people told me how bad my shawl was it is now a bunch of little balls again. Figured that if the general public did not like it, then the judges at the state fair would want to burn the darn thing or something. I decided to make a wrap this time instead of a shawl since the yarn is looking a bit abused from the frogging process. Will post a picture of the one ball I have worked into the new project tonight.

Bought some planters today on my lunch hour for the deck. I am going to plant all of those bulbs that have been sitting in the bottom drawer of the frig. Lets hope they are still good. If not, will get some seeds or something else to put in them. The store had some snapdragon plants as well. Going to plant them in some pots I bought last year on either side of my front door.
