Catching up & 3 new afghans later

 

I know its been quite awhile since I’ve posted anything, you know how it goes…life just gets away from you sometimes.

Through the summer and early fall, I made afghans for my 2 of my best friends that I’ve been friends with for more than 20 years (Oooo just saying that makes me cringe…lol) I love these ladies dearly they were a huge part of my life going through elementary, middle & high school together…so many good times with them.

This one is Cindy’s

And then the 3rd one that I finished, I did for my uncle’s girlfriend. They’ve been together for couple years now and we’ve grown to become very good friends, I enjoy spending time with her and I think she’s been a good addition to our family.

This one is Mary Helen’s

I’ve also tried my hand at making a few purses, I found this pattern on Ravelry and I loved it and its so versatile with colors. Here’s the ones that I have done so far…

Catching up…latest crocheting work

 

BartlettFamilyPrize

This is the Daisy Four-Patch pattern.

I made this for my family reunion that was on July 2nd. We gave it away as a door prize. My uncle’s girlfriend, Mary Helen had the idea to put marbles in a jar and the family members had to guess how many were in there and the person that got to closest got to take the afghan home. It was such a good idea and a big hit…everyone enjoyed it and anticipated the winner.

And the winner is my beloved Aunt Sharon. She only missed the count by 2. She was thrilled!!

Another project that I have recently finished is a cuddle sack for a baby…its my first one and I love it!! I loved doing it, although I’m in fear that it may be to narrow for a baby, guess I’ll have to wait and see…and if it is I’ll know to adjust the pattern some for the next one I’ll make, here’s a picture of it…

110 Squares for Crochet A Rainbow

 

Well I’m happy to say that I’ve finished using up a lot of my scrap yarn to make granny squares…in which helped me a lot to clear out some shelf space. You don’t realize how quickly left over yarn can build up…one day you just happen to look at your stash and think “where did all this come from and what am I going to do with it?” LOL

The squares are going to be shipped to Australia very soon. They are for the project that Sarah London created for the victims of the severe flooding in Australia recently…she’s asked for the squares and when she gets them, she’s going to sew them together to make blankets for these people.

So between a friend of mine and me we were able to make 110 squares…

Crochet A Rainbow

Today I'm starting the project 'Crochet A Rainbow' and I'm excited to get started. I don't have a lot of money to be able to donate and I always wanna help when disasters hit. It breaks my heart to see people suffering and losing their homes and everything they own. So when I was informed about this project...well its one thing I know I can do...Crochet!! I have plenty of leftover yarn from previous projects and I'm gonna make as many granny squares I can out of all of that to contribute in the best way that I can.
If you're a crocheter and would like to get more info on how you can help click on the above picture or the 'Crochet A Rainbow' button to the right of my blog.
Thank you to Sarah London for coming up with this idea and sharing it with us and for the job you're going to have sewing all of these squares together as they begin to roll in...LOL

Bearghan

Bearghan

I’m thrilled that I made my first bearghan and I loved the way it turned out. I saw this pattern here and I wanted to do one. I remembered that I had a request from someone who wanted me to make an afghan for her little girl, so I suggested this one. She chose the colors of pink & brown, and this is what I came up with. I wanted it to resemble a “teddy bear”.

Merry Christmas



Candlelit Heart
A Christmas Poem by Mary E. Linton

Somewhere across the winter world tonight
You will be hearing chimes that fill the air;
Christmas extends its all-enfolding light
Across the distance...something we can share.

You will be singing, just the same as I,
These familiar songs we know so well,
And you will see these same stars in your sky
And wish upon that brightest one that fell.

I shall remember you and trim my tree,
One shining star upon the topmost bough;
I will hang wreaths of faith that all may see --
Tonight I glimpse beyond the hear and now.

And all the time that we must be apart
I keep a candle in my heart.

Amber's Mile-A-Minute Afghan

This is my latest afghan that I've finished. I made this for my cousin, Amber. We were close when we were younger and then "life" happened and we lost touch over the years. After about 18 years, I found her through Facebook and we reunited this past summer. Its been great having her back in my life and seeing the wonderful & very kind woman & mother she has turned out to be.
