  1. I'll be first: 2 more blankets for the NICU. Blues are the predominant color in the big granny square and the little squares are made up of odds and ends of homespun. Both are baby size...and what was I thinking, you ask, working with homespun to make small squares? Short answer: I can't help myself πŸ˜‚

  2. Well here its 25Β°, ground is white and its snowing again. The first two dogs of the day wanted nothing to do with going outside. Their MO is not to go out for their owners in bad weather but dh is more firm with them. They know they have to at least pee for him before going back in. Dh also cleaned snow off of his friends (lady) cars. Says its a perk of his dog walking service. Loaded the crockpot up with vegetables and tenderloin. Should be ready for supper. Guess I should make some cornbread to go with it. Working on doll blankets and started a doll dress.

  4. The German ANNA Magazine published one of my table centers in their February 2022 issue. I was surprised and I am very happy about this display. They even call it "our masterpiece". The instruction diagram is in a separate part of the Magazine.

  9. I knocked these out this last week. My first attempt at these styles and I'm pretty happy with them. I know what I want to adjust for the next go around. My wife has eyes on the flat cap, so it will be hers once I finish the stitching and remove the bobby pins.

  10. My mom is currently working at the humane society here in Phoenix where they rescue & do emergency treatment at the location that she works from.. So I'm currently working on pet blankets to lay in the cages so they're not laying on the metal cages..... Donated approximately 20 so far.... Measurement request was 17x10 for the kitten cages...24x36 for the dog cages... Here's a couple that I had snapped a picture of they are for the kitten cages....

  11. Today is our last day of sun, going into a rainy, possibly snowy weekend. I've gone twice this week, and going again this evening, to a wellness center that has a gym. My cousin and I are going together. It's 20 miles away, so probably not something I would continue doing on my on, but hopefully we can keep each other motivated. Hope everyone has a good day and weekend!

  12. Judy, that's a really pretty blanket. I'm going to have to go back thru Attic 24's patterns; they're always nice designs. Cindy, that's a great collection of hats. I love tyvek envelopes.

  14. Stacie Shirt and Pants This was another waste not want not project. I was working on adapting a Cindy doll pattern to fit Chelsea and my first attempt failed for Chelsea but fit as a shirt for Stacie. As long as it fits one doll time not wasted.

  15. Barbie Peach Gown Getting those small outfits made for the donation early on in the year. I find it interesting how varied in size/shape/dimensions the Barbie dolls are from model to model. This one is quite different from the one I used last year that they stopped making. I stocked up so I can use this model for at least a couple donations before having to resize again.

  16. Lil Cutesies Picnic This was actually a failed Christmas Gift that becomes my first donation item of 2022. I needed 2 for it to be part of the Christmas package and I only had time for one so it is off to the donations. This has become a tradition to include with the donations so its one item of my to do list and the girls still got plenty of doll outfits.

  22. I am still working on a 2021 project. I took a break from it for the holidays! I love the colors so I am gonna keep it πŸ™‚πŸ‘ Colors: red heart spring green and mainstays green and gray Pattern: Youtube Video called "How to Crochet the Ripple Stitch + FREE Crochet Blanket Pattern [MOCHA RIPPLE AFGHAN]" which was posted by TL Yarn Crafts I switched up the number of rows I did for each color. I chose to alternate between 2 and 3 rows instead of doing the same every time. I feel like it gave it a quirky look. I plan to make it large enough to be used on a twin mattress, so I still have

  23. Thank you for the warm welcome! Mary Jo, I will be sure to check out the Show N Tell. Diana, right now, I am working on a ripple blanket which will be sized for a twin mattress. I'm using red heart spring green, and mainstays green and the same brand in gray. Something simple to throw on the couch, or the spare bed! And hello Terri, we hail from Leesburg, FL πŸ™‚ I'm alternating the colors, but also the number of rows for each color. I do 3 of one color, and the next time I use that color I do 2 rows, and the next back to 3. I just didn't like the look when all the colors were the same

  24. Here is my first kennel mat for the year. Gifted white homespun with two different pinks and a purple. I would have liked to make it a few rows longer but ran out of white and didn’t want to spoil the pastel vibe.

We have one more to go on Sunday, our kids need to move closer to us...! Light dinner tonight, we may or may not make it til midnight.. Tomorrow we feast on pork loin, sauerkraut, collards, and black eyed peas..... covering all the good luck food bases for the New Year, as for my Scottish roots of having a handsome dark haired man be the first to walk through the door on New Years... chris still has a couple of

  30. When you have questions about a pattern it can be extremely helpful to study the photo if there is one. You can often see what you need to do. After looking at the photo this is what is going on. sc in same spot as ch 1, hdc in next stitch, dc in next stitch, tc in next stitch, dc in next stitch, hdc in next stitch. This should bring you to the middle stitch of the next petal where you would sc, then hdc in next stitch, dc in next stitch, tc in next stitch, dc in next stitch, hdc in next stitch. You are filling in the area between each petal.

  31. Great idea for the horse blankets. They look very nice. I too am a horse nut since I was a little girl and had a toy collection of a dozen of different breeds, plus, I always had 2 real horses. I used to sew the toys blankets and saddle blankets. I was fortunate to be able to grow up with horses and to this day, they are my favorite animal. I sure do miss riding.

  33. I spent Thurs at my sis's house. Her furnace quit but she found a guy to come out and officially declare it dead. It was there when we bought the house 35 years ago. He was going to go pick up a new one that day so as to be sure to have one and is coming back Mon or Tues to install it. Its good that it has been unseasonably warm. Fri it was a record breaking 72Β°. Between her not totally recovered from last years issues and all the hand sanitizer she is getting infections around her fingernails and they are really sore. Finally got thru to her dr who referred her to the infectious disea

  36. Dress Up Your Table with this beautiful Round Textured Flower Tablemat. This will definitely enhance the look of your table setting. You can personalize this table mat by using contrasting colors or by changing the colors according to the season. These would also make perfect gifts for your loved one. Texture always stands out in any crochet project. I have used Popcorn, Double Crochet Cluster and Front Post Stitches to give the textured look. You can also make them into rugs. Use a thicker yarn and a larger hook size to turn them into rugs. Materials Used:- 4 Ply Yarn

  38. The Pooh Afghan is now finished, except for an edge if it needs one. This was fun, but it was a lot of color changes. As I was working on it, I realized that the flower did not have to be yellow, you could use red/pink/bright pink, or even purple in 3 shades. So what do you think, does it need and edge and if so what color? Do I make it 2 rows of sc or dc to make it look like a picture in a picture fame. Do I just do it in white? Or just leave it alone. This will be going out to my daughter with the Pooh, Tigger, Piglet and Eeyore stuffies I made. It won’t go out till after

  39. My mother could whip out a knitted project in nothing flat, even faster than I could crochet in my younger days. She learned as a child and kept it up forever. I still drag out the needles every 6 months or so and give it a try. I have the Continental cast on and knit stitch going ok, but, that's as far as I get. And geesh, am I ever slow. LOL I used to go to a local "Cancer" Arts/Craft Fair here every year that brought many people from out of town. A lady from Germany had a booth and I was fascinated with all of her knit items, Christmas ornaments, doilies, runners, throws, all knit. I

  44. Lots of rain off and on since yesterday afternoon. Well actually, drizzlies. Makes me grateful knowing all this will go into our lakes and when Spring comes around with snow melting from the high country. We even had fog today! That's very unusual for the high desert. I hope everyone stays safe and healthy through the holiday and the rest of 2022 for that matter. Happy New Year!

  46. No rain here today but, it sure is overcast. The house seems so dark inside when the sun is not able to show its glorious shine. It does seem appropriate since it's the first day of Winter. Today I'll pick up the last 2 gifts on my list, make a batch of cookies and some chocolate fudge. Sounds like a busy day, especially for me. LOL Hoping you all have a happy day!
