That is amazing.  There really aren't words coming from a woman who finds it next to impossible to get squares even close to the same size let alone the patience to crochet and sew them all together.  Beautiful work!!!

Wow that is beautiful.  You should put a tag on it so everyone knows it is your quarantine blanket and made in 2020.

Love the colors and the outlines.  I would have nightmares sewing that together.

A knight to go with the dragon puppet.  I had hoped to finish this for a bday but now that it is being moved to Christmas I'm putting it aside to finish the stuff I need for October bday and Halloween.  I have some fun puppets to come back to when I'm done with October.

Thanks! I DID have to frog a couple - then I was careful to use a square as a template, and change hook sizes as needed. I kind of got lost in the project....

I love making a picture frame look and I had a lot of fun playing with the colors. I like your idea about labeling the blanket also.  I should get some fabric and indelible marker and sew a label on it! Or maybe embroider the info on fabric. Hmmm....time to visit Hobby Lobby😍

That's nice too! How do your hands hold up? I may have asked you this before.  

I'm making a graph ghan - praying hands - and if I work on it too long my hands feel it till the next day...

 

Have  good evening ladies!

Make Way for Ducklings Jack

I will confess when I started this project I'd forgotten there were 8 ducklings.  I'd envisioned maybe 5 or 6 but in fact there are 8 and the names are alphabetical starting from J.

Wow! Look at all those beautiful squares. I'd call it "Time to Reflect" afghan.

@judianne I love your quarantine blanket! It will be a keepsake as you will always remember what you were doing when you look at it years later. I just love all the different colors and uniqueness of it.

Here are a few new hats I crocheted recently for Warmth for Warriors. I used a new method on the brim of crocheting all FPDC. The pattern and details can be found here if anyone wants to make the hat. Works up quickly and the new brim tightens up nicely for a good fit.

I wanted some Halloween decorations for me so I started with another 8" Baby Doll.

Halloween Kitty Pumpkin

My yarn arrived today to try out the mug rugs from Annie's mug rugs in their new Spooktackular leaflet.  I'm hoping to turn them into hot pads as I've a collection of holiday hot pads.  Not sure I really need mug rugs.

Another item finished for the Halloween box.  I do hope it gives the kids something fun to do with the lack of Halloween activities this year.

MINI CHRISTMAS STOCKINGS pattern?

I just came  across Christmas Stocking crochet pattern. This one is crocheted in ONE PIECE :). That is why that pattern caught my eye.

That pattern it is not for a Mini Stocking. But,  it is using double strand of yarn. That is why I think could be very easy made to a much smaller size using one strand of yarn. If that would not work out to be small enough (Mini) I think that could be easy adjusted to make that a Mini stocking.

NOT MY PICTURE!

People are really busy.  The Halloween Doll is adorable and the stockings, love the idea that they are all one. Can't forget the hats.

Working on Mr. & Mrs Claus in thread.  Going slow.

I mentioned there was a set of Red Heart Puppets well I finished the second one this week.  It sounds odd to be working on this stuff in August but I'm hoping to mail it in before the end of September so they can enjoy playing with the toys for the month of October.

Frankenstein Hot Pad

I love it!  Halloween is my favorite holiday.  Finding the right colors is so frustrating.  Glad you found (and shared) a source for the colors.
