Here are a few mini Christmas stockings I crocheted for Warmth for Warriors for this year's drive.

Shawl number 2 for niece number 2 is ready  For me it looks like a watermelon 🍉

And here is the last of my shawls - that one is for my boss 😁 But she is also my friend 😀

Bailey, the pumpkin house is really adorable.  I know it's going to be a hit!

Hi everyone!

Been making christening blankets, squares, etc...

Hubby offered to let me loose in the yarn store - so far I've been trying to use stash....

Can't wait to see the blankets.  I've been trying to work the stash and buy only when I can't make it from stash.  I really need to get the stash downsized a bit.

Finished another 18" outfit.  Need to get some baby doll outfits done.  Next on the doll agenda.

I love how you make characters to go with books! I just order five little monkeys sitting in a tree for my grands.

The garden dress is really cute, too.

I've been collecting her doll patterns since she started with free patterns on her blog.  I was happy to pay for her patterns when she moved to Etsy as they are really reasonably priced and she has such a wide range of styles.  I've found them to be easy to make.

I find the monkey's more time consuming then what I'd call fiddly as it takes me longer to make them in thread than the patterns I have for yarn finger puppets.  They aren't difficult just time consuming because I work slower with thread.

Thats a really nice carrier, I bought a doll bed for my oldest grand daughter, but I am wondering if I can adapt this to fir the 15 inch floppy doll I bought Amelia who will be 18 months at Christmas.  I did crochet her a blanket to go with her baby...this might be the thing, just go up a hook size.

As written this thing is pretty large.  For 16" baby I usually do the first 10 rows in I and switch to the K suggested hook for the rest.  I'd suggest experimenting to see what you like but I pulled it out the first time I made it because just for fun I tried the 18" dolls in it for measurement and it was still big.

Hi peeps!

I tried taking pics of my last two projects...not happy with the pics...working with stash again, using different brands of white, a leftover skien of light blue, and grays...making squares for a NICU blanket.

The first doll carrier is done and the second one started.  I need 3 with this pattern that used 3 pieces of worsted weight yarn crocheted together.  I have a different pattern for the smaller dolls that I'm going to see if I can get to if there is time.

I can't imagine what size hook you used for 3 strands of yarn! That is such a cute pattern.

I'm always looking for fun, simple accessories to add to the doll donation.  I found a pattern for a lovey that went with an ami.  I decided it would be perfect for the baby dolls.

Two of these done, only one more big one to make. 

I was going to try a fancier pattern for the little dolls this year but Labor Day is sadly almost upon us so I'm thinking stick with the pattern for the little dolls I used last year which is quick and try the more challenging one next year.

Do you remember lucky clovers I started crocheting in April?

Well, I had them done in quite short time... Then few days ago I suddenly realised that the exam would be next week AND my clovers still need starching AND ironing AND attaching the pins AND adding the ladybugs....

After a few moments of panic and quite close to hysteria - well, I managed to complete them right in time.  Tomorrow I'm taking them to school so my class will get them before their first exam on Tuesday.🍀

These clovers are awesome. My granddaughters birthday is March 17th. I would love to make these. Can you share the pattern or tell me where to get it please? Where did you find the lady bugs?
