Just about finished with my counter top mat for catching dribbles from the coffee pot. 

This should keep me busy for awhile. 😄

How did you make the red and black Buffalo check afghan?  Was it double strands or what colors were called for? Love everything you are making. I am making  c2c squares that have safari anim

I like all of your WIP's! I'd like to make one of the mats but, my GD is staying with me temporarily and she is not the neatest person. She'd probably have the mat soiled in no time! LOL

I'm still plugging along on the afghan for my other GD's birthday (tomorrow). She's aware that it's going to be late and doesn't mind. She picked out the color Real Teal and I picked out the pattern. It may be finished in a week to 10 days, then I'll ship it off to her.

Nearly finished with another mat. The 🐝 is not as nice as I would have liked. 

I bet it looks better than you think. We are our own worst critics. Keep up the great work and photos. I love seeing what you make.

I'm searching for a cute little 1 inch bee pattern to sew onto a grocery bag holder I want to make for my DD. So far no luck.

I redid the bee wing embroidery, plus. I think I have a bumble bee in a book or pattern. If I come across a bee I’ll let u know. Maybe fridge pattern and then use lighter yarn to downsize it.

Well, looked at all the cute Appliques and then saw this cute bear-rag doll pattern and purchased it. Husband’s cousins daughter just had a baby girl. Now making a c2c blanket and will add a ( or more) appliques that I also bought from same Etsy store. Little Bamboo Handmade. And make her the 🐻.   It’ll be a great pattern for charity gifting, too.

Thank you for the info.  That is what I thought, next time I will go it with that in mind.  I hope to get pictures of the ones I made for the babies soon.

It’s a long term project. No rush. 

Wow! So pretty. I'm in love with plaids.

You’re welcome. I enjoyed looking at the images, hopefully you’ll see the bee for your project. 🙂

I can't seem to find a bee motif that says "make me", so I'll probably go with this Bumble Bee (ami) in a heavier thread instead of cotton yarn.

They are really cute.  I am working on c2c squares of animals for an afghan.  This is one square.  These can also be done with sc, but will be smaller.

I finished my other 2.  Black and red and green and cream   2 baby blankets - Baby & Toddler Items - Crochetville
