Hi all hope everyone had a great week. I have the day off today and it has been so nice this morning. I have been sitting here crocheting a granny square and listening to it rain! I was so thankful I did not need to go out in it. The rain should be ending later today. I wanted to share a small lapghan I finished recently

I used the Summer Garden Granny Square from Attic24.
and I have been working on it since last year. I made 48 squares, I joined strips of 6 squares using this invisible join

Than I crocheted a granny row on each side of the strip than I joined each row of strips using the join as you go method
I added 2 rows of regular granny around the outside.

I am not totally happy with it, It is crooked and the border is waffily but I guess it still looks pretty. Time to head out for grandparents day at Molly’s school, ya’ll have a great day!

Good morning all, I had a very busy week so not much time for blog or crochet. I did get a little crochet in I have 2 main projects that I am working on a granny square pillow the pattern is from Sarah London’s book Granny Square Love. (I have the Kindle version) Also a tablerunner of my own design it was inspired by this afghan http://appleblossomdreams.blogspot.com/2012/10/rockman-afghan-cal-week-1.html
I am also working on the WoolEater Motif CAL,http://sarahlondon.wordpress.com/2013/04/17/wool-eater-motif-cal-2013/ I just managed to get 3 motifs completed, I’ll post pictures on Wednesday.
I did complete 1 project, the owl hotpad I made for my daughter and it has been delivered.

I used this pattern http://www.etsy.com/listing/90970702/crochet-pattern-owl-obsession-a-colorful?ref=sr_gallery_6&ga_search_query=owl+obsession&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_ship_to=US&ga_ref=auto1&ga_search_type=all&ga_facet=owl+obsession that I purchased on Etsy. I made 1 owl block and 1 circle block and joined them together using this method http://whiskersandwool.blogspot.com/2010/07/two-color-border-tutorial.html

I was pleased with how it turned out. The owls on the wall are what inspired me to make it! Ya’ll have a great weekend.

Hello all it is a beautiful warm (69 F ) day here in SW Michigan! It is the first day it has been warm enough for me to be outside and I have a neighbor ruining it! Someone that lives behind us is having target practice with a loud and annoying gun! ( we live in the country so it is legal ) Weezer will not set a paw off the back steps when shooting is going on, he’s hiding behind the couch right now! I was going to sit outside and crochet but the gunshots interfered with my concentration. I’ve mostly been piddling around with it today anyway. This is what I’ve accomplished:

The little round flower is called granny in the middle and is from Diva Stitches
The little square block is called a squircle and is from Dly’s Hooks and Yarn
The little brown owl is part of the Owl Obsession blanket pattern and is available for purchase on
Etsy
The owl is what I am planning to use fo Crystal’s hotpads, but I am not real happy with the way it is working up. I bought fresh flowers this morning:

I finally finished the Hex Totebag It was a fun project! I changed directions with colors and decided that I liked the blue, yellow, purple combo so much that thats what I would use for the whole bag. I think it turned out pretty, what do you think?

Here’s the inside, I know the lining looks wrinkly but it really isn’t, it is not easy to take a pic of the inside of a bag by yourself

Ya’ll have a great weekend!

I’ve been making granny squares this week! I started following this CAL last week, I’m going to play catch up and do a couple squares each week until I’m caught up. I got the simple granny done and started on the second square a mitered granny. Here’s the simple granny:

Yesterday a link for this Owl Granny Square came through one of my Yahoo groups
At My House it came at a good time for me My daughter is redoing her kitchen and has some owls in it and I had been looking for something to make hot pads for her and this will work here’s my first one:

20130410-165556.jpg for some reason the owl looks a bit crooked I’m going to do another one tonite.
Lately I have been doing alot of crochet that seems to have alot of pieces to it and this mess on my table has been driving me nuts! The other day as I was picking up the mess again I decided I needed something to keep the mess contained and I thought of this:

I had made this tray many years ago and it was just sitting on a shelf collecting dust. I made it to use for bead weaving ( I used to make jewelry) the tray works perfectly for crochet! Everything stays put on the tray and can easily be put away. I don’t know why I didn’t think of it sooner.

Hi all, it’s finally Friday! I had 4 new babies at work this week so it made for a long one! (I am an infant lead teacher in a day care center) I do have a couple of finished items to share. A pretty granny square tissue box cover

I used scraps of Red Heart super Saver to make it, not sure I like the red in it!
I also made some Birdie decortions from Attic24
I only got a picture of one but I made 3 and took 2 of them to my MIL on Easter. I have this one hanging from a ceiling fan. I plan to make several more when I have more time.
