Bathroom Rug

I made a cotton rug for the bathroom. Used Peaches and Cream in white with bits of blue and green. Almost like a beachy day. Goes nicely with the cream tile. Made this one because the doggies wore out the store bought rug.

Oh Baby Baby!

April seems to be a great month to celebrate babies. Maybe it’s thoughts of spring, or perhaps it’s because so many of my nieces and nephews have April birthdays, but I thought it would be a great time to crochet up some baby items.Your challenge this week is to crochet a baby item and show us what you made.
Last Month My dad was in the hospital for about a week. I had my crochet and knitting bag with me and one of the day nurses showed me this super easy ribbed infant hat pattern.  She is in a group that makes them for the babies born in the hospital. 
I whipped up half a dozen and showed them to our group and now we are making them to donate too. : )
We also have 5 new babies in our work department and they all have new HATS!!

New Crochet Challenge

A few weeks ago I joined the weekly crochet challenge from Red Berry Crochet. She was the sponsor of the previous challenge titled "52 Week Crochet Challenge" and this year she is doing a weekly post with a new challenge each week.  So far I have met the three weeks but will post the photos of that today.
Hope you Like them. : )

3/18/2015 Egg-cellent. Crochet an Easter Egg. I have made many of these but only added one this year.



3/25/2015 Let's have a Ball. Different Yarn Weights
This is going to be a small Bolero for daughter #3, pictured below when it is complete. This is a 3.5 oz skein of I Love this Cotton in a very lovely creamy yellow. The name of the color is BANANA.  Can't type that without the bananananana song going off in my head from the minion movie. : )





4/1/2015  Be A Fool! Happy April Fools' Day. Just kidding. But my friend did tell me that this hat and purse are a great way to get into the Red Hat Society. We looked it up and found out I do qualify for age. (50)!

Share the Love

Week 49: How do you share your love of crochet?

I have been away from posting in the challenge for a while, but not from trying to meet the challenges. This month I have shared, shared, shared my love by forming and instructing a group of women with whom I work in both knitting and crochet. We met for the first time ever last Saturday and they are all (8) so excited to have learned something. One of the members have even been looking online for patterns, taught herself to read the pattern instructions and posted pics up everyday on facebook of her new dishcloths. She even taught her 11 year old daughter what she learned just last week.
they come to work now with their handwork and show it off at lunch everyday. It makes my heart sooooo happy!!

Knitting vs. Crochet

This is a little survey about knitting or crochet.  I learned how to do this recently so I am putting it here.

I wont say anything about how long since I have posted.  I have been knitting and crocheting, crafting and cooking. Cleaning and cooking, and motorcycle riding and doggies.

Busy, Busy, Busy!
