I finished this blanket this weekend. It was a WIP from a long time ago. Used various worsted weight acrylic yarn and H hook so it came out softer than expected. Will donate to Stitches from the Heart.

Recent projects showing static vs movement. I think they will look better as color copies.


Sarah's hearts

Sarah and I made these for her class valentines. We got the idea from Family Fun magazine. You just melt little crayon bits in a heart shaped muffin pan in the oven at 250 for ten minutes. After they set up, you remove them and voila, a little colorful surprise. Crayola crayons worked the best.



Believe it or not, I have been doing some crochet. This blanket was made with lots of scraps. I put all the scraps in a black bag and when I added a new round, I would just pull a new color out of the bag. Whatever color it was, I had to use it. The pattern is Kaleidoscope Afghan from "Blue Ribbon Afghans from America's State Fairs: 40 Prize Winning Designs." I will probably not be entering into any fairs but I feel like I do deserve a ribbon just for weaving in all these ends. My daughter, Sarah is the proud owner of this afghan.
