Okay, so I've been remis in posting to the blog. But here's some eye-candy of what I've been up to.
This is a shawl that I made for my friend Lila .. she is a sweet sweet person and I wanted to bless her with this. I pray that she loves it!
The above shawl, and the baby afghan below are both made with the lemonade stitch (crochet). I love the texture in this stitch. It's a great one for using up all the redheart yarn I have!
Below is a bag I made from some Cotton yarn which I would normally make dishcloths with. I used two skeins of "key lime" color, and then lined the bag in a pink cotton fabric. I haven't actually used this yet, but I love how pretty it is! I made up the pattern as I went.
allpeoplequilt.com. It's called "grab bag".
This following doily is actually a washcloth pattern. I used a hemp/cotton/modal yarn and a smaller hook, and it's quite attractive I think. The pattern is from maggie's free crochet. There are a lot of great patterns on that website.
And below is inspired by a very special blogger. :) I finally made my first Capri-Sun pouch bag! :) What do you think? The handles are some old hem binding that I had laying around. Recycling and Using UP ! :)
The thing that's been keeping me busy is that my dh got a job in Mequon, WI (just north of Milwaukee) and so we are goign to be moving from Iowa to Wisconsin (probably Belgium area) in the next few months. I am hoping sooner rather than later as he is there working already and I'm here with the boys so that ds2 can finish school and I can get the house and yard cleaned up for sale. We could use prayers if you care to offer them for us, as this is very stressful on all sides and ... well .. just s... yes.. anyway .. .
Hopefully I'll be able to post more.
