Life is like Coffee Movie

Life is like Coffee Movie: Do you know people that just seem to be happier in general? Do you say to yourself, "I want to be more like them"? Often, the happiest people in the world don't have the best of everything...they just make the best of everything!

Thanks to my friend Beth for sending this to me.

Monday's Link to Free Crochet Pattern (17 June 2013)

I'm off season here, but today's link is for bells. They make great decorations for Christmas and you can use up the odds and ends of yarn you have leftover from other projects you make this summer. These bells would look great on your Christmas tree or as an embellishment for gifts or maybe for wedding decorations.

Have a great week!

Just Piddling Along with Crocheting...

I'm just piddling along with the projects I'm working on. Lately I haven't finished much--I've been working a little here and there with a baby blanket. Tonight I finished a dishcloth. I worked a row every now and then when I didn't feel like working on the baby blanket. The pattern (#5) is from The Big Book of Dishcloths from Leisure Arts. The yarn I used is reminiscent of the 1970s and it has a warm, cozy look to it. I've used this yarn before, it's cotton on a cone and the label has been gone for sometime now so I don't know the name of it. I've been chatting away for a bit much now so I'll "be quiet" and show you the picture.

Wishing everyone a wonderful week!

Changing Times...

I saw this on facebook and I thought that it was so relevant that I wanted to share it with you. When I see things like this I sometimes wonder if it is possible that I am becoming a member of my parents generation; you know the phrase, "I remember when I was a kid we (fill in the blank)" that we heard growing up. Anyway, enjoy the video.

Current Project--

I'm working on another baby blanket. Seems that there are lot of babies going to be born lately. I have 2 more to go after this one. So far this is what I have finished--

There are some granny squares that get worked with this too. This will be for a little boy. His grandmother has been a friend since high school so of course I have to make a blanket for this this guy's grand entrance.

Pattern is from an Annie's Attic publication called Best-in-Show Baby Blankets, edited by Brenda Brinneman, published by DRG in 2005.

Stay tuned for more...

Have a great day everyone,

Monday's Link to Free Crochet Pattern (10 June 2013)

Today's free pattern is for bunny slippers for a 0-3 month old. They're really cute and not only would they're nice anytime but would be especially nice at Easter-time (I'm a bit late for that this year though  ).

Hope everyone has a wonderful week!

Crocheted Spiderman-Like Baby Blanket

This week I finished a baby blanket reminiscent of Spiderman's web. This is going to the soon to be born grandson of my neighbors. Their daughter and son in law are decorating the baby's room with a super hero theme. The basic round ripple pattern is by Aggie May of Crochetville. I finished it up by using bits and pieces from other similar "web like" patterns others had done. Hope the new parents like it.  Oh, if anyone is interested in the basic round ripple pattern I used, Aggie May has generously shared her pattern to Crochetville members who have pm'd her at Crochetville.

Take care everyone.
