~ painted crochet hook ~

Good morning ladies.  I haven't been doing much crocheting the last week.  The only thing I have to show today is a painted crochet hook.

It is a size U 25mm wood crochet hook that I bought at AC Moore for $8.99.  I dipped it in aqua acrylic paint, hung it up on a cup hook to dry, then dipped it in blue acrylic paint and hung it up to dry again.  I then added the dots with a chopstick.  I haven't used it yet, but I'll be ready if I ever get the idea to crochet a rug or a really thick blanket.  

Have a great week everyone.  :)

~ cross stitch and baby doll crochet ~

Good morning.  Today I have something a little different to show you.  

I've started a cross stitch project that will most likely take a little while to finish - the tiny stitches are playing with my eyes too much.  Lots of breaks will have to be taken with this project.

I'm working it with 14-count white plastic canvas and embroidery thread.

I found the graph somewhere on the internet - I can't remember exactly where now.  I know that I did a search on Pinterest for cross stitch patterns and this was in the mix.


Next up is some baby doll items that I crocheted for Sami.  The first one is a round ripple blanket crocheted with one cake of Caron Baby Cakes in the colorway 'cotton candy'.  Sami likes this blanket - she said to me "thank you for making my baby a star blanket Yaya".  She's so sweet.

The next one is a cocoon - Sami didn't like this one so much.  That's ok - can't win them all.  

Well that's it for this week - I'll see you next Sunday.  :)

~ Another gloomy, rainy day ~

Hello, hello, hello.

It's another gloomy, rainy day and to tell you the truth, I'm getting sick of it.  I don't mind rain when we need it, but jeez - enough is enough.
We've had so much rain lately that yesterday when I stepped out onto the porch to feed the birds I smelled mold.  Everything has been wet for so long.  Yuk.

Well, anyways - here are 2 projects that have relatively brightened my days.

The first one is another kitty cat bed.  This one will be my last one for a little while though.  I have developed a pain in my left thumb that goes down to my wrist that I can only reason has something to do with heavy duty crocheting.

 My next project is a baby carseat blanket.  I crocheted it with 1 strand Lion Brand Mandala in the colorway 'genie' and 1 strand Studio Classic by Nicole in 'gentle white'.

I used my 'simply pretty' pattern which can be found here:

That's my little puppy Baron.  He will be 1 year old on August 5th.

Well, that's it for today - I'll see you next Sunday.  :)
