Sunflower


I have a birdfeeder out by the patio and as always weeds and stuff grow underneath. I noticed this sunflower a couple of weeks ago - it has 5 blooms on it. Now the birdies can eat those.

Dishcloth


I crocheted this dishcloth last night. It's made with Coats & Clark Creme de la Creme and I used an "I" hook. My sister Julie loves these things.

Chenille purse & bottle carrier



Here's a couple of projects I've finished last night and today. The chenille purse and cell phone cover are made with Lion Brand Thick & Quick Chenille - I used an "L" hook. The water bottle carrier I crocheted with Coats & Clark Creme de la Creme cotton yarn - I used an "I" hook.

Another "Inga's bag"


Here's the other "Inga's crocheted bag" that I finished last night. This one is more my size for an everyday purse. It measures 10" x 11" x 5". Now I just have to get a pair of clear "U" shaped handles at Joann's.

"Inga's crocheted purse"


I finished this "Inga's crocheted purse" this afternoon - minus the crocheted handles. I wanted to add a pair of pink U-shaped acrylic handles but they are not wide enough. I'm going to ask Vince if he can make a pair of wider ones out of wood. The bag is also a little too large for my needs - it's 13 1/2" across, 14" from top to bottom and about 8" wide.


I've started another with some pretty blue, green and white variegated yarn that I bought off of Ebay. I'm going to make 3 round squares instead of 4 round squares. Hopefully the size will turn out better for me.
