Update on my campground trailer project: The 1st window topper is complete. This one is for the dining room double window. I tried not to make it too girly - after all, there are men to keep in mind, and they don't appreciate a lot of girly stuff. There's only 3 of us girls - me, my sister Laura and my daughter Erica - and there are 7 guys - my husband Vince, my son Bobby, my nephews Travis and Spencer, my grandsons William and James, and Erica's fiance Dave. I have to be fair to them.
The window topper was crocheted with Caron One Pound in 'sunflower' and it measures 76" across by 9" top to bottom. I can't wait until my next trip to the campground to see how it looks hanging on the window.
Ms. Luna of 'My Crochet, Mis Tejidos' posted a cute pattern for a baby pom-pom hat a couple of days ago. I thought it was very cute, so I made one. Mine doesn't have pom-poms though. I had such trouble with trying to make them last night, that I just gave up. Maybe next time. Well anyways - here's the little hat I made yesterday:
I'm gonna make a couple more, but instead of sc I think I'll use half double crochets.
My dogs Tex and Ladybug found a new friend this morning. I looked out the back door and saw Tex sniffing around like crazy and Ladybug was just standing there staring intently. I went out and found this turtle just minding her own business walking through the garden we have on our patio. I wanted to keep her and make a crocheted cozy for her - http://geekcrafts.com/13351-crocheted-turtle-cozies/ - but since I know nothing about the care of turtles, I decided not too. I'm going to be doing some research on that now and the next time a turtle wanders into our yard, she'll be mine. Bwahahaha! :)
(wouldn't she look cute with a crocheted flower on her back?)
