~ I don't know ~

A while back I opened up a blog with the name 'Dly's Crafts and Stuff', but then closed it a few months later.  I have noticed that someone else is using that blog now.  It is not me.  It looks like they are posting about video game hacks.  Please unfollow that blog if you still have it in your 'Reading List'.  

I can't help but wonder why they didn't change the name.

Thanks everyone - enjoy your day.  :)

~ Tuesday Morning stuff ~

I was on my way to the grocery store yesterday and decided to drop in to the Tuesday Morning store first.  I had heard from other people that they had scored yarn there, so I wanted to see if I could too.  I didn't have a lot of extra spending money, so I really had to restrain myself.  There was scrapbooking stuff, beads, paints, sewing stuff, knitting needles, craft books and yarn.  I chose carefully - this is what I got:

I bought the knitting needles because they were only 99 cents - I'm thinking one day I will try knitting again.  I don't know.  :)

~ A baby cocoon ~

Finished up this baby cocoon last night.  It's crocheted with Bernat Baby Blanket yarn - which is a size 6 bulky and 100% polyester.  This is a chenille type yarn and it's very soft and squishy.   The hook recommendation for this yarn is a 'K', but I used an 'L'.

~ 'guardian grandmas' donations ~

I've received 2 more 'guardian grandmas' donations, and here they are.  The first one is from Akhila - she sent along a stripey blankie and 6 little hats.  Aren't they just adorable?  I love the flowers that she added to the hats.  Thank you very much Akhila.  ♥ to you.  

The second donation is from Liz E.  She sent along two precious baby blankies.  I really love the pink and brown one.  But then again, I really love the pastel ripple one too.  They're both very pretty.  Thanks so much Liz.  ♥ to you also.    

If anyone is interested in the 'guardian grandmas' - just click on this link for info:

Thanks for dropping by - see you next time.  :)

~ ?'s, a video and Little Woolie's giveaway ~


Hi everyone.  I've seen this idea going around and thought that I would give it a try.  If you have any questions that you would like to ask me, just leave a comment on this post.  It can be about anything really - questions about crochet, me, my life, even the campground where I love to go in the Summer months.  When I get enough questions, I will come back and answer them in a blog post (or video).
