~ one more kitty cat bed ~

Good morning everyone.
I have just one kitty cat bed completed to show you this week.


It's been a slow week crochet wise.
I am working on a car seat blanket, but I'll have to show that to you next week.


I'm still taking care of Sami during the week, so you can imagine that she keeps me pretty busy.

Here she is offering 'cupcakes' to Grandpa and Uncle Bobby while they take a break from working in the yard:


and here she is helping Grandpa work on his motorcycle:


As you can see, she's a good Mom - she has her stroller full of babies right beside her.  There's the 2 on the bottom and there's 3 more in the seat.
Nine times out of ten I end up with them, but that's ok, that's what Yaya's are supposed to do.  :)

Have a great day ladies - I'll see you next time.

~ kitty cat beds and a scrappy purse ~

Good morning ladies.
Here are 3 more kitty beds that I have crocheted.
It's ridiculous how quick and easy these are to make.  I have plans to make a few more and then take them to my local animal hospital.



Sami let Kitty and baby Kitty help show how comfy these beds are.




~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This is a scrappy purse that I finished up finally.  It took me forever to sew on the handles.
I used a ball of scrap yarns that I had tied together along with a strand of white Red Heart Super Saver.

The pattern is posted here:



Have a great day everyone.  I'm going to do some housework before I'm off to visit with my Mom.  :)

~ my new blue purse ~

Here's my new blue purse that I finished a few days ago.


I crocheted it with 2 strands of worsted weight acrylic yarns and an L hook.
One strand is an old Sayelle variegated blue yarn that I bought from Goodwill, and the other strand is a Vanna's Choice medium blue.

If anyone is interested - the pattern is posted here (but with different handles):



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

~ kitty cat beds ~

Meow.
I have a big trash bag full of yarn balls that I need to do something with, so I thought of crocheting these kitty cat beds and giving them to the local animal hospital.
I'll most likely crochet some straight mats too for the puppies.

This first bed is for my niece's cat Chi - family comes first.


These kitty cat beds are crocheted with 3 strands of worsted weight acrylic yarns with an N hook.
It's a simple pattern, but I will write up the pattern and post it as soon as I can.


Enjoy your day - I'll see you next time.  :)
