I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I know in these tough times that it's hard to think of others but let's all try to give a helping hand to those less fortunate.

I love these quiz things!

These are good with Thanksgiving right around the bend.
You Are Apple Pie

You're the perfect combo of comforting and traditional
Those who like you crave security

You Are Mashed Potatoes

Oridnary, comforting, and more than a little predictable
You're the glue that holds everyone together.

Newest project:

Since Christmas is drawing fast upon us, this is crochet crunch-time! Check out the Christmas links on my homepage for some fast and easy Christmas ornaments and quick gifts ideas.

I'm currently working on a poncho for my grand daughter. Ryann is a peanut. She's 4 but very tiny (she was a 4lb. + premmie). I have found that most patterns designed for toddlers or young children are just too big in the neck area, so they fall off her shoulders, or too small, like the toddler sizes that are to short. Anyway, when I finish I will post the pattern on my web site.


I've just finished moving my BLOG over here to BlogSpot. This blog site allows direct comments to any of my postings. Don't be shy! Let me hear from you!

Snuggle Cover for my Grand daughter

I had recently made some 12" squares from my Gerbera Daisy Granny Square pattern to donate to a Comfortghan request on the Crochetville site.
After I made those I decided to made a 3 square by 4 square Snuggle Cover for my grand daughter Ryann. I used 2 shades of pink, 2 shades of blue, 2 shades of yellow, 2 shades of lavender/purple and 2 shades of peach to make the 12 squares. I used a flower button with a happy face in the middle to accent the center of each square. I'll post a pic of the finished cover when it's done. I haven't decided what type of edging or border to do. Any suggestions?

Work in Progress

What I'm working on.
I'm currently working on a puppy cover. I was playing around with an idea for a granny square I call "Gerbera Daisy". I know I have seen similar squares somewhere on line, but this is my own concoction.
I had to scan the square, camera's on the fritz. The colors are a deep brown center, gold Popcorn stitch round, hunter green "leaves", a buff colored round and finished in soft denim. It's much prettier in person.
I made 3 sample squares and put them together in a rectangle. Now I'm working granny square rows around to make a cover for the dog. Our little sweetie is a 3 year old Doxie named SnickleFritz.
He loves to sleep on the sofa and constantly pulls the big afghans off the back of the sofa to snuggle up on. He has a couple of comfy covers already but he always needs more!
