Catch Up On Crochet #13

Lucky number 13… So I’ve done a few things since last time. I did finish my 10 Hat Not Hate hats that I sent out a couple weeks ago. So there’s that. I did a couple light weight baby blankets… And I decided on a market bag pattern that I’ll do in a couple sizes for shows…. This is the small size, I think I’ll do another size about 5 inches wider as well. Just not sure how many of each I want to make up. Maybe 6? What do you guys think? They are 100% cotton… Here’s my latest … Continue reading Catch Up On Crochet #13

Diamond Painting Projects #9

Well, I don’t have any new finishes to show you guys this time, but I can show you some WIPs. So, here is my main project… This is a John Wayne image from Royal Diamond Painting. It will be a gift for my mom’s birthday in August. I’m about halfway through so that’s looking promising. But popping drills are a thing on this canvas. I might consider sealing it before framing. Though just framing is usually enough. Okay, here’s one for me… This is “Coffee is always a good idea” from Diamond Art Club. It’s a round with 1 AB. … Continue reading Diamond Painting Projects #9

SAL #47

Three weeks have gone by yet again, I know for some of you, they have probably seemed like long weeks. I, however, have still been working, just as many hours, if not more. Up until this week, I was even traveling 3 hours a day to get to work. But now I’m going to a store in town, so my commute is only 20 mins one way. That being said, I haven’t had as much time as I’m sure some of you have to work on crafty things. Sirius, however, is really liking being at my dad’s house for an … Continue reading SAL #47

Catch Up On Crochet #12

Okay, so I have a couple finishes to show you guys this time. I showed you the beginning of this blanket last time. So this is where I was, I was waiting for more yarn that I ordered to arrive… And here it is finished… Each color block is a skein of yarn. I used Paintbox Super Chunky. This is 8 1/2 skeins (the half is the white border that I did 2 rows of). I think that is my only true finish to show… So I started making a top…. I have one side complete and am working on … Continue reading Catch Up On Crochet #12

Diamond Painting Projects #8

Yay! I have some finished projects to show you guys this time! Alright, so here we go… This one is totally finished, she is from Diamond Art Club, Melinda and Moohoo by Hannah Lynn. I did cut off two rows of drills on either side to get her to fit in the frame. Though if I hadn’t just told you that, you’d probably never know. It’s an 18 x 26 frame that I ordered from Amazon. Oh and it’s square with AB drills. Okay, on to the next My 4 owls are complete. I’m not sure if I want to … Continue reading Diamond Painting Projects #8

SAL #46

It’s that time again! I hope all are doing well and that this craziness is not too bad for you. My company is considered an essential business, so I have still been going to work. I did have a planned vacation from the 16th through the 20th because Sirius got fixed. So, that being said, I did get to spend a little extra time on my project. So, this it where I was… And this is where I’m at now… So I’ve gotten a bit more done… Don’t forget to go check out everyone’s pages to see what they’ve been … Continue reading SAL #46

Diamond Painting Projects #7

Three weeks. Geez. I have been diligently working on Melinda and MooHoo every weekend, as I don’t take it with me on the road. I tend to take small projects along to the hotels, that I might have a chance of finishing. Anywho… Here is where I’m at with Melinda… Sooo close, only 4 more sections to go! (DAC) And my current hotel project… I just have that small section left to do and this one will be finished. (Amazon) I do have one finish to show you guys… I only have one more owl, and then the whole thing … Continue reading Diamond Painting Projects #7

Catch Up On Crochet #11

Another 3 weeks has gone by. And what do I have to show for it? In crochet? Not too much. But, I do have something! Since everyone is on the Granny Square kick, I thought I’d join in. It’s a bit larger than a baby blanket, more like a lap throw. I made this with Paintbox yarn. I also have a start on another blanket… I may finish this one up today… this is also made with Paintbox yarn… The scarf that I showed last time? I think I’ve decided to frog it out, and make it much wider … Continue reading Catch Up On Crochet #11

SAL #45

Where does the time go? Really? So, I actually did put a bit of time into stitching this round. Here is where I was last time… And here is where I am now… There are a couple new colors popping in and it’s been pretty fun. Joann’s had a sale on embroidery floss, and an extra 25% off total purchase, so last night I picked up most of the colors for my next project. It’s from the same magazine, but spans several issues so I had to track down the back issues and order a really big peice of fabric. … Continue reading SAL #45

Catch Up On Crochet #10

Wow I’m on #10 for crochet posts already. That’s 30 weeks of posts… Anyway, I did not do too much to show you this time. A couple finished projects and a WIP. So, I still have just a couple more headbands to do to finish what I wanted to have ready and here are a few of them… And this is my current WIP, it was going to be a cowl, but is becoming a scarf… I recently ordered some yarn online and below are the unboxings that I did of them… So what do you think?
