There isn't a pattern on this post, but if you search Google you'll find some. This was made by trial and error for my small head. This project took a lot of time, and was fiddly with the bulk of the cans once they were joined, so I don't think I would make it again.… Continue reading Gram’s Guinness beer can hat
Repurposing a wine box
In my garage was an Opus One wine box box that has moved with me to a few homes with the idea it could be made into something else. I mean, since 1994. Sadly the lid was warped, so it limited what I could do with it. I removed one long side then attached that… Continue reading Repurposing a wine box
Joann fabrics had doorbusters and this jumbo yarn on sale 3 for $20. They're @1,000 yds each. Before you poo-poo this yarn, hear me out. It's perfect for something I needed - a small washable rug for winter. My feet have been cold on the bare floor when I sit at my table. Pulling from… Continue reading Crochet rug
Christmas Bynx Hat
Love this pattern and the poms I found on etsy. I don't have anyone in mind for these just yet, but that's never a problem for long! I also have a few January birthdays to consider.
Rectangle granny blankets
Made for the charity Project Linus, granny patterns are great for destashing acrylic yarn, which is what the charity prefers.
Dropping this "big kid" blanket in cheerful colors off to Project Linus. Loved working on it. Hope it's a comfort.🧡💙💚💛
Peanut Butter Jelly time!
Made these for someone who eats PBJ everyday and they like silly stuff. Before gifting, a quick photo session in the spring green grass. They loved these. Happy crocheting!
St. Patrick’s Day afghan
There's a great sense of accomplishment when you see a pattern, and can manage it without buying the supplies. It almost justifies the yarn hoarding you've been doing all this time. Almost. A close up. This is my version of the Fields of Clover Afghan from Premier Yarns. Modified slightly to accommodate my acrylic stash,… Continue reading St. Patrick’s Day afghan
A Quieter Christmas
No guests. No potlucks. No parties. Hoping the new year brings new hope for better things in 2021. We'll sure miss those we've lost and have a new appreciation for what we used to have. Merry everything! Here's a little christmas decor from around our house... An 80s cookie jar from eBay. Score! The festive… Continue reading A Quieter Christmas
Grinches for Christmas
Painted recycled lightbulbs collected from years at our old home, and now this one, make great ornaments. These Grinch ones are fun to paint. The idea was on Pinterest years ago. People love to receive them and I can't think of a more appropriate mascot for 2020. Painting and hot gluing out in the shed.… Continue reading Grinches for Christmas
