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.

A few petite pumpkins for fall gift giving with one to my October-born middle boy. This adorable and free pattern found here. Great TV watching quick project from stash. I made 8 in a weekend, just couldn't stop. The minis are made with sock wool, then some larger with dk.

Then added a BL(black) 7 stitch DC shell over the WH(colored yarn) ch sp's in front, and picked up each BL(black) CH sp from behind and making 1… Continue reading Colorful Coasters

My sister saw some doily rugs on Etsy or Pinterest, made from tshirts or that tshirt yarn and asked me if I could make one. I tried to find the yarn for a while, but it's a little hard to come by and when I did find it, the tiny rug would be very expensive,… Continue reading A Doily Rug for My Sister
