One a Day is Back and My Crochet Granny Patches Blanket Update

Granny Patches Blanket Update...

Do you remember this?

Now it has grown into this...

What do you think? It's hard to show the colors so I will try and do better next time.  I hope you bet the idea. I am really excited about this one. I like it so much better with the white border around each color.  I am working in my ends as I do a couple of rows.  I find doing that, almost as satisfying as crocheting. It looks so good without all those ends hanging around! :)

It's going to be pretty big because I have a lot of squares and I want it to fit on my double bed.

Also, I just want to say that my heart and prayers go out to all of the victims of the tornado in Moore, Oklahoma.  For anyone interested in helping out, here is a list of charities if you would like to donate.

Here's where I am linking up this week...
I am so excited One a Day is back.  I would like to do at least one row a week so I can get this done.  Thanks Carole! We missed you.


Happy Crocheting!

Dishcloths and Potholders: Stash-buster Cotton

These quick and fun little projects have busted my cotton stash "Big Time". I only have three little balls of cotton yarn left! I'm so glad I joined the "2013 Stash-buster Challenge." Now, I can't wait to go shopping and pick up some new colors of cotton.

Dishcloths: These are so fun to make and I love the stitch.

Love this set Made with Hobby Lobby "I Love This Cotton".  These are so soft. Better than Sugar-N-Cream cotton. The potholder is made holding two yarns together. I used the plain yellow and the variegatedIt is nice and thick and worked up super fast. The Dishcloth is the same as above.

I'm not sure where I got the Potholder pattern below but when I find it I will post it here.  

Love these Potholders/Trivets: These were made holding two yarns together.  It was fun using any variegated yarn you have and yellow and then change to pink and switch back to yellow.  Tons of fun to make and it turned out a lot prettier than I thought it would.

Another Dishcloth same as above...

Have you been Stash-busting lately?

Happy Crocheting!

Hi blog land friends!

I've been busy with baby hats...

I think they are so sweet in green, purple and pink. I added little flowers with buttons for a little something extra. Sizes are small, medium and large.

Have a great week and "Happy Crocheting!"
