Crochet at Sunset...

How could anyone not stop,
but if only for a moment,
and breath in the beauty
of such a sunset?

I was unable to concentrate
on my crochet project.

The beauty of such a sunset had
my full attention.

Crochet, crochet and a little bit of knit...

I have allot of yarn!
I mean a bunch of yarn. Heaps and heaps of it!
Frankly, I have twelve, thirty gallon plastic storage bins full of yarn!

What this means is I MUST use at least half, if not three quaters
of it, by the end of this year!

Here is what I've started with...

Old School Crafing Fun

   Many of us Crafty Folks have at least ONCE in our lives used these classic weaver looms and loops.

Over the many years I have worked with children,
taught and even raised my own two kids who are now adults.  These weaving looms and loops have always had a place within my crafting supplies.

       Sadly, most recently since I am no longer teaching, I realised it had been awhile since they had been used though. So I packed up the half dozen or so looms and loops I had and donated them to a local Brownie Troop.               
  However, I just couldn't help myself, I had to keep one set for me!  And why not? These wee potholders and coaster are great useful items! I've (in the past) made dozens of them, sewn them together and used them as a table pad/guard. And I've used them as place mats. For now, I am just having fun weaving while I watch television. :)

Sock Pals

I've enjoyed making sock pals.
They are simple enough and easy to construct from discarded socks and sewing scraps.
I love this little fellows nose!

Pink Heart!

Recently I was rooting through my clothes and realised I had a brand new zipper sweat shirt from my old place of employment! Being that's it's brand new I didn't want to toss it out!  However, the schools logo was on it, and I didn't want to wear it with that.  So I decided to cover it. This is what I decided to do!!!

Make Something colourful Everyday!

One of my goals for 2011 is to make something colourful everyday!
I've started the new year out with a few small projects.
I'm hopeful that by the end of this year, I'll have made over 365 items.

Now I'm not sure I'll be able to upload pictures everyday, I shall try, going forward.
I will also try and make a tutorial every couple of weeks and upload to this site and link to my
YouTube page.
As for now, here are a few pictures of the items I've made since the first of the new year:
