This wonderfully colorful blanket is for my "nephew" (my best friends son). He was admiring an afghan I was making one day and asked if he could have it when I finished it. I told him he couldn't have that one, but that I would make him one, and asked him what colors. He said he wanted something colorful............ so that's what I gave him :-)
I watched a freeform crochet class on "Uncommon Threads" yesterday Prudence Mapstone was the guest. I am now inspired to try my first freeform purse, I plan on getting the stuff for it today!

The little Webkinz black cat in the front has been adopted by DD.
I absolutely love the Tea Spot cup and loose leaf tea she sent me. I loved EVERYTHING she sent! Thanks Paula/OzRebel!!!!
And this is one of my WIPs. It's for my best friends little boy for Christmas. I am using a pattern from Bella Dia - Vintage Vertical Stripe Crocheted Blanket Pattern. It's turning out great, and it's super easy to work.

I am working on a few more things for my Autumn Secret Pal Swap and Winter Scarf Swap, which I intend on completing and sending packages out before I leave for Hawaii in a couple of weeks. I will post pics of that stuff after I come back from vacation :-) don't want to spoil the surprise for my fellow swappers !

In the mean time, I've been working on dishclothes and this cotton tote that my daughter is modeling :-) (as you can see, I haven't figured out how to change the date on my new camera yet)
It's been entirely too HOT here to work on anything larger or heavier. I can't wait for it to cool off a bit.
So bought more polar fleece for my next fleece/yarn 'ghan. It's going to be for my nephew for his birthday, I got Tony Stewart fleece, it's his fav NASCAR driver.

I used the pattern on the link below using a j hook and RH WW yarn
I think I chained 150 to start, the pattern says 100, but I wanted it to cover the top of a queen bed, so I made it a little bigger.
Here are a few of the projects I have completed recently.
Baby bibs and bottle cover
Baby cradle purses. I started making these because my grandma made one for me when I was a little girl, and it is one of my fondest memories of her.
