Square Oranges

This is a lap ghanl that recently made out of a book called "One Square Many Ways" called Bright Oranges. Also I have photos of the placemats' that I finished some time ago. Going forward my concentration will be on the afghan that I am making for my brother and sister in-law.

That's all for today. I wish everyone a beautiful weekend.

Granny ScrapGhan

Here is a granny square afghan that I made using scraps left over from other projects. I love the way it turned out. This will be our bed-cover until further notice.

Thats all for today, I think :)

Ian's Bearghan

So here is the second Bearghan completed. I made the head pattern up myself and I never write anything down so this one is different from Lily's. I think it gives them their own personality. LOL

I hope the kids and mom and dad like them. They will be spending the day with us on the 19th of this month.

My Make a Wish Foundation Afghan

I made this afghan for a Make a Wish Foundation fund raiser here in our area. Go and read the story that inspired me to donate something. This is the link Dylans Story and Veronica, (Dylan's mom) has been doing this 10 years now. I hope to help her out more next year and get more involved.

What a great cause. Maybe some of you would like to contribute something for next October's event? Handmade things tend to raffle very well and are also wonderful silent auction pieces. If you are interested you can contact me or Veronica directly at the web site above.


Oven Mitts

Here is the post that I promised about the oven mitts. I can whip one of these up in less than 30 minutes. They are fast and fun to make. I forget where I got the pattern but it was free. If you really want the pattern leave me a comment and I will get the pattern to you or look more for it and post it on this blog.

Here is the link and thanks to sis I have it handy.

Oven Mitts

Hope everyone is having a great week so far.

Back again.

Well I need to get into the habit of posting again. I have lots to share since last time I posted. First is a photo of some bed jackets that I made for my Crafting for a Cause group. I dressed them up a bit so they would not look so plain. I think the babies will be too small and inactive enough so that they do not play with the adornments. Even so if they do they can easily be taking off by the parents.

Next is my version of the Bearghan. I am making these for our friends kids that are coming for a visit on the 19th from Seattle. Their names are Lily and Ian. This one is for Lily and I am currently working on one for Ian in blue and yellow. Not sure if it looks like a Bear or a Weird Bird. LOL Anyway I am sure they will love them.

Anyway that is all for now. I will post again with some oven mitts that I made out of cotton. They are great!!
