Gotta make something

For as long as I can remember I have this need to make things, to keep my hands busy. Who cares if I make a big mess in the process as long as I am making something. I know my hubby wishes that I get the urge to make a lot of great dinners but that's not happening. I could make him a nice place mat tho. lol

I've got all these fat quarters of fabric laying around doing nothing and I saw this way cute double pointed needle holder and as the lady is charging $28 and $31 for hers I decided to make my own. So far I've got the material cut and the batting too for one. Now just gotta find a clear place on my kitchen table to put my machine and I'll have one made in a jiffy. If it turns out good enough I'm gonna make a couple of them. Could use one as a prize in my knitting group.

Only way to keep the members posting is to bribe them with prizes. lol Will post a photo when I've gotten a couple done.

A Crocheted item

So I haven't crocheted in such a long time. I had forgotten where I put my hooks. But I saw this really cute flower scarf being given away in a contest and I entered the contest but just in case I don't win I figured that I could make one, if I found those hooks.
I looked and looked then just as I was getting frazzled I looked out the window and there was the container with my hooks. sitting in the window all this time. whew
So with my contest winning prize of some lion brand suede yarn in Olive, I crocheted a flower and then the chains, 10 of them. and it was done!! Here it is being modeled by my grand daughters Monica and Olivia, and by the way Olivia's birthday was on the 5th of this month and she is now 12, and Monica's birthday is on the 14 of this month and she will be 15.
