It's a Girl - NO WAIT - It's TWIN Girls


My neice is officially pregnant with twin girls. HOW EXCITING IS THAT?

Her baby shower is this weekend so I thought I would crochet her a couple of gifts for the new baby's to be.
Here is what I have come up with so far.

I love the way they turned out - they are soooo soft. They are done in double crochet with the trim using single crochet. I thought the bow's were a nice touch for the baby's.
I am going to make matching booties this weekend - I hope I have enough time to get it done.
We have to clean out our gutter and wipe ceilings off in our home so it will not leave a lot of time to get them done. If I do I will post them.

Rug for Kitchen

This is a start to a rug I am making for my kitchen. It is actually one of two rugs I am making. I am going to make the second one the same. One in front of my kitchen sink and the other for in front of my stove. It is going pretty slow because of course it is just crocheting in the round using single crochet with a huge crochet hook - so it is very boring. But am using the yarn in 4's to make it thick. I think once it is done it will be very nice.
Will post finished product when done.

Necklace


Here is a necklace I made from Acrylic yarn - It is three stranded using a simple single crochet and the closure button is with a vintage white pearlized button and the cream colored applique has a black pearlized button. It is a beautiful necklace but using acrylic yarn (which is what I have used here) wasn't probably the best choice. Maybe cotton would lay better - I wore this a few times and it didn't lay the best and didn't stay in place so I had to fuss with it throughout the night. Next time I will use different yarn - because it is a very nice piece











Finished Rag Rug



Finally, I am posting my finished rag rug. I finished it sometime ago and just haven't had time to post anything lately. But I gave this rag rug to, Beth, a friend of mine. She was pleasantly surprised.

We have had a very busy summer here so I have lots of things to post - so stay tuned.

Beatiful Rag Rug

This is still a Work in Progress.

I absolutely am having fun making the Rag Rug. It is obviously time consuming but is soooo worth it. I can't wait to finish it. It is just beautiful.

The pattern for this is here: Click here for pattern

I am using sheets for my rug and just love the colors. So will post the finished picture when done.
