Did everyone put their scrap yarn out for the birds to use for nesting? Tis time.
I didn't want to see colorful yarn in my dogs poo, so I put it up on a pile of bricks we have in the yard. I hope the birds found it before the wind blew it down.
So do all of you remember the granny square blanket I was trying to make from January. I had a color issue , then I had a needle size issue. Well, last Saturday the Granny Bees (stitchery group) had an all day workshop, and I decided to get the granny yarn out. I have the 5.5 hook now, and I have the colors.
I wasn't sure about this first square, and then Marilyn and I decided, it's gonna look just fine when it's all done, because the colors match in the rug, so they should all match in the blankey.
I just realized I did a pink and green border on one, and a green and pink border on the other one. I love this color of pink. I might have to buy more of it.
One evening last week Scribe and RJ rode with me to a Granny Bee meeting. I didn't know it was "give your friend a hand crafted item day."
Scribe gave me this felted bee.
I have her sitting on the Queen Bee's lap until she gets her bearings straight on her new home. Have you ever watched a honey bee exit a hive? They fly around the hive in circles above it, to get their bearings straight!
When Easter comes, she will have a prominent place on the Easter tree.
And when RJ got in the car, she gave me this crocheted bunny!
Hello? how cute is this stuff. I put the bunny up high so Dixie Doodle and Winston won't think it's a toy. Speaking of...someone asked me last Saturday if I finished my last afghan I was working on. Uhhh, noooo, not since I discovered dog pee on the yarn thank you very much for reminding me.
I did a little bit of rug punch. It's gonna be a coaster :) I'm not sure if I'm into rug punch, but some of the women there are doing beeautiful stuff with it. The Granny Bee brought it to my attention in the comment section of this post that the above is RUG HOOKING, not rug punch. And this is why she IS THE GRANNY BEE, master of all things stitchery, and I am the Bee Lady. A beekeeper, learning to be a stitcher. (she's smiling right now, I guarantee it.)
So, for show and tell, I brought this.....
This is the back side. That is a wish bone that's been crocheted around. Yeah, like a chicken wish bone. I know it's weird but that's what it is. I didn't make it, it came in a bag of stuff I bought.
This is the front
