In my blog I plan to chat about nature, crafts, baking, gardening, beekeeping, family, and whatever else seems appropriate at the time. Sit back, relax, and enjoy!

Crochet and Biscoff!

Every time I get a few minutes, I've been working on this blanket. I have one more color to go on the border, then I probably need to figure out what border I'm going to use for the last go around, then I'm done. My Shug and I have noticed, that anytime this dog sees a home made anything, he is on it.

And I took the advice of a friend who commented that I need to stick with one big project, and work on smaller things in between, but not to start another big project. I remembered seeing some coasters somewhere, but I couldn't remember where I saw the pattern.


It looks something like this, but the petals were more defined.


I fiddled around but I just couldn't get it. Then I remembered, it was in an issue of Mollie Makes.


I've been looking for it again, and I can't find it to save my life.


But what I did, was use the middle of the pattern I made up when I was playing around, and then some of the pattern I saw in the magazine, or on the blog, (wherever I saw it) and now, I've made several of them.




Quick, easy, and fun.


I gave my cousin Vickie a set for her birthday.


I want to make some for myself. I


I made a smaller one so I can stack them and use them for embellishing as well. So that's what I've been up to. Finishing!


And bummer....I bought a pack of Biscoff for our Italy trip...just gotta have Biscoff when on a plane....


My Shug found them.


Ciao, (did I spell that right?)
