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!

My mail surprise and a finished WIP!

Thank You Connie from Crafty Home Cottage
 
 for the very cute bunting. I know my shelf looks a bit cluttered-but it's because I have ALL of the dishes done, and everything put away.  Oh I suppose I could have stacked things a little better, but look at the cute heart bunting okay?  That's what I'm showing you!  I won it from Connie!
 
 And thank you for the adorbs cookie cutter, pot holder, and dish towel.  Love it all.  And check out the pic....told ya I have red in my kitchen!  Matches PERFECT! 

The other day I made a quick stop by our local fabric store and they had all crochet and knitting books 40% off.  I bought a couple. I came home straight away (I'm watching Cranford - that's how they talk)....so....I came home straight away and began to work on my handwarmers.  They are now complete!

 They match my Dottie Angel High Hopes Wrap.  If you go to her blog, look up High Hopes Wrap, you will find the pattern, which I believe she might refer to as a recipe.  Here is a reminder of what it looks like, since it's been awhile since I've shown it to you.  It's been so long ago that when I finished it, i was in flip flops, and now I'm in boots.

So, how does one take a picture of hand warmers on their hands?  I tried to set the timer on  my camer and I kept messing up.  This was the best I got.  My hair was wet, not greasy.  But just now when I downloaded this picture, I called my beautician to get my hairs cut! 
 This is my year of learning and trying new things.  I've even signed up for a couple of classes on how to do things with my I-phone.  So, I decided rather than crochet some flowers, even though I bought a Cute and Easy Crochet Flower book, I decided to try to embroider flowers on the hand warmers.

I tried to take the picture this way...still setting the timer, so you get an idea...but you can't see the smooshy arms.
Ta
 Dah!
My favorite crochet hand warmers so far!

 Onto the next WIP!

What are you working on?

  3. Oh I love how you finished of the hand warmers! I need to make myself a pair I have never had any. LOVE. For some reason can enlarge all your pictures except the first one with the bunting. I always click on pictures so I can see better. Old eyes. I expect the bunting is very pretty though. Isn't it wonderful to finish something! I got the yarn I ordered for the two CAL afghans I am making for Christmas presents this year so I am playing catch up. Then this morning Moogly posted that she is doing another CAL. Scarves/cowls four, one for each season. I want to do everything I see at the start of the year. Should stop looking.

    1. Hi Brenda,
      Thanks. Handwarmers are easy to make. Maybe I should start a CAL on handwarmers!!! Glad your yarn came in. I hope you love it as much in person as you did on the computer. And you reminded me....I need to order a few skeins of a color that is discontinued. I better get on that. Well, I did not start any afghans. I decided I HAVE TO FINISH stuff before I go cray-cray!
