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 & Books! Yarn Along Wednesday

 In between other crochet projects, I like to do little crochet projects that go quickly.  I made this hot pad-trivet thingy for my new kitchen.  I was inspired by the colors on Helen Philips blog (on my side bar).
and these chairs that I bought for my kitchen table yesterday!  But these are another blog post.
 I actually made two granny squares and single crocheted them together back to back.
 Just a fun quick project to do in between longer projects.

 The roads don't look too bad here, but they are.  We are in that Indiana bad weather going on right now.  This picture was taken earlier today and that is ice on the roads.  Now it's snowing like crazy outside and covering up the ice. 

There are a few things I always want to do during bad weather like this.....
They are...
 Chewy Granola Bars (click on the title for the recipe.  They are yummy)
 Peach Pie for my Shug
This is a "weekender bag" I got at the library a couple of weeks ago.
You pick out a bag and the topic is listed on the card tied to the bag.  
I had two choices at the time.  Mardis Gras or Lent.
If you fill out a comment card you are entered into a contest.  I forget what the prize is but I think it's an overnight in Indy.
In the bag is popcorn, music, movies, and books. 
 (Definitely going to have to watch "Chocolat" again.  I love this movie and own it, but never realized it was about lent!

 I also started this basket topper.
 I made one of these before years ago and I like they way they turn out.  They are great for storage.
or CLEAN, which I did not choose to do today!

I'm linking up to a Small Things YARN ALONG today.

  3. I love that trivet and I just posted about them too! I am so bad about keeping up with blogs, but you know you are always one of my very favorite!

    1. Thank you PS! That was such a nice thing for you to say. I'm bad about it too. Just too busy with the house, but I'm trying to do better about blogging.

  4. Cindy, I love your pot holders...they make me think of some my MIL had years ago. The style. That road looks scary. I know when it snows over ice, we some times forget about the ice. This weekend is to be nice and I am ready for sunshine. Blessings, xoxo,Susie
