I've been canning a lot lately! My husband bought me an All American Pressure Canner, so I've been going to town with that. I've canned beans, meat, soups, broth, veggies - anything that I can get my hot little hands on!
In the crochet end, I've made this cute little breakfast food set a while back, which I recently donated to my 3-yr old niece's play kitchen (Egg pattern HERE, Bacon pattern at Lion Brand HERE, Cup of Coffee pattern HERE) :
I also made cool dinosaur pillow covers for a second cousin (sorry - these are originals! No pattern.):
I've been giving away some of these beautiful tiny bags (also originals, but bags are pretty easy-peasy):
|Blue Acrylic with Fancy Clasp|
|Rainbow Acrylic with Metal Ring in the Bottom|
I made this cute little roly-poly penguin (free pattern at Lion Brand, requires account):
I made a terrific gift basket for a friend who moved into a new place:
|Wine, Glasses, Butterfly stickers, |
and an Assortment of Kitchen Supplies
I cooked some delicious food:
|Stuffed Sweet Pepper|
|Bugs on a Boat|
|Meat and Cheese Platter|
I carved some awesome pumpkins:
|United Natural Foods Logo|
|Autobot Logo - Transformers|
I've been giving away a lot of crochet stuff lately - it just winds up sitting around and collecting dust, so I feel better giving it to someone who will provide my art with a loving, appreciative home.
I apologize to you guys - I'll try to keep up with this blog, and start posting more often. Next post, I'll show off my current project, a crochet commission for a friend. Thanks for hanging in there!
