Gradient Crochet Thread

Ooh! I purchased the last 4 skeins of this Katia crochet thread on clearance. The first thing that popped into my mind was to make a sample doily because the thread is so thin. I found an easy pattern from Crochet Jewel on YouTube and now I can't stop because the results are so awesome!

Christmas Angel Cross Stitch Continues

I finished my last knit project feeling a little unsatisfied with it. I don't even want to rip it back for the moment. I just wasn't in the knitty kind of mood so I picked up a cross stitch project that I started a few days ago and just kept at it taking advantage of the natural day light.

A Christmas Plate

I found two Christmas plates at TJMaxx that made their way into my shopping basket. The intention originally was to gift them to friends but I just couldn't part with them. My "solution" was to gift a plate to each one of my daughters - teehee. I have been using them more than they have.

Dodger Blue Baby Blanket

I finished that baby blanket and delivered it to my friend. I was able to memorize the pattern after a few rounds. This was the first time using this Anne Geddes baby yarn from Red Heart and probably my last as the yarn got very shaggy.
