not crochet:: memory box

I’ve never told you my baby’s name before, but it’s Alex.

And well, since he is larger & more of a badass than I, it’s probably safe to disclose that information 😀

I made him a card album & memory box this weekend since he has graduated & become an adult.

He graduated in May, so I figure 3 months to get it done isn’t so bad. Baby shoes included:)

food:: it’s harvest thyme

just a few snaps of my first go at dehydrating herbs

Lesson learned:: do not believe the directions

Replace with:: objects in dehydrator may take 6 times the suggested number of hours to dry

crochet:: a tiny (p)update

This little guy is too entirely cute not to show you what he looks like in his yoda hat.

Told you, I did😉

crochet:: pinafore feedback

Since I’ve gotten such great feedback recently, I’ve just got to share more.

Joanne found pictures of my toddler pinafore, which led her here.

She was gracious and sent me WiP photo :)

Thanks for stopping by!

crochet:: i love feedback

The other day I received a lovely email from Kim T.

She had taken one of my projects from way back when, and ran with it.

Check out the AWESOME pug mobile she conjured up!

Nice work Kim :) And a special thank you for sharing it with me.

Have a ridiculously amazing day!

crochet:: rainbow granny rug 2.0

So waaaaayyy back when I started this little bloggity adventure many moons ago, I shared my rainbow granny rug. I made it to warm up my pitiful little laundry room.

It was looking pretty rough lately, so I gave it a big ole reboot.

I recycled about 90% of the yarn, added a little more, and reversed the colors.

Viola!

 
What’s old, is new again.

Happy hooking!

 

crochet:: tiny yoda pup hat

Hey there, hi there, ho there… I’ve been without wifi for ages. OK, not really ages, but it sure feels that way. And I got a new job, and well, you know…summer…

A friend requested a yoda hat for this little guy.

 
Not that he really needs any help in the ear department😃

So I sat down to play with some shimmery yoda-esque colored acrylic yarn last night…

 
For some reason, I can’t con the cats into modeling for me…

 
I’m giving a whirl with posting from my mobile, just because.  What do you think?
