Labor Day

This Labor Day I labored in the kitchen by making home made vanilla ice cream and home made wheat bread. My husband also was busy cooking with dinner and this peach dessert with Rice Krispie squares and chocolate topping.
I also made a dishcloth with the star stitch. I was inspired to make this after seeing a tweet from Knit Picks. I did a slight change to this stitch by using dc stitch instead of hdc stitch.

Paper Flowers

What do you do with ugly wall paper you get at an auction? You do crafts with them. In this case it is I made paper flowers with the grand kids. They colored on one side of the paper and I cut out the flowers. I layered several flowers on a pipe cleaner to create the flower. To be honest, I think I had more fun than they did.

Wild Thing

It was not my intention to make a doll, but it just turned into one. I had some of this blue mesh type fabric I picked up at Hobby Lobby. I had no idea what I was going to do with it.  It sat in my stash for months. Then I thought I would make simple square and fill it with my scraps of yarn. Well, the square did not happen and Wild Thing was born.

Granny Square Blanket

I can't remember the last time a granny square blanket. This will likely be a baby blanket as I only have one skein of each color. If you notice, this square starts out as a circle and forms into a square.

Fashionable Scarf

I am just showing off my latest project. I was inspired to make this scarf after seeing a doily attached to scarf ends in blog land. I ended crossing ends of the scarf over and attaching a granny square on the end. The granny square is a little different because I started out making a circle and formed it into a square. 
As it turns out, I really like the square. This inspired to start a blanket using this square. So I will have more this project later.

Neon Blanket

I had decided to start working again on the neon blanket. So as you can see, I changed to a much smaller domino square. I was starting to run out of some colors and could not keep up the pattern. I might go to a bigger domino square after I finish the second row of small squares.
