Decorative Bowl

I have been wanting to do this for a while. I have some of my dad's torn hankerchiefs, and I knew I wanted to make a project with them. I have posted a Decorative Bowl pattern a while back, this time using strips of the hankerchiefs. I had left over strips and made bows along the top of the bowl.

Finished Projects

I finished up a spiral blanket and a simple square blanket. I did not follow a pattern for either project. I am going to be a grandmother in January, my daughter might want these. The spiral blanket might be a little small, though it could work out for a car carrier.

A while back I made a baby hat that resembled Magikarp. Magikarp is a Pokemon character. The pattern for this hat is found on Ravelry. It is an adult pattern. This is the baby hat I made, my daughter requested that I make it for her. She loved it, then requested that I make the adult pattern.

Here is the adult hat. It turned out too big. It might be more useful as a toy or pillow cover.

A Line Dress

I have a 20th wedding anniversary Caribbean cruise coming up next year and I was thinking about making a nice dress. I have never made a dress before so I started on something simple. This is a prototype dress using a Crochet Simple A Line dress. It is a free pattern on Ravelry.

I also started a spiral blanket.

This is a photo of my great-grandparents farm house. I had found the picture on We could not identity any of the people in the photo.

This is the a picture of the house and yard where I grew up in Wisconsin.

This is one of many hats that my grandmother made. She is still doing well at 96.
