Crochet Arty The Smarty Baby Bib!


My daughter loves this book so much, so I accepted my husband's challenge to make this bib, I think it turned out cute! My daughter is waay to big to wear this, so I think I'll make her a blanket in the same picture (it is from the cover of the book).

Hey Diddle Diddle crochet baby mobile




I made this for a friend of mine and she loved it. It was fun to make, a challenge to create the dog and the cow, but it turned out cute I think. :)

Octopus's Garden!



I'd like to be, under the sea, in an Octopus's garden in the shade...

Ah Ringo, how we love you so! :) This is Ringo Star, his heartfelt, fun style:

Being for the benefit of Mr Kite...




...in this way Mr K will challenge the world!

From the Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band album: Being for the benefit of Mr Kite.

You must listen to the song to get what I have done here :)

The Fool On The Hill



From The Magical Mystery Tour, an extremely emotional song, gut wrentching, I thought I would try to capture that feeling, so far the strongest response has been myself, and my brother:

Ladies and gentelmen, meet The Beatles!!!!!!!



I have loved The Beatles since 1978, when my father gave me my first records and record player. The first 45 he gave me was "Yesterday" and from then on I was hooked. By the age of 7 or 8, I had already worn out not one, but 2 Sgt Peppers' Lonely Hearts Club Band albums.

I grew up with The Beatles, not like my father did, but in a sense, sort of :)

Their music has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember, whenever I hear them, it feels like "home" it feels like "me".

Here is muy tribute to them:

Strawberry Fields Forever (one of my favorite songs of all time):

Finishing up the Spongebob crew...








They are finished yeah! Here they are:

I started Squidward's head!


At first he was a challenge, figuring out how to do the shape, but it came along a lot easier than I thought it would be. I may do eyelids, not sure yet. Here is the progress so far:

A mobile for an old friend




So an old friend of mine from waaay back in high school is expecting. Her sister sent me a link to a mobile that she really liked but the colors were wrong. She asked if I could create something similar in the correct colors.

I think it is so darling and I would love to make more. It wasn't really hard to make, just tedious putting it all together and wrapping the yarn around the circle and ring at the top. But overall, I think my friend will be delighted.

Coasters are a fantastic way to spruce up your decor!

This pattern is called Halley's Comet and I found it in my Reader's Digest Ultimate Sourcebook of Knitting and Crochet Stitches. I loved putting together the funky fun colors! Made with cotton yarn.

New necklaces

I love the pink and coral mix of colors for this type of Zinnias! Here is my take on them:




This flower is called a Dianthus.

My Grandma had 10 green thumbs. When I decided to plant my own flower garden years ago, she suggested Dianthus because it was easy to care for. Well I got lucky and where I planted mine, ended up being the perfect place and they grew beautifully and she joked about them looking better than hers! They even came back the next year even though they are not supposed to :)



These red Poppies look better in person than in a photo, cameras generally do not like red and I forgot to reduce the saturation:



Some white Orchids:



Here is a totally different style for me, I wanted to try a Southwestern design. I used fabric glue to glue felt circles on the back of the crocheted circles to give them a little bulk and to keep them from curling up.



And lastly, Fuschia, by challenge from my Mom. These flowers are so cool in their design, it was a big pain to do but it turned out well I think:
