GRANNY squares

Trying something NEW :)  I thought I use some of my left over yarn and try making the granny square.  Once I got the hang of it, they seem to be pretty simple to make.  I truly enjoy crocheing it relaxes me and I love the different texture of the yarns.  It have gotten so at ease with the stitching that it doesn't even seem to phase me when I have to take my project apart and start from the beginning (which is very often).  I get into my groove and fall into a pattern and seem to forget that counting is a very important part in crocheting.  Hopefully someday this will end up being a fabulous multicolor blanket.

Halloween Pillow Cover

Halloooooooweeen :)

One of my favorite holidays!  I made this pillow cover with W/B felt.  I added a piece of muslin fabric to the back of the pillow to create an envelope style opening.  It was easier to sew and it wasn't  as bulky when I layered the fabrics.   I love the fact that I didn't have to worry about the felt  fraying (except the piece of muslin) so it was very simple to make.  Measure, Cut, Sew RSO, my kind of project ;)
