Teeny, Tiny Blankie

My granddaughter received a Calico Critters house for her birthday.  Gramma Rita thought it would be fun to crochet a little blankie for the bed.  :D

The house.

Round Granny Doily ~ 7

I finished another round granny doily!  Once again, I used Design Seeds to help choose the colors. I am now working on another doily.  I’m using a color combo from Design Seeds, but not doing the granny pattern.  Figured I’d shake things up a bit.  LOL  Thanks for looking, and have a great day!  :)


Dreary, stormy day today, so the lighting for my pics wasn’t too great.

Round Granny Doily ~ 6

Yay me!  I am back in the land of the doily makers…at least for a while!  I do want to make some more things for grandbaby #3, but right now I am having fun doing some round granny doilies.  Finished this one, and have another one in the works that I started last night. I use this pattern to get my doilies started.

This is the Design Seeds color combo which I semi-matched for my colors.  I say “semi-matched” because I know they don’t match exactly…but for me they are close enough.  And this is helping me use my leftover threads, of which I have sooooo much!  LOL


And, here are a few pics of the doily.  :)




As always, thanks for stopping by my crochet blog.  Here’s wishing you a great day!

Thank You, Debi Y!!!

Sails Doily

After finishing the baby afghan, I whipped up this little doily.  Didn’t take long at all, and it looks so cute on the back of my toilet!  LOL  I have lighthouse d├ęcor in the bathroom.

This is a charted doily, and I do not recall where the pattern is from.  If anybody knows, please contact me and I’ll include the info in this post.  Thanks!  :)

Afghan for Grandbaby #3

I finished this afghan last night!  Woohoo!  I have an afghan completed for grandbaby #3 and now I can move on to other projects.  I know a lot of people have several projects going at once, but once I start a project I like to get it finished before heading on to the next one.  Even though I have until December to complete this afghan, I am tickled to have it finished now.  And I love the rich colors in this afghan. :)
ETA: You can find the pattern here.
(Edited yet again.  See the word "here" above?  Just give the word a click and you will be taken to the pattern.  Honest!  LOL)
