Flower Garden Lapghan

We’ve been having Internet troubles lately, so the majority of the time I do not have a connection.  That leaves me more time for crochet.  LOL  I managed to make this lapghan during the last couple of weeks.  The colors aren’t showing nicely in the pics.  It was very overcast when I took the pics the other day.  I ordered a flower loom, online, quite a while ago.  Probably a year or more.  Just recently took the time to figure out how to use it…and this is what I used my flowers on. :)

The shades of green I used were Red Heart’s Paddy Green for the main color, and Red Heart’s Spring Green for the border. The flowers were made using leftover yarn from the afghan I made my grandson last year.

Hats & Pumpkins

Sharing the two projects I’ve been working on recently.  I made a hat for each of my grandkids.  Haven’t delivered them yet, but am hoping they are the right size. The pattern can be purchased here.


Here are the hats shown separately. As you might assume, the one with the flower on it is for my granddaughter.  The other two are for the boys.  LOL




I’m still having my health issues and lately it’s been getting me down.  I’m going to a gastroenterologist, but she is quite full of herself and is not being too terribly helpful. Obviously, I don’t know what the problem is, but I’m lead to believe it could very well be Crohn’s disease.  Whatever it is, it isn’t pleasant, I know that much.  Anyhoo, because of that I’ve been a bit down.  I try to not let myself get that way, but every once in a while I do struggle with it.  To boost my spirits the last couple of days, I made these cute little pumpkins.  Today I took them outside for a photo shoot.  LOL  If you’d like to make some of these for yourself, the pattern can be found here.

The pics are of the same pumpkins…just taken in different settings.



As always, I thank you for visiting my blog.  May you have a wonderful day!  :)
