Hello friends, and I hope you are all having a lovely day! Rick is out mowing, and I was outside earlier and planted some daylilies. It’s chilly and quite windy out there. But I am not complaining. I’ll take this over 90 degrees and humid any ol’ time!
Thought I’d share a few things with you today. First up are the crochet goodies I’ve been playing around with during the past week. Flowers, mandalas and a hot pad.
First up are the mandalas. The pattern for the first one can be found here. Very easy and works up quickly!
The pattern for this second mandala can be found at this site. It works up quickly as well, and is also easy.
For this next mandala I just played around with my yarn, and didn’t follow a pattern. All of the mandalas I made are using WW cotton yarn so that they may be used as hot pads, if desired.
Next up, I made some flowers. I was having fun playing with all my colorful WW cotton yarns! For the first one, I followed this pattern. I decided it was working up bigger than I’d like, using the WW cotton yarn, so I made a similar flower on my own. I didn’t put on as many petals or rows, and I used a smaller hook. This picture shows the first one on the left, and then my revamped one on the right.
And here are all of the smaller ones posing together.
Last, but not least, I would like to share my Good Will finds with you. I absolutely love the pattern on this set of vintage sheets I found. When I was a little girl (I’m thinking around 9 or so) I had just one pillowcase with this print on it. I *loved* that pillowcase! Imagine how hurt I was one day when I came home from school to find that my mother had given it away! Say it isn’t so!!! But anyhoo, here I am all these years later and I have the whole set…not just the pillowcase. Problem is I am sleeping on a twin size bed, and the sheets are double. They’re not tucking under real well, so I think I’m going to have to figure out something to help them stay on the bed better.
Also at Good Will, I found this unique vase and tin box. I was a happy shopper.
There now, I think I’m all caught up with showing you my goodies. Enjoy the week ahead and blessings to all of you!
