I made cake



So I wanted to start and finish a blanket this weekend. And I almost did it... but then today I had to go out for more yarn... and I ended up shopping and then made a cake :)

Don't get all excited... it's a simple yellow cake mix with just a touch of my secret spices!!! Then cool whip and sugar/cinnamon strawberries on top!

I wanted to finish this blanket for Amir. I'm calling it "Fall Leaf." It's about 24ins wide and 38ins long.... I'm going to 48ins by 38ins.... here is a sneak peak. But I did the cake instead...I'm not too upset cause it's 72 degrees in Jersey this weekend... so he doesn't really need it. I really want it for when we go apple and pumpkin picking next weekend.

How many projects at once?


I think I'm working on at least 4 projects! 2 for my son, 1 for my bedroom, and 1 for sale! The sale one is a shell pattern! So it's a lot of crocheting and not a lot of progress. But I should be done by next weekend.

The bedroom (picture) one is a long long progress.... but it's a quicker pattern and I'm using a "N" size needle.... holding together 1 strand of WW and 1 strand of Homespun. I'm using about 6 different WW colors.... Redheart. It's about 5 feet long so far and 50 in wide... but i still have the edging to do!!!

A borrowed blog pattern!!!!












Something I did...I peeped it on another blog....

Here's the blog: Gherkin's Bucket: Crochet Swiffer "Shrug" thanks Krysten L.

I did it in about 1 hour.... I wanted to use up my scrap cotton that I had laying around. I have yet to use it.... cleaning days are Thursdays.

The pattern is above in Krysten's blog. Go and try it... I will soon write out some of my own patterns to share with you all. In the mean time try this one out!

Finishing up

Ok I am about to finish another blanket, and I have to say this one is really pretty. The yarn is wonderful.... and I think the receiver will love it. It's for my Mate's friend Patty's daughter. I'll have to update later with a nice picture. The day just started and I really have a lot to do, so I'll have to end this post here.

My Brother


My brother is away overseas again. I think about him everyday. I did get to email him 2 days ago, he was safe a sound at that point. I also spoke to my sister(in law). It's a tough time for us all... and I pray that the other men and women that are overseas are safe!

1st time of everyone



Hello out there!

This is my first post on this new blog I just set up. Well I have to say that I wish I had more than 2 hands!!! I'm excited about my little crocheting blanket business I have going, but MAN am I busy. Which I hope is a good thing. I'm working on 5 blankets at this time.... one is due this Sat. (and I only had one week to complete it). Amir is teething and it's not easy fitting in crocheting time... but I love to do it... so it's not that bad.

Well let me get back to work!!! If I'm typing my hands can't be crocheting!!! I hope to fill this blog with all the interesting things I've been doing.
