Baby Bibs 2

Howdy Friends!

I hope you are staying cool.  I know many look forward to summer but not me. Summer is like living in a HOT oven in my town.  Well, I recently created some baby cards, so I'll be sharing those with you today.

I created a boy set and a girl set.  These came together quickly using "Bundle of Joy" from Echo Park.

 (Supplies: brown and green cardstock, bib die- My Favorite Things, Sentiment stamp- Hero Arts, safety pin stamp- Fiskars, die cut machine, pattern paper & stickers- Echo Park Paper Co.)

The panda stamp is actually holding a flower.  So I masked it off using a post it note and stamped the bottle instead.  I added faux stitching using a white pen and some glossy accents on his nose.

Thank you so much for visiting.  

Peace, Health & Happy Crafting,

Crochet Projects

Hi Friends!

I'm on a roll with this blog at the moment, but it will be a short post.  I'm just stopping by to share more yarn projects as I try and keep my hands busy.  I'm grateful for this therapeutic outlet.

These caps were made with Caron Simply yarn and a G hook.  The pattern is from "Crochet Hooks You" youtube channel.

Thank you for stopping by!  

Peace & Health,

Chemo Caps

Hello Friends!

Yes, I'm still around.  Thank you, Lord!  I'm still battling for my health, so there are days when I'm drained and crafting takes too much effort & energy from me.  However, at times I need to keep my hands occupied.  Therefore, I've been doing some knitting and crocheting.  I'm definitely NOT an expert in this area, so I mainly repeat the same design. :)  And I can only knit using a loom. ;)

While I've been off of work and concentrating on my health, I decided to knit caps for children battling cancer.  This is a cause that's near and dear to me.  I knitted 30+ beanies in baby to teen sizes.  Some of the beanies were made using 2 different colors of yarn.  Here is a sample:

(I apologize for the wrinkled background and bad pictures.  Overcast today.)

(Materials: Simply Caron yarn in various colors; round knitting looms, loom hook)

The following chemo caps were crocheted using Simply Caron yarn, and a J hook.  These are adult sizes, and I used a pattern by Sandra Huffines.  I have a friend battling cancer, so I made her some caps, too.

Friends, this is all for today.  Wising you LOTS of health and peace.

Happy Crafting,
