I crochet this square for my blanket, I am behind for the last couple of months,  but my son bought me this yarn for mother's day, and i knew i had to make this square with it!

I have also been sewing, I made my son this apron, out of an old long sleeve shirt, that he will not be able to wear in the coming  winter. He likes to do dishes with me, and like myself, he makes a huge mess with the water...

Speaking of my son, we also quilled this week. 
Also,  I have digitally drawn and colored this bear It took about an hour!
I made this dishcloth as a swifter pad  for my swifter that i used on my kitchen floor, that way i can toss in the washer. Uses a dshcloth pattern from Melissa green, that is currently being tested adapted by me to fit the swifter.

Rain, Rain, go away, but until you do.. look at what i made!

Hello to all! Ive been a little busy crafting, some crochet, some sewing..  some new projects, some old projects.
Here is the crochet doily i was working on for my father in law's table: Blue Rose Doily
I worked on that a few hours each day this week.. and enjoyed making it, was soothing and emotional.
now,  a zippered bag with many pockets for my mother to match her Dale Jr. bag i made.
And right off my machine:
all designed and created by me!!  without a pattern! can you believe it? i cant.. lol i so want to keep it..  but i cant, momma is giving to coworker. 
That has been what i have been up to, when i have been able to craft. :)
Despite it raining, I am in the best mood i have been in, in the last 3 weeks.. only time can help the grieving. Thank you for stopping by, I hope to have some more crochetings up, maybe some more sewing,  even some drawing.. we will see. ~hazel~crochetamommy
