catching up...

Over the last 2 weeks I made a few things but couldn't post them because our computer was in the shop...

Here is a little top I crocheted for Curly Girl....


I bought the pattern here and had used it several years ago for another top that she has since outgrown. The pattern stopped several sizes too small but was so easy to enlarge! I'm glad I did it.

I made some crocheted birdies....I got the pattern here. The kids call them 'taco birds.'

I also made an apron for a Bingo game Lori hosted. I made it from a tea towel I'd found a couple years ago. It turned out so cute!

I made Gunter...he was part of June's YOE challenge...we had to take him to a 4th party. I wrote about his naughty behavior here so you may have already heard about him...

I made some bookmarks for a swap. I adore handmade bookmarks....much better than torn up slips of paper! I like the fish thong. I cut up a vintage (I know, don't fuss) playing card to make it. The mushroom has a quote on the back and fits over the top of the page.

I also made some snails for July's YOE. I modified this pattern and really love how they turned out. I'm definitely keeping a few for myself!

What have you made lately?

you busy girl! I like the top for Curly Girl too. and the taco birds are sweet. I have made my snail for YOE. I think its cute. and I crocheted a sunbonnet pot holder, I amazed myself (it came out good and looks just like the pattern). And, I still have the bird baths to do, promise I'm gonna get them done.
