Baby Shell Blanket

Standard

So I have been working on a baby blanket for Scott to give a co-worker who is having a baby boy. Here is the pattern I used its FREE https://www.thestitchinmommy.com/2013/12/shell-stitch-baby-blanket-free-pattern.html however I used Lion Brand Pound of Love 2 x balls.

 

I increased the size of the blanket by doing 150 + 1 CH and 102 rows plus the trim.  I could have done approximately 8-10 more rows to use up all the yarn (which I wish I had). It took about 20 min per row so about 34 hours plus the trim and measured 50″ x 58″……not bad for doing in front of the TV.

I hope the new parents like it.

Happy Baby Blanket

Standard

A friend of mine became a grandmother ON MY BIRTHDAY so of course I had to make the little guy a gift. I made him this blanket, didn’t take too long to make but it was a great project to keep me busy at night while I watch TV.

I found the free pattern on Mikey’s web site called Crochet Crowd http://thecrochetcrowd.com/crochet-happy-baby-blanket-pattern-tutorial/

It took me about 33 hours of crocheting within a week to make 63 rows but only did one row of edging, I would have preferred to do 59 rows and make 3 rows around the edging.

The ball of yarn was 1263 yards and this is all I had left…not bad.

 

 

Canada Day 150 Years

I decided to made Canada Day cards to commemorate 150 years. I only made 8 so I had to limit who got them so if you didn’t get please don’t be upset….heheheh

I found the various svg on the internet and cut them out on my Silhouette.

Happy Canada Day everyone!

Everyday Hero

Standard

I decided to make some cards today because I really wanted to play with my new stamp set I won a few weeks ago called Everyday Hero. Since I have a few birthdays coming up I decided to make them all the same card therefore letting me also use my new stamping tool called Misti which was very exciting. If you don’t know what a Misti is then check out this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QuqVubvpGNg

I hope the birthday people like them!

Here is the Everyday Hero stamp set from Stampin Up
