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.
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.
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!

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
This weekend I went to a Stampin Up event in Burlington called www.stamparama.com and I had a great time. I met some great woman and won some great door prizes. In fact I think I won enough stuff to cover the ticket which means I will be go to their next event on October 21, 2017, maybe you can join me!
Here are the cards we made.
On Saturday I took a class called Stamp Camp in Markham. It was my first time going and I had lots of fun. We made 10 cards and lunch was included. The next Stamp camp is Saturday Sept 23, 2017 if you’re interested in joining us.
Aiden turns 3 today and I made him his own Batman cape. Apparently he loves it so much he won’t take it off to visit with family, which of course makes me SOOOOOOO happy.
Here is where I got the pattern from:
