Granny Pillow

I started a big granny pillow using a pattern from crochet world. Then I found a pillow in my closet and the two squares I had made fit perfectly. I've only made a couple so far and I really like them. I tend to switch gears mid way through a project but it works for me. I'm starting another stash bag in green this time, I think I'll take it with me this weekend when we go camping. I might not write till I get back so happy fourth, everyone have a good time!

Well I've been busy getting my craft room put back together. A little messy still but I can get around. 
A little corner to sit and crochet while I watch my shows. My book shelf is looking good and I have some space to sit at my desk and dink around on my laptop.
After I finished the market bag I started a stash basket from the Purlbee. I can see I will need to make many more. It worked up pretty quickly and is a nice size. I had also started a bid granny basket. I have two squares so far. I'm hanging at my brother's for the day and I'm going to try to finish it. It's a pattern from the July/August 2011 Crochet Today magazine. My brother made one and it's very cute. I might get a little side tracked though as I first have a need to make a granny basket from Pickles. I'm using homespun so it should be a quick pattern. 
I'm ready for some movie watching, crocheting and relaxing. Good day to all.

On a roll

 I'm working through a few projects now, in between unpacking things and working with my husband. Having fun getting my craft room put back together. I want to find more time to blog, I've missed it. 
I got my market bag finished, I can't say I'd use that pattern again but at least I have another bag. I'm kind of a bag freak.
I spent some time with my daughter, teaching her to make granny squares. these are her first three. She got better with each one. The great thing about Shelby is that she's a quick learner. Once or twice to see how it's done and off she goes! 
 I also started a big granny square bag from a pattern in the new crochet today magazine. I should of used a really thick yarn as I can tell it will be floppy. I'll just stuff it with yarn anyway! I have several other small things I'd like to make, that I have seen on Tangled happy. I think i'll need a few life times to make all the things I want to make! It is a lot if fun collecting patterns though, I love to look at the pictures even if i don't make them all.
Well, I'm off now, hubby will be here shortly and we have  a lot to do this evening. Happy crocheting!

A finished project and another one to go

 I finally got a project finished! I made a pillow from Sarah London's pattern, which was promptly taken from me by my daughter. So I guess I will have to make another! The next one I think I will make with granny  squares. So now I'm working on finishing a market bag. The pattern is from lion brand. I loved this yarn when I saw it, it's red heart stripes. I'm determined to get some of these ufo's out of the way! And last but not least, I got a picture of the puppies playing with some yarn in my daughters extremely messy room. Coarse we are in the process of moving and she had everything she owns all over the floor so she could sort what to keep or toss. Happy vibes for me, I'm enjoying crocheting again and trying to get settled back in my house.
