A little more crochet

Today's work ... or play!

It's going to be a little afghan. Friends of friends are taking a mission trip and would like to take some baby blankets to take with them to give away.

It's a fun collaborative effort, because the yarn was given to me for the project, and I'm enjoying the making, and someone else gets to give it away!

Crocheting today

A lot of my crafting lately has been crocheting. Here's what I'm working on today.

Green strings

In my neverending quest to turn scraps into useful things, I've had some fun making string-blocks out of scraps. 

It's really satisfying to turn a pile of this ...

... into a little something like this! 

Next up, this one will get some borders and become a baby quilt for a friend.

Aqua quilt-y pieces

The beginnings of quilt-making projects are always fun ...
Here are some pieces of the latest!

Progress is happening ... I've got a bunch of string-blocks made for the bigger blocks in this design.
Next up: I need to trim the string-blocks and cut out the white (background) pieces.

More pictures soon!

A long-time finish

This week, I finished crocheting an afghan that's been in progress for several years. It feels good to have it done!

I actually started it about 10 years ago. For some reason, I got about a quarter of the way done and then quit working on it. After putting it away for a few years, I rediscovered it last fall. (I mentioned it here.)

Progress was a little slow ... partly because every row is over 200 stitches long ... and partly because there are almost 200 rows ... and partly because I've had lots of other projects in the works. (Check back soon for pictures of those ones!)

Anyhow ... This one's done!

One of the things I should do more often is write blog posts.

Sometimes, my dilemma is: Do I want nicely-polished, wordy posts occasionally, or do I want simple (Instagram-style) captioned pictures, more frequently?

Actually, there's probably room for both, so, here's my picture for today:

I just rediscovered an afghan I started (5 or 10) years ago. I'm finishing it! It's the perfect fall project!

T-Shirt Yarn

In not-so-quilty news, I'm still occasionally making T-Shirt Yarn.

I usually either crochet with this fun, bulky yarn, or I sell it on eBay

Currently, I've got some T-Shirt Yarn, some Vintage Toys, and some Minecraft-Style Quilts for sale on eBay.
