Finished this morning!!!

Okay, here is my favorite.  I LOVE sock monkeys, so I HAD to make a coffee cozy for my own ceramic cup.  I smile just looking at it!!

Is that cute or what!!!!! Tee hee, I'm a happy camper!

I've been busy

A girl at work asked me to make a coffee cozy for her.  It's a free pattern on Ravelry.

This was fun to make, and i learned a new stitch!

More toters

I've had more fun making these toters.  Plus, I have used up 2 partial balls of Peaches and Cream!!!
Most of you saw the MU coffee toter, but I added a picture anyway!!

...the rest of the story

Now I know why Little bunny wanted to go to the field of green:

He found a friend, Miss Pinky bunny!

Aren't they a cute couple?

I hope they are on their way to a nice St. Patrick's Day dinner, and not looking for more friends, but one never knows!!!
PS  Miss Pinky can thank Gerry for her inception and "birth".

A little secret...

Little bunny has been helping me keep a secret...
Wait, little bunny, where are you going?

Ah, do you see a field of clover in the background?
Oh, you little trickster!!!!!  You're showing everyone the jelly roll quilt top I just finished!!!
I decided to use up my scraps, instead of investing a LOT of money on a pre-made jelly roll.  It's definitely green!!!  But I LIKE it!!!  It is 47 inches by 65 inches.  Now I have to decide if I want to make it a child's quilt, or cut it up and make a crib size quilt and the rest for a tote bag... HMMMM, I'll have to ponder that one.
Love my Mary Englebrecht!  Thanks to DL, who inspired me to try this.  I'm proud to be a copy cat, since I seem to HAVE to try what you all are doing.  I only burned myself on the iron once!!!

Thank you, Anna Marie, for showing me this beautiful pattern!!!
The KISS Triangular Shawlette is a fun pattern, and pretty easy!!!  I'll be making this again!!

Love the eyelets.  I chose the clustered crocheted bind off.

Keeping up with the girls

I saw these on two of my friend's blogs, and HAD to make them!!!! 
They are tea toters from a wonderful web site,  http://www.simplynotable.com/.  

This site has lots of cool things including knitting, crocheting, cooking, sewing, etc.  Check it out!
Of course, you know me, the coffee addict, I had to tweek the pattern to hold my coffee bags.  This was what I did yesterday, instead of cleaning, cooking, shopping, etc.
Too much fun!!!!!

What is it????

Looks like a deflated football, right?

Gotcha!!!!  It's Silver Lining Hat, a free download from Knitting Daily.  Click on the title of this blog to go to the page.  The hat was designed by Kirsten Hipsky of Valley Yarns.  I was intrigued and HAD to try it.  It starts top down with one color, then switch to the second color.  Thanks to magic loop, it was a breeze to get started (and to finish).  I don't know that I will ever make another one, but it was fun to do.
