Today, I went to Michael's and found these precious tins on clearance. I crocheted two scrunchies for my little grand daughter, Abigail. The little tin is to serve as a gift box to hold them. I sure hope she likes the little gift. I made the scrunchies with sock yarn, I find it works best because it stretches with the pony tail band. I found the pattern here!

Thank you for Visiting!

My Summer Project:
 I bought this little treasure from a garage sale for less than $20 two years ago. At the time, I wasn't sure where I wanted to put it in my home. Now that I have the perfect place for it, I am ready to tackle my little treasure and make it into something pretty. Still tossing colors around in my head, but I'm getting there. After all, a job worth doing is a job worth doing well.

And yes, our garage is a mess and will get cleaned this summer as always. Because winters here are so long, I am afraid it doesn't get cleaned as often as I would like. My husband is always working on something or other out there. But, I don't mind cause he is a good 
do- it -yourself-er and that saves us tons of money.
Thank you for Visiting!

On My Hook/Off My Machine:

Hello Everyone,
I have decided to crochet a simple, but elegant pattern: 
A Big Granny Square
This allows my mind time to focus on matters at hand while I crochet. As you can see, I still have a ways to go before I can post the finished project. I really like the color scheme. 
Hope you do too.


Now for what's off my machine. If you remember, I was working on a quilt here. Well, I am finally  able to post the finished project. I don't quilt as often as I would like, because I get so consumed with crocheting. But, it is a good thing when I can get to my sewing machine.

My thought for today: So much, but yet so little.
 So much to do and so little of me to do them.
Thank you for visiting!

TA DA! Wednesday!
I am so excited to post my finished  Sunburst Granny Afghan.  
It was a lengthy, but rewarding project.  I just love all the colors; looks like summer is here. I made this afghan using my
stash/buster yarn.


I would also like to post a picture of an afghan which I finished years ago. Thought that this would be a good time to show it because it also reminds me of summer.
