Summer Creations







Here are some of the things I have been crocheting this summer. The pattern for the market bag is here. It is a printable from Lily Sugar 'n Cream cotton yarn. I used cotton yarn from Wal-Mart for all the kitchen things. The blue/white set has 4 washcloths/dishcloths, 2 square potholders, and 1 round potholder. I made up a simple pattern for the washcloths and square potholders (which are 2 pieces single crocheted together). I just looked through my pattern books and found a round potholder pattern and made 2 and crocheted them together. The rainbow one is a smaller potholder made with some leftover cotton yarn.

The yellow, blue, green, and white hexagons are for a baby afghan I am working on. The yellow/white zig zag is something I made up for a friend for a baby shower.
For the girls I have been making squiggly hair ties. Natasha is beautifully modelling all of them at once :). If you look closely you can see the patriotic red, white, and blue ones I just made :)

The blue/white kitchen set is available for sale, as well as the market bag, and the multi-colored potholder. If you are interested please make an offer. Almost forgot....the blue/white kitchen set also has a matching swiffer cover I made (forgot to take a pic of it, the girls were testing it out for me) :).

You are so very talented. Wonder where you got that from??? Grandma Rose? Your mom? Your dad? Your Aunt Karen? Your Aunt Sandy? There are so many talented people in our family -- no wonder you are so creative. I especially loved the ponytail ties in Natasha's hair. I didn't realize her hair was so long now.

Where on earth do you find the time between, three children, home schooling and all the activities that go along with 3 children and a husband? Besides being so creative you budget your time wisely...I'm very impressed with all the things that you manage to squeeze in during a day.
