Choosing Colors

After a break from working with the crochet hook, I am back at it again. I was inspired by Lucy at Attic 24 and the color sequences she uses.  Now, mind you, I have limited amount of yarn, so I made the best of what was available.
 It's all about the fun.

Doll Carrier

I often make things I wised I had as a little girl.
This doll carrier is just the right size for a little girls I have yet to meet because she lives across the Atlantic.

Storage boxes for baby

I used a pattern in Anna Maria's book Handmade Beginings to make one of the stackable boxes.  It is so pretty and useful.

Tempe Yarn

 I was in the neighborhood and dropped in.  I had been preparing myself for a little more learning in the realm of crochet and visiting this cool place did the trick.  The very friendly staff answered all my questions and made me feel comfortable.  I decided to sign up for a workshop where I finally learned scalloping and started a project which will be felted later. 


I even met Yumiko, a famous designer of things crocket.

My green yarn will be used for a baby blanket and the red will be a felted small basket. My heart is good. There is nothing better than wanting to learn and having this kind of community resource available.
