Since I finished my nephews snoodie and I ran out of yarn to continue my daughters afghan, so I went looking for small projects to do. I saw that I had some soft blue yarn and started to make a granny square and kept going until I ran out. I then used a darker blue to border it.
I’ve been working on this afghan for my daughter. It was supposed to be to help her anxiety with our move. Our move was this past September and I kept talking with her and a few things I said to her and her new school helped her get over her anxiety, this time.
But Im still working on the afghan and now her kitty 🐱 decided that my lap was the nap spot to be right now. 😉
The first stages of making plarn, yes I did say plarn….yarn made from other medias. I will be helping the homeless with this. I would love any help from anyone if you’d like to help out.
Im going to be crocheting mats for the homeless. If you would like to make some and give them out where you are, that is awesome!! If you want to donate grocery bags to me, or whatever you can think of, that is Awesome!!
My nephews snoodie is on hold… I played yarn 🐓 chicken. I was able to finish the body but I didn’t have enough to close the hood or make ears. I had to order more red yarn. I will get it in time to finish before next weekend. We are going back to Houston to visit again and I will be able to give it to him then.
Awhile ago I received an email from Red Heart and it had what I thought was an interesting topic. It was about yarning, yes that’s right I said yarning. It defined it, which I thought was cool and true. So here it is.
Yarning (verb): the act of creating something out of yarn while passing the time. Your creations are often filled with personal expression and memories either for yourself or for others. For example, “I was yarning on my road trip this past weekend and made these fun, fingerless gloves.”
You could be yarning in the car, while waiting in line, watching a football game, or binge watching your favorite show. Every creation tells the story of what you are doing while yarning.
Example of me yarning on the road; hubby driving and me talking to him as we go.
I yarn and multitask alot, mostly watching tv, if hubby is with we are binging on Netflix or Hulu!
What do you do while you are yarning?
Enjoying my new ‘toys’ today!! Hubby told me to treat myself to these when I eyed these on Amazon.com. Just love my hubby and he loves me!! 😉
Finished my nieces pink bear 🐻 snoodie and my sweet mother-in-law modeled, since my niece crashed out and had to home before I could finish.
Hoping everyone has a wonderful and happy new year!! I need to have a better year!
We are in Houston again this weekend visiting family and my sweet darling husband as always keeping me on my toes. Yet again he surprised me. He said we were going to a hobby shop for stuff he wanted to go look at…ok sure. We end up driving up to a store called Twisted Yarns. It was pricey but it had what I would call exotic yarn and it all was very nice. I bought the above to make atleast one if not two cowls.
After seeing the Panda 🐼 snoodie I made for my brother-in-law’s girlfriend for a gift for Christmas, she asked for one. She asked for a wolf 🐺 in the colors of the mascot for her high school. She loves it.
I will be making a pink 🐻 bear for my niece soon, since she needs a new hat and she loves pink. Will post a pic when done…
Got lots of projects to come….already planning for next Christmas for my brother-in-laws and hubby…..and maybe even my kids. 😜. Gonna be hard to keep under wraps from my own family! Luckily I work from home!
With all the different food items, it’s only natural to have a smelly fridge, right? Well, not anymore! These easy to make fridge refreshers are a simple, natural way to deodorize your refrigerator. Just place one refresher in your fridge each month for a fresh and clean scent every time you open up your fridge.
2 ½ cups baking soda
½–1 cup water
15 drops Purify
1 Combine baking soda, ½ cup water, and essential oils into bowl.
2 Stir together.
3 Note: If needed, add more water until thick paste forms. The mixture should resemble damp sand.
4 Divide mixture equally into silicone mold.
5 Allow it to rest 2–3 days or until mixture hardens.
6 Once hard, place in refrigerator to help eliminate unpleasant odors. Store additional fridge refreshers in an airtight container until ready to use. One disk will last up to a month in your fridge.
Tip: Place under sink, in the shoe closet, or behind the toilet for additional freshness.
