I finished this wreath, inspired by Attic 24. She has so many ideas on her website, all free, and oh so colorful. This wreath has a foam base. The idea behind the blue cover is from my daughter, Emily, who loves the color blue. This was fun to make. This next one is a sheep from the Fuzzy Knits book.

Here is another crochet rug I finished. Again, I used scrap cotton yarn (dishcloth cotton) held doubled. Click on the picture to see the bigger version. Each flower is crocheted individually and then, sewed together by hand. That was the easiest way of doing it. I crocheted a border of single crochet in black yarn. This is how each individual flower looked like. You kinda have to match the curves. and sew it on. tah dah!

I have finished a crocheted rectangular rug using left over bits of cotton yarn I used for washcloths and dishcloths. the yarn is held doubled in mismatched colors picked randomly. I crocheted strips of 13 dcs (don't ask why. It just seemed the right count). And I picked a random length of 30 inches long. 4 strips sewn together, then a border of hdcs and this is what I got. I had hubby buy rug backings at Home Depot and we're all set. The backing cost $22 and is quite a huge size. I can probably make about 10 rugs with this sheeting. Next time, I'll show you my flower rug with a pattern.

In all my crocheting life, I've finished only 2 afghans and they were both baby afghans. This month, however, I finished this HERE. She called it Sunburst Granny square. Or this might be a better, more direct link.

The weekend before the Thanksgiving holiday, my family and I went to Disneyland. We stayed at the Disneyland hotel, wanting to see what the hype was all about. It was all hype. Nothing magical about it, well except maybe this:
