Start a new project?

I crochet the above Shawl as part of a CAL. It was fun. The shawl is more pretty than warm.

A trip to Joann's, and a need to buy just one ball of yarn, resulted in these colorful fingerless mitts.

A puppy bed! It is huge, but one of the kids usually ends up laying on it with the puppy.
It is made from a thrifted vintage sheet and 7 recycled bed pillows.
I sewed the 2' x 4' pillow ,and Myra cut open the flat bed pillows, fluffed up their inside, and stuffed the puppy pillow.
I then cut a big square from a faded Chenille blanket (a yard sale find for a dollar). I made the chenille into a fitted cover that can easily be thrown in the wash.

Happy Puppy!

Noah found a Latch hook kit that makes a stick pony. I have never done latch hook before. And I am not doing this one either. Although I may help when it comes time to sew the two halves together. (The eyelashes still need trimming.)

Spinach and Bacon Linguine. Recipe was on the pasta box. yummy!

Lot's o' stuff! The shawl is lovely. The fingerless mitts look gorgeous! My mom used to do a lot of latch-hook-- and even created her own designs (she still has a number of her projects hanging on the walls at her house). I'm afraid I never could get into it, but seeing the kit makes me feel rather nostalgic. :)
