I've been busy trying to get my afghan squares caught and doing the felted clutch purse from my other group GettingItPegged . This was my first attempt at felting, and I think that I may become addicted to it.  (Will need to go get some more felting wool) The first purse  and little change purse was done with Bernat Felting and the colour was New Iris, the second purse was done with Jaeger Winter Spun Wool that I had found at a thrift shop for next to nothing, the colour of it was Arosa.  For a first attempt at felting I am quite pleased with the results.

I have decided to offer my Little Bow Butterfly Bonnet as a free pattern. You may download it from the Free Patterns link in the side bar. If you make the bonnet I would love to see a picture of it and with your permission showcase it on my blog.

Enjoy and have a great day!

Have started working on my afghan squares again. Have finished the Block 9, now just need to get caught up on the other four blocks that I am behind.

Well, I finally decided to submit a pattern to teach for the Loom Class. I will be teaching my Little Bow Butterfly Bonnet class from September 7 - 13. I am really looking forward to doing this. Hope to see you in class.

I'm having a hard time getting caught up on my Afghan Square classes. I had planned on making a lapghan for my mother for Christmas, but since she passed away in July am having a hard time deciding what to do. My daughter says that I should finish it and keep it for myself. Perhaps that would be the best solution.

On a brighter note, I finished my String of Diamonds Belt for the loom class. This was a really nice project to do, loomed up quick and was easy to do.

Every year at Christmas I buy my grandchildren a special tree ornament that they will have to decorate their own tree when they are out on their own. This year, I have decided to do loomed Christmas bells for them. So far I have made 10 of them. Planning on finding other ornaments to loom also.
