Still on the crochet binge!

I am still reading Beautiful Day. More of a summer read, but I enjoy her writing.

A couple of years ago I saw this Cream and Sugar pattern for apple place card holders. As it was right before Thanksgiving I decided it would be fun for the kids and grands to dress up our table a bit.(we are pretty casual) Anyway, I bought yarn and started to crochet one. Sweetie made sport of the idea so I tossed it in the corner. Now that I am on this crochet binge, I decided to revive the project. I restarted the first one since I had no idea what round I was on and I wasn't that far into the project. Hopefully they will turn out as cute as the photograph on the pattern.

Reusable Gift Bags
I finished all four of the gift bags. I love the pooling on the last one! You never know what you are going to get with variegated yarn.

I wanted to make some coasters, so I decided to try granny squares. The larger square is intended for a bottle coaster.

This is my KCCO and Yarn along for this week.

Gift Bagging

I am still hooking away at gift bags! I am trying to make a set for my son and his family. The camo one is a bit smaller, the yarn ran out. But that is ok. Fun, easy, crochet project!

I finally finished my trashy library books. I started on Beautiful Day bye Elin Hildebrand. A story of sisters and a wedding.

Pooling into stripes

Variegated stripes.
I love how the different color ways of the cotton variegated yarn will stripe! I love watching the design emerge.

Red rock in Kanab
Sweetie and I went down to Kanab for a quick weekend getaway. I love the red rock of southern Utah!

Yesterday was election day here in the USA. And the results are in. It is not going to be a good thing. Oh well. I voted, so I can complain all I want.

I am still putting off the languishing sweater. I started another reusable gift bag. Fun, easy crochet. 

My read this week is Inspired by the Beatles an art quilt challenge! I finally got my copy of this book last Thursday. I have a quilt featured in the book, Twist and Shout!

Twist and Shout
What a thrill! The entire collection of the Beatles quilts debuted at the International quilt show in Houston last week!
