Blooming Pillow Progress & Tea Shawl & More

 Here is my shawl that I made awhile ago. It was suppose to be a pocket shawl, but I decided to add these cool "tea" buttons and make it my tea shawl.. :)

I found this cute little Lady Bug planter at WalMart the other day...

The beginning of my Blooming Flower Pillow

 A time ago I made this book cover in crochet thread. I added my initials and then a little book mark. But it was too big for paperbacks and not big enough for other books, so I added an elastic to the inside flap and Voila now it works on my paperbacks. :)

The "Love" Program and More Crochet Projects

Blogger Love

JJCrochet Blogger Love Program

JJCrochet's Blog is a wonderful blog that started a "love" program to give a little "thank you love" to all of us yarn addicts! :)
She is dedicating it to us bloggers that love to post about our projects and share photos and crochet fun! 
Go on over there and check her out. It is simple and you can earn a free crochet pattern that she sells just for making the pattern and then posting a photo of it!
Here’s how to participate.  It’s pretty simple, but essentially – if you have a crochet website or blog and talk about JJCrochet, you get a free pattern.  So hop on over there and give it a try...I did ....and I can't wait to start on my new crochet project!!!! Go HERE....

I decided to make the tote bag that is on the cover of Crochet Today Nov-Dec issue. I started it for my g-daughter but the holidays were too busy for me so I didn't finish. Then I decided to make it for me and change it to my own design, no surprise huh? I always change patterns to my own. LOL....so I made the granny squares and used a fluffy white and then added faux leather sides and bottom, and made the back solid with a stripe and now I am double stranding a strap and going to line it....So how do you like it so far??? I like the added trim around the front and it stand up by itself with the leather. :) 

The front view

Thid is the back of the tote

the fancy "button" pin I added to the back

The side view I made it faux leather in blue

I have to add feet and then line it,
 I am going to use it for a yarn tote
