Hello Bloggers Fall is in the Air.......

Hello Fellow Bloggers......
I have been working on my "Pouf" our SnC club project for some time now.  We start in February and have till the 1st meeting in November.   I started it and then laid it down till last month wihen I started to work on it a few evenings I used Bernat Blanket in two different colors.   I'm excited to show my SnC crafting group  and I finally finished it just in time.  Its due November 9th meeting.  Well I actually have time.  :)  We all do one and its interesting to see how different they all turn out.  Then we vote for our favorite and that gal gets a Craft Store gift card.....  yippy!

Now I have to write up the pattern for it.

I coordinated the colors to match my living room chair, floor and oak tables and rug and my contrasting Sea Foam wall. Perfect!

I think it looks great what do you think?

I am pleased with how it turned out

I used a Faux Leather blue for the bottom of my "Pouf"
It really worked well as a bottom so it won't get dirty. 

the sides really pop with the brown and teal

This is before I finished stuffing it and sewing on the bottom
I will write up the pattern soon....

I also finished a cute shoulder Cowl scarf 
its really lightweight and I used a really pretty shell buckle in blue pearl to match with a satin ribbon.  I like how it flows and very stretchy, too ..  

Our Red Hat gals Social Butterflies had a "Crazy Wig" party.  I love pink and got this wig for a prize ...  I think i look good in PINK!

I made this SnC Logo with a clip art I bought 
so do not copy this one ladies as it is copyrighted to me...

Fitting for us I believe for when we hit the road 
shopping for yarn... :) 

that's all for now....

Hello Bloggers...

Wow its been a long time since I posted.   I think since FaceBook came out everyone goes over there to post including me ... :(

But I decided to post today a little of my "Snuggles" and "Lap-Snuggles" I have been making for my crafting group's charity..

I love them and even gave a tutorial class to the my craft club on how to make them.

What is a "Snuggle"  well its a blankie for dogs and cats in the shelter's or foster homes waiting to be adopted.   It gives them their own little "Snuggle" with their smell on it so that when they are adopted and leave their foster home it will help them with the stress of the unknown.   They take these "Snuggles" with them.

I made several crocheted, knit, and fabric.  Now I am making a combination fabric/fleece and crochet edging with a batting filling for more comfort.

Here are a few I have made:

This one is all crochet with Hobby Lobby "I Love Cotton" yarn

Hard to see these from my class but these are a few more I have done

This one is what I call a "Lap-Snuggle" it is for the patients at our Nursing home we donate to.  Its one yard of cotton and one yard of fleece with a 5dc fan crochet boarder stitching around the edges.
I love how soft it feels.  Its perfect for the wheel chair bounded patient's as it won't drag on the floor but will still keep them warm.

A kitty "Snuggle" this one has a curled edging

This is laid out to do my newest "Lap-Snuggle"  the granny squares were donated to us 
by a crochet lady I know.  I think it will turn out pretty

Well that's all for today...

Till next time

Happy Stitching and Crafting.....
