It's a Crochet Thing….

Hi friends!  

Well, I said I'd be back with some crochet stuff I've been working on, 

I just didn't think it would take me so long. 


So, I found this cute coaster pattern on line that uses "jute" 

and yarn.




They were easy to make, and the yarn adds so much to them, 

don't you think?  

Look at the back, I think even the back looks interesting! 

Click HERE for the link if you want to make these. 




I've been working on this afghan for a while now. 

I love it because the squares have been pretty 

easy to make even while watching TV. 




The colors remind me of the blue hydrangeas I love so much! 




Finally, I've been going nuts about adding crocheted edgings on things. 

I made a couple of tea towels for gifts, and I'm still 

working on more of these. 

Don't you just love ticking fabric? 



Well, there ya have it!  

Guess I'm still crazy about crochet this year!  

What are you up to?

The little coasters really are great to use. I have a couple that a friend made me years ago that I still use. And I love the crochet edging you're doing...would look great on anything. The ticking is fun! Enjoy your week my friend! And thanks for the link...I'm off to see if I can make a coaster!

LOVE, love, love your blue afghan in progress, Becca! Those are my colors too! ;o) Isn't there sometimes so satisfying about crocheting up some squares or circles every evening, and then put 'em all together--and you've got a great cozy thing? Those ticking tea towels with edging are so lovely--what a sweet old fashioned charm they have. Looks like you've got some creative beauties under your belt already this year. Happy creative days, my friend ((HUGS)) P.S. LOVE your new banner here too. :o)

You sure got it going on when it comes to the needle and your yarn. Wonderful creations! I am up to my ears in painting and I want to bind more journals/sketchbooks this year but so far only have the boards and spines cut and I want this to be the year of using what I already have...use up those supplies once and for all.

Those coasters are adorable Becca. You are right, even the reverse side has lots of interest....Afghan is yummy and does remind me of those blue's in my front yard....Crochet is not in my heart but I love to watch your magic fingers....xox

love those edgings and of course the ticking too.
the coasters are great-i bet the jute makes a great coaster fiber!

Lisa Gordon said...

Those coaster are wonderful, Becca, but I'm wondering how tough it was to work with the jute.

I just love the colors you chose for your afghan. Gorgeous blues!

You are amazing, Becca, and these coaster look fantastic! It's always so interesting to see what you're up to, and seeing your wonderful projects makes me want to pick up crochet, too!

That's going to be a very pretty afghan, Becca! We are back home and the decorations are finally put away. It feels good to be back online as we just picked up our computer yesterday. Happy New Year!
