. . .from the Handiwork Journal

. . . making progress on the scrap crochet blanket.  I have not repeated a color yet.  

. . . finished the rooster towel for Hubby's sister.

. . .started another rooster towel for a house warming gift for another member of Hubby's family.  

. . . made a drawstring bag with fabric I received from Kim's  blog give-away this year.  This will serve as the gift wrap for the house warming gift.

. . . finishing up a crocheted edging for a towel. I just have to sew it to the towel.

. . . finished this knitted dishcloth.

 . . . found this last crocheted towel ring, and sewed a button on, that I also got from the giveaway I won at Fiber and Flea blogspot.

Good Morning Kristina. What wonderful ways to use some of your pretties. Your blanket is beautiful. The first afghan I ever made (12) was a single crochet ripple. I sat down not long ago to start one thinking that it would just come to me.....not! So it will be like learning it all over again! You do beautiful work.

Hi there, I've been a bit absent from my computer lately so I'm doing some catch up. I see you are as busy as ever! Your blanket is beautiful. Love the idea of a fabric bag being gift wrap as well!!(keeping that in mind for christmas prezzies)
Enjoy the rest of your week.

Oh my goodness you have the cutest projects on the go. Love your scrap blanket, I really should do that as I have so much scrap yarn needing to be used. Love the rooster towel, so cute :)

Kristina said...

Kim, I'm having fun with the blanket. In fact, Hubby and our youngest daughter are fighting over who gets it. Ha!

Kristina said...

Emma, the fabric gift bags were on my "to-do" for Christmas this year. Saves so much money on paper, tape and ribbons too.

Kristina said...

Thanks Sandra. So far I continue to find more yarn colors to use, that were from past projects.

They all look wonderful!!
I have wanted to try some needle point, towels would be a great way to get started!
Love the scrap blanket :)

Thanks Sandra M. I have fun making the towels, and make myself new ones about every 3 or 4 years. I just ordered some new patterns to make a set for my 18 year-old's hope chest.
