Last post of April

I can't believe it's the last day of April already. I'm sorry I don't have any pics to post today. I did finish something but I have just blocked it and I am scared to move it until it is dry....LOL

What I am going to do on the last day of every month is list total of everything that I have crocheted over the month and then a final total. I do keep a list every month in a notebook anyways.

6" - 10
8" - 45 + 13 FARA and 13 Jessica squares with the Travelling Hook III
12" - 2

SNUGGLES (April Charity Blitz-Crochetville)

10 blankets
10 matching hats

TOYZ (April charity - charitybandits)





Hats - 4
Scarves - 2

1 - Star of Hope - red

So let's see now....that's 224 items if my math is correct.

Time to start crocheting for May.

Shopping and crochet

This is the new addition to the family. Her name is Smokie and she is just the gentlest bunny.

Bugz seems to be a little too much at home here.

I found this sign when I was shopping last night and I just couldn't resist....LOL

These are some of the items I have made for Casting off the Cold. We have a meeting on Sunday.

Swap goodies, baby blankets and gardens

This is the package that I received from the Au Naturale Yarn swap at Crochetville. I love the Alpaca. It is just so soft. I can't wait to have a bath to try out the bath thingys.
Oh, the cat's hind feet were not is almost impossible to take a pic of anything without some part of an animal in it in this house....LOL

This is the start of Blanket #9 for Blankets for Babies.

These are pics of my front garden so far.

Of course, you have to have the mandatory cat (or two) in the window...LOL

The final Travelling Hook III squares

Here are the final two squares for the Travelling Hook III. I have quite enjoyed working with this hook as I know many others will.

I purchased this beautiful bamboo on Ebay.
  1. Sapphire
  2. Summer Beach
  3. Blues Hues
  4. Baby Clouds
Aren't the colours gorgeous? It was mailed out to me on Monday and I received it today....woohoo!!!!

I think I will make scarves for abuse victims out of this...or not. Not quite sure yet....I will have to think about it some more.

Here is Blanket #7 for Blankets for Babies with the matching hat. So cute!!

These squares will turn into Blanket #8. Hopefully tomorrow.

I didn't get any squares done today with the Travelling Hook III. I did get a lot of yard work done though. Which is good because the property really needs some TLC.

More squares

Silly kitten.

Two squares for FARA with the Travelling Hook III.

Close up of my secret project. And now of course I have run out of thread and can't find it I have had to order it from Ebay and now have to wait for it to arrive in the mail. And with my mail service, who knows when it will arrive....LOL
Ah well....I haven't worked with thread in a while...I may start another thread project just to break the monotony of squares

Until later.....happy hooking!
