Blanket, kitty and Donation Day

This little blanket turned out really cute.

My kittens constantly make me laugh. Here is Rascal. "Help! I need a bigger bed. This one shrunk!"

Here are some pics from Casting off the Cold's Donation Day on November 1st. We donated more than 1500 items to various charities such as the Pregnancy Centre, Pathways of York Region, Yellow Brick House, etc.

Been a long time

I have been a bad blogger again.
I have been crocheting some but not a lot. Have a few hat/scarf sets done. I have to put a few more squares on a blanket I am working on for Casting off the Cold. Our big donation day is coming up at the beginning of November so I really need to stop cleaning the house, doing laundry etc and get cracking on some crocheting....LOL

This weekend I spent most of the weekend making tomato butter...a family recipe that apparently we had all run out of. I don't think it was my turn again but hey...I made it.

I was let go from my job about three weeks ago since my job had been "eliminated" due to "restructuring". I started working at Forsythe Family Farms on a seasonal basis. I need to find a full time job really soon that has benefits as mine ran out on September 17th.

That's it for now I guess. I will post some pics soon.

New baby blanket

So I was cleaning out my hope chest over the weekend and came across a bearghan that I had started ages ago and never finished. I didn't finish it because when I put the head on, it looked very much like a pig, not a bear.
So yesterday, I took it apart, threw the head out....LOL and put the remaining squares together this way and put an edge on it.

Another view....same blanket.

This is a preemie blanket I made from lots of little squares. I made a hat from each colour since I have no idea whether this will go to a little girl or a little boy.

Preemie blanket with matching hat.

The Matching hat.

This was in a bag of yarn that my friend Tina gave to me. I think it would be a nice shawl.

This is a blanket made with fleece squares that I Edgerydoo'd.

These items will be handed in to Casting off the Cold tomorrow at the monthly Markham meeting. I have missed the past few so these are items that I have made over the past few months.
