YOP5 week 45: Happy Mother's Day!

Oh the things you find........... I was bored a few nights ago, not sure what to make. I looked to the left of the chair I was sitting in and saw a few unfinished projects in a small box. Shark tail I don't have the right yarn for, a bunny hat with no eyes, beach bag that needs handles and a gnome amigurumi. I started this gnome in April of 2014. All he needed was a nose and a mustache and to be stuffed. Took about 15 minutes for all this .  Why did it take me so long to finish this little cutie? Forever a mystery I guess. He is now done and right where he should be, on the shelf with his Amigurumi family. A happy bunch. Must.. make.. more :) Here is the bag I mentioned before...... I plan to cut off the pink and purple. I think the way it was crocheted is why I put it away . I think I didn't have enough stitches, or too many. And the join in the back looks crappy.  Other than finding awesome treasures, I have been hard at work with my temperature blanket. 

YOP5 week 44: 8 weeks left!!!

Ok ok , I'll post this week :-P So we have 8 weeks left of Year of Projects Year 5. Why don't I feel like I accomplished anything . Maybe because the projects are small. Oh well. I have a lot of things crossed off :) Here is a few more little projects I am turning the Fruit coasters by Repeat Crafter Me into a fruity garland for the summer. I started with an apple. And as soon as I make the antenna , this will be a bee hat.  Info about the Lily Pond blanket : I am DONE piecing it together. I just need to put on a boarder. More fun :) 

Meme Monday

Ive actually tore old projects apart for more yarn. 

YOP5 week 42 and 43

First I want to thank everyone for the  birthday wishes.  <3 I spent some time on the Lily Pond. And I am making another version of Snappy Tots Buggy Garden flag. Last year I made the Lady bug. This year I am making the bee.  I finished the Sunflower curtain! I have to share this, Its not every day you see a pig walking around your yard unless you live on or close to a farm. which we do not. This oinker spent about 15 minutes making a mess of the yard looking for I was going to call animal control but he wondered out the same way he came in so I guess he wasn't lost.  To my fellow YOPers, I made a few banners for year 6 and I will post them in the ravelry group in June.  Again, plain but cute. And one last thing... Rest in Paradise sweet Prince :( my video of when doves cry was removed.
