I found the instructions to make these cute dolls in a crochet book for beginners. They are made completely out of yarn!
I crochet a hat and scarf for each one. This one has two tassels on the hat and the other two have pompoms!

Crocheted Basket

Welcome to Show and Tell Friday hosted by the talented Kelli. Today I would like to show a crocheted basket I made after finding the adorable pattern for it here. It was really easy and quick to make.

Inside of the basket

I added a crocheted flower to embellish the basket. Now I need to think of something to keep in the basket - any ideas?

Thanks for looking and have a wonderful weekend!

"Cozy Teas"

My latest knitting project is this adorable tea cozy! I got the pattern from the magazine Knit Simple.

This was a pretty easy project - you work 7" in a broken rib stitch (knit 1 purl 1 for one row, then knit 1 purl to end knit 1).

Time to go make a cup of tea and browse through my knitting books to find another project!

Paper Fashion Greeting Cards

I bought some plain cards at a craft store and decorated them with scrapbook paper , beads and paper fashion designs.
They are so fun to make and are great to give to your friends and family on birthdays, Christmas etc.

Bearington Collection

These adorable stuffed animals were given to me many years ago . They are from "The Bearington Collection." "Mollie Mouseskin" has a little pink knitted sweater with a rosebud by her ear ,on the end of her tail and on her sweater.

"Pip Peppermint"also has a knitted sweater with a candy cane on the front and a striped hat. His pants are made of cream coloured velour.

Covered Journals

Spruce up the cover of a notebook/journal by covering in scrapbook paper, fabric or wallpaper. These are fun to make and the ideas are endless! They also make a nice gift.

Fun Filled Monday!

Today I had a lovely time puttering around in a little village outside of the town I live in. It was a beautiful day so I decided to have lunch at a little cafe, and I had a delightful lunch of tea and fresh made scones! After lunch I went to a few antique stores and then went home to have a nice relaxing evening at home! :0)
