Someone whispered in my ear that it takes a lot of work out of my hands if I just set up a FB group for my Crochet/Knit and Sew Alongs, so they can post/interact with others.
Everyone can share their creations from our monthly CAL/KAL/SAL’s!!!
Make sure you add yourself to my FB group, just click on the link below!!!

Here are the Crochet Along projects for the next 2 months.
“Pimped up storage Jars”
Pattern will be up by the end of the week…sorry I got a little behind 🙂
This is the original picture that goes with the pattern:
And here I made the scarf in about 3 hours of 3 balls of yarn (Red Heart Boutique Midnight & Treasure – Whisper & Spectrum), Medium weight (4) worsted weight yarn on a hook size: US F -3.75mm.
Really easy fun free pattern to remember (just one line).
I went for texture in this scarf. If I wanted more stitch definition I would have probably used a bigger size hook and a solid color (see green scarf).
Yes, one side of the scarf will be straight and the other side will be scalloped…it doesn’t bother me but it might to some of you.
Hope you join with these Crochet Alongs and send me pictures/ or
post your pictures in my Ravelry Group.
I just wanted to drop by and share this beautiful crochet scarf with you.
You will find the free pattern here (Ravelry).
Maybe we can do this as a Crochet Along for February 2013, what do you think?

For those who follow me on Facebook already know that I almost finished my crochet (granny square) CA King size bed cover.
Just a few more rounds to complete it, so it nicely covers the sides of the bed.
It is a huge project that at a certain stage you can only work on the bed or in a big chair.
Constantly turning it around to be able to keep working on it,
but after finishing 4 previous bed covers (same style, different color combo’s) I knew what I was in for…
Blanket is made in Caron One Pound.
Last steps are the finishing rounds, reverse single crochet edge and working in the ends, it will soon be used on our own CA King bed.
Video for single crochet edge:
Puppy Snuggles loves it too 🙂
He has a fetish for blankets since he was 2.5 months young LOL
Almost done… 🙂

I finally made some time in the day to get my nails done (last nail tech flaked on me).
Taking care of myself:

Tonight I found my little stash of fabrics so I can start thinking about combo’s, patterns and work on the photo tutorial.
I even found a 2 yard Christmas panel that I still can use to make a Christmas quilt/wall hanging!!!
But that has to wait a little bit since the mug rug tutorial has to be done first.
Here is a picture of the few fabrics I have left, let me know if you see any combo’s…
I don’t know where I got the Betty Boop Bingo fabric from…????
Did I tell you that mug rugs are perfect fabric stash busters??

BTW did you notice that I have 2 blogs so that it is easier for people to follow:

I have been contacted to hold a sew along here on my blog.
And since I have been looking around to start sewing again without starting on a whole big quilt…
I just want a small project but easy and useful I came up with this.
The idea is to do a sew along with MUG RUGS.
What is a mug rug?
As it says, it’s a “rug” for your mug…like a blown-up coaster.
You can do all kinds of things with sewing/quilting techniques to your mug rug to fancy it up!
Well, it requires probably me writing a tutorial soon to show you how easy it is. Yes, pictures included but I have to go dig up my fabrics and see if I have to go “shop” to be able to make some.
I don’t wanna get in trouble with ownership of certain pictures so you Google “mug rug”
or just click here for examples.

Next thing on my list:
the daylight pic of the Christmas lights CAL
I think it looks great!!! 🙂
* * * * * * * * * * *
I had so much spinning around in my head to share but I am probably too tired cos I can’t think of it now… 🙂
Well if I do I will write another post again soon, sorry
But do let me know if you want me to post about the mug rug tutorial!!!

Today I have planned, in between errands and wife duties (laundry, cleaning etc), to make the “cable” for the Holiday Lights from Jean Herman’s free pattern that you can find on Ravelry and hang them by the entrance of our front door under the covered porch 🙂
It’s so great to see that a lot of you joined this CAL and I am looking forward seeing more pictures showing up in our Ravelry group.
And we have to start looking into our next January 2012 CAL/KAL.
Before I forgot someone asked me if I would consider doing a SAL (Sew Along) too…
I think that’s a great idea so some of you can take a little break in between our CAL/KAL/SAL.
I made an adjustment to the pattern by crocheting the connectors on the lights instead of making them seperately and sewing them on later. I just dislike hand sewing…LOL
12 lights with connectors:
Yesterday I met my knitting/crochet group at Starbucks for our weekly get-together to have this time a secret Santa game. And yes, they stole my presents twice but I got to steal back and ended up with a little Christmas sock (bottom left corner).
Below is a picture of all the Christmas ornaments that were made for the Secret Santa game:
My Secret Santa Christmas Sock ornament:
So this was it for today…I will be diving into finding new patterns for our projects so we can start voting 🙂
Still I hope I am not boring you all with my blog…
