Triangles! (Crochet Blanket)

For Mother's Day, I made my mother a crochet throw for her sun room. She's decorated it in the colors gray, yellow, and blue. So I made her a throw with white, gray, blue, and yellow yarn. I'm trying to use up my yarn stash, so l ended up using four different yarns in this one blanket. I feel like doing so is breaking a rule! 😁

    Father's Day Fedora Wreath

    One year for Father's Day, I created a "wreath" using a fedora and ties purchased from the Dollar Tree. Originally, I planned to make a wreath using ties to hang on our front door for Father's Day.  So I went to the Dollar Tree in search of some ties, and I found them, but I also found a fedora.  My husband loves fedoras.  He has one, and he calls it his old man hat. So I decided to use the ties to make flowers to decorate the hat, and to hang the hat on the door like a wreath.

    Nautical Antique Rocking Horse

    A few years ago when my daughter was still a toddler, my father gave us an antique rocking horse for her to play with. I knew that eventually I'd like to give it a makeover. Well, I finally got around to it! I figured I should go ahead and repaint it before my son outgrows it. Since his room has a nautical theme (and I love all things nautical!), I decided to paint it to match the theme of his room. So it just happens to be red, white, and blue.

    I really enjoy creating patriotic crafts, and I've created several patriotic outfits for my daughter.

    Happy Memorial Day Weekend! Often during this weekend, we enjoy the long weekend with BBQs, fireworks, and fun times with friends and family. And we also remember those who have served and sacrificed their lives for this country. As a military wife (and Army Brat), I have a great appreciation for those who have served our country. I also have a love for patriotic crafts! So you're going to see lots of Red, White, and Blue this summer!  To kick off the Red, White, and Blue season... I'm sharing the Crochet Rocket Pop Scarf I just finished a couple days ago.

    Crochet Lacy Blooms Baby Blanket

    A couple weeks ago, my mother asked if I had any pink crochet baby blankets already made. Her friend/former coworker is pregnant with her first child, and she wanted to give her a crochet baby blanket as a baby shower gift. I didn't have one already made, so I whipped one up really quick! I have so many crochet pattern books, so I looked through one of my favorites and found a pattern for a lovely baby blanket that would be perfect for a summer baby.
