I'm so glad I took this time between the last day of school and our travel to the States next month to just relax. There has been a whole lot of stashbusting going on during my first week of summer vacation. Linda at Linda's Crafty Corner and the host of stashbusting will be proud of my crocheting ways.
Last year I made pastel granny squares and finally joined them all together to make a baby blanket. The only thing left to do is to finish the border.
I have added extensively to my dishcloth collection.
And when I was running low on any one color, I would make stripey dishcloths.
Or just get creative as I did on this Sadu-inspired washcloth.
I've crocheted more doilies than I can even keep track of using my favorite all-time easy stacked shells doily pattern. If you look closely, you can see that I even crocheted teeny tiny butterflies using a pattern from Little Birdie Secrets.
I've made many more gift bags using this pattern from Chalky's World.
One skein of variegated cotton became two jar covers, two doilies and a few flowers using the mini-flower pattern from Little Treasures. And then one of the mini-flowers was used to embellish another gift bag.
I've crocheted lovely little bowls.
And when I didn't have enough yarn to make a red and white bowl, I frogged it back to coaster size.
It's also the perfect place to store my darning needle as I work on weaving in all the ends on all my projects.
A giant granny is in the works, the colors inspired by what's around me.
And last but not least ... a crocheted cover for a rock found on one of my many walks.
It's such a wonderful luxury to have the time to do the things you love.
Wishing you a wonderful weekend.
Happy Summer Solstice!
