It's been a while since I have posted about my CAL homies and their projects.
Surely, I have missed some and for that I apologize.
Please send me your project photos or links and I would be delighted to include them on the next post.
Here are the latest:
Glenda in the UK crochets while caring for her 90 year old mum.
Her mum taught her to knit and sew as young girl,
but couldn't get to grips with crochet as mum is left-handed and Glenda is right-handed.
Recently, Glenda learned the Tunisian stitch and made this spectacular afghan:
She certainly got a grip in on this now.
Mum will use this blanket in the car to keep her warm.
Glenda and her blind mum also knit square for rescue animals.
Mum knits the squares and Glenda crochets them together and adds a border.
She also noted that all this needlework keeps them out of mischief.
I'm still smiling over that one. :-)
Thank you for sharing your afghan and your story Glenda,
it made my day!
Look at the fun pin cushions from Mavi at
Mavi has a wonderful crafty blog sprinkled with humor.
She claims she is caught in a spider's web of crafts and is not trying to get out.
(I hope I got the translation correct.)
Clicking on the photo will lead you to additional photos of this adorable project.
I'm feeling another stash-buster coming on.
Here are a couple of clever ideas for the granny roses
from Eve at
Roses used as...
A very pretty necklace
A baggage identifier.
How very clever!
It's been a little while but check out these adorable entries from Melissa and Linda:
Melissa made this amazing afghan for her mother.
There are three rows of alternating rose colors and all rose squares alternate with granny squares.
A lucky mom indeed!
Here's Linda's Rockman Afghan!
She even lined the back with fleece.
You Rock Linda!
Kacie made this precious pillow for her daughter Rosemary.
I love the feminine colors.
Kacie does not have a blog to link; however, she wrote to me that the joining method changed her life. haha. I wish I could take credit for it but it's not my invention. It can be found with Google searches.
The pillow was made Caron Simply Soft and the pillow is extra cuddly.
This beautiful cushion is by Jam at the Fairy Dress Blog.
It's so delicate and these colors are so deligthful.
I'm taking in that stitched item in the background with lots of fresh air, too.
The blog is in Japanese.
The granny rose knows no language barriers. :-)
Thank you all for trying out these patterns.
I love seeing what you make!
