Crochet Countdown

It's nearly only a month away from Christmas and I still haven't made as many gifts as I'd like.  But I did accomplish some smaller projects this week.  

An kids Angry Bird Hat.  

And more work on the ripple, granny square to cover a cushion and Lucy's Triple Layer Flower from Attic 24 tutorial. Really quite easy.  I will have to make some more of these.  And to all you American's out there, Happy Thanksgiving!!  I'm off on Friday whoohoo.
Might see what sales are on for Black Friday or if it's just hype.

Owl Mini Purse

I made this cute mini owl purse this week.  Along with still working on my other ongoing projects. I hope to make a few more of these and other smaller projects and maybe try to sell some so people can give the gift of handmade this year.  There's always something special about receiving a gift that is unique and handmade. 

And the swap I mentioned a few posts ago is under way and I have my partner in the U.S.
I made a coaster and bit larger table cover in festive colours.

And on the home front, the kitties are doing better. Sneezes have gone away but still making them finish out their meds.  Well, that's all for now. Hope to post more on the weekend.

FO - Finished Objects

Remember this project, Messenger Bag?  Well it was made and lined.  I frogged my strap today as I realised I didn't do it right in the first place.  It came out much better.  Attached that, added heart buttons and made the flower.  What am I going to do with it?  Not sure.  Probably add it to my Etsy shop.  Ravelry said I started it in April.  LOL Well at least it's done.

Another one is this pink cowl.  I found it in my project drawer.  Pulled it out and kept crocheting until it was near out of yarn.  And also started making more African Flowers. I forgot how much I like making these. 

What have you made this weekend?

Crocheting the Week Away

Finished my table mat. I wish I had just realised I needed it longer to add to the ends before putting the border on.  Oh well, if it bugs me enough I guess I would frog the borders off.  But it's not likely.  

I've been getting some progress done on my ripple with my sidekick.  It covers over my feet and is up to my shoulders.  Maybe another foot to go.  

More length in on this scarf.  

I also just signed up for this winter's Handmade Gift Exchange.  I enjoyed doing it last year and have kept in contact with my Canadian partner Carissa who makes some great jewellery.  Check out her Etsy shop.

TGIF, it's been a long week.  But, yet another long weekend for me.  Yeah for vacation time.  Monday off. Mom's birthday saturday. Crochet, crochet and more crochet.  
Kitty update, my little guy has recovered quite quick and well from his teeth extractions last week.  The other one sneezing has seemed to get through it, thanks to anti-biotic meds from the other cat.  

Happy Weekend All
