Happy Independence Day my American Friends!
I know it has been a while since I have posted - sorry! I had to slow down my creating for a while - I had medical issues and then I was packing to move, then we moved and now we are living in temporary housing waiting for our house to be built since we could not find one that accommodated all of my physical limitations and Ty's. All of my stamping stuff is still packed up at the moment (sniff sniff), I imagine I will unpack the basics soon but I have been doing some crocheting, and I wanted to share my latest two creations.
The blanket was made as part of Fiber Flux's Springy Stripes C2C CAL (for those of you who aren't crocheters - C2C means 'corner to corner blanket', one that is crocheted diagonally, and CAL stands for 'crochet along' where patterns are released in pieces to play along with). I used one skein each of the four Red Heart With Love colors. I made my blanket so that it is a 36 inch square and was happy to finish it for Ty baby before July 4th this year, to help comfort him during the fireworks.
I had yarn left over so I decided to attempt Sarah Zimmerman's Patriotic Popsicle Crochet Cuddle Buddy ragdoll pattern over at Repeat Crafter Me. Here directions were really clear and I was pleasantly surprised to find that I was able to finish the little guy in only 2 days!
Ty is not a destructive pup by any means, but to err on the side of safety I decided to swap out the safety eyes Sarah used for crocheted ones instead (8 sc into a magic ring, easy peasy) and sewed them to the body. Sarah's came out much cuter of course... I will keep trying. I thought Ty could use him as a pillow, but so far, he has not shown much interest.
Hope all of you are having a happy and safe 4th and keeping your furbabies safe and comforted too.
Thank so much for stopping by and for not giving up on me - I will be able to post more regularly once we are unpacked in our new home.

Hurrah! Finally I got a weblog from where I know hhow to
truly take useful information concerning my study and knowledge.
It's actually very complex in this active life to listen news on Television, therefore I simply use
inteenet for that reason, and get the most recent news.
Aw, this was an incredibly nice post. Finding the time and actual effort to make a really good article… but what can I
say… I procrastinate a whole lot and don't manage to
get nearly anything done.
