Sweetheart Collar

Love how this little collar turned out. 
It started out as a necklace but that didn't look turn out like I pictured it so the thought of a collar came to mind and I just kept joining motifs.
For some reason this picture won't turn the right way for me either !!
I love the colors in this and the heart button detail.  It was very easy to make and didn't take too long either.  Also liking the way it will look from the back.

Light & Breezy Scarf

So this is how the scarf motifs I started last Saturday in the truck turned out....
For no more time than I had this week to crochet it worked up really quickly.  Very pretty colors, too !!  Love the thread.  It finished up 47" long and 3 5/8" wide.  I didn't want it really long I thought shorter would be a nice length to dress up a t-shirt.

Halloween in April ?

Finished up my special project for Coats and Clark last night and wanted to give a sneak preview....hope they don't mind.......
The black and the triple knot fringe they suggested sure made a different project out of it !! 
I really like how it turned out. 


Yesterday Willard's were a little short on drivers so they asked if I would take a load to Winchester, VA.
The applicator I hauled to started with his brand new Rogator today.
It sure was a beautiful day.

Since hauling for Rogator work requires more waiting time than driving time I took along some new thread and started on a scarf idea that I had been wanting to try so I spread my work out on the steering wheel and worked out of a plastic bag to keep things clean. 

This new thread is so pretty.  It's Aunt Lydia's size 3 Fashion in Multi-Monet. I love the colors and since it's a little thicker it works up really quickly.  A good mobile project !!
