Projects, Finished and Projects, Future

I really have to say something about my family...they are the BEST gift-givers! Really! Rick and the kids--all of them--are incredibly thoughtful and creative. Somehow, they just know!

For instance...


Since my blog is mainly craft related, I thought you might appreciate this basket of future projects from first-daughter and son-in-law...and as one crafter to another, I thought you might know the glee I experienced when I saw it! Yes?

*********************************



This is a recently finished project...it's a teeny little drawstring bag crocheted with sock yarn. I like the way it turned out but not sure what to use it for--maybe a jewelry pouch.


************************************



These are the six finished tags I sent to Karla for her Puppy Love Tag Book Swap.




When she receives all of the tags--from 60 swappers--she's going to mix them up into groups that look cute together, add a tag cover that she's created and tie them together with pretty ribbons, etc. Then, around Valentine's Day, we will receive back a pretty Puppy Love Tag Book! Aawwwhhh, don't you just love puppies? Hey, if you want to see some really cute ones, head over to Karla's blog...you won't be disappointed:)

I don't knit but I do crochet so I understand your glee.

The puppy love tags are adorable, love the color scheme you chose. What a fun swap you are in.
Do show and tell when you get your tag book.
