a couple days late....

Sorry for the delay. Between dealing with work and snow, things have been a little weird around here. (Okay, a little weirder than usual). My rosebushes as well as my bulbs have about 28 inches of snow on them. And we're expecting more tonight. I'm beginning to wonder if my daffodils will make it.

Hopefully, my daffodils will make it. But this is the only way I'm going to see any daffodils any time soon

Here's another cat for you

I just bought some Bernat in the soft yellow and I think it would perfect to this
baby duck crochet pattern. I could add some yellow fun fur to it, but I'm not so sure that would be good for a baby. The fun fur seems to shed.

I seem to have toys on the brain - luckily here's a few more free patterns - a turtle

And a frog toy

and a snake

And something cute but a little different, a stuffed star

If you're on the east coast, you probably have need of a few more hats to keep yourself (or your loved ones) warm during this bout of "February Fury" as the Weather Channel is calling it so here's http://www.crochetme.com/Crochet-Hat-Patterns/ from CrochetMe

And you might need some mittens to go along with that hat. Bev's Country Cottage always has wonderful patterns- here's one for baby mittens
and a pattern for a larger size

Here's a peaked hat with ear flaps

I found this pattern absolutely fascinating and want to try it out...
a chain maile scarf

Here's an "autumn tunic" but there's no reason why you couldn't change the colors for a "winter tunic" or a "spring tunic"

Dogs have to be walked - even in the winter and the snow - and they can get cold. So here's a dog sweater pattern for you.

This is an amazing looking scarf/belt

Or how about this pattern for crochet mittens and a hat from Bernat?

If you missed the "Blessed Mother Prayer Shawl" from "Annie's Favorite Crochet" (December 2006), here's a chance for you to get the pattern. It is a wonderful work of art.

And how about a cute rainbow applique?

If you need a cute decoration for a baby shower gift, here's a quick crochet mittens gift topper

Here's a few quick ideas for Valentine's Day

Jewelry bag number 1

Jewelry bag number 2

and of course, some hearts.....

Here's crochet hearts ornaments

This pattern says "Christmas" but you could do it for Valentine's Day

Again, this says "Christmas" but it could be done for Valentine's day

A treat from The Royal Sisters, Grandma's hearts

Here's a quick one - a crochet heart bookmark

And that's all I have for today. I'm still working on my groundhog, I'm still working on the body part, about half finished. As usual, I get no gratuities from mentioning these sites. I'd accept them, but nobody's offering;)
Enjoy and I hope you keep warm
