Altoid tin 

Here is the inside

 I have 2 more 
spray painted tins

Getting ready for Valentines Day

I've been wanting 
to make
 some of those 
cute little 
pipe cleaner figures

You know 
the ones 
that look like 
vintage Valentines

I though a 
Valentines project 
for my craft class at work 
would be the 
perfect opportunity

They are simple to make

And turn out so cute!!

  I got the images from Pinterest

  Yesterday I picked up some
  pink chenille pipe cleaners

Im thinking 
is right 
the corner 
have some 
bunny images saved

They are so much fun to make!!

I thought I would share some 
fun beanie patterns 
that I came across on 
Ravelry and All Free Crafts

They're quick and easy projects 

This one is called 
Brain Waves and can be found here

Reversible Strands here

 And this one from All Free Crafts 
called Boy's Beanie here

I've made lots of these

It was a nice break from 
making flowers for my blanket!!

Welcome 2013

I do have to admit I don't celebrate 
New Years Eve like I use to

I do love having the day off from work and getting paid while I sit here and crochet!!

I started a blanket just for me

I wanted a blanket that had a 70's kinda flower power feel for my bed

I looked and looked but I couldn't 
find something I liked

So I came up with this

After I completed the first row and went to start on the second row I realized that I had an octagon not a hexagon....ughhhh

Now I have to figure out something 
to fit that little in-between space

I do love how its turning out
It has that 70's flower feel I wanted

Since the last blanket is gone 
she's found another place to sleep
(see that don't bother me look?)

Happy New Year!!

Wishing you
 in 2013
