I made a mini big head baby doll using this pattern

So much fun!

You may have noticed I am not updating as frequently as I once was.  Life has gotten busy.  In part, this is due to my father, who has had dementia for a number of years, needing to be admitted into a nursing home.  While I am there visiting, I decided to start working on lapghans that I can then give to some of the other patients who live there.  This is the first such lapghan that I finished.

There was no pattern used for this.  I made this from a granny square until I ran out of yarn.  This was made from three skeins of Caron Simply Soft Ombre in color Stormy Weather.  I used an I (5.5 mm) hook.

If you'd like to donate a lapghan to a lovely patient near my dad, please send me a message.  I know it will be well loved.  :)

Yarn Ball Stress Ball

I love this design.  What a great idea for a stress ball!

I filled it the same way as I did my simple stress ball, with two balloons filled with rice.  The second balloon is used only to keep the rice from spilling.

Simple Stress Ball

I did not use a pattern for this simple stress ball.  I filled it with a balloon filled with rice.  A second balloon is inside to protect from breaks.  It works great!

Photography Resources

While crochet dominates this blog, I intended to use it for all the various arts/crafts/hobbies that I enjoy.  So I wanted to share some good resources on one of those numerous likes of mine, photography!

Visit this site for 50 photography websites that are definitely worth spending some time at.

Spring Doll

I did not use a pattern for this little girl.  I did use some techniques I learned while doing recent patterns.  See if you can spot any of them.
