The Break is Over!

Hi Friends,

Well, my break from stamping is over. I took a break over the holidays and did a few crochet projects.
Sometimes, to encourage your creativity, you need to do some other type of craft.

Here are a few things I was working on during that time:

Princess Braids with Crown

This was a Princess hat with braids and a crown that I made for my granddaughter for her 4th birthday.  I ended up remaking the crown because the first one didn't fit.  She looked adorable in it!

I got the pattern (free) from a knit/crochet site called Ravelry. It's a great site for inspiration and all types of knit and crochet patterns.

My other project is one that I've worked on for years!

This is a queen size blanket that I've worked on only in the winters here in Minnesota. It took about 5 years, with one year off. The advantage to that is that you can cover up with the blanket as you work on it! hee hee

It's basically my own design. It's very simple. It's a straight double-crochet, changing colors occasionally for the stripe.

Now that the holidays and a winter get-a-way is over, I can get back into the swing of things and post my project a little more often.

I'll be back soon! Until then, stay creative!
