I'm Such a Square

Hi everyone!

I've got some "non hooker" things in the works but until those are ready to hit the blog and astound you (I'm feeling overly confident today apparently), I've got more crochet!

I joined the forums over at Crochetville and they have a group that swaps crocheted squares for "Friendship-ghans". The point being that you get enough squares from other people to create an afghan for yourself while you send out squares to other people for their afghans. And since I don't hook too much for myself to keep, I thought this would be a lot of fun!

Here are some squares I've made so far, all patterns can be found at

Say Cheese!

Hi everyone!

This month turned Zippy 3 months old and I decided to capitalize on that by taking both Toot and Zippy out for a photo shoot. They did very well and virtually no tears were shed in the making of these portraits...

101 Square-A-Thon: Squares 4 and 5

Hi everyone!

I have a couple more squares to show you from my 101 Square-A-Thon. Squares 4 and 5:

This was a pretty easy square to do once I figure out which way to hook the petals.

I was dreading Square 5 because you hook a daffodil and then sew it onto the square. Luckily it was quick and easy...

Not sure how comfortable this square would be on an afghan with that big flower poking up out of it but it's cute anyway.

Have a great day everyone!

101 Square-A-Thon: Squares 2 and 3

Hi everyone!

I wrote in a previous post about finding the book "101 Crochet Squares" and how hard it was to find it. My quest to hook all 101 squares continues and here are squares 2 and 3:

Square 2 was pretty interesting as the flower portion really stands out from the background of the square. A very decorative square but not sure what to do with it now, lol.

Square 3 is very cute with its lil ol' heart. The heart is crocheted separately and then sewed onto the square. 3 down, 98 more squares to go! :D

Toot's Top

Hi everyone!

Toot and I are shaking the horrid humid dust of this town off our feet and heading to the beach next month. It's just for a weekend but you have NO idea how much I'm looking forward to it! Other than a couple of visits to New York to see family, I haven't been anywhere for a vacation since my honeymoon in 2007. So yeah...I'm ready! lol So excited am I that I hooked up a top for Toot to wear while we're away.
