Tuesday Tallies...better late than never!

I ended up having to miss last week's Tuesday Tallies and am late this week. With my Halloween party to prepare for and my elf work, I have not been able to keep up with myself. I am a perfectionist and worked many hours to make sure things were all just right. But now November is almost upon us and I am hoping for some time to work on a couple of big projects for our home.


In the meantime, I did keep making snowflakes. I guess you could say there were snow flurries whirling a little around our house. I have a stack of 9 snowflakes awaiting their red edging and 18 sewn together so far. I have started making one and sewing it on instead of allowing them to simply stack up. I am really loving this and have decided that I will make it as big as my yarn stash will allow. I bought 2 10-packs of each color at Aldi's when they were on sale so I should be able to make a nice big blanket with this. Wonder if it will be big enough for my bed???


I mentioned back in September when we were staying for a week up at Cranberry Cottage that I was making leaves out the leftover yarn from this throw. I made 15 of them but then I came home and they just sat. I finally made a chain for them to hang.


This is not a great place for the garland but I do not have a mantle. I want to hang them on little hooks by my entrance to the kitchen but have not yet begged Jos to put some hooks up for me. *grins*


For more inspiring projects, go to Carole's blog and see the One a Day Project links.

  2. Hi Heidi, I love the snowflake blanket, I'm going to start a cushion for a Christmas present using them, thanks for the inspiration. The garland is fab, in answer to your question, I'm hoping to sell the strawberry baby shoes at a craft fair on Saturday. Have a good week, btw, love the new cross stitch header. Deb x

  6. Love the garland, what a nice idea!
    I pinned the snowflake blanket, it's certainly one for the future!
    I always find crochet demands a lot of yarn, more than I hope for...
