Crocheted Rug

I had so much fun crocheting this rug. I couldn't believe how fast it went using 4 strands of yarn. I started it Thursday evening and finished it on Tuesday.

New Sugar Nellie Class Coming UP

I have a new Copic Marker Sugar Nellie digital stamps class coming up at Corner Crop. We will be coloring these two beautiful images and making them into cards. The Sugar Nellie stamps look difficult to color because of all the detail, but all that detail just makes them easier to color and so much fun to do.

Copic colors used: R32, R35,  R20, BG10, BG13, BG15, E00, E11, E29, E25, E31, E33,E35, E50, E53.

My First Afghan

Even though I have crocheted for over 45 years, I've never crocheted an afghan before. Too much work! I just started out making a Granny square to teach a class in how to make Granny squares.  Then I thought I would make a doll blanket for my Granddaughter out of the squares. I took them on a 2 week vacation and when I got back I had enough squares to make a full afghan. So the doll blanket for my Granddaughter became an afghan for her.

This was so much fun that I crocheted a rug this week. I'll try and post the picture later.

I love the internet. I get to see pictures of my Granddaughter before I can get down to see her.

I found an awesome site this week and I want to share it with you. It is called My Create, Ink, Color Match. I have put a link to it on the right side of this page.  You can match Copics to Copics for colors that go together. You can also color match your Copic markers to Stampin’ Up or Close to my Heart colors or paper. You chose whether you want to go from paper to Copics or Copics to paper (in upper left of the linked page). To use the Copic to Copics function, select the first button on the right. To select the Copic to paper function, select the second button.You can get some more information about the Color Match here.
