A Day at Mary Maxim

One of my favorite places to go is Mary Maxim in Port Huron mi... I just was there a few days ago with my favorite crocheting cuz. It's huge so many craft projects all under one roof and the crocheting books and yarn they have are awsome. I usually walk out of there with two huge bags but trust me with my yarn stash I only bought two rolls of cotton yarn so I could make some more crocheted dish clothes. I also bought this new crochet book called Unexpected Crochet for the Home by Lena Maikon. It has a really neat idea in it for making a rug by crocheting over looks like a easy great pattern. And I bought some charms to crochet some bracelets. Just as soon as I get these done I will post pics not sure how long this will take lol. So many projects started just need to get them wrapped up now. I would love to see all your projects I need some inspiration so pls pls share with me. Happy crocheting all u hookers.

Sponge Bob pillow

Awhile ago I made this Sponge Bob pillow for my littlest son and as soon as my sister in law seen it she had to have one was a big hit...I love just sitting and crocheting things up, I love the smile it puts on ppl faces when they receive it. Now the pillow for my son is forever sleeping with him... Today I'm working on a tote from a free pattern my mom sent me. It's like a beach tote it doesn't call for lining but I think I'm gonna line it. My mother also gave me a great idea for the lining,she said to use a pillow case. It should work perfect. The handles will be rope and in using earth tone cotton yarn. I will have to post pics as soon as I get it done....thanks mom for the great idea:).
