I need Help....Ideas......

Okay so I was down in my craft room thinking on how I really want to have a studio upstairs and found these handles  I bought like forever ago... omg these are great how could I ever forget about these... And then it hit me... I got them on clearance at Jo Ann Fabrics for 97 cents and after I got them home I could not find the perfect pattern or idea for them, so like many things it got forgotten about until just now... Then I was like I know my blogging family can help me they are full of great ideas and creativity.. So here I am begging you all for some ideas...Please Help.....

Recent projects and finds....

I have been away for a short time.. Yes I been quietly sitting and reading all the great blogs I follow.. It's like my daily newspaper for me.. What great things I have seen... Many more things added to my I wanna do list... I have also been researching ETSY and have an account from years ago and thinking if this is something I really want to do again, or do I just enjoy the part of giving little gifts... Still the decision is up in the air not sure.. What do you all think about it.. I think I will have a hard time parting with most my lovelies I make... This morning I had some errands to do, one of them dropping Debbi's square off at the post office I nearly forgot about it until I received her beautiful square a few days back along with some adorable buttons.. Thank you Debbi:)

I went to the craft show with my good friend a few weeks ago and look at what I found.. My hubby is a Lions and Red Wings fan so this was perfect coasters for him..

Also I made this great little doilie for our night stand

And this morning I worked up this cute little soap saver I think I am going to make another one for my moms Christmas basket..
So now it's back to do some more hooking... Take care everyone...

crochet poem

Crochet Headaches

Crochet patterns, Crochet yarn
Crochet hooks and such.

I can hardly wait to create

I love to crochet so much.

Patterns here , patterns there

Patterns patterns every where.

Which one should I do today,

one forwear or one for play.

Trying to decide once more,

should I make one or should I make four.

Why not a fridgie, how 'bout a hat?

Should I make this or should I make that?

Decisions, decisions what do I do?

Make a potholder, or should I make shoes?

Oh but the color, red, white or blue

Someone please help me I'm counting on you.

Sometimes I wonder why I love it so.

I guess it's the challenge

Could be, don't you know.

Using up my Stash:)

As you all have seen in my earlier post I have a lot of yarn.. A NICE BIG STASH. So I keep telling myself you really need to use up this yarn, I think I am having separation anxiety when I think about it. So as I was crocheting up my 6 inch granny square for a swap I'm doing with   and I was thinking why not start another WIP, yes another one to add to my collection, and start making squares up to make a blanket or something.. So here is my start so far. The great thing about making the squares are I feel like I have accomplished something  though I do feel quilty when I see my other WIP under the end table calling out to me for some attention. Oh is the life of a crocheter hahahhah...

Momma's Dusters

Okay so I have been holding out on you.. Yes i admit it... I'm sorry but the best part is that I am sharing with you now.. My mom over the summer crocheted me up some cute little dusters to make house work a little more fun.. Aren't these just adorable she calls the girl Henrietta and the boy Harriett.. How cute.. Not to mention my son loves to do the dusting with them.. They are completely safe to use with pledge and the best part they are machine washable.. I had thought of  trying to copy her pattern and make some of these as gifts for Christmas, as I have a mile long I wanna make list going on in my head. What do you all think about these cute little helpers?
