New granny square

I decided to start out a new granny square blanket. Since I have been crocheting like crazy these days I thought I would start another one.

Valentines bunting

I saw this cute bunting and I wanted to make one to put across my front bay window. Here is where I got the pattern.

All the yarns I used were these super saver yarns. I did want to make mine to be bigger, so I switched out the 4mm hook that the pattern call for, for the size 11.50mm P hook.

Waiting for the first of the month to hang it up.

Finished soap :)

Here are the pic's!!!

Have a super weekend!!!

Peppermint Rosemary soap

Today I am making a herbal soap. It is scented with peppermint & rosemary essential oils.
I also wanted to make it with a  herbs in it. So I decided to have the bottom layer be the main layer and a smaller layer on top of that with some herbs mixed in. I added some green to the bottom layer and titanium dioxide to the top layer to make it be more white. Then I added some ground peppermint leaves to the top layer and mixed it up. This is what it is looking like so far.

I put all of the green colored soap on the bottom layer. Then started gently adding the peppermint leaf soap on top of that.

I will post a pic later when its ready.

Another crochet bracelet

I have been lovin' making these bracelets. They are easy, and really don't take a lot of beads to make. Here is my latest. Also here is the tutorial I first used to learn how to make them.

This time on the bracelet I added 2 filler strands. All they are, are they same strand of wire, instead of adding beads to them you just crochet a chain all the way across. Here is another tutorial for some more ideas.
