A few finished projects

The spicy spiral table runner for my sister's birthday. Hope she likes the colors.

 This  strange little scarf  is call the DanDoh Scarf (Warm Earth). It is easy to make - you cast on 200 stitches. Tempe Yarn and Fiber will collect these and send them to survivors of the earthquake and tsunami in Japan. Japanese people feel handmade items are very valued and special. Check out the story by the designer http://dandoh.blogspot.com/

 Finally I completed my afghan/throw with this fuzzy, fluffy yarn. My friend Jo Anna gave me a bundle of this yarn. I hated knitting with it. But I found that using a HUGE crochet hook made it behave. The yarn compliments the quilted coverlet on my bed. It is as light as air. I used  a single crochet stitch back and forth which allowed a lot of TV watching.

A little door hanger for Cupcake who is my Goddaughter's roommate at LMU.
Ah, the fun project. These are passport covers. I made them for all the girls!  You can easily see which one is Janna's.  (That springer  fabric came from my friend Lynn,  who is Jazmine's momma!)  Janna had a fit....really it is too perfect having a springer on the beach!

Well, if your sister doesn't like the runner, it's in my colors. I'm just sayin'. Gorgeous, as always!
