Cake?!! I want that!

Oh my goodness!  Have you ever seen anything like that?  If you want to make this cake, you can too!  I don't know if I could have the heart to eat it or not.  How about you?

Pillow Cover!

I decided that I needed a comfy pillow that I could use outside.  This is my first pattern! I am excited that it came out as nice as it did.  This cover can be easily removed and washed , when needed.  I just love the little sunflower buttons!  My cover is snug and fits a 12 x 12 pillow form.  It has nice sharp corners.  I like that in a cover!

His 'n Hers!

I hate a sweaty bottle.  The hotter it gets outside, the more the bottles sweat.  Can't have that!  I decided we each needed a cozy to keep our bottles cool and sweat-free!  Gotta love pure cotton for that.  Anyway, I am a little worried here.  School has only been out for 3 days and I am knitting and crocheting like mad.  Oh, and only to think there are 90 more days until school starts.  Lucky me!


I guess it is a sign that I am getting old!  I love oatmeal and it seems like the perfect food to eat before I go to bed.  I hate shuffling the bowl between hands because it is too hot.  I decided that I needed a potholder for my cereal bowl.  Perfect fit and just love the little bow.  Now, no more hot bowls for me!  Jealous???

Schools Out for Summer!

Yeah, schools out for summer!  Oh, this is one of the happiest days of the year!  To celebrate, I knitted a cute little cloth and put my own little stripes in it.  Cute, easy and functional!

USMC Cloth

My Marine loves it!  For those that don't know, the eagle, globe and anchor is the US Marine Corps emblem.  I scaled down a dishcloth pattern and made an oversized coaster cloth for my MAN.  I was hoping to find cotton yarn in olive drab, but no luck!  The color I used was called Jute and it is very nice as well.  It was a quick and easy knit.  Ahh, now to relax a bit.
