This blog started with small daily paintings then changed to a more personal sharing of projects, events and photos. Enjoy!

Crocheted Devil Horns

I made these thinking my granddaughter wanted to be a devil, but she changed her mind---so I might wear them!  I found a pattern for the horn on Ravelry by Diana, then made a head band to attach them to.

Crocheted Skulls

I found this crocheted skull pattern on Ravelry by Arolie MarieMad
Making one leads to another...

I used a tiny crochet hook and some crochet thread.

Day of the dead hair clip...

purple hair clip for my granddaughter...


Baby Slippers

His ankles need to thin out a bit and his feet need to grow a little longer, but they do fit, and they stay on!

I ran out of this yarn--so one opening has a lighter purple--I also sewed some black elastic around the back edge of the openings.

Crocheted Slippers

My granddaughter chose pink--these work up fast--and fit her nicely.

 The yarn isn't anything special--some acrylic I had as scrap yarn---this crochet project teeters on the edge of being one of those depressing things you could buy at a church bazaar, but oh well... (I have ambivalent feelings about crocheted items), yet here I am finding some peace and joy in making these.

Already getting a little worn in.

I crocheted myself a pair of slippers--I followed a pattern, but had to change it a lot for the shape of my long foot and to have them stay on my feet.

Now to make another pair for my granddaughter who just about fits in these!!
