Two more blankets finished !

The patriotic ripple blanket is finished..I did 3 rows of single crochet for the border in the red, white,blue varigated yarn..My African flower finally has all the ends sewn in ..I think it took longer to do that then to actually make the blanket !

Patriotic wreath

I made 2 of these this weekend.One for me, one for my daughter. Its a stiff mesh (decomesh ) that you pin in a foam wreath.
Before pinning the decomesh on I wrapped the foam wreath with ribbon in case any of the wreath would show through.
Using red and white decomesh I cut pieces about 16 " long and pinned them to the styrafoam wreath . I also hot glue over my pins to make sure it holds since this wreath is outside on the door. Then the navy decomesh went on ( just taking sections and pinning ,not cutting each section) I found the stars in the scrapbook section of the store ( they were plain chipboard) and spray painted them white.   Those were then hot glued on .  I use fishing wire to hang the wreath on the door. There are lots of step by step  instructions to make decomesh wreaths on the internet ,if you need help.     linking up to

June calendar

Our June calendar...we went with a picnic theme..

African flower all put together & 2 new starts I saw this african flower project and knew I had to use these colors for a blanket.
Its all put together and has a double border..Only a few of the ends have been sewn in.Seems like there are a million ! LOL !

My 18 year old wants a red white and blue blanket so I am making this ripple for him. Not very far yet ! I saw this pattern yesterday and started it.It might be a gift , still have to decide ! Thanks for looking !
