Nothing Fancy . . .

but definitely useful.

This week my project was a knitted dishcloth. My mom got some of these for her birthday from my aunt and since then has asked me to make her some more. I finally got around to finding a pattern and this is what it turned out like. I taught myself to knit like 4 or 5 years ago. I bought a teach yourself to knit kit. I've only ever knitted beanies and booties and the such. I think it turned out pretty good. My mom was very appreciative. I'm sure I will be making more.

Kaden's Baby Blanket

I have been making these types of quilts since I was a Senior in high school - so 10 years now. I'm not sure how many I have made: I've made them for most of my neices and nephews and a few of my friends' kids. My own kids each have one and this one is the one I made for Kaden. He loves to just lay on it and watch the world (Ben and Jacob) run past him. They are pretty simple to make, once you get the hang of it.

Exploding Box

I found this idea online while I was looking for a new simple craft to do. It seriously only took me an hour to make it - including cutting and putting the pics in. It will hold 12 - 20 pictures, its up to you. This one has 20 in it. I had all the supplies on hand - except for the ribbon. It takes 4 sheets of double sided cardstock or scrapbook paper and then whatever embellishments or pics you want to put in it. It is really easy to make.
