WIP Wednesday

So, here are ALL the things I am working on right now:
The one I am "almost" done working on is
   this one
This is my SOY August Challenge. (Scraps of Yarn)
I have been working on it for 3 weeks
It is a mystery.
So, I don't even know what I am making....
But, based on what I see..... I think it is going to be a pillow.
What do you think?
I will be getting the final clue sometime today.
Joanita over at Creative Crochet Workshop is the brilliant mind behind this Challenge.
This is the first one that I have participated in, but I am loving it....
My next WIP is the Crochet Dollhouse Playbook,
 also from the mind of Joanita at Creative Crochet Workshop
I finally finished the first page, and just completed the 2nd page last night.
This is the dining room with a pocket between the table and chair
I still need to add the sun-rays on the yellow button, and add something to the bottom shelf
I am working on the 3rd page.
Directions for the 4th page are out, and the 5th page is due to come out today.
I am a little behind..... but, I am not losing heart... I am working diligently.....
This weekend I just started ANOTHER project:

This is a corner to corner crocheted baby blanket.
I haven't tried one of these before, but this should be fun.
My nephew is having a baby boy, and I thought this would something nice for the baby.

Sometimes I feel that I start sooooo many things, and do not finish them.  I am hoping that by blogging about it, it will help me to stay on task, and actually finish. 

Christmas is coming, along with ALL 3 of my grandchildren's birthdays in the next few months.  Along with nieces and nephews..... YIKES!!!!  I better get some more projects started!!!!

Crochet-Along Blocks #9 #10 #11

Well, I am quite behind on my blocks for my baby afghan.
(block #17 was just released last week!)
I am participating in the 2015 Afghan Crochet-a-long
This is block #9
I love the colors, but it was a "bear" to do the middle. 

- It was much easier to do.  I enjoyed working up this one.

Block #11.  
Very different than the other blocks.  
After the flower in the middle, this one was a breeze - it was fun!

Here are all 3 of them.  I did not get a pic of all 11 blocks together - I am working on getting them all blocked and the same size.  I really wasn't thinking this whole project together when I started.  I am using different brands and weights of yarn, so the blocks are turning out slightly ( and not so slightly) different sizes.  I laid them all out side by side, and I am going to have to add a few rows to some of the blocks to get them closer to the same size.

I think it will work out.... We'll see...

What's Hap-pinning Wednesday

I thought it would be fun to join this link-up.
So, Here is what I have been up to:
Ok, here is ONE thing that I pinned, and that I have ACTUALLY made:
 mine was smaller, but - I just LOVE it!
(Bandanas were 2 for $1 at Dollar Tree!)

 This is a site that actually tells you how to size a crocheted hat properly!!! That is one of my issues with crocheting... I can't seem to make a hat fit the first time! .... no worries.... now I will!!!

 Don't you just LOVE this dress... now just waiting for a sweet little baby girl to be born into our family (or family of friends)
Update: Just found out one little girl is on the way!!! - I better get busy!

This bag is just so cute! Not a fan of trick or treat - But, I know a sweet little girl that just LOVES bags, and I'm sure she will use it  no matter what time of the year it is!!

 And, of course, to close out with 2 cutie pics of sweet dachshunds!!!

WIP Wednesday

I have been working on this Crochet-A-Long
 It's going to last 4 weeks - and it's a mystery.  It's called the

SOY Challenge - AUGUST 2015 Crochet-a-Long

 Soy stands for "Scraps Of Yarn"  And the whole point of the challenge is to use up all your extra yarn.  And, I really need to do that.
 The squares above were from the 1st week - these 2 swirly ones were my favorite.
 The 2 above are from the second week.  I will need to make 9 of these.

This is the second "project" I have been working on. 
This is also a Crochet-A-Long".  It is a Dollhouse Playbook. Directions for each page are released once a week - and it lasts for 8 weeks.
 I still haven't added the little extras, or secured it to the page.
Hopefully next Wednesday, I will have completely finished this one and page two.

WIP Wednesday

I thought it would be fun to show you my WIP (work in progress) for this last week.
This is a cute little project that is I just started yesterday.  It is for a special little girl in my life. 
This is a CAL - and it is going to take about 8 weeks. By next Wednesday, I should have a better picture for you, and a link to the CAL.
(I want my family to know.... yes, this was used with "stash" yarn!

This picture is little abstract... it is a Christmas present - and I don't want to show the full item- but, it's finished.... 
(1 down, 979 left to go.....hahaha)
This is my WIP that I have in my "back pocket". When I NEED something to work on, I have it ready to go. It has been a WIP for a long time, but I love just picking it up between the other projects. 
This is going to be a pillow to go along with:
The one I'm working on will be bigger, and both sides will look like this.
Here's the blog post for the pillow I already finished.
