Dainty Butterflies

I love butterflies! So, when a friend of mine let me borrow a butterfly fridgie that she had so that I could try to copy the pattern, I was very excited. I found a pattern for the inside, but made up the one for the green and pink ones. I had a pattern for the red one. Anyway, they would look elegant appliqued to a quilt. The one in the center is flat the other two are 3-d. I need to make some antennas for them and a body.
By the way, the do not open up and lay flat like a granny square.

Fuzzy Green Scarf

I made a fuzzy green scarf!! It is made completely from single crochet stitches. I got the Lion Brand Boucle yarn (it has mohair in it so it is really soft) from the dollar store for a $1! I used two skeins(thats 2 balls in laymans terms :) ) I'm going to make another one as soon as I get some more yarn. It's really fuzzy. It might be neat with some eyelash yarn worked with it as well.

First Post!

All right, first post!

One of my recently completed crochet projects was a cronoline lady! I bought the pattern from Crochet Memories. It was fairly easy to make. I have previously crocheted a valentine lady that had red hearts trimmed in white around the bottom. It was huge (probably a foot across) though, so I tried to make this one smaller. It turned out being about 8.5"x6.75". I like it alot. It would be neat with three of them framed together. It is listed in my etsy store.
