Always looking for a new project. Came across a short blurb in our local news paper about lap quilts for an Alzheimer's study -- this is for small lap quilts that go directly to the patient. Please read the particulars here: 
After I finish a prayer shawl, it is on to the lap quilts for this group.
Care to join me?

Taking a Break........

Wednesday, Sept. 22, 2010
OK, so last night I started something new -- but before I went to bed, went back to UFO's and 
finished one more shawl -- this one may be a keeper for me -- it is in black, gray, silver, brown, 
dark brown -- all my colors -- and I need a shawl too, right?  LOL
Will post photo tomorrow -- too dark tonight and this one will photograph better outside I think.

Taking a break from hats and shawls for a bit --- just began a new (to me) pattern - don't know what you would call it, it is a short scarf -- rather like a crocheted "ascot".  Free pattern from JoAnn Fabrics.

Three football games today -- and I was able to do one hat per game LOL.
Had to use my phone camera for photo -- battery out on other camera

Two More Caps

Two more caps finished -- now to find another pattern so I don't get too bored with the same pattern -- though I do love this one and it creates a cap that is very comfortable to wear.  Can have brim down or turn it up -- either way looks nice and is most comfortable.

Two Wonderful Crocheted Caps From Stephanie

The mail brought two
wonderful crocheted caps from California.
Daughter, Steph, has crocheted a couple
beautiful caps to join those that will
soon be going to patients.

Thank you, Steph, it is such fun to
share this with you.


And here (below) is another charity I am considering.  I have lots of small amounts of yarn and could easily do a "patch work" crocheted lap  quilt.  This was in today's newspaper. (click to enlarge)

Getting close to 50,000 .......

Just noticed Tillie's Daughter Blog is getting close to 50,000 "hits".  Each and every time the blog is looked at I feel honored that you would choose to see my works --- so, when the counter hits 50,000 I will have a give-away thank you gift.  Will post how to enter for the draw when the the magic number of 50,000 appears - in the meantime, thank you one and all. Blogging is such fun and I have made many wonderful friends because of it.

Trying out another crochet pattern....

Came across a delightful pattern for a crocheted cap.  Finished it easily in one short afternoon.
Click on above photos to enlarge.
Love the spiral pattern.  Here is the link to the pattern so graciously shared with the designer:

I found this pattern to be such fun to do, started another in purple grape yarn. I may just have to keep this one when it is finished -- how does the poem go?  "When I Grow Old I Think I Shall Wear Purple....."
Just finished the purple cap.  Really like how it turned out.

New Favorite.........

I have added the new site of my favorite musician in the right hand column.
Stephanie's beautiful music has brought me much joy over the years --
Thank you, Steph :-)

Two Shawls and Five Caps

Finished two more prayer shawls and 5 chemo caps.
We are enjoying cooler days and the yarn again feels soft and comforting in my hands.
