Twin Treats

These are the first little pieces I have ever made, other than toys for our West Highland White Terrier girls, Betty Boo and Candy Corn. (Yep, they were born on Halloween.) The picture of them below was 8 years ago, they will be NINE years old this year my how the time has flown.

The first blankie, I used this pattern,  

I am most happy with it, and  the second blankie  pattern I used was from the following blog link

I am very pleased with the way my 1st attempts turned out!  The little hats were made from basic Double crochet newborn hat patterns and 3 month pattern that are plentiful on the internet. I also downloaded the sweet little tags from Pinterest 

 I hope my Great Granddaughter's Mackenzie and Kimberly will enjoy them as much as I enjoyed learning and making them...

I am also super excited as My family will be here all together this Easter, I can't wait to see everyone and hold me some babies!

I hope everyone has a wonderful Holiday as well. I know everyone will be sharing photos of funny bunnies and sticky chocolate fingers and deviled eggs for Breakfast Lunch and Dinner, especially if your fortunate to still have a home with little feet shuffling about!
Do you have any special traditions you carry on from your childhood for the Holiday? Join in on the link parties below.

My 1st BIG Project

Is currently a WIP (Work in Progress)...
I had a whole big post planned for today, then blank, nothing, blocked, brain freeze? So, the whole thing wound up a hot mess.  Instead of that, I give you this picture of my C2C (Corner to Corner) in progress. It is my more, than I could ever hoped for in crochet happiness!  See it below, and know these are the moments I love, learning crochet!

The wonderful creative people you are able to learn from, and they give so freely of their time and skills. I must of watched this video 20 times before I felt I could even attempt a single stitch. The video I followed  is C2C Tutorial and Thank you Mikey of The Crochet Crowd for all your fun tips!

I am excited to share my first link party today as well! And linking up here also!
