Totally Useless SAL - February, 2010

I found a small glass ornament that I'm supposed to paint on (just haven't had the time to do it) so I decided to use it for this month's totally useless SAL.  Lots of yarn and some floss from the Valentines scissors fob I still haven't finished - ok time to stitch!!!

Haiti by Hand

I am organizing our Embroidery Guild to collect needles, threads, craft supplies, fabric and beads to send to the women of Haiti so that they can continue to make a living.   Check out the link or Haiti by Hand on Facebook.

Watermelons in February

It's snowy outside so why not crochet watermelons!  The two half slices are potholders and the whole slice is a disch cloth - the little scrubbie is my creation.  The patterns are from the booklet Leisure Arts Kitchen Basics in Cotton.  I used Lilly's Sugar 'n Cream .

So Much Snow in February

Two big snowfalls make for beautiful pictures -
