Monday Making

It's time for a Monday Making party.
Time to link up and share with this quilty community
what YOU're making this week!!!

I'm happy to share I have a FINISH!

A simple crochet baby blanket 
using some random balls of yarn.
All it took was a single crochet stitch and then a double crochet.

Towards the end I ran out of the blue
so I had to substitute another shade.
I am so happy with the way this turned out!

I'm a quilter at heart
and LOVE using lots of color in my yarn projects!

Making those ONE color projects...which I do...
are not QUITE as much FUN!!!

This week I really want to GET GOING
on my table toppers project!!!

I'm making table toppers for an upcoming retreat.
They are auctioned off at the end of the weekend.
It's a GREAT way to decorate the tables
AND earn some money for the retreat!

My goal is 12
and I have 6 so far!!!

This orphan block just might be the start of the next one!!

What are YOU making this week???


  1. What a great idea for a fund raiser at a retreat! Thank you for sharing! I do not have the patience for crocheting or knitting so kudos to your blue finish! :)

  2. That blanket is so pretty. I always love seeing what you do with the cute quilt blocks.

  3. Oh! That baby afghan looks so peaceful! Any baby would be lucky to cuddle up in that one! Great idea about your table topper fundraiser and your orphan block table topper!

  4. Love the colors in your baby afghan, very pretty. Good luck with your table runners, what a cool way to move some stash out of the sewing room.

  5. Your baby afghan is wonderful. How many stitches do you cast on for the first row?
    BTW. I Love these "Monday Making" link-ups.

  6. Your afghan looks great. I like the multicolored stripes. Are you making this for family or do you donate your afghans to some charity? I knit but I'm not much of a crocheter.
