What I made when trying to decide what to make..





Good Afternoon everyone. I hope everybody had a nice weekend. To my followers in Missouri,I hope you are all safe and you got through the storms untouched. Tornadoes are horrific, but even worse during sleeping hours..

Over the weekend I was trying to figure out what I wanted to make. I got to looking at all the "scrap" or leftover thread I have stashed in bins and baskets in my room. I thought that maybe I should try to make some things out of them. I have a great deal of leftovers..I think I gave some to my sister, and mom I think got some odd lot balls..but for the most part I have years of leftovers.

I think the potholder was my favorite..that is the yellow rose one..I think I may make more of these or maybe different flowers on the potholder.. The other ones are small doilies or coasters..

I hope you all have a great week. Thanks for taking the time to read my thoughts.

Wow!! What do you do when you really make up your mind? They are so pretty - definitely don't look like leftovers.

Gosh, you made all of those when you didn't know what to make...amazing! You must be so fast at crocheting. I have been sidetracked in my crocheting...things that come up but nothing to complain about when seeing all the destruction in Missouri. My heart just goes out to them. So, what is on your hook at present? Did the lady pick up the dress?
