Crochet and Knitting Projects

Lately I have a new addiction.  I can't sit still without having something in my hands to work on.  I've crocheted these colorful new pillows for our bed....

I'm learning a new stitch and making this mustard cowl (possibly a Christmas gift)...

I made two new cowls from a washable wool on our trip to Branson this week... (one for me and another possible gift)....

A knitted dish cloth from white, turquoise, and red cotton yarn and some crocheted scrubbies....

and I worked on this granny ripple afghan on our trip to Eureka Springs a few weeks ago....

where we spent the weekend with this fun group of young friends.  Our daughter and son in law were married in Eureka and we all returned to celebrate their anniversary.

I promise I'm still painting.  I should be finishing a large Christmas painting of a local establishment in our home town.  I'll share it soon. 
What projects are you working on?


  1. Your projects are wonderful and so beautifully colorful. I really like the pillow on the left and the cowl in gold is such a pretty pattern.

  2. Love those pillows!! I am painting an armoire right now.

  3. The pillows are awesome Catherine. I'm knitting a lace scarf at the moment, one I started last spring, finally got the bug to work on it and get it finished so I can wear it this winter.


  4. Glad to find your blog, love it! I'm a folk artist too Come visit me. Marlynne Snare

  5. Cathy Thank you praying for my precious grandson! You are such a sweetheart!

    I am loving all your new creations. Those pillows are amazing! Will you share the pattern? Maybe crocheting will take my mind off all the worries that are going on in there.

    Hugs, Dolly
