Crochet, for a change

My nephew Bon (not his real name) is the genius who named the blog. I think it's finally time to show some yarn. And the finished products of yarning.

Last month, I made the budding veterinarian, Shmia (not her real name), a zebra rug for the side of her bed.



This summer I completed a few other projects, including:

1) A table runner for the chest in the living room


2) Chair cushions for Mom's kitchen chairs (I owe her 2 more)

3) A cotton rug for my bathroom


4) A curtain, still a work in progress, for the back porch door. View from the inside:

And from the outside:


That's it for now!


  1. Those are beautiful! My grandmother used to crochet (a mile a minute without ever looking at her hands while she watched her "stories" -- the afternoon soap operas). I have some pieces she made, but she worked mostly in white.

    The zebra is adorable. You're amazing!

  2. Thanks for your kind words, Jeanne. I also try to crochet while watching TV or reading something online but I'm not very good at it. Your mom sounds especially talented. I really enjoy reading your blog! It's both entertaining and informative. Thanks for taking the time to stop by here.

  3. I am actually working on a bit of thread crochet right now, can you believe it? I have some vintage thread potholders that are falling apart and I haven't been able to find patterns, so I am counting stitches and writing the pattern. Thanks for stopping by my blog and entering the Kaffe Fassett fabric giveaway.

  4. wow! What amazing things you have hooked! They are all stunning, but I am particularly smitten with that curtain. Just beautiful.

  5. I am so in love with that gorgeous curtain and am going to ask my mom to make one for me!

  6. Terri this is Amanda from Gypsie {on my mind}... You should go back and take a look at my blog today. :D :D :D :D
    P.S. These are so amazing... you are very talented. Love the zebra rug. I want one!

  7. Thank you all for your kind comments.

  8. That's it for now, you say! I say that's enough for a lifetime! You are so talented and I love that table runner!!
