Chilly Day Pursuits

I will admit to being tired of the cold...and what little rain we have had.

That being said I have not remained idle! I've been doing lots of cooking
(freezer is filling), sewing and crocheting.

For the sewing projects I have chosen aprons - one type has a twill "skirt" with color cotton gusseted pockets (the blue with flag design). The other type is a log cabin pieced apron. Of the two I really enjoy the creativity of the pieced apron.

I've crocheted ditty bags and extenda bags from the Pattern's by Dot website. These are so easy to make and are finished in no time. The "extenda" bags are the ditty bags with an interior flap that comes up if you need more space or is folded like a liner when not needed. This has been a good project for using up little extra yarn balls.

I think I'll tackle the "bling" dog collars shown on the Martha Stewart Living website next.
