Crochet plus FREE

On Mondays there is an hour and a half break between two of my classes. It is torturous. So I requested that my friend Cindy (who is also in the same classes) teach me how to crochet, and she obliged. I seemed to have picked it up pretty fast and made some cute borders on these receiving blankets for my friend Allison whose baby (or babies-we'll find out soon) is/are due in September.

I took Allison her blankets last night and on my way out of her complex I saw a headboard and footboard by the dumpster. I thought heck lets take it. James threw it in the back of the car. Well I guess he didn't throw it back there. Any how. Not sure if I like it. Not sure if I'll keep it. Maybe I'll sell it.
I am always so jealous of bloggers who find amazing things by the dumpster and turn them into wonderful creations for their home. Maybe I should make something out of it. hmmm...

Stay tuned for more posts, coming soon.


  1. Kudos on the crocheting! I tried multiple times and I just couldn't catch on. I can only knit :[ The4 blankets are beautiful though!

  2. Awwww...mamma would be so proud of your crochet skillz!!! Nik would be too. Now teach me!
    And I see good things coming from that headboard. You are too creative to let it have a sad life by the dumpster. =]

  3. Ok so when I was posting that comment above, the special word I had to type in to verify my post was IMEWSIS. Sad...if you say it aloud it sounds like a little kid saying "I'm Useless." Kinda sad :(
    Just sayin.

  4. Those blankets are awesome, Melissa! Promise you'll make one for our next babe? Well, I guess that's years and years down the road. So maybe you'll teach me how to do it, so I can make YOUR babies blankets. ;) Sounds good.

    BTW - I'm counting down.
