    I am currently working on embroidering some dish towels, making personalized aprons for the grandkids and nieces and crocheting a couple of blankets.

    I was talking with my mom the other day about one of her many outside (wild birds) that come around her house well one of them spent weeks trying to make a nest even with help from another bird, She was still unable to get it right (like the middle was missing LOL) so I suggested to my mom she needed a crocheted nest like the Rehab place have for rescue wild birds (eagles/owl/ etc)....I whipped up 4 nest in various sizes to have my mom place around her Eve overhang area where these birds hang maybe they will use them....(Awaiting & up date LOL)..

    This one measures 3 tall (enough to roll down for thickness/sturdiness of the nest) by 5 inches which before the rolling brim area starts.....I used half dc and single on the project....Here is a link to the pattern I used....http://www.bevscountrycottage.com/nest.html

    I forgot to get a better pic but this one will have to do....:O)

    Update: June 3rd,18 gave Mom the nests on Sunday the bird has already started adding things to the fake nest to use it :O) I am very happy to report she preferred the smaller ones I made which were close to a soda can size....

    I have been working on a few preemie blankets to donate & trying out a new blanket pattern...2 thumbs up on the blanket pattern so far :O) It's called Mile A Minute Blanket I watched a You Tube Video boy that was very helpful.....It was a challenge for me to say the least as soon as I find a few minutes to weave then ends in I will take pictures as I just finished all the join rows....
