Makeover Monday: 4/20



Sometimes I know what I will be making before I start cutting a fabric. Other times, I let the material guide me. Last night was one of those "other times". As I began crocheting the strips from this gorgeous pillowcase, I couldn't bear to lose any of the color in the bottom of a bowl- it HAD to be a trivet. It is a bit smaller than my usual table coaster size, but I do love the way it turned out. You can peek at more pictures HERE if you'd like!

It's a very soggy day here in northern Virginia. I've got my Life Is Good ball cap on, though, and I'm getting ready to do a little thrifting while my daughter is at school. What do you have going on this fine Monday?

I still can't believe you hand crochet everything. Makes my hands tired looking at it!

It's still early here and it's going to be a fantastic day! Warm and clear, hooray! I'm going to set up my craft canopy up on the deck and do all my photo taking out there. I don't know if I can bear being indoors at all today. Spring has been so wet and dreary so far.

I bet my whole garden sprouts today!

I <3 Makeover Monday!

This beautiful trivet reminds me of what Christmas might be like in a tropical location.

We're sharing the same weather, Jennie. I'm staying inside and working on school work. :-)

such great colors! understandable that the fabric didn't want to be the bottom of a bowl. :D
