Share It One More Time Link Party and Features #17

                Share It One More Time Party and Features

Hi Everyone. What a week we have had.  We are still have a heat wave with temps in the high 90's and heat indexes of 105 as I know a lot of you are also experiencing.  We have also been busy with out of town guests so not too much has been being done on projects.  Next week Miss A goes to camp so I have gathered all the stuff I need to start a really big project that I am so excited to share with you as soon as it is finished.  So without further ado I am going to turn the party over to Tammy who is hosting this week.
Hi Everyone, Welcome back to another Share It One More Time Party and Features, Thank you for stopping by and sharing all your great ideas.  I cannot believe the Fourth of July is just around the corner and honestly, I just have not had time to decorate or share any ideas or projects for it, but last week Cathy put together a great post  sharing many ideas from last week features to inspire you with some great ideas and projects  for the Fourth of July .

Another Crocheted Afghan

Good morning everyone.  Hope you all are keeping cool during this early summer heat wave we are experiencing. Our pool is still under construction so I am using this time to do a little crocheting. Today I would like to share the afghan I just recently completed.

I usually don't crochet through the summer months but I am on a goal to make several this year for gifts for Christmas.  So I have been taking advantage of these hot afternoons to stay inside and get a little crocheting done and catch up on a movie or two.

This afghan pattern is called Leaping Stripes and Blocks and the free pattern can be gotten here at Moogly.  She has written the pattern so you can make it in any number of sizes from a preemie blanket to a king size blanket and the instructions are quite easy to follow.
I used a Michael's brand yarn called Loops and Threads.  It is 100% acrylic and comes in 14oz skeins.  The colors I used are :
Aran (white) - 2 skeins
Aqua (blue) - 2 skeins
Forest (green) - 2 skeins.
I used a J crochet hook.
These colors remind me of a 70's color scheme but it is the colors that this person has in a favorite chair in their room also.

This is a close up of the pattern - it's done in double crochets and chains - so is quite simple to do.  Once you have done the first 2-3 rows it is just a repeat and goes quite fast.  The border is just 2 rows of single crochet all around.

I love this pattern and the result is quite pretty even if it is 70's colors.  I have already started another one in shades of grey and white - I will be sharing it with you soon.

Simple Summer Vignette


Hi everyone.  Hope your week is going well. We are in the middle of a hot spell - temps in the mid 90's with the heat index in the 100's.  Needless to say this Mama is not spending much time outside until late evening.  So this week I'm bringing you a bit more of the summer tweaking I have been doing enabling me to still be productive but inside. I put together a simple little vignette for the ottoman in our family room.

Patriotic Mantel


Good morning everyone. 
I have finally been able to start putting some summer touches in our decor but with all the activities going on here it's been hard to get much done.  Today I want to share our summer mantel. I decided to do a Patriotic mantel to celebrate all our summer holidays - Memorial Day, Flag Day, 4th of July and even Labor Day.  That way I won't have to worry about changing it again for awhile. And with the goings on around here that's great news.

Summer in the Entryway

Good morning everyone. 
So this week - after all the end of school activities, graduation exercises and parties, and a visit from a special out of town guest -  I decided to do a  bit of tweaking and bring summer into our entryway.  I felt it was time to finally take down all the Spring decor - you know all those cute little rabbits and eggs - time for them to go away till next year.  I didn't do much to change it from Spring to Summer but it does look different. 
This is how it looked for Spring.

Stenciled Wooden Planter

Hello everyone.  
As you know we have been doing a little work outdoors getting things ready for summer and I have shared a few of those things with you over the last few weeks.  Today I would like to share how I recycled an old cedar box I had into a pretty little planter with some paint and stenciling.
