Rhonda's Bubby and Other Stuff ...

Well this morning I finished "Bubby" for my new grandson. Going to visit the little guy for the first time and of course I must bring something with me that I knit myself. Stacy was right ... Bubby was easy and quick to knit up. Here he is ready to met Troy. I think his nose is a little big, but Troy won't notice that I'm sure. I still think he's cute!


I'm also including some other projects here that I've finished recently for myself ... in between the Christmas gifts I'm making that is. First a "pincushon or doodad holder" Came out rather nice so I made two for gifts and another even larger one for myself [I have a LOT of doodads!]


The 3rd picture is of the present Tapestry Crochet project that I'm working on for a Christmas gift for my husband's daughter in Maryland. It's a pillow case for a throw pillow to put in her new blue & white bedroom. The yarn I'm using is the Valley Cotton I purchased from WEBS. I'm really happy with the quality!

I've had so much fun with the tapestry crochet, I've also made my own apple design for a "toaster" cushion on my kitchen counter. It didn't come out too bad for my first time, if I must say so myself. I think I'll make one for under the coffee maker also. The reason I made the cushion was so that I could easily just pull out the appliance when it comes time to use it and it won't be under my paper towel rack or the cabinet.

    I think Rhonda secretly knits and crochets at work, with her hands under her desk. There is no other explanation for the continual parade of FO's!!!

    In other thoughts, has anyone else seen this site that collects hand-knit teddy bears for children in need? I was thinking I might try to whip out a Bubby for them...

    Now Danielle, my boss might be reading this ... I just don't have TIME to stitch at work!! Uh-hm

    But I HAVE given up HOUSEWORK, much to my DH's dismay I might add. Hehe.
