Home Sweet Home!

 Week 6 in the Crochet challenge was make a scrap project using your yarn stash. 
Well that is easy enough.
I was searching through pintrest and other blogs for something new
when I happened across Alessandra's blog!
 
Oh! My! Goodness!! 
 
I immediately grabbed my hook and some scraps and got started.
I modified her pattern slightly.  But really, it is perfect just as it is.
 
 
For the very first time I did some hand-stitching to add the home, sweet, home...
I need to practice.  A LOT!   
 
 

A little felted heart for the center...
 
 
I added one of Lucy's scrappy birds...and hung it up by the front door.
I am so happy with this little scrap project. 
 
 
 
 
I also have been adding to this crazy, never-ending afghan. 
Scraps from every project I have been working on. 
Sort of like a memory quilt, but a crochet version.
 
 
One square has 31 color changes!!  I am using a size 5 hook and joining as I go.
Trying to weave in the ends before they get too out of hand.
 
 
 
 This is what 31 color-changes looks like from behind!   
62 ends in one square?!  What was I thinking?

  2. Aw isn't it lovely!

    I love scrappy blankets although 62 ends would probably be too much for me to want to deal with. It looks wonderful though

  5. Love your scrap projects :). Weaving in ends is a tiresome end to a project, 62 is a lot in such a small space!

  11. I love the scrappy afghan. I have made a similar one but the little scraps were made into over 400 little squares that were then all joined with a single color: Vanna White's Grandma's Flower Garden.

    I hate sewing in ends with a vengeance, I feel for you - I really do!
