Cute crafty finishes…

I had a busy weekend with a couple of cookouts and the girls spending lots of time in the pool, but I still made time for doing a couple of crafty things! My Playfood Project is moving along, with two new finishes! I crocheted some adorable little apple slices and made a slice of toast out of my new Little Chef Plastic Canvas book I bought from Annie’s Attic. (I can’t even go onto that site to link here without finding something to add to my wish list!) I am in love with that book! I managed to get pictures before they disappeared into the toy jungle, never to be seen again!

Yum!  A couple of apple slices.

I received a gift card for my birthday and since I am on a big yarn diet, I stayed strong and did not purchase yarn. I purchased a couple of cross stitch kits from Herrshner’s instead. Even with Geek Noosphere in full swing and me needing to finish up my scoring projects for that, I couldn’t resist starting on one of these gems!

I love this sweet little flower!

I hope you all enjoy my finished projects as much as I do!

Have a happy, hectic, handmade day!

Apple-ish Playfood…

Well, one of my goals for 2014 is to make my girls a set of play food. I have an awesome book called <a href="Tasty Crochet: A Pantry Full of Patterns for 33 Tasty Treats“> with a ton of fun food patterns. I plan to make them a couple of everything, and started with the apple. Now, my apple came out a lot more rounded than I would have liked and no amount of squishing that filling was putting it in the proper shape. Upon reviewing the directions, I found what I had done wrong. It was a matter of how I sewed the stem on, so easy fix, I may go back one day and redo that part. Until then, my 2 and 3 year olds easily identified the fruit for what it was, so it is good enough for me. And here it is, the first of many handmade play foods I will share with you, my apple-ish…

It's more round than it should be, but still fun for the girls!
