Cookie-Cookie-Cookie starts with C

My mother's birthday was this month. I decided to make her tea cup (like the one posted here only better - pictures of it later on). I though that the cup wasn't enough, so I was going to make a cookie jar full of cookies to go with it. Great idea in theory. It took much longer that I though it would. The cookies were the worst part. I think I made the jar bigger than it needed to be. I ended up making 20 cookies to go in it and it didn't even fill it half way. I stuffed the bottom with tissue paper and set the cookies on top of it. I also use chocolate scented oil to make them smell more like cookies and less like yarn.

All done with Red Heart on a f hook. The jar was my own pattern. The cookies were from this pattern (pdf file).

This weekend I got a lovely surprise in the mail; a box of crochet books. Yes, I had ordered them, but I didn't think they would come so quickly. I joined one of those craft book clubs and got 4 books for 99 cents each and 1 book half off.

Here's what I got:

Crochet Blocks in a Box: 50 Great Designs at Your Fingertips

201 Crochet Motifs, Blocks, Patterns and Ideas

The Complete Book of Crochet Stitch Designs: 500 Classic & Original Patterns

The New Granny Square

The Crochet Answer Book

I have been reading through them on and off all weekend. I actually used a pattern out of one on Sunday for a friends Halloween piece. I'm most excited about the Blocks in a Box book. That one has been on my wish list for a while now. I'm going to makes some out of there for my October square trades.

Some FO posts coming soon. I have several going at once. It's just a matter of getting them all finished and photoed.

Much love for hard yarn

Just a quick post to say 'Yes, I'm actually doing things with hook and yarn and stiffeners'.

While working on this stiff project, I'm also working on other things I cannot yet blog about. ^_^
