What I have finished this month

I have been doing quite a bit of crafting this month. A little bit for Online Angels 3 granny squares in the Plain Jane Pattern (it came from Melissa's Crochet site). I also made some cross bookmarks. Next for an exchange I made a couple of Christmas ornaments then made all 3 in the set for myself. They are part of the Woodland Wonders patterns for the Leisure Arts Leaflet #1735 150 Extra-Easy Ornaments in Plastic Canvas Book nine. I finished my cross stitch bookmark the June Celtic Knot Bookmark by Ink Circles. And I did an elephant wallhanging the Lotsa Heart Elephant from Wendy at the Craftastic_Free_PcPatterns Yahoo group. This was for my elephant collection. Now I have to get busy on some more things as I am signed up for another Christmas ornament exchange although I may have that one already stitched. Will know when partners are listed. I also am signed up for a biscornu exchange in the Brooks Books Interactive Group . This will be my first biscornu so I hope it turns out good for my partner.
I guess this is all for now. Have a great day!

Update on Patriotic Exchange

Well my partner finally received the things I sent. So here are the pictures. The star coasters came from crochetmemories . The Round Tuit I just made myself as I didn't have a pattern. Used a 3inch craft circle and just used the colors I wanted for the exchange. And for the poem I did a search on Goodsearch for "A round tuit Poem" and just used one of the poems I found.

How many times have you said:
I’ll do it as soon as I get around to it!
Well, now’s your chance, now you can do it.
Now, at last, you’ve got “A ROUND TUIT!”

Patriotic exchange

Today I received my Patriotic exchange from Eri. She spoiled me. So much and many different things. Then while I was taking the pictures SuzyQ just had to investigate the box. I wouldn't let her on the table with all the pretties so she got in the box and sat and watched them while I took pictures.

Baby bib for Online Angels

Yesterday I was crocheting. I made this bib for Online Angels a charity that I have made things for ever since they started. Here is the pattern. It is the Basic Bib by Priscilla Hewitt Copyright© 2001. I used Peaches & Creme 100% cotton yarn. Color 205 Gumdrop. I will probably make some more as it was a quick easy stitch and I do have more of the cotton yarn in different colors.
