Cro-shay

Mum finished the blankie she was doing for the people across the street. She tooked it over to them Sunday afternoon. They liked it very much and they will have a warm blankie for the little one when it gets here. Here are a few pictures of the blankie in progress.

This is done on the diagon alley, part so it starts as a big triangle, then you square it off. Mum likes to use multicolor yarn to give it more color.

Mum has already started on a new blankie this one will get donated to Project Linus when it gets done. So mum has stuff to keep her busy while she watches the big noisy box with moving pictures.

Lovely, great colors, Mom says she loves it.

Our Mom crotched about 20 small blanky pads for the shelter kitties a few years ago. She used up all her spare yarn scraps. They were all different colors and the kitties loved them.

that's furry purrty. Our mommy cro-shays too, sometimes blankies or a scarf, but mostly purrty things to put on tables that we can sit on, or use to slide all over the table. she calls them doi-lees.

Patches-Mum some times call that too. She didn't think that was a bad word.

Meezers & Abby - Mum's mum did the doilee thing. Mum finds that far to picky and fine to work on. Plus she says they help collect dust.

Maybe I should get me a blankie and have mum do kittie blankies for the shelter. Hmmmm. MUM! Think about this!!!
