Painting Acrylic Roses and Flowers video share

David Jansen is a very talented artist and he just came out with a new video.  I subscribe to his site and so I am notified when he adds anything new.  I hope you enjoy this share and learn from it.  It is a long video but you can skip through some of the talking by moving the progress bar at the bottom.  ENJOY!

This is a still shot I took of my computer screen...

I have been crocheting white cotton dishcloths.  I saw one that was a granny square but then only worked on three sides to finish it and I really liked the look.
This was very easy to do:
I made a granny square and added one row of single crochet around it.  Then I added 4 rows of double crochet on 2 sides of the square.  Finished by another row of single crochet around the whole square edge.  (angle of photo does not show the perfect square shape.  The one shown in my previous post was taken by a cousin, the minute she saw it-ha!  I made this one in just a few minutes last night.

Thank you for visiting and do come again soon!  Hugs to all you fellow crafters out there!

I Love making dishcloths!  Here are some new ideas for you who crochet.  I saw a picture of a granny square dish cloth and just loved it so made one to go with 2 others in white (love white, too!)  I use Sugar and Cream cotton yarn for these.
I started by making the granny square and double crocheting around it once.  Then I just added Dbl Cr rows on 3 sides until desired size was reached.  I then finished it off with a single crochet border.

 Now these beautiful soft dishcloths I bought at Walmart for only $2.00 for 4!  I plan to give them a lacy edge of crochet thread and will post when done.  Don't they just brighten your day??

My daughter Barbie made a ribbon windsock for me and I just love it!  I love seeing it every morning on the corner of the shed, so bright and pretty.

I hope you enjoyed your visit today and will come again soon!

Hugs from your old Krafter Kerrie:)
