Working on Some Spring Time Projects

 I just finished this pretty crochet project a large doily that I designed on my very own.  Its made with no patterns but just an idea I have in my head.  I used a double stitch and chained some stitches along with a few decrease stitches.  It measures 17 inches so its a large doily and I will be starching shortly.  Its a white cotton yarn I am using with small glitter sparkles in it.  the hook was a 4.25 mm hook.
This Chicken bowl or Boat I have not quite decided what to call it yet but I am thinking hard about it, is all my very own idea.  I created the pattern, choose the fabric and sewed it all up on my sewing machine.  I am using some wonderful heavy cotton quilting fabric with some really bright designs on it.  the head is quilting batting like warm and natural and there is a bit of fiber fill in the head.  the rest is felt and a bit more cotton fabrics that made a good contrast.  There are 2 little eggs in or on the back of the chicken and they are also quilting batting, filled with fiber fill.  So yup I have finally gotten busy crafting, there just has been so much going on, a wedding that will be Dec 11th and another grand baby is on the way plus some really strange weather on the Oregon coast, which I am sure most of you all have been in some wild weather too... seems its going on all over.  Today my hubby is home early because they all got rained out I think we have gotten about 8 inches of rain in 2 days and finally just a bit ago the wind finally calmed down enough that the Internet is staying on.
Right now I am doing some more crocheting, and yes its going to be another really large doily or decor for a chair I will have to see how far I can get with the yarn and I share that with you all a little later.  I am sorry I did not get a thing done for Valentine's day but I am working on a few things for next year and I am working towards Easter!! and Spring.
