Renew and reuse

I found this set of chairs at the dump and decided to save them. With a quick sanding and a fresh coat of paint that turned out like new. They will certainly get some good use sitting around the camp fire this summer.


I took and afternoon and made a wood pallet bench. It was so simple and easy and only took about an hour to complete. There will definitely be more pallet projects to come.

Crochet LOVE

Here is my latest crochet blanket! I'm really happy with the outcome. I have finally grasped the end chains and skipping a stitch after the end chain. I should have put a picture of my first attempt. My blanket was tapering and I couldn't figure out why. This one turned out perfect though. It will make a great birthday present for my mother.
