I made this blanket for my nephew using the Special Delivery Pattern from Coats and Clark. It was supposed to be 37 x 37, but my pregnancy brain messed up and it ended up being 27 x 37. It should work good for a car seat blanket if nothing else though.

I used 1.5 skeins of Bernet Softee Baby in Denim Marl and half a skein of Bernet Softee in Lemon.

I don't know if this counts as doing something new, as I've been crocheting for awhile, but I did learn two new techniques while making this blanket. I learned how to carry over yarn while doing stripes and I learned the reverse single crochet stitch! 

Also this is my third project completed in February.

What a sweet blanket, meleriffic!

Love the link doll, mama24boyz!

I've never seen puzzle piece charms before...I love them kriSmith!

And going back further...love the kimchi, the hip scarves, and the fluffy sheep.

I've been doing some painting lately...definitely a new craft for me!  Can't post pics yet though because they are swap items....going to England.  Pics won't make it before end of Feb I bet.  Oh well...I'm having loads of fun!

I love this thread and check it everyday... without it I wouldn't have finished even half the stuff I have. It's so inspiring to see all the great projects poping up everyday =)
You have put into words exactly how I feel as well! This place is awesome Smiley (and you are too!)

dreadfullydivine: That kimchi looks drool-worthy! I was inspired to look at recipes after seeing that lol I can't have cabbage or radish but it looks like I could try using cucumber! Have you had it that way before?

v3nu5: Glad to read you have been recovering well. The doggie sweater is adorable! (and so do both your dogs!!)

SilverMoon: The TM patches are really cool!

kwiltykate: SOCK MONKEY! <3

rlynn: All your swap creations are darling. What a great way to repurpose vinyl swatches!

Smeddley: You have mad skills AND you can rock it as a bunny. <3!!

AlishaMisha: The sheep are too cute!

kriSmith: Those cupcakes look glorious.. The icing is so pretty it looks like flowers instead of icing!

meleriffic: What a pretty blanket! It looks so soft and snuggly Smiley

I have a bunch of swap stuff done but I have to wait to send it. I tried making some new things I've never done before and I'm very happy with how everything turned out! I can't wait for my partner to receive it Cheesy

I'm going to sound like such a newb but after researching what TM style artwork specifically describes, I'm still a bit confused! Can someone explain a little? *blush*

Here's the thread that started it all for me

And images from the current swap that's just wrapping up

Careful though, they're addictive!

Thank you for your compliments on the sheep everyone! They are made of roving yarn, so that is what gives them their "fluffiness". Smiley

mama24boyz - your 80s cartoon goodies are awesome.
I especially love the Thundercats hoops and the Kermit.

Aw, String doll Link is so cute =D

And I love those 80s goodies Smiley Somehow I was never into Muppets, but that Kermit ami is so adorable!!! And that Turtles cup cozy!! I need a Rapahel one :p
And I feel stupid because I always thought that cup cozies are kinda useless, even though I end up drinking cold tea and coffee everyday because I'm so sloooow.

Oh...and I'm glad someone brought TM stuff up... I only knew the bags and always wondered what TM style is exactly ^^;

http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=395702.msg4732120#msg4732120
I'm up to 30 mostly completed projects now.

I just wanted to share my most favourite projects of late:


This is a messenger bag made using a vintage table runner. I have plans for more like this, including one using a large tabel mat that has the most delicate ivy leaf applique on it.
