What Have I Been Making???

Here are just a "few" things I have made over the past several months. Hope you enjoy my crafty work! Starting with my most recent and working backwards. Have more to share later! :)

This is a cute little dress I made for my new grand-daughter, Abby, that will be here soon! She is due August 28th. I told my son, Matt, and his girlfriend, Holli, that she could come on the 25th - my birthday! We will wait and see!

This is a sweater set I made for Abby too!

This is a rolled brim hat that I knitted for Abby. I love this knitted hat pattern! I crocheted a chain flower for the top and sewed a button in the center. Can't wait to see her in it!

This is a dress set that I made for Abby! Her hospital pics will be taken with her wearing this set. Can't wait to see her in her dress Nana made her!

Made this tissue cover couch for a special friend and taking orders for them too! I even made one in Redskins colors!

These are just some of the bags I "knitted" for a contest I entered at Never Enough Yarn. The person that made the most knitted drain bags for Wellspring won a $50 Gift Certificate. I WON! I made 38 bags. A friend of mine, Chris D., came in close second making 35 bags. These bags are given to women who have breast surgery due to breast cancer. I recently learned how to knit and these bags were the first thing I got to working on. I had a ball making them and couldn't wait to get one done to find another color to start! My goal was 40, but I ran out of wind!

This is what I bought with my $50 Gift Certificate that I won from making the Drain Bags for the Breast Cancer Contest at Never Enough Yarn! Hats will be made for Abby and fingerless mittens for ME!!!

These are blankets I made for my charity, HeartFelt Angels, for the 4th of July.

This is a Breast Cancer Ribbon Afghan I made for a friend whose Aunt had to have breast surgery. I couldn't find a ribbon pattern that I really liked, so I designed this pattern myself. I thought it turned out beautiful - so did everyone else. The picture was taken at Never Enough Yarn in Winchester, VA. Thanks Pam!

And finally - this is a car seat blanket with a matching hat. Loved how the colors came out. I wanted to go eat some ice cream after making this! ha ha ha!


  1. Love it all! I really like how the pink white and black car seat set looks. I never would of thought to put those colors together, but I really like it! I might have to try that color combo :) Just wanted to tell you I've been making some gowns from your Newborn Angel gown set pattern, really like the pattern. Take care. HUGS

  2. Susie, it was dark brown not black! Like the Neapolitan ice cream! Funny how cameras show colors differently on here! Wonder what pink, white and black would look like???

    1. Would you be willing to share or sale your cancer ribbon square pattern?

  3. Hey Beth!! GREAT job on that afghan!! Is there a way you can share your pattern?


  4. Is it possible to get the crochet pattern for the breast cancer blanket? My mom really likes it a lot and her friend was just recently diagnosed with breast cancer.

  5. Hi Beth,

    One of my coworkers was just diagnosed with Breast Cancer. I love your breast cancer blanket. Is there anyway you can share the pattern?

  6. I too would LOVE to have your breast cancer ribbon pattern... Any way to get it??? Thanks!

  7. Is there a way I can get the pattern for the breast cancer blanket?
