blanket, clover, lemons & limes

According to my most recent count, I have completed 120 projects. That means I am 33% of the way through my Crochet Every Day completion goal..... and I only have a year and a half to complete 245 projects. Crap. I may have made this goal a little too lofty -- I'm not even halfway there! I may be giving myself an extension! lol Anywho, I have some finished projects to share!

First up, I finally finished my Hexagon Blanket. It sat around for over a year before being completed. Wow. That's just too long! But it sure is beautiful!

Next, this Four Leaf Clover (March 19):

Lastly, some Lemons and Limes made an appearance on my hook. These were another quick finish. So fun too. One day, my kids will have tons of crocheted play food. I wonder if they will like it!

What have you been crocheting lately?

Fourth of July Decor

One of my goals is to create something from this blog for every season. If I aim for just one thing, then I will slowly build up my seasonal collection each year. Smart, right? Last year I made a wreath and a hair bow and some flip flops. If you notice, none of that is crocheted! The year before, I held a patriotic coaster crochet along. A lot of you participated and it was fun seeing what everyone made. This year, I made up for last, with two crocheted projects!

First up, I made some patriotic coasters. These are round, not square, and finish up my set with the stars!

Second, I made a potholder. It's cute, but is it functional? I'm still not sure if I trust a crocheted potholder. Do you?

Did you make any fun decorations for this Fourth of July?
