Scraps of Yarn July Crochet Along - part 2

This weekend my time for anything remotely crafty was sorely reduced. The only thing I did manage to finish was part 2 of the July scraps of yarn crochet along challenge posted by Joanita over at Creative Crochet Toys.

I've been mixing and matching my yarns, so some of the colors may seem a bit odd, but overall I'm happy with the results. And I'm clearly getting better at mixing different types of yarn into the same project.



Here is the rectangle...

... the square with the cross-stitched heart...

...and the flower:

If you want to crochet along too, check out part one of the instructions here and part two here. Joanita published part three last Wednesday but I still did not have time to even look at it, though I've already printed the instructions. Hopefully this week will be quieter and will allow me enough time to finish this project within the month of July!

Enjoy,

  1. I wish I could crochet. It seems like such an easy thing to do.. Except it's not, lol. I've tried and tried and tried I just don't understand what I'm doing wrong. I love the flowers.

    1. these challenges are supposed to be easy, just basic stitches, you can try one someday...but I may be biased, since I learned to crochet as a child, so it comes naturally to me now...anyway, thank you for stopping by and have a great week!

  4. I think they're really cute, and look fall-ish :) We'll all want Fall to arrive soon, if this 90+ degree weather holds on. Thanks for sharing your great post at Together on Tuesdays!

    1. Thank you for stopping by Lisa...though I have to disagree on the fall thing. I love summer and would have it out all year long if I could, no matter the heat...

  6. So pretty!! I used to know how to crochet a lifetime ago, when I was a young girl, but have since forgotten.

    1. You'll have to try it out again. I had the same issue with knitting, my mother taught when I was five or six and then I never knitted again. Well, I started back this year, and though I can't remember all the complicated stitches yet, the basics came back to me in a second.

  9. I just actually bought some wool to knit or crochet something. I find it very relaxing but haven't really done it for years. Thanks for sharing this with us at #WednesdaysWisdom
