Crochet Bucket

 A couple of family members have been feeling under the weather, so I've been playing nurse maid for about a week. That doesn't leave much time for anything else, let alone quilting. At the end of a busy day, I didn't have the energy to start quilting Garnet and Gray, but I was desperate to get my craft on.


One night while trolling Pinterest, I came across this tutorial for a crochet basket. I immediately went to my yarn stash and dug up some pretty colors, along with three random bits of white. If you click over to look at Julie's tutorial, you'll see that I opted to not do the spike stitch. And my bucket finished a lot bigger than her basket, which is probably why it is so slouchy.
 

In just two sittings, I was able to finish this fun bucket. OK, maybe calling it finished is stretching the truth a bit. All the yarn ends are still dangling inside and strategically placed out of site. I'll weave them in someday. Maybe.

Looking forward to a healthier, quiltier week ahead!

I haven't done any knitting or crochet in years. The basket came out beautifully. I hope the family is feeling better. I crashed this week with my rib, lifting was too much for me so no more babysitting. I was able to get to the quilt show for a few hours, did you miss it?

Hope everyone is on the mend. Love the bag!! We need to have a craft day at my house with you and Sheila. You can teach me how to crochet.

Crochet is a handy craft to have on hand to quickly create something. I like doing little hats for preemies in the Neonatal ICU. I can whip us several in one evening.
Hoping all are better this week.
