Having Fun With This One

Here is another sneak peek of my day dream scrap project.
I try every evening to do some work on it. I want to do a tutorial after it is completed, not because it complicated (it definitely isn't) but because there are some time saving tips.

This is the start of another part to my puzzle.

Just to give you an idea of how small the scraps are, here is a Stirilite plastic shoe container (I love these containers) that I filled with snippets of left over yarns that date back to the creation of dirt. I have put one of my crochet hooks in among the tiny wads of  yarn just to give you an idea of how small they actually are. Each bit of my yarn measures in length about 12 -16 inches long. Anything shorter went into a zip-loc bag to use for tacking quilts or for other simply smart ideas. Anything larger went into the granny square bag. Of course you can use whatever length you want. 
It becomes a personal choice, there are by no means any rules to this project.
 I also want to thank everyone who left a comment on my last post. There was some great ideas for using scraps and one suggestion was to use them to stuff toys and hearts. I liked those clever ideas. I thought of another which was stuffing pin cushions. I love the comments, so no one needs to be shy around my blog. I did try to leave a reply on those comments. I need to be more faithful to do that.

Now for a couple fun family photos of our little guy Holden enjoying himself when he and his parents went camping on July 4th.

I think this picture says it all. He is definitely having fun. He is a precious gift and we all LOVE him.
 Thank you God for happy little smiles to brighten our days and the innocence of a small child to show us just what is important ♥


  1. I think a tutorial would be nice Susanne - I'd love to learn some new tips about working with scrap yarns. Holden is so adorable! He's growing so fast. I hope you have a good evening crocheting. :)

  2. Holden is a cutie Susanne. I save yarn scraps but the smallest I keep are ones that will do the center of a granny square. I like your project so far.


  3. You really are the thriftiest crafter! But I'm one to talk, I don't toss little balls of yarn either. Holden is a good looking little guy.. his curls remind me of our curly headed grandson. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  4. Love your scrap crochet project and that little Holden is the cutest!

  5. Susanne, you're really very well organised. Sweet Holden, haven't seen you for a while. Love your curly hair and your innocent smile.
