Another Finished Crochet Project

I finished the cover for the headrest of Mr. S.'s new recliner.

It is just a basic granny square that I kept crocheting until it got to the size I wanted it. The granny square just seems to be my "go-to" pattern for some reason. I think I like it because I don't have to count my stitches... I really hate doing that!

I would still like to sew one, but I haven't found any fabric that I like yet. Next time I go to the big city, I will search Jo-Anns or Hancocks and see what I can find.

I did some baking this weekend, and made the Blue Ribbon Apple Cake that Pammy Sue posted about here.

It is absolutely delicious. Trust me, you can't go wrong with a recipe that Pammy Sue posts  ... everything I have tried of hers has been really, really good.   Mr. S. says thank you Pammy Sue!

This weekend I decided that I am going to try my hand at planting a vegetable garden. I found a spot in the backyard that I think will work, so this morning I am going to go out and start preparing the soil... shovel and rake, here I come! Mr. S. says it is the wrong time to plant anything, and that the birds will probably eat all the seeds. Hmmmph... I am going to ignore him and just do it anyway! Here is what I am going to plant... and a girl has to have cute gardening gloves, no?

I'm off to start digging before it gets too hot outside  ... bye for now!


  1. The cover looks pretty in that color...and you can never go wrong wtih a granny anything! :)

    Looking forward to seeing gardening pics in the future...and other cool things you crochet up, too.

    That cake looks very yummy. I droll when I read Pammy Sue's blog because she always has something yummy on there to make. :)

  2. I like your granny solution for the headrest!

  3. I just made a Chocolate Zucchini Cake in my Bundt Pan yesterday! Apple cake sounds yummy, too!
