When I first moved to Oregon in 2012, I joined a local church and our Women’s ministry had a crafting group.

We’d get together every week to craft items to sell at the annual bazaar during the Christmas holiday. We sold baked desserts, handmade soaps, home decor like aprons, handcloths, towels, also plastic canvas crafts, jewelry, sock monkeys, greeting cards all handmade.

The monies we earned from the bazaar helped fund the Women’s ministry.

I was crocheting and knitting at the time and this photo gallery is just some of the items I made. Looking through these pictures brings back so many wonderful memories.

You’ll see some items that I didn’t make with yarn like the Sock snowmen. The pillows I made by weaving yarn on my Martha Stewart looms and then I crocheted the trimmings around the edges. One of the pillows were entirely made from crochet granny squares and then sewn together.

I even tried my hand at a few things like: (a) loom knitting a stuffed teddy bear! LOL! (b) The loveys were all crocheted, (c) golf club covers; (d) elf hat in the Oregon “Ducks” football yellow and green colors. One of the sock snowman was made in Oregon’s “Beavers” football orange and black colors; and (e) the purple baby girl skirt combined loom knitting with crochet.

The hot pads were made with variegated yarn that I crocheted in pairs.

Enjoy looking through my gallery!
