Honey Rose Blanket
Here is another “Corner to Corner” blanket for Project Linus, that my sister made in just seven days. The colors and shell stitch make this a very sweet blanket, hence the name “Honey Rose”. 46X46
This is my first “No sew blanket” and another blanket for the “Baby Toes Challenge“. It was a lot of fun to make this blanket with my husband and sister, each of us had a hand in the making. This is a definite make again project. 48×60

We all Scream for Ice Cream!
Happy Anniversary to my wonderful husband of 27 years, who helps me sort out my yarn and drop off blankets! An easy fun cake to make with children for any celebration. ❤
- – 1 box of twelve Ice Cream Sandwiches (or two boxes for a large cake)
- – 1 tub of Whipping Cream
- – Magic Shell Caramel
- – Magic Shell Chocolate
- Optional: Oreo Cookies (crumbled into pieces)
- Optional: Candy bars (diced into pieces) Snickers, Hersheys, Twix, Reeses, Optional: M&M’s, Nestle Crunch, etc…
- Optional: Nuts
- Unwrap all the ice cream sandwiches
- Lay the first layer of three down
- Drizzle chocolate, caramel and any other toppings you want. This will harden and act as a glue to hold this cake together.
- Lay the second layer of three ice cream sandwiches
- Drizzle chocolate, caramel and any other toppings again.
- Lay the last layer of three and then frost the outside of the cake with whip cream topping.
- Top the cake with more drizzled chocolate, caramel and any other toppings you want on it.
July 4th Blanket
I received a generous donation of red yarn a few weeks ago and decided to make a blanket to honor July 4th. This blanket is larger (50×50) then most of the blankets I have made for Project Linus, suitable for an older child or teen. A simple large granny square, with a finishing picot stitch to represent the stars on the flag. I didn’t plan it this way but finished just in time for Flag Day, just an added bonus! Happy Flag Day!
