Meet Mattie (Matilda)

At the library last month when I was browsing through the craft books, I spied "Knitted Babes" by Claire Garland.  I checked the book out from the library and after getting home,decided I was going to make one of these babes, they were sooo cute.  Since I didn't have the time to do this while I had the library book, I checked out Amazon's used books.  Can you believe 30 cents?  That was a no brainer, I bought the book.
and so

here's Mattie!

At a garage sale a few months ago I bought a crocheted dishcloth.  This was the best dishrag I've ever had for wiping the kitchen counters and cleaning.  So I got the whim to crochet some dishcloths.  I had a book to learn how and a pattern I had printed off the web.  This is my first ever crocheted item.

I started sketching my watercolor pallette in Jane LaFazio's class and just finished it.  I didn't think I could draw but I'm quite pleased with my efforts.
