Naomi’s Sunshiny Day

Naomi's set

Blanket made using Kim Guzman’s pattern, Personalized Baby Afghan. I used Caron Simply Soft and an I hook. The blanket measures approximately 31″ x 33.5″.

Booties were made with leftover yarn for the upper parts of the booties and Red Heart Soft for the soles. I used 11 mm buttons. The pattern was designed by Sylvia Schuchardt from Sylver Designs.


Personalized Baby Blanket

I made yet another personalized baby blanket. This time for some friends’ baby who is due to be birthed into this world in about a month. They will be naming her Amelia Grace.

I used Bernat Satin in Banana and Sea Shell. I used an I hook for the heart border and a J Afghan hook for the mat. I crocheted th mat using the Tunisian stitch. Otherwise, I followed the pattern from CrochetKim. I cross-stitched the name, Amelia Grace, onto the tunisian mat.

The blanket measures 35″ x 40″.

It’s nice and soft and the colors are great. It reminds me of pink lemonade. 🙂

Rose Garden ‘Ghan


I have been wanting to get a collection of afghans made for when situations arise such as births, hospital visits, etc, I am able to quickly get an afghan to that person. I have 2 already and the Rose Garden ‘Ghan will be the third.

I found the pattern in the May/June 2008 issue of Crochet Today!.

I will be using Caron Simply Soft, Dark Sage and an I hook. It’s a lovely pattern and I cannot wait to start it.

Personalized Baby Afghan #2

My friend has asked me for another baby blanket. Another family member on her son-in-law’s side recently gave birth to a baby boy.

She said the first blanket was a hit with the family so we decided on a second one for this little guy. Since he has already been dubbed “The Prince”, I decided to modify the border with crowns in place of the hearts.

When I first charted out a crown, I didn’t take into account that my graph paper was square but the area I was working with was more rectangular, given I’m using dc. But I did think ahead to make up some swatches to see what it looked like. I decided to modify the border even more. The pattern shows 6 hearts along the bottom, top and 2 hearts along each side. Because I don’t want my crowns look like they’ve been squished from the sides, I am making 3 crowns along the top and bottom with nothing along the sides.

I’ve also charted his name and need to chart another crown for the mat portion of the blanket. I’ve completed the bottom portion of the crown border and am about halfway done with one of the sides.

My second personalized baby blanket is finished. I used dark country blue and grey in Caron Simply Soft and an H hook. It is 28″ x 31 1/2″. Hubby helped chart out the crown on the mat. I used tunisian stitch for the mat and cross-stitched the name and crown in. I used a reverse sc for the border.

Emmanuel Banner


I am going to be crocheting banners/ribbons with words from the scriptures prophesying the Savior’s birth. I was inspired by the works of Ashley V. Blalock. So far, I’m using white #10 thread and a 7 hook.


I was inspired by Ashley Blalock and created this banner which I plan on hanging at my church above my table which shows some of my crochet work.

I used size 10 crochet thread, a 7 hook and FFF Kristha ribbon and an L hook.
