Crocheted scrap yarn GIANT blanket

I have this habit of buying yarn at yard sales and rummage sales. I really have to stop I took all the blues and greys and crocheted them into this giant blanket. It covers a cal king!

Moxie enjoys lots of pillows!

Recycled Plastic card quilt

Been working on this for a while now. Its made out of recycled credit cards, hotel key cards and gift cards. The frame is a mattress spring from my kids crib which we bought 30 years ago. It has been used as a pea trellis in the garden. I cut the cards in half so they would fit into the spaces. Drilled holes in each end and wired them to the frame. Took me a while because my fingers would get raw from twisting the wire. I just love it!

                                    I added a copper pipe frame to it to make it easier to handle
                                          so I could enter it into the Marin County Fair.

                                                       Here it is on display at the Marin County Fair

                                                      I named it "Same as it ever was"

                                        And here in the center is my other recycled plastic piece I entered.

                                   This ones called  "And she could hear the highway breathing"

been a bit busy with our four new chicks. Building them a new coop run and nesting boxes. Today I hung some art in their coop. Truly the walls in my house are a bit full and anywhere I find a blank wall I must hang art!
This Edina, she is the friendliest chicken I have ever known. She comes and sits on my lap every time I visit the coop. You can see the produce labels I hung on the wall.
Still have to lay the stepping stone patio in front of the chicken coop.
