Crochet Jar Cover and a Lovely Award

Hello friends, thank you so so much for your words of encouragement on my first sweater! I really love reading them and just let you know how much you have warmed my heart. I do appreciate!!

I made this jar cover last Sunday morning, I just felt quite lazy and wanted to make something small and interesting to "refresh" my mind while working on my other time consuming projects...


 I used 2 strands of light weight cotton and didn't prepare the order of colors first, they were chosen randomly. Doesn't it look lovely? I put my bamboo needles in this jar for a while and now it has a new shirt!

 

I had a lot of fun making it, and this cutie just made my Sunday! :)

One more thing I would want to share, I received a lovely award from a lovely bloggie friend when I was on vacation. Yufang at Hollywood Cerise blog passed this award on to me and I was so happy! Thank you so much, lady for thinking of me, it's such an honor! If you haven't checked out her blog yet, she is AWESOME!
Thank you so much for stopping by!

Wishing everyone a great week ahead!

Hugs, LS xxxxx

Awe, your jar is so sweet. I too, have lots of projects going on at one time. When I get tired of one, I do another. Before, I know it, one of them gets done.
