Starlight Bracelet Bag - Crochet

Started this yesterday.  Could have finished it in one day, but was busy.

Just a tiny bag to hold small items or small skien of yarn.
Would be a great bag for a little girl.

Yarn: Red Heart Super Saver. Approximately 3 oz.
Size H hook.
Pattern is from the 2014 crochet calendar, called Starlight Bracelet Bag,  August 6, 7.

Brick and Lattice Scarf - Crochet

Finished another WIP.  Easy,  lacy and light weight.

Yarn: Red Heart Super Saver. Approximately 5 oz.
Hook: size H

Winter Scarf - Crochet

Finished a winter Scarf in time for summer.

Yarn: Bernat Baby Blanket (feels like minky fabric). Color called Little Petunias (a napoleon, brown, white pink). 2 skiens.

Pattern : Cotton Scarf from the 2014  Crochet Calendar

Mug Rug - Crochet

Found this, with ends not weaved in. Made it a long time ago.
Finished it. Washed it. I'll take it to work to use.

It's made out of worsted weight yarn. Light blue.  Double sided. Chain edging.

White Frosted Cup Cake Crocheted Dishcloth

Another dishcloth for my collection. Pictures of all I have so far.

Lucky 7 Doily

Another doily finished.
Size 3 thread
Size F hook.

I think I might have started following a pattern, but it's been a WIP for a while I just finished it however.  I was using 7 DC so that's why I have it that name. About 12 inches in diameter.

Green clusters dishcloth

This patten said it was clusters, but really or was double crochet together stitches.  Worked good. I like the end result.

Reread your Sewing Machine Manuals

 I really don't want to start a thread with "I feel so stupid"
So it's "Reread your sewing machine manuals".

I was looking at my electronic manual to resend to my Kindle Fire and I was looking at the number guide on the needle plate (that big silver plate under the foot--mine has numbers and lines off to to the right for proper fabric placing--and no, I don't use it like I should). 

Then it showed that I have a 1/4" guide on my clear bobbin cover. I've never saw it.  Or took note of it. Of course I wasn't piecing quilts together when I first got the machine. 

So today I'm looking at a board on a discussion, and someone replied to my post--the original topic was about buying sergers and I showed my overcast stitch with my overcast foot (Sew Obsessed board on Ralvery). Since my material was pushed out of the way, guess what I see, bright, white and easy to see?

And my machine is called a Singer Patchwork... 

Just an FYI that was my strap to my bag I made in July 2013 here.
