And Now For Something Completely Different.....Recycled Pop Top Necklace

A crocheted pop top necklace!  This was so much fun to make.  Once I finally got enough pop tabs - I had to ask around at work.  Someone generously donated these to me!  50 pop tabs went into making this fun necklace.  Recycling at its best! The finished project is definitely classier than you would expect from the sum of its parts!  I wore it to work a couple of times and I get a ton of compliments.  The kids are really interested in trying it too.  I guess I'm going to have to teach them to crochet!

Queen of Sunflowers Shawl

So I finished this shawl and finally got it sent off today.  It is headed to Sweden!  Yay, I'm international!  Anyway, I really love the way it turned out.  It was really simple and this time I added a scallop border to kind of pull it all together. 

This is the second shawl I have made in this pattern but I do prefer the yellow and brown one. I'm glad it was suggested to me! I hope to get the pattern written up and maybe post it for sale on Etsy.
