Crochet Basketweave Easter Candy Basket

What I am calling "Operation Yarn Stash" is where I am gathering my yarn balls of scraps and turning them into adorable Easter candy baskets for no good reason at all! :) 

Crochet Basket Weave Stitch

My first attempt at the basket weave stitch! I am loving the look of this stitch! 

Crochet Easter Candy Basket

Today I decided to make it my goal to use up some of my scrap yarn balls. These little Easter baskets seemed like a good idea! What first was going to be a rainbow colored basket turned into this! I decided to add a little coral stripe around the basket for a little extra added color. Shown in photo below.

Crochet Wool Cherry Hot Pad

Beautiful free pattern for a beginner cherry pot holder from Slugs On The Refrigerator. She has some great free patterns for beginners. I tried this pattern before and needed to use up the yarn so I worked up a couple more of them. This one above is my 3rd attempt. It is a great feeling to not only finish a project but to free up space that you had yarn stashed in! :)

Any Soldier Spring Card Swap

Just finished packaging up cards to send back to the participants of the 2017 Spring Anysoldier Card Swap! We started the swaps over in the forums at Any Soldier Inc. but when forums closed we moved to Facebook! Come join us if you would like to add in an assorted set of cards for your care packages at Anysoldier Card Swap!

It is with deep regret I must inform you that Marty Horn a veteran who started it all at Anysoldier.com has passed away a month ago. His family has taken over the website duties so you can still find a soldiers unit to send care packages to if you choose to do so. My thoughts and prayers for Marty Horn's friends and family.
