What reminds you of 7th grade?

These do!! I used to make a gazillion of these back in the day! We had to have the loom for Mrs. Puckett 7th grade Home Ec class. The boys in Shop made them and the girls bought them for their class. I wish I could remember who made mine...I hope he continued woodworking because mine has held up great!!

I had a friend ask me if I could make some for her mom. After I saw what she wanted I KNEW that I could...if I could just find the loom. You know... I do keep everything!

My things have been packed up in the back storage house or in the attic or in the garage for 6 years now. The good news was... I knew I was coming up here for awhile so I labeled and listed all contents of each box. I know..sounds a little obsessive but over the years I have been able to find most of what I have been searching for!

So I got to work moving boxes out of the little house in the backyard and sorting through them (Good thing there was a church attic sale this last weekend)! Finally in box #18 I found it!! It has been SOOO much fun making these and remembering good times of "back in the day"! I even have a set now in the shop here

Best $5 I ever spent!

Look what's new!!

Look at my newest addition to the shop! These casserole carriers were made in the 1970s by my grandmother for my mom and aunts!! Nanny made all kinds of long is it used Red Heart Yarns!! I took the one mom had and copied it and have sold them to the ladies at church. Then I thought why not add them to the shop and share them with you?!! So far I have added one just now! Check it out here

Wouldn't it be nice if I could read??? It is SOOOO HOOOTTT outside! Going to have a heat index of 110 today...If felt like 200 at 10am!! I guess I will retake this picture!

So thanks to Nanny (who has now left us). I am so glad I took the time to learn crochet so that I can carry on her work!!

Have five more to add!! Plus I will take special requests for different color combos.
