Tin Cover

Remember I told you to check out Lucy at Attic24? Well she has been on a tin cover crochet kick, and I got the fever baby! I took a corn can and made the kids eat corn for dinner. Two out of three complied. My little girl wouldn't eat it even for the sake of my art. Nerve! Then I cleaned and measured the tin, and got hooking. The children were puzzled why I cared so much about the corn to make it a decorative cover. They even asked me if I was going to crochet covers for all our canned goods in the cupboard. Silly little kids....(maybe one day, but not now). I then bought a little basil plant and look what happened................

Isn't it sweet? Oh it makes me so happy............

And here it is again......I could do this all day.  I think its home will be by the sink. We will see how long it lasts without a ton of sun. I don't have many sunny windows in my house that are high up. Having a beagle means all food based products must be out of 'sniffs' reach.

Have a wonderful day. I actually see some sun today!!! Must walk little furry guy before it goes away for another week.


  1. I know what you mean! I made my daughter some simple fingerless gloves and it made me insanely happy!

    1. Glad to know I am not the only one!!!!
