Homemaking: An End Table of Books

 Please join my list of Linky and Google friends when you visit my blog!
Thanks!
After collecting a fair number of "coffee table" books, I decided to display them all in one place since, when
stacked, they were the height of an end table.  
I topped them with a round piece of glass.

Needlework: Knitted Traffic Hat and Hooded Sweater

 Please join my list of Linky and Google friends when you visit my blog!
Thanks!

This adorable hat pattern is available free from Lion Brand and is called "Traffic Hat" .  It is for an experienced knitter.  

And my favorite Knitted Hooded Sweater is made with pockets this time.  
It has a 16" separating zipper which is easily added when using a
zipper foot on your sewing machine.

Helpful Hints: Cooking Bacon With Ease

Please join my list of Linky and Google friends when you visit my blog!
Thanks!
My friend, Diane, suggested this method for cooking a pound of bacon with less mess.
  Simply drape the slices of bacon over a pyrex bowl
and place the bowl into a larger microwave safe dish with sides.
I covered the entire bowl with wax paper to eliminate spatter in the microwave.
The bowl and dish collect the bacon fat.


Remove the bacon from the rim of the bowl while it is still hot and lay flat on paper towels.
It really works!

Needlework: Knitted Pillow Cover and Afghan

Please join my list of Linky and Google friends when you visit my blog!
Thanks!
 photo IMG_4103_zpsb6dhctys.jpg
This is an easy afghan and pillow cover to make.  With a size 8 circular needle cast on 234 stitches and K6, P6 across the row and continue doing so until the afghan reaches the desired length.  The afghan pictured has a finished measurement of 58x62.  
For the matching pillow cover, cast on 66 stitches with size 8 circular needles
and K6, P6 across the row.  The finished cover is 17x17 for a 16" pillow.
I then folded the finished piece in half and crocheted three sides of the pillow 
shut, leaving one edge open for inserting the pillow form. I crocheted a decorative lacy edge around the entire pillow, only attaching it to the front of the open edge. Insert the pillow form and stitch the open edge closed.
You can easily adjust the length and width of both the afghan and the pillow cover by just adding stitches six at a time.

Needlework: Knitted Baby Doll Dress and Hat

Thanks!

This doll dress and hat are variations of this Lionbrand free pattern.  I used size 6 needles and you  could use even larger needles for a larger doll.  
Instead of using a button on the back, I single crocheted a tie on
each side of at the back, long enough to make a bow.
