St. Patrick's Day Decorations

Thought I would post all my St. Patrick's Day decorations.

My kitchen table... I crocheted this table topper last year.

This is the doily in the kitchen. The printable I got from Pinterest. Follow me on Pinterest  I have a board called Printables.

This is in the Living room

My dinning room table

The table runner I made a few years back..
Please excuse the puzzle pieces( hahahaha) I am putting together a puzzle for the sewing room.

I have a long way to go on the puzzle. I am not very good with puzzles. :) But I am trying. I keep it on the card table.

Crochet Living-room Pillow Cover

I had boring beige pillows on my sofa in the living room. I wanted something with color,I saw this pattern on the Internet and knew this is what I want. I used some of my yarn that has been sitting around for awhile. I don't throw out any thread,yarn,fabric,batting. Anything like that. But then I wonder why my closets are full. Lol
Here is my flower pillow
Funny how the first picture doesn't show the center blue

Pull Apart Pork

I tried a new receipe yesterday. Pull apart pork I found it on the Internet. It is very simple. A pork loin,BBQ sauce and honey. I didn't have honey so I used light Karo Syrup.its just to sweeten it a little. I cut the pork loin in pieces about 2inch (this is just to make it pull it apart easier).
a whole bottle of BBQ sauce and 2 tablespoon or 3 of the Karo syrup. I did add alittle water . I put this all on my crockpot on high around 9 am. About 1pm I check on it and started pulling it apart. At 3pm I just had to taste it. Lol. It sure did make the house smell good. I will make this again.

I decided to start crocheting a new tablecloth this year. My plan is to have it finished by December. You noticed I said "plan". I crochet slow, but there is hope I will have it done . I am making it 52x72 or about that.maybe a bit larger. Right now I calls for 234 squares I have 19 finished. If I get too bored with it I can alway just make a table runner. It calls using 2strands of size 10 thread, I am using Aunt Lydia's classic crochet thread. The big ball. It has 2730 yards . This will be my bigger project thus far I need 10,000 yards of thread that' a lot of thread.

Also I have to post from my cell phone. My Internet is out AGAIN.
