Brunch with Maggie

I'm just crocheting a little on a future Granny Square afghan, it's a project that I've been working on for about a year! It's good to be able to relax with the yarn and know that I don't have to go outside! Maggie is chewing on her bone, we are both very happy indeed!
I went out to JoAnn's Fabrics yesterday, it was a bit cluttered in there due to  an inventory. I made a small haul by using my gift cards from Christmas. There was a very pretty bolt of Victorian Scrap that I plan to use as a pillow for Valentine's Day. It will go nicely with some Red Work and other patchwork pieces in my living room and sun room.
Welp! Back to my coffee before it gets cold!

Cozy Crochet

My kids gave me a set of crochet hooks and lots of cotton yarn for Christmas. I Googled "water bottle cozies" for ideas, when I came upon a blog called Coco Rose Diaries . I have seen her work on Flickr and Pinterest.

A beautiful water bottle cover from Coco Rose Diaries.
So here is my version:
Not as pretty as hers but it's a start! 

Water bottle cover and water bottle cozy.
