November NewFO Challenge

It's been a while since I've posted anything for the NewFO Challenge, but I have something this time. I've been working on some gifts this month and actually remembered to take some photos before they were wrapped up for a change!

I've posted similar ones before, but these are new colors and sizes.

First are some crocheted coasters.

 Once again, I used Mary Ylisela's pattern as my starting point, but I do the very centers a bit differently.  This is the first time I've used more than one color & I like them, but burying all the extra ends was a pain!

Next are a few new Happy Bowls.  I really do like to make these!  This one is the largest I've done - I think it's big enough for bread or tortillas.

I had a little bit of the multi-colored, homespun type yarn & decided to add that in & I really like the way it looks.
The bottom stripe is actually crocheted in, but the top one is stitched on because there wasn't enough left to use in crocheting.

 These two are sold and will soon be on their way to Idaho!  Taking the pictures at night, the colors are off - the one on the right actually has a white stripe, not yellow.

 This last one I wanted to use up a couple scraps of the red yarn.

 And, as far as making stuff, that's it for me for now.
But I do have one more picture for you - this is Otis, my friend Brittany's puppy.  He is the sweetest fella!  Sometimes he comes to work with her on the weekend, and since I was working the shift right before hers, I stayed & played with Otis!

 Those feet are about as big as my fists, and you can't tell from this angle, but he's long & low.
I believe he's a Basset Hound mix and he is a very good boy.

I'll be linking up to the 2014 NewFO Challenge at
