A Slice of Summer!!!

I adore watermelon....it's one of my very favorite things about summertime!!! And....since my favorite hobby is crocheting....well, why not crochet up a slice of watermelon?!?

I didn't have a pattern, just made it up as I went along, using yarn that I had on hand in watermelon colors....and I was pretty pleased with the results!!!


I sewed little round buttons on as the seeds....and lined it with some pretty coordinating fabric!!!

 As hubby tells me all the time....
"you're 'purse poor' "....
....meaning I have way too many purses!!!

Is that even possible?
Can a girl ever have too many purses?!?!
;-)

Blessings to you,

Deb
