Watermelon!




Fabulous image from Art Threads

With summer almost over for us Alaskans it was nice to do something in celebration of this short season. I was inspired to crate this project from the June issue of Martha Stewart Living. With vintage being my new style this fit in perfectlyas these were popular in the 50's. Crocheting is something I enjoy doing when I need a craft to do that does not require alot of stuff. All you need is a hook and some yarn! I found this pattern on the Arts Thread blog. I liked hers because of the wavy edge. I think she did a fantastic job of doing a tutorial so Ill let her explain it....

She was also inspired by Martha :D I also have a bonus for you! Its not often I share my super secret recipes but this is one of my favorite side dishes to take to picnics or BBQ's and I always get compliments on it. So here is my recipe for
