Brecken and Lathan's Pillows

Another Christmas present homemade by me.  These floor pillows were made for my twin nephews Brecken and Lathan.  The pillow have a American military theme.  To make them a little bit more special they both have US Marine Corp patches in the upper left corners.  My brother, Bob, the twins father was in the Marine Corp years ago and sent me a group of patches as a birthday present while he was away.  I have used them in varies projects over the years but these are my last patches.  I think they turned out really good I was very proud of them.

Crocheted Mushroom

I spend the day resting on the couch with a cold.  While there I thought I would try a new crochet pattern.  I thought I would show everyone as I am very proud of it.  I am sort of a newbie at crocheting, this is the first time I have followed a pattern all by myself.  Usually I have to go over to my mother's and get her help in translating the pattern.  I did it all my myself today and it turned out really cute, I love it. 
Here is that pattern I used to make this crocheted mushroom. http://g0anna.blogspot.com/2010/09/patron-seta-amigurumi.html
