    With leftover yarn create enough squares to make a checkerboard. Save and clean cat food cans or tuna fish cans (enough for 2 sets of Checkers). Paint cans first with primer. Then paint the cans with a color that contrasts the squares. You can crochet a simple chain to tie the board into a roll...

    My granny squares are starting to pile up and are on my sewing desk. I'm looking for someway to store them, without having to spend any cash. How do you store your granny squares?

    Okay Dee, here are some questions. How do I join these squares together? I don't want to sew them together, but crochet. Do I wait until I have all the squares I need or can I join a few together and make a row so that it looks like I have something done?
  20. Needle Arts
    I know I could have waited a bit longer, but I KNOW I won't get time to do any more, so they might as well be sitting at Dee's instead of here.
