Beach Ball Blanket = FUN Table Cloth

I have finished my BEACH BALL BLANKET/TABLE COVER!!!  I am sooooo excited about it.  I came up with the idea as I was floating around in the pool.  The hubby and I rescued a wrought iron table and  two chairs that someone in the neighborhood had kicked to the curb.  They do need a coat of paint, BUT  I knew I could come up with something before the bucket of paint arrived.  My son and I were throwing the beach ball around when the AHA moment hit me for the table!  BEACH BALL!!!!!!  I made it in the same colors and used white for the clear parts.  I even made a hole in the center piece so that if we decide to put an umbrella in the table, I can still use my cover!  I added a shell edging and am just in love with how it turned out.  The yarn is acrylic so that it can withstand the weather and washings!  Oh happy day!  

To view more great projects, join SmallThings yarn-along!!  It's nice to see what others are working on.  Started reading together with my youngest son: George's Secret Key to the Universe George's Secret Key to the Universe by Lucy and Stephen Hawking.  Made it to chapter 4 and it seems like it's going to be an adventurous read.  

Have a great Wednesday!!!
