Handmade Burgundy and Gray Checker Board Set

Marked down from $25.00 to $18.50.

 This checkers game board is crocheted in gray and burgandy. Checkers are crocheted in same color with 11 in gray and 12 in burgandy.

The game board is 19 x 22 and the checkers are 2 in diameter.
The game comes with a handy little carry all bag so you can keep all the pieces in one place. The bag ties with a drawstring at the top. 
Machine washable.
This checker board makes a great gift. 
I have a checker board set that I made for myself, I take it along on trips and camping trips for the kids (and myself).  With the carry all bag it can all be wrapped up nice and tight and won't take up much room.  And with being able to wrap it up so nice a neatly you dont have to worry about loosing the pieces.

In a saucepan, combine sugar, cornstarch, water and raspberries. Bring to a boil over medium heat; boil for 5 minutes or until thickened, stirring constantly. Remove from the heat; stir in lemon juice. Cool.

Meanwhile, in a bowl, combine the first six crust ingredients. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Beat eggs, milk and vanilla; add to crumb mixture and mix well. Spread two-thirds of the mixture into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. x 2-in. baking dish. Spoon raspberry filling over crust to within 1 in of the edges. Top with remaining crust mixture. For topping, combine flour and sugar; cut in butter until crumbly. Stir in almonds. Sprinkle over the top. Bake at 350 degrees F for 50-55 minutes or until lightly browned.
