New Girls Slouchy Hat Pattern in the Shop

I have added the Girls Slouchy Hat Pattern to my Etsy Shop.  It has been tested, and is ready to stitch up for your little ones.  Comes in 3 sizes.  6-12 Months, 1-3 Years, and 4-8 Years.  Increase the hook size for tweens.  And it whips up in less than 2 hours.  I love how versatile this hat is.  You can have it a little slouchy or a lot slouchy.  Looks great in stripes too.

Sunday Morning Breakfast and a Mid-Morning Snack

Every Sunday, I try to get the whole family down for a nice Breakfast.  Today was homemade Belgian Waffles.  They certainly don't look gourmet, but they were tasty.  They sure do a great job of stuffing the tummy though.  Makes me want to just sit on the couch and veg all day.  It is going to be an amazing fall day here, 80 degrees and sunny in Northern Maine, on Sept. 25, can you imagine. 
Well, I have a terrible case of the sniffles, but I am determined to not let it ruin my day. I think we'll head to the park before lunch, and come back for a nice nap.  How about these for a mid morning snack.  My first attempt at some crochet food.  I had intended to make up a bunch of these crochet goodies for Big Sister's birthday party a couple of weeks ago, but as usual, my plans are way to big for the actual time I have to do it.  Oh, well, we think they're cute.
Have an amazing Sunday everyone,

Chunky Cluster Stitch Beanie and Ribbed Beanie

So what do you do, when you know that there are some patterns out there, that are like the one you created?
I have researched and found some free patterns like this, although slightly different.....  Can I go ahead and sell this pattern as my own, if I know that I have not copied exactly anything that I've seen, and that I can truthfully say that I just created this and perfected it myself?  I have designed it so it will fit up to 5 sizes, using a thicker yarn.  What are your thoughts?  I think I know what you are going to say, that is the reason I am posting this.  I know that I can freely sell the products I make from the hat, and be at ease about it.
There is so much on the internet that can inspire you, It's hard not to come up with something that is already out there. How can you not make it unique enough?  It's a hard topic I think.  That being said, I am working on another project that is very similar to others out there, but I think I have put a unique twist on it.  Hopefully unique enough.  I will share that soon, and hopefully get some feedback.

New Button Mums

We've been very busy here on the homefront. We are just about ready to put in a new oil tank and are getting ready to paint the cellar stairway.  We've been starting to pack up the yard and deck for the fall as well.  I am a little upset to be putting away the patio set soon. I have spent many hours on the deck in the sunshine, crocheting, reading or watching the kids play.  I do love fall though.  It is my favorite season.  We can still get outside and do some summer type things, just with a little more clothes on.

I have designed a little crochet Button Mum in three different sizes.  They are nice and fluffy and tall too.  I am going to write up a quick pattern and have it tested the the Free Testers Group on Ravelry.  I'll then put them in the Etsy shop.  These will be great as little barrettes, glued or sewed on to headband, made into pins or brooches, the possibilities are endless with little crocheted flowers.  These cotton flowers measure 2", 2.5" and almost 3".  I just love these.

Hope all is well in your part of the world.
And thanks for stopping by,

Where's my F and G Hook?

Question!  Er... questions!
Where do you keep your hooks?
How many hooks do you own?  Do you have many sets?
Do you misplace them all the time, or do you know where every one of them is?
How do you keep track?

Lots of love,
