New Toddler's Warm Slipper Pattern and Last Chance on the Giveaway

Well, the warm slipper pattern is in the last stages of testing and will be in the SHOP real soon.  I just love how quick this pattern works up and they are WEARABLE!!   I really wanted a bootie that would actually stay on the little ones feet.  There are many great bootie pattern out there that are wearable, but I see so many that look cute, but just don't look as if they would actually stay on.  These slippers require Super Bulky yarn, so they are so fast.  

Well, I just finished my weekend working stint and am so glad for the beginning of the week, where I can spend lots of time at home, staying warm and cozy.  Don't get me wrong, I do like working, but by the end of it all, my body is sore and I am ready for rest.  My leg is also aching and I had a little pain last night, it feels like possibly a stress fracture in my bone.  I am going to get some x-rays done this week.  I'm afraid they will tell me I have to stop working for a while.  That is definitely not what I want to hear.

GIVEAWAY ends in 2 days, so please leave your comments on THIS POST HERE, if you would like to be entered.

Thanks for stopping by,

A New Downton Abbey Inspired Baby Toddler Hat~ and Don't Miss My Giveaway

I have been so inspired by Downton Abbey and it's beautiful costumes and scenery, and have seen so much of it over the internet on Blogs and Pinterest.  I have stitched up this little shells hat, added a curved flipped visor and my Carnation flower.  I am so pleased with how it turned out.  I am making more as we speak.    I just can't stop crocheting....don't you just hate that?  Hee Hee.

Well I am back to work, part time, anyway.  I am serving on the weekends, at Ruby Tuesday, and getting home around 11:30PM.  I am so tired on the weekends, my body just aches every morning.  I am just not used to it, but I am hoping I can lose a few pounds running around like I do.  I think I have already lost a couple.  It feels great to have a little more cash on hand though.  Spring fever has hit me, even though we are still burying in snow.  I have been searching the internet for new spring clothes for the girls and I, and feel that a can afford a few new things.

If you haven't already signed up for my GIVEAWAY,  please do so.  The more the merrier.  You can post your comments  HERE.  I am still having a sale in the SHOP as well.

Thanks for stopping by.  I do love your comments,

Finally Got a Pretty Picture

It is so hard to get a good picture of my little girl. (Big sister, anyway).  She is such a goofball when I take the camera out.  I get so frustrated and dance around and act like a big goofball myself just to get her to smile.  One out of a thousand I'd say.  This is a newsboy hat that I whipped up.  It has a slightly rouched top with little crochet buttons.  I think it is so cute.  I think I got the visor right too.  Sometimes it's hard to make them look good.  I added this hat to the shop and want to make some more colors.
 I have a little slipper pattern in the works, I am just trying to iron out the sizing kinks.  Hope to have that one tested soon.

Thanks for stopping by,
