A Year of Projects

YOP8 wk 53

At last, year 8 has come to an end.

Here is where I usually post a few collages of what Ive worked on over the past 12 months but I cant do that this time. I started out good but I just fizzled out on the crochet stuff towards the end this year.

I recently discovered this new to me crochet designer ; Disco Sloth Designsย . I found her on Instagram. She had just started her c2c summer blanket crochet a longย  ย (#c2csummerblanketcal ) Each week she posted 4 new c2c panels for the blanket. Stuff like a lady bug, the beach, a camper, tent, a rainbow, etc… summer stuff. Anyway, Ive made about 3 . I made them into wall decor.

More new stuff I am making for my etsy shop…. Baby Bibs. This one is perfect for the Miami Dolphins fan…lol I was about 80% done with it when I realized what the colors reminded me of.

Well that’s it for year 8.

New Blog Design

If you have visited my blog before you can see that I redesigned it. Well the background anyway. I am also thinking up a new idea of how to post my blogs. Other than just the blah here is a paragraph of what I did.. pictures… another paragraph…..

I’m going to try to add more about my daily life…

Get into some sewing… I have a sewing machine and some fat quarters so I should put them to use.ย  ๐Ÿ™‚

Maybe some other crafts as well… I always wanted to play with alcohol inks.

With the end of A Year of Projects year 8 next week, I need to get my brain in gear and think of something creative. ( it might just stay the same..lol )

Here’s a little slid show of a few of my faves of this past year.

Hi All… I thought I would drop by again ๐Ÿ™‚

I dont have much to show. Hopefully that will change in the coming months.

I saw this design on Instagram . The designer hasn’t posted a link to the pattern but since I am not selling what I made I hope she doesn’t mind I made one for myself. Its c2c (corner 2 corner) .

I bought this Dragon Purse pattern a month ago. I thought it was cool although I am not much ofย  a dragon fan . It uses a stitch I dont use much but love . The Crocodile stitch.

I ran out of yarn BUT I am not frogging this one. When I go to walmart at the end of the week I will get more Mainstays basic yarn. I do want to start another one so I will use a whole skein for number 2.

I love love love this stitch.ย 

And since its spring I am growing stuff! I started this lettuce (romaine) last week and look at the cute little sprouts! I need to put them in soil soon.

Jon mentioned getting me a mini greenhouse so I can grow more veggies. I’m on the fence about that. I’m a bit nervous that everything will die or an animal gets inside and destroys everything. We’ll see. Do you grow your own veggies? Tell me all bout it ๐Ÿ™‚

This is too cute!ย 

Ok so my new plan for my yarn is if its not Halloween season or Christmas I will make baby clothes , booties etc.

Well this week I finished two baby tops.

This Cactus Baby Cardigan is so adorable! I want to make one in my size….. for when I am an old lady…lol The pattern designer asked if it could be featured on her pattern page onย  ravelry and of course I said YES! Cactus Baby Cardiganย ย .

Top # 2 is Baby Top Little Lace Tankย  . The first one I made is pink since I have so much pink left over from Halloween orders. I plan to makeย  mint, pale yellow, purple , and gray tops as well.

A Year of Projects

YOP8 week 33

Well hello there … its been a while. How have you been?
I’ve been good. Not much going on here. Halloween was good. Thanksgiving was good and Christmas was good as well. I just received my Christmas present from my man. Every 2 years he upgrades my gadgets. 4 years ago he bought meย  a kindle, 2 years ago a tablet. and yesterday…. with some of his tax refund, a chrome book. ๐Ÿ™‚ I am over the moon with joy !! I love this thing. I don’t have to wait to use the computer. My tablet keyboard was getting a little bit lazy and if you have ever typed anything out on a screen you know how annoying it can be.

Now here is where I show you all thing things I’ve made in the past few months…….

LOL There isn’t much to show. I’ve been reading. I have been abusing my library card like crazy. Since late October, once the Halloween orders were finished , I’ve been working on a Once Upon a Time c2c blanket by 3amgrace designs.

Other projects that are still in the early stages and not worth uploading a picture over are a baby Cactus cardigan and a baby tank top. They are gonna be so cute! I think this year I will devote my yarn stash to making baby items. Eventually one of my younger cousins will have a baby.. or two. ๐Ÿ™‚ And my etsy shop needs an update!

 

More later.
