I have seen these little beanies around and think they are so cute, so when I had a special request to make one, I thought, sure. I came up with my own pattern – will post in my links as soon as I can. In the meantime, I thought I would put up some pictures and a link to my store for those who don’t crochet or don’t want to! The colors used here were Fisherman and Light Pink. Of course, everyone is different and the listing itself offers color choices.

Finally got the pattern done!! Here is the link.

It is cute!
I finished it – then decided to put it up for sale! LOL However, sometimes I need a little feedback on the items I’m offering. I put this Halloween Pumpkin Face Throw on sale this morning on my Etsy account. It takes awhile to make, so I felt the pricing was good, but it is only 49″ square. Feedback, feedback! Click on the picture if you want to see the Etsy listing with all the pictures. Thank you guys.

It’s a rare event in my life that I can combine two great passions of mine, photography and my crafts. I have a great relationship with my landlady, and when she told me she was pregnant, I thought – ha! With the advent of little Zoey’s birth, I had the perfect opportunity to do just that. An outfit was decided upon, which I finished in record time, and we waited. I had to wait through seven months of her pregnancy – we didn’t get baby bump pics because her husband’s schedule can be insane – and then a scary couple of days while she was in the NICU, and another two weeks of isolation. So here she is looking sweet and healthy. God bless her!

Here’s another one of my lovely creations available at my Etsy shop! Really, I was proud of myself for making this. I wanted a sturdy purse to carry all my necessary junk, so I had to make it up as I went. I think I will make another one with multi-colors! I’m thinking of making this a freebie here on WordPress for about a week. If I hear some feedback, I’ll definitely do it.
See you in the funny pages!
My purty purse!

While perusing an old crochet magazine, I came across a real easy pattern for a bath mitt that I remember wanting to make many moons ago. I just happened to have everything I needed on hand, so away I went. After seeing my mitt, my husband and my daughter wanted me to make them one. And with my mother coming to visit, I know she’ll want one also. It dawned on me that this might be something I need to add to my Etsy inventory, so here it is in all its glory – LOL!

I still have it. 27 years and counting!
Hey, everybody! I bought this pattern booklet back in 1987 because there are also little Amish dolls in it, and I thought they might be a good toy for my baby. I did make the Amish father and mother, and sadly, they were trashed long, long, long time ago. I had always wanted to make the rag-style dolls, but I never got around to it. While rummaging through all my old pattern books, I rediscovered this and thought “Why not?”. So the idea for the dolls has finally taken root, after all these years and moves and etc., etc… I have modified the design, slightly, and added another doll, but that does does not take away the kitschy vintage-ness of the finished product. The images are links to that particular item in my shop if you want to investigate.
