Another busy day

So yeah, I've been super busy with work and school and have had no time to post on here lately... Right now I am working on my first hand made regular post card, for a "Love Is..." swap I am in. Basically you are suppose to make a post card and write "Love Is..." and design around it what you think love is, or something you love. For me I love to crochet, so I made one that has a yarn ball on it.. LOL I gotta color the back of it still and wait for the glitter to dry.. I have touched up the glitter a bit more since I have taken this picture, how ever - this is my first attempt... I'll probably do a non-3D card for my next few cards. I am suppose to make 7 cards all together.

Crochet'ing with my cousin

Last night I was teaching my cousin how to make a hat... It's been a while since she crochet'd, and her hat turned out very interesting. I dont know how she did it but she did something really cool with the texture of her hat. I'll have to share pictures of it a little later today. Right now I am cooking for 18 people.. Me, Mom, Dad, My little sister Rachel, My little brother Daniel, my older sister Kathy, my aunt mary, my cousin, her 2 children, my nephew, my brother in law, and my sister's boyfriend, and also grandma and grandpa. I've been cooking since 10 am.. Well technically 11am, I spent the first hour thawing out the cubbed steak. I'm making country fried steak for lunch. :) Anyhow I'll post later tonight the pictures of the hat she made and the hat I am making.

Busy afternoon

I've been busy today, with homework and all my crafting! Today I made my very first decorated reusable shopping bag! It didn't turn out too bad, I dont think... I even used iron on transfer letters for the first time too though it turned out a little uneven.. but I hope the person I am sending it to will be okay with it.

I tried to make a cloche' style hat today too and did a different style to the edge. I just bought a pattern for a crochet rose that I want to add to it, to see how it looks. The top part of the hat was done by a pattern, but the rest of it is free form, as far as any pattern goes. I used a variety of sc, hdc, and dc rows after I did the basic hat pattern. I think it turned out cute.

Anyhow this is what I did today.

Something I want to Try

I want to make a quilt with this pattern. According to my google search, it's called Bento Box pattern.. I am working on a swap with a new friend of mine, and I am going to give this pattern a try and make a fabric post card... They are really neat!

Baby Blanket

This is a blanket that I am making for a friend of mine that had a baby last week. I probably wont see her until after christmas though. My friend had a baby girl. I don't know what the baby's name is yet, but I hope she'll like this blanket!

First post!

Wow! I finally made a blog!

So right now I am in the process of putting together my post card and blog swap.. I made my very first cloth postcard. I think it turned out alright. I'll share pictures of the two that I made.

Yoshi, my pomeranian - got real excited when I took pictures of it and he wanted his picture made too so I took the pics of him too lol.
