Finally getting some work done

So as usual I didn't get a chance to write up the pattern for the hats.  I don't know why I even plan on doing it.  There just isn't enough time in a day... but thought I would write a quick post to share with you some projects I've been working on in the past week.  I started testing for some new designers in the past couple of weeks, and here are some pieces made from their patterns.  

Any My Little Pony fans out there?  Well check out these hats.  How fun.  

Zecora pattern to be released soon.
Working on one more as we speak.  These will go in Christmas presents for some kids whose parents needed extra help buying gifts this year.  I will be making 12 hats this year to donate.  Hope to put a smile on some kids faces.
I also got to test an "Ollie Monster" pattern by Bobbles & Baubles... I am so in love with this little guy.  I think he turned out great.  Not sure what I will do with him yet.  Mig…

Tests, tests, and more tests. Can a hobby be stressful?

What have I been up to?  What has been keeping me away from my blog?  Well it's summer is finally over which was super busy for us.  The kids were home from school, and we did a lot. My house flooded when my sump pump stopped working, and we're still trying to nicely get them to finish all the work.  My house is in shambles, but on a positive note we did get rid of a lot of stuff that we dumped down there.  Hopefully once we are done with it, the downstairs will be a better organized and used place.  Now that the kids are back at school I was lucky to get into a sewing class.  So excited.  I have used a sewing machine before, but never seem to find the time to sit down and work on any projects... kind of hard with 4 kids running around.  And when they finally pass out from exhaustion, instead of getting some sleep myself what do I do?  I came to a realization that I am working on other people's dreams.  But what beautiful dreams they are.  I have been very lucky and hooked…

The New Year

Here is to the New Year, and new beginnings.  We have been sick though the holidays and the New Year I spent in bed.  I am not big on celebrating so did not miss much.  I do try to do better than in the year before though.... so try to make a few New Year's resolutions.... that usually fade out as the months go on.  But here's to making this year better than the last :)

I have been super busy in the last few months crocheting and testing patterns.  I am now finally getting caught up on the things I wanted to make for my kids.  

What do you make with all your yarn ends?  Well I would tie it on and roll it into a big ball... Decided to use it up when making my son's gift.  A snake.  It's still a work in progress as he decided he wanted a cobra which complicated things a bit... I am now working on the flat cobra head... Oh the fun :)

Another project I worked on was an owl purse.  I've seen many different ones online... quite a few free.  I loved this Wise Owl Tote Bag fr…
