Made with Red Heart Stripes yarn in Cancun Stripe, added large blue jingle bells, and used the FREE PATTERN HERE!Just the thing for Christmas time to wear on a Harley or at work, right? Oh, and this pattern is done entirely in single crochet, very easy really, but a lot of counting stitches when you do the points.
Ten days ago, my twins had a birthday. Imagine how old that makes me feel, yet grateful that we have such great kids who are turning into wonderful adults! If this photo looks odd, it's because I had to Photoshop the two of them together, due to conflicting schedules (KIDS), so I had them pose on opposite sides of the sofa and then "stitched" them together. Happy Birthday Joshie and Boo!

I'm married, a Mom and a Grandmom. I create stuff whenever possible and it helps me to stay sane. It can be stitched, drawn, painted, stuck together, collected and "artfully stacked", digitally designed or photographed, depending on my current situation or mood. Keeping busy is a necessity and since I love sewing, designing and crafty things, it just all makes sense! I've also recently discovered how much I love traveling. In fact maybe too much? Hah! But blogging did open up a new world for me. I found that I'm not alone in my endeavors and thoughts and it is nice to read and talk to others that have a creative spark and similar circumstances. There's really so much inspiration out there for everyone!
