Crocheted Slippers

Taking Orders Now!
Ta Dah! I made these in one night, they were so much fun and very easy. In my favorite colors too! The pattern was free and can be found here on Tanya's blog. As always, I modified it slightly and added a double flower because I LOVE flowers! Plain ol' Red Heart yarn was used as I have an ample stash of the stuff, especially in the colors I adore. So voila! If you want a pair, send me the size and color/s you prefer. Price depends on whether you want them plain or with flowers and of course if I need to mail them to you versus picking them up locally.

Off the Grid Scarf

My newest crocheted item crocheted with Yarn Bee Snowflake Wool Blend in the color Limelight with an H hook. It is very soft and squishy feeling and not too heavy. The fringed was tweaked somewhat by me adding little circles at the ends. You can find this pattern here and it is FREE! Marilyn Murphy is the original designer and it was published in Interweave Crochet Spring 2007 magazine. I am willing to sell this if anyone is interested, but if I get no takers it'll be nice for me to wear for the upcoming Fall weather that I hope gets here in Texas real soon!!!
Price including shipping is $35.

Day of the Dead Crochet

Finished the windchime afghan finally. Photos coming soon! Today I did something a bit different. It is called an applique, but it's more of a "macabre doily", or just not your usual Grannie's crocheted doily. The pattern was obtained from for free, but unless you have an account (which is also free) then you won't be able to get it. The pattern artist has it here on Etsy, if you wish to see it. I used number 3 crochet thread and an E Hook to do mine. Photos coming soon for this too.......

Wind Chime Afghan WIP

Afghan I've been working on. This is it so far. Still has 3 more rows and an edging to go. Pattern is free and can be found here. I've been doing a row a day as I have time and it really works up quickly, since it's all double and single crochet, not difficult at all.

The Host Movie

I just now found out about this movie. No idea if I'll go see the movie, but had fun making myself into the "motion poster" that they had on the official website.

Fat Cat Amigurumi

Here's a cute little kitty I crocheted recently with DK yarn in aqua. Free pattern can be found on Helena Poz's blog here! The only changes I made besides whiskers was a tail. I mean, what cat has no tail unless it's a bobcat right?

Facebook Time Off

I deactivated my account today. I'll be back if family is wondering...
Just need a break from habitual things that take up my time ;)
UPDATE: I'm back on again. Not that anyone noticed, but I am!
