Whoooo Loves Hats??

 Well, I think the jury is in.... and it's me.....
Once again, one of my daughters asked me to make a hat for a gift.
And.... I had to say:
 I had so much fun making these.  They are for a newborn baby girl and her 7 year old sister.
I can't wait to see pictures of them wearing them.
 Once again, I used my favorite "hat lady" Repeat Crafter Me.  
I am so happy with her patterns and how they turn out!!

Wonder Crochet Blanket #4 & #5

The more I crochet - the more I am liking all the colors.
I love the way it is coming along.
And the added benefit of using up my scraps of yarn!!

Easter For My Neices and AG

I saw these cute Easter accessories for an American Girl... and I know 2 special young ladies that each have an several American Girls.
These little bunny ears were too precious.... (maybe I should make some for myself!!)
I made one basket for each of them, and a bunny ears headband
They were fun to create!
The entire pattern had a sweet little Easter dress to go with the accessories.  But, I am just pleased with myself that I got these 4 items made and sent in time for Easter morning!!!

Unicorns are Magical!

My daughter called one night, and told me that her co-worker's birthday was coming up - and she loves Unicorns.  Would I please make her a hat!!
Well, needless to say, I had the hat itself done in that very evening!
The horn and the mane were done the next night.

Her birthday was last week ---- 
And....... SHE LOVED IT!!!

Wonder Crochet Blanket CAL #2 & #3

So, as I shared a few weeks ago
I was doing another crochet-along.
Here is installment 2 and 3.

My life has been a little crazy - so I wasn't able to take a picture at the end of installment 2
I am using scraps - so, it looks a little "rough" right now - but, I'm hoping that in a few months, it will look better.
I'm almost done with installment 4 - so, I'm going to hopefully take pictures in the new couple of days.

Segment #2 & #3

If you love dachshunds,
Or, if you love me....

Jump on over!

Gifts for Christmas??? In January???

Found this CAL (Crochet-a-long) that spends all year making gifts, so that when Christmas comes around, you are ready with gifts to give.
The first pattern was a hat.
I'm not so sure I would have picked this pattern from a list of patterns - 
but, I think that it turned nicely.  
The picture of this pattern had ribbon woven in on the bottom. 
I wasn't sure what color to use. 
What do you think? Dark green? White?  
This was a very easy pattern

Kind of looks like a Christmas Tree, doesn't it?
Then, I showed it to Lynn (my youngest daughter) and she took it.
Okay, I told her she could have it!
 I looks good on her!
(But, I said "Merry Christmas!!)

Just In Time For Super Bowl!

My nephew was expecting his first baby this month!
My nephew is on the football team at college. 
I was so excited to make a little football hat. 
I saw the pattern, and whipped it up over a weekend! (I was quite proud of myself)
He had the baby last week
Welcome to little Carter Max
What a sweetie!!

(love her site)

What's Hap-pinning Wednesday

Linking up here
It's been awhile since I blogged about my pins.
I really find it nice to go back through my pins, and look at what I found interesting in the last few weeks!
Still pinning Christmas - but I won't bore you
Easter is coming - and this looks so cute!!
 Maybe make a garland out of them!
Now for the crochet pins (of course)
Cute little fruit (maybe for my nieces?)
And, last but not least - the cutest doxie purse ever!

Wonder Crochet Blanket CAL

Well, I'm going to start another Crochet-A-Long
I know, I know, you never saw the 2015 baby blanket crochet-a-long finished. 
I still have it on my mind - knowing I need to finish it! 
 But, something more "flashy and bright" caught my eye....
 I have ADD... okay???

Anyway - be happy for me.....

This one is a little different. I will be crocheting rows, instead of blocks.... the up side: No joining.... YAY!!!!

Anyway.... here are my first 6 rows:
I don't have a color scheme.
I am using my stash of yarn.
 That is the only way that I was going to justify doing ANOTHER project!

I don't know where Hannah's headband is - I will have to investigate this matter!!
Here are the patterns:Cozy Posy Headband       Cozy Posy Scarf
