Funny Finds Friday!

In looking around the web, I found some interesting things. 
Not all of them are funny - but, the first one is for sure!

I thought I would highlight some of my finds here:
This wreath cracked me up!  I would LOVE to have it
The price tag is a little too high for me! ($185)
But, it's sold anyway!

This little guy made me smile!
My little Benjamin is in LOVE with Minions!
And he's just figuring out what a bookmark is. 

These Ice Cream Cones are the cutest!
(they are the only kind I can enjoy now)
BTW- the website includes the full pattern

It took me awhile to get excited about Adult Coloring books.
Then, I saw these with Bible verses.... what a GREAT idea
(and they are FREE!)
And while poking around on the site - I saw THIS Bible
It's called the Inspire Bible
I think this might be in my future!

Watermelon Hat

When I saw this hat from my VERY favorite crocheter
I KNEW that I had to make it for the 2 little girls in my life.
This is my darling little great-niece

Isn't she a sweetie with her little watermelon hat?

Then, here is sweet little 
She is the daughter of my coworker

I had so much fun creating them for these cute little sweeties!

This post should have been published a YEAR ago - but, I am behind.
But, I want to make sure I have all my creations on my blog!

I Have Been MIA for Way Too Long!

I haven't posted in more than a YEAR!!!!

This poor little blog has been on mind all 365+ days.  

I was trying to decide 
 I wanted to have this blog!!!

To make 

To document

For Fun?

To make

I think for now.... I will stick with...... To Document

(mostly my crocheting!!)

So, if that is the reason.... then, I want to catch up on all the things that I have made in the last year - and chronicle them right here!!

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 #1

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!!)

Welcome to little Carter Max
