Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Hats

Happy Birthday to my little nephew!
William turned One today!!!

I love to make hats!!!

When I saw crocheted TMNT hats on Pinterest... I thought it would be "perfect" for little William!!

Then, I realized.... how can I make just ONE TMNT hat... I have to make all four!

So, William's 2 sisters and his Grandpa (#1 TMNT fan) each got one!!

I must say..... the Hats were a Hit!!!

I didn't follow a particular pattern to make these hats.  I used a hat pattern from Repeat Crafter Me. Then just improvised the placement of the band of color. Then I just looked for a pattern for the eyes.  (There are lots of them on the internet!)

2015 Crochet-Along

 So, I decided to take on another challenge
Tamara, over at is doing another
Afghan Crochet-Along for 2015

We get a new pattern every other week.
I don't really want another afghan.... but for some reason....
I DO want to make one. 
So, I have LOTS of baby yarn in my stash... so, I thought.....

Why not make a baby afghan.  
Then, at the end of the year, I will have a very nice gift for
someone special!! (a new grand baby??)
 I had so much fun making this square.  
I have never made anything quite like it, before.
I am thinking about making it again, with other yarn...
maybe into a pillow or something!
Here is the link to the page with all the deets!

I'm working on the second block... and it's just as much fun....
I hope it stays fun!!

Happy Birthday Erik!

My youngest grandson is going to be 1 this week!
I made him a Star Ball
 It's a puzzle ball that can be taken apart
 I love the colors - I think it will be just perfect for him to grab!

 Here is the link to the pattern for the ball.  
It was fun to put together.  
I hope sweet little Erik has fun with it!!

2015 Personal Crochet/Craft Challenge

I want to do soooo much.
If I fail to plan,
I will plan to fail
I want to make/crochet 12 items  24 items on my VAST "to do" list:
I wanted to make one per month, but, then when I was going through my list.... 
I found SO many more. 
 I tried to just look and see what I would REALLY make.
So, I figure, if I make 2 per month.... I can have it done....
But... that means that I have to somehow fit in my "other" projects...
 that I KNOW will come up.  
But, if I don't do them... 
then, they will never get done.... 
(does that make sense?) 
 I don't know.... 
I just want to do them.... 
And, I thought this was a good way to make it happen. 

So, you will see at the top of my blog, a tab that says:
2015 Personal Challenge

That is what I will be working from... 
in no particular order

I will keep you posted....
right here....
