Crochet Hook Holder

I finally did it! 
 I made a crochet hook case!
I had one that I bought many, many, many years ago.
But, I had kind of out grown it.
(I'm actually still using it for my thread-crochet hooks)
I always thought it would be nice to make one of these.  
In fact that is one of the MANY items that I challenged myself to make for 2015
1 down - 3,569 left to go... .hahaha
But, I was VERY happy that I used only yarn from my stash.
(and the button was from my stash, also!)

Rapunzel, Rapunzel, Let Down Your Long Hair!

It was my niece's birthday last week.
I decided to make her a Rapunzel hat
(I seem to have given myself the task of making a hat for all the children's birthdays)
 There are so many ideas for Rapunzel hats on the internet. 
I just looked, and looked, and thought, and planned and came up my own version.
 I used one of my "tried and true" hat patterns.
But, just like always.... it didn't fit just right.
I know that I crochet at a different tension that most patterns.
(I have trouble with gauge)
 So, this time, I put a couple of different patterns together, and came up with my own.
I am going to write it up, and put it right here on my blog.
So that I will have it and it will be MINE!
 She looks like a very happy little 3 year old.
 Happy Birthday Rosie!
I had so much fun finding and making all the flowers. 
My favorite was this one.  I even thought of making one for myself.
(But, what would I do with it? put it in my hair??)
