Apple Hat

Ok ok.. I like making hats. These hats are perfect for the beautiful Autumn season.  Check them out in my etsy shop

Lets hear it for the 80's!

I was born in 1980... yup I am 33 yrs young :)  growing up in the 80's meant alot of cheezy stuff. :) one of my favorite toys of the 80's where the cabbage patch dolls . I had a few. with and without hair. So when I saw a pattern for cabbage patch kids hats I had to make one. I added one to my etsy shop and in a few short weeks it is the most popular item in my shop... ever! In the past 2 weeks I have had close to a dozen orders.  Yes I have another busy week ahead of me. :) check out the Cabbage Patch Kid hats in my etsy shop. I have baby to toddler sizes ( for humans not dolls :) )  colors available are brunette, blonde, light brown and black , more colors coming soon.

I hope you come along on this tour and "hop" to each member . follow them and let them know you like their Finally Finished WIP :)

My goal was to finish a hexagon blanket on the loom, a spider man hat, an apron for the church fair and a wavy scarf. I was able to finish the scarf and apron.   Both came out wonderful :)

Year of Projects3: week 3

this week was a sad week. after volunteering to help out a friend with her consignment shop, she decided to close the shop :(  it's a cute shop with a good selection but the shop is in a bad location.not many other shops around to get business from. about 3 miles away there are 4 more consignment shops.

Anyway... from week 2 i started a baby princess crown as part of my crochet hook challenge using a size E hook.
the picture below shows the same pattern, same hook but different size yarn so I have different size crown. the pink one is a baby size. the aqua one fits me.

The scarf below isnt on my list of projects... I just wanted to show it off :) I made it for a raffle .
