YOP 4: Week 8

I have some sad news. I can not make the wedding dress I planned on making for myself. The free link on ravelry is gone and the mag is out of print :(
After spending the whole weekend looking for another dress, I found ( in my favorite on ravelry) this Spider Web Skirt pattern  . Ive loved it for a while now, but I am not a skirt wearing type of gal but my wedding is a special occasion. Josi turned the skirt in to her wedding dress and it looks AMAZING! So I may have found a replacement ( that looks a bit better) .

No picture updates for the Mario Blanket this week. I was able to sew 2 more rows of squares and make a few more tan and brown squares.

Its the end of summer so more hat orders will be rolling in for Halloween. I am hoping for a repeat of last fall.  Many, many orders. I don't want to sound greedy but I do have a wedding to pay for :)  

I made my list a bit longer. Adding more home decor and holiday items.

I know what your thinking... "Shes blogging about something other than A Year of Projects? WOW! " hehe I will post my weekly YOP on Tuesday. 8 weeks have flown by.  but yes, This is NOT a YOP post. No cute graphic on the bottom. ( did you look? lol )
I do have other things on my brain other than crochet. At the moment I can't think what they are though.

Looking around my apartment, cleaning would be good.  :) My fiance is a bit of a messy guy. There's a game controller on the floor, his slippers are smack dab in the middle of the living room.I am guessing he couldn't find the laundry basket this morning before work because a shirt of his is on the arm of the couch, and the computer desk could use a little dusting ( his responsibility) , ooo change. : happy dance:

Speaking of fiance, we only have 8 months until I drag him down the short aisle at city hall. I have to keep him away from his precious computer for an entire day..OMG..lol I don't think his Wildstar guild will survive! Then there's the honey moon... that's 4 days long! oi!

Our wedding is mostly little touches. I tried to come up with a theme that would suit both of us. He's a gamer and I'm a hooker (crocheter) who likes Mario games, ie Super Mario's 3-D world, Mario Kart .... and he likes them too so I came up with a Mario/gamer - ish theme.  Like I said, our wedding is mostly little touches. Its a small event so no tux, Jon would look weird any way, so I am buying him a pixel tuxedo shirt I found on etsy. His "boutonniere" is going to be a Link action figure.... If I can find one. And our cake topper will look something like this (<< Pinterest link ).
My hubby to be thinks I am planning this BIG wedding. But I too don't want a big wedding . Something low key but fun. We are saving so much money not having a reception. ( all the more money to be spent on our honeymoon in ... Salem ,MA) .

Yes. I said Salem , MA. We like to learn stuff. We aren't resort people. Salem has a bunch of museums. And since Jon has NEVER been to the Boston Aquarium , I thought it would be a nice surprise if I planned for us to spend a day there.

More later. My butt is now numb... I must get off it.

Year of Projects : week 5

Week 5 already? By week 5 I was hoping I'd have something finished. Sadly nothing is finished. I have to get back in my groove after making all those cheer hats. I do have to say that I am proud about something... I cleaned out my ravelry queue of all items I didn't plan on making anytime soon. It went from 5 pages to 3 pages!! :) ::happy dance::
This post I want to set some goals for next week:
For the Mario Blanket ( my biggest project) I want to finish 25 more blue squares and 20 red squares. I believe after that I will have to buy more yarn.
I want to start and finish the Stripped Chair Socks and start the Hexagon Hot pad . Or vice versa. :)

Year of Projects : week 4

I am adding the cheer hats to my list :) I have only worked on these and other orders in the past 2 weeks, so I wasn't able to do anything else on my list. I only took a picture of the changes to the hats. My future SIL will probably take pics later today. 

For the Mohawk I changed the paw. Main reason is I forgot how I did the others..lol 

The cheer board didn't like the other headbands so they asked for the style below. 
I definitely like the others . HERE is the link to the other hats .

I also made this headband but I didn't include it with the hats. I think THIS head band is much better. Hopefully Teresa ( future SIL) sees it on my page and asks me to make more :) 

Yay! those are done! Now to finish orders and get back to my Year of Projects official list :)
