Diamond Painting Projects #1

Okay, so three weeks ago I shared that I had done my first diamond painting project. Still not sure what I’m going to do with that one, but it’s okay. To remind you, this is what I did… I did enjoy doing this, so I got another, and that turned into getting a lot more. Some of the ones that I’ve ordered, were not the best, as when I first started looking at them, I didn’t know about how the bigger the canvas the better the image. Anywho, I ordered some from Amazon, Painting with Diamonds, Home Craftology, and Diamond … Continue reading Diamond Painting Projects #1

Catch Up On Crochet #5

As I’ve stated, it’s been a super busy few weeks, but let me show you a couple projects that I was able to get done. A market bag that I’m testing out to sell at craft shows, what do you think? And I attempted to make a pet bed. I’ll make another one, but stuff the sides like a pillow so that they stand up. This one flattened out pretty quickly. Oh yeah, and meet Sirius Blackie, he’s such a guy… I don’t really have much else to show, I do have a couple hats to make for orders, so … Continue reading Catch Up On Crochet #5

SAL #39

It has been a super busy three weeks. This is the first weekend that I’ve been “home” in almost a month. We went through another Grand Opening and now it is back to “normal” for work. I only have a little bit of progress to show, so here we go… Previously, this is where I was at… It’s super hard to see the difference in color. But here I am now… One book done, and I started a leaf… I do have other news to share though… Meet Sirius Blackie… He’s my new travel companion! Most hotels that I stay … Continue reading SAL #39

Catch Up on Crochet #4

I’ve been a bit busy the last few weeks opening another new store, and Grand Opening is next week, but I do have a few new projects to show off since last time… Another messy bun hat, trying to build up a store of these, though I’ve been selling some of them (yay!). Want to have enough for a craft fair, let me know in the comments if there is a color you think would do great. Messy bun and beanie with a pom… These are all sold… along with the next one… Toddler size kitty hat… This wrap is … Continue reading Catch Up on Crochet #4

SAL #38

Why does three weeks go by so fast?? I do not have much to show. A lot of the time my project was sitting at my dad’s house and I was not. So anyway, this is where I was… And this is where I am now… Super hard to see the very subtle shading, but there is a lighter green/grey rose pattern forming in there. I think I’ve decided to put some of my favorite authors’ names on the books, but stitch them in after with a backstitch. I’m sure everyone else has more to show than me, I’ve been … Continue reading SAL #38

Catch up on Crochet 3

So I’ve been trying some new yarns. I ordered some stuff from Hobium, and when the rather large bag arrived at my dad’s house, he was a bit confused since the return address was from Istanbul. But, hey it arrived in 2 days. You can’t even mail something across town and expect it to be there in 2 days. So wow. Here is what I ordered… Some of the yarn I really like, some, not so much. The one I’ve been most disappointed in is the Kartopu Hola. I ordered it in three colors, but now, I’m wishing I hadn’t. … Continue reading Catch up on Crochet 3

Catch up on Crochet 2

So, here are a few things that I’ve gotten done in the last 3 weeks… Lightweight Mint Chip blanket Purple multicolored hook book Another Superhero hat… trying to find the best pattern for this colorway… Dish towel and dishclothes… I’ve done 3 pink dishclothes so far… Youth size beanie… not sure I like this pattern, the stitches at the top seem to stretch too much… And adult size beanie… I like this pattern, it has a lot of texture which is nice. And a triangle shawl/scarf. Not sure I like this pattern either…I haven’t found a way to wear it … Continue reading Catch up on Crochet 2
