Happy April everybody! Where is the time going? April is almost half way gone. That's OK, though, as I'm ready for October to get here. Why, you ask?! Because I am going to be Gramma again! Woohoo!! Color me happy! My son and his wife are expecting their first. It's an exciting time for all of us. :)
On a crochet note (and I made these, hoping to sell, before I even knew about the baby lol) here are a few things I've made recently. I've listed them on Oak Hill Crochet, but haven't sold any of these yet. I started this poncho years ago and found it in a bag. I decided to finish it and make a little girls poncho out of it. I created the neckline and tie myself.
These next three items were made from paid patterns from Snappy Tots. I love her creativity, and these were fun to make. The cherries weren't part of the pattern. Those are my own creation.
I was trying to find a nice bootie pattern that I liked. I made these three pair, but they just weren't exactly what I wanted.
So I set out to make a one piece baby bootie that I really liked. After a bit of trial and error, I managed to come up with something I love! And then I couldn't stop making baby booties last week! What's nice is that the last row can be customized to ones' liking. I did a plain sc edging on some of them, and some of them I made a tad fancier. So much fun. I am going to post these on Oak Hill Crochet shortly. Hoping to sell some. I want to make some special ones for the new baby. I have plenty of time to do that, though.
Oh, I almost forgot to show you the doilies I made for myself. I made them to coordinate with "new" sheer curtains that I had purchased at Good Will. Pattern info is on the pics.
There is another project I did, but I'll save it for another post. I think I have filled this one with plenty of pics. lol Hope you are all doing well and enjoying spring! If you're like us, though, spring isn't springing too much just yet. ;) Thanks for stopping by!!
