Long Time, No See!

Hello All!  Hope this finds you all doing well, and enjoying the season.  Summer starts tomorrow, although we've had summer weather for quite a while.  Personally, I'll be glad when fall comes back around.  I prefer it over summer by a long shot.  I don't handle the heat and humidity well at all.  

What all have you been keeping busy with?  I've been enjoying my family and my crocheting.  I took a few weeks break from crocheting after Easter as I took quite a fall and my left elbow was painful for weeks.  It is actually still sore, but over all I am doing so much better.  We had gone outside to hide the Easter eggs, and I tripped over a stake after only hiding one egg.  I fell splat onto a slab of cement.  Rick thinks I must have went into shock because I got up and walked a few steps before collapsing.  I was out for a couple minutes, and I guess my breathing sounded awful.  They called 911, but by the time the ambulance got here I had come to and was doing better. My vitals were fine so they didn't make me go to the hospital.  I got pretty well banged up though.  No broken bones, but bruised ones for sure. Anyhoo, I am back to crocheting now and doing lots of it.  :)  

I made these two dresses for my granddaughter before Easter. She looked adorable in them!

I also made a bunch of dresses to put on my Oak Hill Crochet site. Only the white one sold.

Made these bags recently, and gifted the brown one to my great niece for her recent high school graduation.  Hope she likes it!  Pattern is from Snappy Tots.

I gave this bag to my granddaughter for her recent dance recital.  Pretty sure she loved it.  :)  It's a paid pattern from The Hat and I.  I strayed from the pattern and sewed my turtle onto the bag.

We had a sleepover this past weekend with the three older grandkids, and Miss Adelyn (Pictured above) told me she is glad I crochet.  Melt my heart, why don't ya?!  :)  <3  

Good bye for now, and I hope to be posting before three more months pass by.  Enjoy your summer!

Essential Tote Bags

Hello all!  Sharing one of my latest projects with you...these essential tote bags I made last week.  Hoping to sell them on Oak Hill Crochet, but so far no takers.  Oh well, I had fun making them.  :) 

I also made one of these cowls last week, and another one yesterday.  I don't have a pic of yesterday's though.  Quick and easy project and I am putting in my "gifts" box for future use.  :)  

'Tis a gray and dreary day in my neck of the woods today.  I think it's a good day for crochet!  :D  Have a great day, everybody!

Hey there!  Long time, no see!  Thought I'd stop in and share some of the crocheted items I've been working on.  I like to keep busy with my crocheting.  :)  This first owl cocoon is available on my Oak Hill Crochet Facebook page.  I sold the blue owl cocoon last month.

I absolutely loved making these hats!  The pattern is from Snappy Tots, and it was really fun coming up with the different color combos.  These hats were donated to a good cause.

This next hat pattern was one I found on the Internet.  I changed it a bit to suit my personal taste, and added some buttons and/or beads for pretties.

Most recently I made these Swiffer-type covers using cotton yarn.  They're all for sale. So far I have sold one...the red/orange/yellow/white one.

Made this scarf a few weeks ago.  I love how it looks like it is knitted!

A pretty cowl I made.  No pattern. Just did my own thing.

Two more hats.  This pattern is also one of Snappy Tot's pattern.  I love her patterns!

I've made other things, too, but figured I'd just share a sampling. Thanks for stopping by, and please leave a comment so I know you were here.  Even if it's just to say "hi", it would be much appreciated.  I'm seriously thinking about quitting this blog as it seems that there isn't much interest in it.
