Introducing Fay

the sweater I just knew was a must make. I'm using Red Heart, Coffee Fleck. This is my first plus size garment. While I considered making a smaller size, truth is I might want this sweater for self. There's a couple more of these "selfish" type of projects on the to do list. I figure if I must spend cash on the children, I can make myself some new things. You know freshen up my wardrobe. :)

I also started the corner granny afghan for a customer. I'm using Red Heart, Shaded Browns. Keeping my fingers crossed that it comes out gorgeous.

What did you craft today???

Until next time. Happy crafting!

Weekend Enjoyment

This weekend I was home bound. This is not a bad thing...I accomplished a whole lot. I organized my projects, patterns and even my yarn. The I crocheted. I even ended the weekend baking some Red Velvet crinkle cookies with my lil princess. All in all, I had a great relaxing weekend.

As I was organizing patterns, I started pulling patterns for this year's annual Craft Fair. In addition the vending at the annual fair, I'm also doing a very large event on Dec 9th at a huge hotel. I nervous but excited about the possibilities the opportunity will bring. I am still looking for quick work patterns so please feel free to leave a comment with your suggestions.

Here's a few pics from this weekends work. Enjoy and keep hooking.

Been Gone for Awhile...

but like many of my other blog friends, I'm back!!! Things have been busy in these parts.

Kid 1 - started 8th grade and apparently "dating" begins now
Kid 2 started 1st grade at a new school (the same one I went to as a child) and is loving it
DF (engaged on Sept 11th) now a full-time barber. New career path and I'm supporting him on all fronts.

and ME...
I started my new job as a Staff Assistant this summer and what can I say, I'm back in my element. I also have started selling my crocheted products. I just committed to be a vendor on December 9th which means I have lots of crocheting to tackle. Not to worry, I'm on it. Picked up yarn today, decided what patterns I will make and started working on one. :)

I am also in the middle of crocheting baby items for one of my favorite cousins who is due on New Year's Eve. I am so excited for her and her husband.

There's the quick update. Expect to see a craft related post by the end of the day tomorrow...

Happy Crafting!!!
