My Completed Crochet Projects

 These labors of love are finally finished and were given as a Baby Shower gift to my friend Danielle. Danielle is due 12/9/11 with a baby boy to be named Nate. I wanted to make a Granny Square blanket since it is a new technique I learned at Rumpelstiltskin's in the past couple of months.

The hat and diaper cover combo was something Danielle was looking for since she is having a December baby. This little set was not to hard, once I got a hang of the pattern. The trim of the hat is made with a cut up feather boa that managed to get all over my house!

I am really happy with the way both gifts came out. I plan on making a few more. The idea of opening an Etsy shop has been lingering in my head for a while now. I think I may give it a shot.

Hello There, Slacker!

I had a rough September! And by 'rough' I mean fun, busy, enjoyable and blog-less September! I am slacking on my blog and some of my goals. But hey- can't always get everything done at once!
Here is the September Goals Recap:
1. Read 3 books FAIL! I only read 1 and I hated it. Started a second and couldn't even get into it.
2. Make the Baby Registry DONE! Wahoo!
3. Make 3 new recipes I honestly have no clue if I did this or not. I cooked often but I don't know how many were new recipes.
4. Make a baby blanket Done! I love it, pics to come next week
5. Finish scrapbook Done! I will be posting pics next week for this also
6. Sign up for coffee hour Yup! I hosted in September and October already!
7. Dress less frumpy! Get out of the comfty clothes Pass! I purchased some new clothes and have been trying hard. I feel more like me!

Now for the October Goals:
1. Read 2 books
2. Check out some information for nursery schools
3. 2 new recipes

That's it! LOL Maybe I can complete these!
