I'm 50!! :- O

ACK!!! Today is my birthday. I am 50! I still can't figure out how that happened. lol. It doesn't seem like it was that long ago when I was young and dancing the night away. Well, I am still young at heart and even though I can't dance the night away, I dance when I can!
So far, the past few months have been great. I can't really complain about anything (that's a good thing), my kids are all healthy and happy, and I will soon have a beautiful new grandson to dote over. And, my crochet business is starting to take off. You can't ask for much more than that!

As usual I have a lot of things going on at once. My latest creations came from a suggestion from someone who asked me to make them a few things. These little turtle pin cushions and turtle key chains are very easy to make and they are adorable!

These little guys seem to be a good item to auction off on listia.com, I have had a few people watching and bidding on them. I am also working on a Bunny diaper cover and hat set that is still a work in progress. I am still not liking the way the monkey mobile is coming out. Hopefully I will be able to salvage it and make something from it.
Other than those few things, not much else going on. So as usual.....
Happy Hooking!

Long time, no post!

Wow! It's been a while since I've posted anything. Unfortunately our house was hit by the flu and I got out of the habit of posting.
I have had a few projects going on (as usual). I was working on the Monkey Mobile, but I am not happy with it. I have to go change a few things, or just start over. I have a friend who thinks it looks good, but I am so critical of my own work. I won't put anything out there that I am not  happy with.

I have also been unable to really focus until recently. I went through my remnants box and pulled out all the medium and really small balls of yarn that were in there. With the medium balls I made a few Tote bags that came out really nice. I have them listed as rainbow tote bags on my etsy shop.

With the smaller balls of yarn I am working on a throw rug that I will put in my bathroom in front of the shower. I will get pics of that when I am done and post them.
My craft room has been coming along nicely. We have 3 work desks in there! The computer desk (my son is usually planted there), my husbands fly tying station. He used a table that my older son made in high school wood shop, it is desk height and has 2 drawers, it is the perfect size for what he is using it for. He bought 2 shelving units and put them on top and then added another shelf across the top of the shelving units to create storage cubicles. It's nice having a master carpenter around the house for these projects.
My table is a desk that the former tenants left behind. It was in a storage space up in the attic. It is a beautiful desk that has a hutch top. So I have a small cabinet that has a glass door on it, and 2 cubicles and a large shelf across the top. As well as file drawers and another open cubby on the bottom of the desk.
It is really nice when we are all in there as a family working on our different projects!
I should be posting more regularly again.
Happy Hooking!
