SHELLS AND SUNSHINE COCOON & HAT SET

SHELLS AND SUNSHINE COCOON & HAT SET

Spring is on its way, and a little sunshine will be nice.  I completed my next pattern over the weekend and made two sample sets… I am hoping I got all the little quirks worked out and I will be posting the free pattern later this week for these cute little baby Cocoon & Hat Sets.  I tossed around the thought of what to call the pattern and since the sweet little yellow one was the first one completed, I decided to call them Shells & Sunshine Cocoon and Hat Set !

.

I will be carefully going over the pattern a couple more times to make sure it works before I post it.  The pattern is simple and works up  quickly.  The set could be made up in just a few hours if you had a baby shower to go too!  The set is for newborn – 3 months.

.

These 2 sets will be delivered as usual to Alpine Originals to put up for sale.  Like I was saying last post, they are participating later this month in the our city’s Art Walk… The display they have this month is focusing on artists with children’s items.  So… I have been working at record speed to make several items that fit in that category!

Week 2..National Crochet Month… A Peek At The Next Free Pattern

Week 2..National Crochet Month… A Peek At The Next Free Pattern

It’s National Crochet Month,,, Week 2…  I am so excited to be working on my next pattern to be published here on my site and on ravelry.com  later this week!

I live in a very small town and crochet supplies are hard to come by… I needed some new yarn to work on this project and my new pattern.  This go around I was able to find what I needed for a reasonable price at amazon.com  and it arrived at my home yesterday…  It was so exciting to open a box and see new skeins of yarn to add to my stash!

Some great yarn to start a new project…

I started my project right away… So excited to write a new pattern and make my newest item to deliver later this week to the shop.  This month our town will re-start the once a month Art Walk.  The theme at Alpine Originals (the shop where I sell) is Children… So they will be highlighting all the artists (including me) and all the children’s items they make… I am busy making extra kids items just for this event!  Hint…. The next FREE PATTERN is in this category…

The weekend was coming to a close and  looking back I actually got a lot done!  A little housekeeping… A long walk with Charlie and finished up some crochet projects… Just in time to start the next weeks list of to- do’s!

.

My weekend journey started off Saturday morning with a cup off coffee and of course I used one of my Twisted Stitches Coffee Cozy’s and since we are still celebrating National Crochet Month… Don’t forget to check out the FREE PATTERN by clicking on the pattern tab…

Then I got to work finishing up an adorable Sweet Pea Zig Zag Baby Blanket that I will be delivering to the shop this week… I haven’t done a Ripple Afghan for years, I must say…

I love the way this turned out, some little sweet pea will get to snuggle in very soon!

Then… I got the notice on my weather station… A large storm headed our way on Tuesday… It looked so beautiful outside today, I couldn’t resist and decided to take Charlie for a walk while the weather was nice… A snow storm coming and our little 2 mile loop won’t be much fun to walk later this week,..So we headed out…

Charlie lead the way down the road and around our loop…Of course he had to stop and show me the geese in the field… Next the big decision… Which way to go… To the  Lake or town???

Another stop along the way to check the mountain out…Then back to the house where we looked back one last time to peak at the view of the mountain from the front step…

At the last moment, a quick stop to look up at the pretty cross hanging from the tree and Charlie was all worn out! Back in the house to kick back and take it

easy for the rest of the day
