Once again when I sat down to crochet last night, I pondered what to work on… I have several works in progress… Lots of things on the back burner and I really felt like whipping something quick up… again!

.

I loved the hat I made the day before! Kathy Lashley’s Hounds Tooth Hat from her Free Pattern Page at Elk Studio Handcrafted Crochet designs… I made some adjustments to make it feminine… I got a great response to the additions of the brim and flower…  But last night I really just wanted to make her pattern and follow it to see what I thought of just the beanie… Masculine or Feminine would only be determined by the colors…

This is my first hat with the feminine touch… Tuesday nights project!

.

I decided to go with my daughters school colors for the first hat of the night.. “Blue and Gold”… I loved the way it turned out!!!

May,,, A beautiful month,,, Flower will begin to bloom,,, More sunshine,,, And my baby will turn 17 this month…

Like you know,,, I love to crochet… I have tried my hand at many other things and love to craft…  Alpine Originals keeps me quite busy with my crochet sales,,, but one of the other popular items I sell there are some adorable small boxes that I make out of Folded Sheets of beautiful paper… I make 3 sizes and yesterday they told me they were almost out of  my Hand Folded Boxes

So,,, I sat down at the kitchen table and whipped up 12 boxes in no time at all…I love to see how each one turns out once they are folded and glued in place…
