Today is all about planting these petunias, adding to my temperature blanket and doing homework. Two of my 6 week summer classes started yesterday and I’m trying to balance doing crazy amounts of work and doing the things I love.
I have been working on this temperature blanket since the beginning of the new year! It has 108 squares so far, which means I’m a bit behind (around April 15th I believe). The pattern is by The Felted Button. Also, she has a temperature blanket cal page on Facebook if you are interested in joining.
I will get a better picture later…after I sew in more of these ends!
Thanks for reading☆☆
Hello all, I know I haven’t blogged in a while but I wanted to share some news with you…I created my first pattern! It’s a stroller-sized baby blanket and I think I’m going to call it the Little Pretzels Blanket. If you look closely at the pattern you’ll see why 😉
I’m working on the pdf for the pattern right now. Hopefully I’ll have it up by the end of the week. I’m thinking about putting the pattern up on Ravelry; I have an account but I have never uploaded anything to it.
Let me know if you like the pattern or if you have any other name suggestions!
A little over a month until my next craft fair! This will be my fourth one in under a year. My first craft fair went very well and I met a wonderful lady who ordered three blankets from me. Unfortunately, the last two fairs have been absolutely horrible and I left both of them early. I think this will be the make or break craft fair for me. I think I will only do craft fairs around the holidays from now on if this one doesn’t go very well. BUT I am going to be optimistic and I’m doing it with my friend this time so at least I won’t become bored this time!
I am all about doilies right now!
Okay so I know that I am 10 days late, but I thought that I would welcome April in this post anyway. In crochet world April is the time for flowers and all things light and springlike! I am so over heavy, warm blankets and chunky scarves. From now until September all you will see is lace, vibrant colors and summer time beauties (except for one more blanket that I have to make by mid-June).
Before April started I finished the second fiesta blanket that I was requested to make. As time went on I absolutely fell in love with it, I wish I still had it!
Now for more Summer time crochet things:
I have been making barefoot sandals and doilies like crazy. I’m crocheting another maroon doily right now, which I may give to my boyfriend’s mother as a birthday gift. I’ll post it after I finish, I’m halfway through right now.
Until next time! ❤
First of all: Happy Easter! I hope you all had a very good day. 🐣🐰
Now back to crochet, this is the second doily I have ever made! The first one was a couple posts back and it was pure white. I wanted some color changes this time so I chose pretty spring pinks! I was debating whether to make the last round pink as well, but I’m happy that I went with the maroon. I think it makes it more sophisticated. I’m just about done with it, just one more round!
Here’s some of my progress:
The pattern is the Wisteria doily from redheart.
This morning I was notified that my blog has 200 followers!! Thank you all so much for taking the time to look at my pictures and comment on them. Being a part of a crochet community means a lot to me, even if I’ve never met any of you. It feels so nice to share the things I make to people who also crochet.
I plan on creating many more things and can’t wait to share them, and to see all of the things you make as well.
Sending hearts your way ❤💜💛💗🌼🌹🌸🌻
I finished making the white Barefoot sandals that were in my last post. I think they’re so beautiful, I want to keep them for myself!
I finished them over a week ago but I knew that in order to take nice pictures I needed to give my toes a much needed spring manicure. Although my toes do look nice, if I do say so myself, it still feels weird taking a picture of my feet! By the way it’s actually a pink nail polish but it looks like red in the pictures.

Today and tomorrow are going to be 60 so its definitely starting to feel like summer over here!
