There's a poodle in your bathroom!!

This was sooooooooooo much fun to make!! She turned out so much cuter than I thought she would. Yes, it has to be a "she" it is Peach after all. But WHY!! is peach colored yarn so hard to find? All I could find at JoAnn was a pound size and it was more orange than peach. Luckly there is a craft store up north that had Bernat Coordinates in stock in the perfect color.

Well on to more things, making cradle purses sold from the website. Hoping that means more people are going there.
Catch ya'll later...~C

Blast from the past?

Recently there seems to be a rush of people looking for items reminded them of things from the 70's. I have a request to create a poodle toliet paper cover. Strange that somethings make a come back while others dont. Will keep you posted on my progress with it.

Lions and Tigers and Bears OH MY!

I had a brain storm a few days ago while looking at a yarn sale. Create a romper in shades of brown with a cap with ears like a teddy bear. Then another hit me, why stop there? Why not create a tiger stripe, lion or more? Needless to say I am sitting patiently waiting for the yarn to arrive. I love Herrschners and can remember their catalogs from when I was little. I would spend hours looking at things, that I could not wait to get good enough to do. Well here I am!! Can not wait to start. Looking for my hooks now!

Once again I have crocheted myself into a sore wrist. That is the only thing that I can come up with that is making my arm hurt so much. Yes, I have done this once before in a marathon rush to get aphgans done for my entire family one Christmas. I ended up at the doctors with a diagnosis of all thing tennis elbow. Beginning to think we need to have a whole new category at the there: cross stitch eyes - your eyes are crossed, knitters elbows - both elbow are hurting and crochet wrist - a pain from the wrist action.

But on a happy note, the harlequin romper is kinda done. I have decided to try a pattern set that all uses the same bodice, but different body patterns for rompers. I would really like to see some of my work published. Will keep you up to date on how it is going.

Harlequin Romper first draft

Introducing the Harlequin Romper. I am so excited about how this pattern turned out. I can not believe it worked out so well. I actually was shooting for a different pattern. But this one started looking so nice. I have ordered 2 ply yarn to make it in black and white. Not sure about the sleeves, but waiting for feedback from other. Hopefully will get the testers on it by Monday.
