I did it again.

Patterns for these hats are available at my Etsy shop!

This pumpkin hat fits bigger than the free one. Its also fuller and more realistic.

I am also having tested this right now. To be available soon. Hes my Roly Poly Reaper. I don't think hes too scary though, since my 2 yo keeps asking if he can kiss him!! He comes complete with a crocheted scythe.

And, most important, I got to test for PEGGYTOES!!! If you haven't seen her work, you NEED to, I absolutely love her stuff. She is so talented. This one is Ohree the Orangutan

She gives detailed instructions on how to make each monkey.

You can find her free patterns here

and her Etsy shop here. I have to say she is one of the best designers around.

My babies had their first day of school yesterday. A full day too, when Quenton was little, he only went 1/2 days, every day, but the twins go full days, every other day. I guess its better this way. My house was too quiet and Ethan just didn't know what to do with himself. When the boys came home, they told me they had fun and had lots of stories to tell, but they don't want to go back! lol. Oh well, maybe it gets easier. As long as theres no fight, its fine.

As for crocheting, I made this beautiful little capelet. I found the pattern on Etsy and its well worth the $5.00. It was so easy and I had it made within a couple of hours.

Speaking of Etsy....I finally opened my own shop!! Yay!! I have posted my patterns for Natalie the Ballerina and my Rocketship Water Bottle Holder for sale there for anyone interested.
And if you're going to check out Etsy, check out my favourites there. Theres so many talented people on there and tons of beautiful patterns. I almost feel like mine don't even fit in!
Thats it for now, I'm not too great a blogger, but I've been busy! And I will get better, I promise. In the meantime, come visit my shop!

OK, so I totally disappeared for a while there, but I have been soooo busy. The twins had their 4th bday and went for their kindergarten orientation today. My 11 yo started 6th grade today (OMG!!! Hes 11?!?! and in Gr. 6!!!!!) We've had lots of fun over the summer holidays, but I'm glad that we're back to school. Don't ask me that in a couple of weeks when the twins start full time. I know its every other day, but still! What do I do with only ONE baby at home?!? lol, I'm sure I'll figure something out.

I finished these cute little patterns up too.

This one is Natalie the Ballerina. She was made for my brothers gf Natalie. Nat has a tatt on her back of a ballerina and her bday was coming up, so I thought I'd try to make her a matching ballerina for her tatt. She absolutely LOVES dancing. Well, it was a HUGE hit. She loved it! Here's a pic of Natalie (the crocheted version)

I added wire to her limbs, so shes pose able too.

I also made this for my boys. You can never find stuff for little boys. Well, ya, you can, but not too much. They love these though. They love Buzz Lightyear and watch it all the time, so what better than Rocket Water Bottle Holders? They start school soon and can carry their drinks in here. I thought they would be great!

One more pic. the last time I posted (before the free pattern) I was working on crowns. I finished them a long time ago. Here they are. I love this pattern too. Its just too cute.

Well, thats it for now. My patterns for Natalie and the Water Bottle Holder are being tested as we speak, so I'll let you know when they are available!
