I've been crocheting a little lately, when it gets cold, I enjoy working with yarn. This pattern I found free on the net flower burst handbag you can go to her site and get a free pattern if you like.
Here is a hat I made for a friend who just had a baby boy. Owl hat she has kindly posted patterns for different size. I made the eyes with crochet thread instead of buttons, buttons makes me nervous with babies.
here is a hat I made for my friend's teenage son since my almost 8 year old will not wear hats. go to ravelry.com sign up for free and you can search for free patterns. there are lots of free patterns on there!
Every month she has a free basket pattern for you to try and she also sells kits and patterns as well. I make sure to visit once a month and print out patterns even if I don't plan on making it right away because I know one day I'm going to want to make it!
this pattern is no longer available for free but you can still purchase it or you can get a kit !
Where has the time gone?
I didn't mean to take the whole summer off!!
Its not that we went on a long trip or exotic vacation time just kept on ticking and next thing you know it was September!! I'm hoping to get back to swing of things and make more baskets, crafts and sweets!

I drew a picture of my cat Tora to show my friends the kitty poop incident, he is our old fat cat that had a little poop on his butt and jumped on our bed, sat down and well we ended up washing our bedding in the middle of the night.
following night he was sleeping between my legs and decided to you know what, we ended up washing our bedding again.

I've been busy this summer, I have cut down on some of my extra activity so I should be able to keep up with baskets and blogging! Thanks for visiting!!
With or without a ribbon, I'm not sure which looks better but this is the newest basket I finished on Thursday. My arm hurt so bad I wanted to cry but I got it done. That night I realized why my arm hurt so bad. It wasn't because this basket was so hard to make or because I used my arm excessively. I think it was because my arm was feeling pretty good, I forgot to take my medicine for several days! so I'm back on my celebrex to keep my arm calm.
This basket is again by Willowe's but for some reason I can't find a link to her pattern order page. If I find it later I will post it later. But the shape is just like this ode to spring except this one is smaller.
when you look from the top its oval because of the handle you insert, it shapes it this way. I think its very pretty and I plan on making the bigger basket, wondering if I could use a notched swing handle to get a similar effect.
