I have gotten a lot done lately!!!! I made this purse from my Happy Hooker book.....

I am really happy about the way it turned out!!! I like the black handles with the blue body!!

Here is what the inside looks like!! I couldn't get a good close-up picture because of how dark the fabric is.

Nothing else exciting happened. I have just been packing for my vacation to California. We are only doing carry-on because it is much faster and costs less (because of that stupid fee).

I'm Back!!!!

I went to Canada to see my grandparents and cousins. I had a lot of fun and met some of my new cousins. The trip was fun but it was a 20 hour drive their and 18 drive back!!!! My dad does not like to fly so we have to drive to our designated vacation spot. We split the driving into two days. about 10 hours each day. I mostly crocheted and slept during the car ride ( My dad made us leave and 6 in the morning!) While Sitting in the car I made an Ipod cozie and a bunch of Heart Squares that I will soon sew together and make a baby blanket. Unfortunently I can not find my camera so I will show you them later.

I purchased the book Stitch'n Bitch Crochet The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stroller!!!! I love this book!! It is very well written and is detailled on it's directions. It also had great pictures and drawings. This book is great for begginers and professionals.
I am making a purse out of this book. It is called Fat-bottom bag. It has a rounded rectangle shape to in and has hoops for handles. I love it am about halfway through it on the 3rd day!!! The yarn I am using is Sugar and Cream Confectionary colors, in Pistachio. The yarn is made of 100% cotton. I really like the color and the handle bars are a tan color and they are made out of wood.
I'll keep ya posted!!!
