Update!! :)

Hey everybody!! I'm back! I was sick the 10, 11, and 12. I had some sort of Flu/cold thing, basically I was sleeping bed the whole time. When I wasn't sleeping, I was crafting or eating :). I Haven't blogged in like forever because I was catching up on make-up work. I finally handed in everything on Friday! Here are some of the crafting creations I have made since I last posted!!

If you can't tell, this is a paw print dishcloth I made! I used Sugar 'n Cream yarn. It turned out very nice, and the yarn worked well in my hands! The color, I believe, is soft ecru. I really like that color becuase it isn't so blinding as regular white, and if I do use this, I won't be able to tell if it is dirty or not! It'll look brand new each time! ;)

This is a sewing machine dishcloth. All of my these patterns I use, I get of off Ravelry. This dishcloth is made from the same yarn and is a light purple color. This is probably my favorite of them all because it ties in my two faverite crafts! Yarn and needle crafting!!
My last dishcloth is of a dog house and is made, again, from Sugar 'n Cream yarn. I had a bunch in my stash and wanted to use it up. The color is called Hot blue. (How creative... not :) This one took me the longest for some reason....
I also finished my mom's crocheted market bag!! It was taking forever, but I finally got er done!! I ran out of cotton, so I had to use bits and pieces from my stash. I still like the way it turned out though!! My mom loves it too! I will get a picture of it next time my mom goes to the groceruy store.
One last point before i sign off. I am so happy February is basically over!! I need a break from the snow! I am ready to see the blooming buds on crabapple trees!! It rained like crazy these past two days!! I am so happy!!
O!!! Wait!! One more thing! I got some Elton John, Billy Joel Tickets!!!! I AM SO HAPPY!!!! I can NOT wait to go!!!!

The color purple. It is the juice of my favorite berry, the sparkle in my ring, and the color of my favorite yarn. Purple has this almost deep soothing feeling to it. It seems to lure me in wherever I am. I also love to color and crochet with it!

Purple seems to calm me down, it has this Serene quality to it.

Although this flower is very bright, I can't help but be calm while looking at it.

I like the color purple, although it is not my favorite color, I feel relaxed (most of the time) while around it. Onto my latest FOs, I finished 3 hats, 2 baby bibs, and some hand warmers. The best part is, that all of the projects are made from yarn that was in my stash!!

First, My hand warmers, very simple, I finished them in under 3 hours.

This hat I actually finished the same day I finished my had warmers. Both took under 1 night to finish.

This red hat ended up being a little big because i tried it with a bigger hook. It still like it though and have worn it out in public a few times.

This hat I made for a girl at school that asked me to make her one. She saw me wearing mine and went ballistic!!! So, I decided to make her one. All three of these hats are made from the same pattern.

Finally, I made this baby bib, just for the heck of it. I had some extra cotton yarn and didn't know what to do with it, so I made this. I thought the original was a little boring, so I added a little hand embroidered dog to it.

I have been crocheting up a storm here!! That's all I have made so far, I'll see ya'll next time!!
