This past weekend I received some amazing news! My Little Flame Pixie Bonnet, available FREE on Cre8tion Crochet, received a nomination for Best Bonnet in The Crochet Awards. I am so excited and honored to be considered. Just the nomination itself is a win to me.
I've been gone on vacation, and it was wonderful! I actually went without my husband or kids and visited my very best friend in Georgia. She recently had a baby and I went to help her out and just hang out with her. It had been five years since I saw her. Here's a picture from that time. I was pregnant with my son at the time.
I did tell my husband that it may have been a mistake to go see her because it made me realize how much I missed her! I really wish I could live closer to her and not be 900 miles away.
We somehow managed to not get any pictures of us together; we were too busy snapping pics of the kids and just catching up, visiting and relaxing together! While I was there we met up for lunch with Matt and Kelli from Sick 'Lil Monkeys. It was great meeting them in person but again....no picture! I'm really really bad about getting pictures of myself....
So as I get back into the swing of everything, with the weather getting warmer, what type of patterns do y'all like to see?
I have been doing several patterns lately that my 16x16 graphs will fit into. Well now I have a new set of graphs just in time for Easter! I designed 2 decorated Easter egg graphs and then left a 3rd blank egg. Then I made a larger blank egg. So you are getting 4 free graphs for this one but endless possibilities!
I wanted to have an easy project for someone who is new to graphs that would be good for warmer weather. So I came up with this arm corset! I love how it looks and the simplicity of it. It is a great pattern for someone who is new to graphing. I have included TWO graphs in this post. One is the leopard heart from the drink sleeve post rotated for the cuff and the other is a butterfly that is a new release perfect for beginning to graph. This can also be worked without a graph and looks great plain in both the single crochet and the Tunisian.
