Vacation and a Question

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?

Easter Egg Free Graph

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!

Simply Elegant Arm Corset - Free Crochet Pattern

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.

Native American Set - Free Crochet Pattern

This pattern happened because I had a customer who sent me a picture and I couldn't find any patterns that were exactly what I wanted.


So I picked up my hook and went to creating.

Leopard Heart Graph & Basic Drink Sleeve - Free Crochet Pattern

About a week ago, I released my can size sleeve HERE. This one is the slightly larger size good for cups. I love these for all seasons. They are great for cold weather when you don't want to burn your hands with your cup and for hot weather when you don't want wet hands from sweaty cups. both sizes also work great for sippy cups. Which size you use would depend on the cup.

I created a new graph the other day as well and I love how it looks on this. It is a Leopard Heart graph.
