Happy winter solstice Every one (or which ever Holiday you prefer). I'm almost done with making everyone presents finally!! all I have left is my fiance, which is easy, and my mother, how could technically be done right now but I feel an odd compulsion to keep making her things. Plus I'll be sending of my daughter's Christmas goodies, it may arrive late but who doesn't like an extra day of presents? here's a few photos of some of the presents (I'll post more after the holidays so no one can peek)
The Dragon is for my uncle
the lady bugs are for my almost-mother-in-law
the moose is for my stepdad
the snail is for my Fiance and you will get a better look at him after the holidays as well
I know, I'm horrible at keeping up with this, hopefully things have settled to the point of getting back to my old routines. So good news, I'm getting married!! We got engaged on Halloween and are getting married on Halloween next year, we're going with the steampunk theme and trying to keep it as DIY as possible. I'll try to post stuff here as it gets done.
Until then, I'm taking a short break from crocheting. I got request both from a customer and from my daughter to make a unicorn 'no problem' I said rather cockily. That pattern kicked my ass! I fought with it for days and then some, I'm fairly certain it even gave me the flu. So I decided that when I finished the little bugger I would take a break from fiber before I started hating it. In the mean time I'm going to be working on some illustrations instead.
If you would like to see that in action you can go here I got a livestream account! you watch while I work on some of the printables I hope to be stocking in my shop soon
So I haven't posted in over a month because I'm still floundering in my new role as live in girlfriend at my boyfriends mom's house. A true sign of our crap economy, I have given up my independence and in some cases my free will in order to have a roof over my head. I've never been good at doing what I'm told. But I have still been industrious (helps keep my mind off the more unpleasant things). I've made up a few halloween patterns, made a pleathora of mini mushrooms with more to come. And a few things that are not crochet as well. Here's a look at what I've gotten done so far. Halloweenies :) both patterns are available at my etsy shop, just click the photo to go there. These were all made with my Amanita pattern found at my shop, click the photo to go there Magic beans I made for a friend, I plan on making enough of these to use as counters in mancala a ladybug i made for my boyfriends mom, the pattern will be available soon A little Halloween Ornamentation A baby Squid, Pattern coming soon A needle book I made for my boyfriend The needle book i made for me :D part of my mom's birthday present The other part of her birthday present, he's only an inch and a quarter tall when standing. A super tiny mushroom, I want to make a forest of these, they are cute in person! Daddy Boo, Momma and Baby Boo are coming soon
SO I have had a crazy hectic couple of weeks, sorry about the lack of posting. I moved my B/F down here only to find he'd rather be up north, so we packed up and moved yesterday (well everything but me til monday) I've got a new pattern up in my shop and I'm working on halloween stuff soon, so check back in a week or two and if there isn't anything new on here I give you my permission to poke me with a big stick :)
With the gorgeous weather we've been having I've been spending more of my time away from the internet, I apologized for the stuttering posts. But rest assured that I am working my sunburned little bum off. I've an idea in the works for a comic book/crochet pattern crossover and some new patterns floating around waiting to get made. And then there is the print shop I plan on opening on Etsy, just as soon as i figure out the best way to do that :) Until then, here's a sneak peak at the comic crossover.
Meet Flap jack. He joined the evil army of cute creatures two years ago, but thanks to an accident it sewing phase, he's still not potty trained. Flap jack only has 6 tentacles so he's not an octopus or a squid, please don't call him one ( he has a complex). Loyal as a dog and not quite as smart, Flap Jack is always fun to have around the house, but he's ruined more than one evil plan. We leave him at home now with a baby sitter.
It's been awhile, but I have been doing things...just not the things I should have been doing. :) here is Oliver the first of a new series of patterns I'm working on And another little something I've been working on
Just that. Life is Crazy, things are all over the place and I couldn't be happier. It's been a while since i posted anything but I'll have something for you soon. Until I'll sending some of my happy your way.
I have total neglected my blog and most other aspects of my life right now for days (darn those cute boys) anyway I'm here and hopefully back in the swing of things. I put a new pattern up on my etsy a few days ago> Sleepy Owl And right now I'm working on a baby dinosaur series first up is Oliver, here's what I've got so far He's soooooooooooo cute I'm totally in love and he doesn't even have eyes
