Good stuff on the way

So I got a new computer for my birthday, it awesome aside from the fact that it has no word processing program whatsoever. Which means I'll be taking a break from crochet for a few days...mostly. In the mean time, I'll be working on a gift for mother's day. I'm making her a lantern album inspired by the one seen here. For mine, I'm going to design the papers and many of the embellishments my self. I've titled it Keys to my heart and I'm going to make a mini crocheted key and the top will have a key hole in it. Plus it will open to have five mini albums inside. One for me, my sister, each of my kids and my sister's baby due in December.

For more newness I changed up my workspace here's the before:

and the after:

That's all for now. :)

Getting Back in the Swing of things

I took Easter weekend off and apparently derailed my train of thought in the process. It took me two days to get back to the things I needed to do. But get back I have, I've a pile of monkeys and monkey parts laying around.

And I've decided to commit some random acts of crafting. There's this house I walk by on occasion, completely gorgeous house, great yard, and in the windows are chickens. A large amount of folksy type chickens, so I decided I wanted to make her some very tiny crocheted chickens. This is what they'll look like >

I'll make the pattern available soon on my etsy. The monekys are available now here. Also my monsters and a few teddy bears plus a new monkey will coming along shortly. I hope anyway, I've got my son's birthday and a family get together all at once at the end of the month. So cross your fingers for me and lets hope I can get some of my huge workload finished.

The monsters are coming

I may not have been posting, but I have been a busy girl I whipped up a quick doodle.

And now I'm working on a whole slew of monsters for your enjoyment. Here's a small preview of what's been done so far.
Sy Clops

Hug Me Hank

Dee Vil (in progress)

And I'm going to include Grumbly in this series also

And I made this for my sister this week also

Henry wants to be a bird, in the mean time he's settling for being an ornithologist. But the kids got plans and potions for turning into a bird, just you wait and see.

So you see I've been very busy and I have at least two more monsters in the works.
Stay Tuned
