Curly Q Crazy

Have you ever got started on something just to have something to crochet ? Well Wednesday I had to take my oldest to a dr. appointment and my tote bag project was just a little big to take along. So I just started something new !! I didn’t know what yet..I grab some white cotton yarn and a hook E  I believe and started hoooking…I got a row done …and thought what is this going to be ? LIGHT BULB !! Curly Q’s they are fast and  simple enough to do .

So I get home and I have 5 or 6 done….what to do with them now ? Then the Ideas started popping in my head … Hair Accessories !!! Hat Topper !!  jewelry !!

OK , so now I have Ideas now let see what I come up with 🙂

Well I am glad to say that I have spread my Craziness to my DD she asked me to teach her how to make the Curly Q’s after she seen a ponytail holder I made ..Now we are both Hooked !! lol    She is new to crochet but learns very quick . She is making cloths for her Barbie dolls..Just like I use to do after I started learning. I would just make it up as I went along tell it turned out the way I wanted 🙂

Well all, I am going to get back to my  Curly Q’s after I get a few creation done that I am happy with I will post some photos to this blog 🙂

Ruffle Tote Bag

So I was sitting looking at my yarn in my crochet bag..wondering ” what should I make ?”

My eye went to this ruffle yarn I picked up at my favorite craft store a week or so ago… So I picked the Happy Pinks Starbella and some white yarn. Now to come up with a project !!!

So I started making a chain….

I learned a new stitch around Father’s Day and I wanted to use it on this project . But what could it be ? I know a ruffle bag…I made a purse for my kid’s school fair to be ruffled off… But I wanted something different and more useful.

So it hit me I was going to make a tote …Something that can be used more and pretty 🙂

I have it half done I did ruffles and now I am working on the top half. I am hoping to have it done b4 I go to work tomorrow night 😛

Thank you for Reading and keep your hooks working!

Twitching for something to make

OK ! so I am  working on a small project for my little baby bunny . I use some miro cord and made a leash and now I am working on a harnis..The harnis is made with sock yarn and a D hook. I wanted it to be sort and have a little stretch. I am designing as I go lol!

But there is a problem it is taking longer for me to get it done for 2 reasons  1. small hook small yarn I go a little slower 2. I keep stopping and look trying to find some new to start !!

Now normally I can stay on one project and finish it  …BUT since it is taking longer then my mind wants it to take … my creative mind keeps wondering to pintrest and look for some NEW  & COOL that I MUST DO   !!

DO you have this problem tooo ??? Please share 🙂

Crochet Nut !!

OK ! So I was reflecting last night while at work about how far I have come in the last year and a half .

It started on New Years Day 2012 when after being a “Hooker”( yes this is what they call people who crochet) for 22 + years I decided I was going to make myself  learn how to read a pattern with the Lords help of course . Because let be honest you need HIS help to figure them out 🙂 Can I get an Amen !!

I mean if you would have told me 2 years ago that I would crochet stuffed animals,ties,hat,wallets,wire jewelry list goes on.. and read a pattern to do it I would have thought you lost your mind !! I have been trying to translate them for YEARS !!

I have grown so much in my crochet in the last year or two !! The speed I can crochet has increased a great deal..So now I can make more people happy sooner 🙂 But the down fall is when I don’t get something done when my mind thinks I should ..I get  antsie

But I am so happy and blessed for my gift of creativity..Because I truly have something I LOVE to do that I can share with others that make them happy too !!!! There is nothing happier for me to make something and give it to someone who loves it too !!

Right now I am working on a wallet !! Can you believe it !! If I get it done before Sunday it will be part of my gift to my dad 🙂

Thank You for reading and keep crocheting 🙂
