Warm Heads

I got a youtube link from the grandmum of crochet Sister Valentine  that teaches you to crochet hats. So I thought I would try it out, this is my second attempt at crochet. I ended up using the left over yarn I had from my blanket and other scraps I found here and there. It is mostly just a sample practice piece and I shall do a good copy very soon most likely followed by a whole lot more. It took me just under 3 hours to do the whole thing.

Embroidery and Silk Screening

For my cousin's wedding in January I wanted to make her pillows. I had a screen already done from a previous project that I wanted to do that of course I never got done because it is me but I did use it on a shirt. Anyway to put it on the screen I used the drawing fluid and my lines where not too solid. After I printed it I realized that the lines did not look so good so I then decided to only make one pillow and embroider  the outline. It was over the winter break and I spent 40 hours just embroidering it and watching 30 Rock.

Crochet...I'm HOOKED!

I finished my first crochet project ever! So as I said in my other post I have started to crochet thanks to my boss. About a month a go give or take I started on this afagin made out of a bunch of granny squares. It kept me busy and I enjoyed it a whole bunch. I caught on to it pretty fast but near the end I was able to get one done pretty fast and have them look good. Every morning I would make a bowl of Red River Cereal and watch Ellen, Road to Avonlea and Corner Gas while crocheting to start off my day. Sometimes I would go further with my crocheting and television watching. Then after my day was over I would finish it with a crochet once in awhile. I cannot wait for my next crocheting project, I just might get addicted.

Still have to work on my joining a bit better with the different colours and what not but it is my first and I am very happy with the out come!
