Purse!


So, I guess I needed a break from crocheting. I had been daydreaming about this slouch bag that I have been wanting to make for my MIL. I finally completed it!

It was pretty simple, but took me some time for me to think it through as I am not really a seamstress.

I need to work out some more details, but I think I am going to make a lot more of these. :)

Update!

My poor, poor blog. Oh how I have neglected you! I am so sorry... Really. It's because of facebook. All of my updates go on there so there is not much reason to post here. But I will do better. I will.

Updates: My son is talking. At least he thinks he is.



I did ANOTHER fair. It was really fun if not as profitable as I hoped. I shared a booth with two other ladies and we had a great time. This time I took the baby and I got to be the Bohemian lady nursing discreetly in public. Ha!

Andddddd. That's about it, I guess.

Oh, no! I forgot I have a MAILING LIST! That's right. So, go ahead and sign up.

Watermelon Earrings


So, a friend of mine that I am teaching to crochet wanted to learn to make circular, crocheted earrings. Because they are so commonly made, I wanted to put a little something extra to them. I made them into watermelon slices!



It is, like all of my projects, super simple. Here is the pattern: ayanared.com/Watermelon_Earrings.pdf

And the video, where I show you step-by-step.
