2017 Wish List
We'll, I'm 2 weeks into this new year, and I've already spent more time editing and working on my website than I spent in the previous 6 months. This is one of the 'Wishful' things I have for myself this year. I won't make a resolutions list because it seems that past ones rarely make it past the 1/4 mark of the year. Instead I am hopeful that I will use my spare time (as little as it may be) to be creative. To do things that I have been 'wishing' I had the time to do. I will plan my time better. Make a task list and stick to it. If I am successful - this theory should make it all work - creative time, work time, and those things that just have to be done every day in your life.
So here's to a WISHFUL LIST for 2017. Another thing - to make a post here with updates to see if this idea of being more organized works. Guess we'll all find out together.
Thanks for stopping by for a visit.
Craft Room Lallapalooza...
This darling hat is a pattern (Bit of Whimsey) by Margaret Hubert. I saw it in the book: THINK PINK, CROCHET FOR THE CURE (Annie's Attic).
After seeing it - I realized how cute it would be to do it in tiny yarn for a baby hat. My daughter is a photographer and has been asking me for some props when doing baby photo shoots. This will come it handy! CoziCrafts will get a few more items made for her treasure trunk!

It's finished! (The picture was taken without a flash - it is more 'pinkish' in differnent light.)
The vest turned out really nice!
Again - I can't believe how quickly it worked up. This is a pattern worth adding to your book.
The flirty ruffles are fun and feminine. I will probably do another one later on in a lighter weight yarn for a more 'summery' feel.
"Phoebe Jane" vest
The fabulous vest by Jenny King works up so easily and quickly. I started it barely a week ago and will finish it today.
I love the raspberry Sublime Cashmere yarn - it's so soft and it's washable. I will post pictures of the finished product in a day or two.
Thanks to Mary at Yarns, Etc. in Chapel Hill for helping me choose the best (& yummiest) yarn for this project.
My second published pattern will be available next month in Interweave Crochet. I'm so excited to realize that I CAN create new patterns and someone wants to put it in a publication.
Like many of you, I have made stuff up and created LOTS of things over the years. It wasn't until very recently a friend suggested I send a new creation of mine in for consideration for an accessories issue. I was stunned and amazed that it was accepted. Of course this just increased my desire to do more!
I have several ideas on the table and hope to get more things published in craft magazines. I will also be making some of my original designs available on my website. A couple of which are available for FREE download already.
This is my first blog post. I'm new to this - so bear with me as I travel through the shperes of cyberspace with my thoughts, ideas, and daydreams of crochet.
There maybe a sprinkling of random stuff here and there - but my goal is to stay oriented to the craft on this blog.
Keep your hooks movin'..... J
