It has been a nice Thanksgiving weekend here. After feasting on turkey and dressing, I spent time crocheting, Christmas crocheting! I found this pattern on ravelry and immediately grabbed a hook and some yarn and started. These are so much fun to make!!! It's a free pattern at Le monde de Sucrette. I have also become a fan of her blog...her crochet is off the chain!
Putting together all these bright colors and adding buttons and pom-poms has been a blast. They work up quickly, too! I am thinking about doing a little garland with these, if I can get enough done in time. Seems I can't find enough of it these days to get everything done.
Owlies Pattern Ready!!
I am happy to say I have my Owlie pattern done, and listed in my etsy shop! Thank you to my testers who helped me out with this!!
OMG...I just had a thought of little mini stockings with owls on them!! I can see it! Uh oh...think I have to go work on one!
I hope everyone has a great week!

It's not quite done, but I'm getting there. OMG...I am digging it, too!!! Roosters and pennies all in crochet. I still have a backing to do and something for the corners. But I wanted to share. The rooster is from my rooster pattern, I just crochet the tail instead of chain stitching loops. Makes him look very grand!
Happy Sunday to all! I will most definitely be back this week with more progress pictures!

Hootie pattern is just about ready for testing. It looks like Saturday, when I can get some good pictures to go with it.

Check out the little Owlie and the ornament I did this morning. I think they kind of go together. A Christmas Tree loaded with these would be so cute!
This afternoon I attempted another...not sure how I feel about it yet.
My craft booth was a real success on Saturday. I sold tons of Owlies and scarves. I was very pleased, and very tired when I got home. It's been a week battling a major sinus infection, followed by major antibiotics and a shot or cortisone. I am finally feeling back to normal...I think the medicine actually makes you feel a little worse at first!
So, tomorrow is back to Monday and the normal, not a bad thing I guess. Y'all make it a good week!

Just look at these!!!!! I don't know how she gets those zippers in there. And I love, love, love the embroidery. She does not have a blog, but posts regularly on flickr, and has an etsy shop. OMG...look at that little owlie! She goes by "woollie fabulous, which is the perfect name for her!
Check her out, I hope she inspires y'all as much as she has inspired me!

So my goal this week is to get as many of these done as I can. My craft show is next weekend and I think these will be a hit.
This brisk fall air has got me in the best mood ever. I just love it. The house is all cozied up with fall decorations, afghans on the beds and sofas, candles...it just doesn't get better.
I'm off to put a couple baked potatoes on for supper and crochet up some more owlie babies...y'all have a good week!
