More Mini Stockings

Well here's my idea!  Owl Mini Stockings.  It's so full of whimsy and funkiness.  I think definitely someone on my Christmas list will get one of these this year!

Check it out with pom-poms!
It only takes a couple of hours to make one up. 
Well, gotta go...I'll be back with more!


Aren't they cute?

Christmas Crocheting

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!

Almost Done!!

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!

They Just Belong Together...

Don't you think??  I do.  Crocheted pennies, and crocheted roosters, all together with my Rooster Box (I did years ago).  I guess you can see where I got the idea for my rooster ornaments now!

I love crocheting these circles.  Yes, I have a plan for them, you'll see it eventually!!  For now, I will share a couple of pictures.
Oh, the color, it makes me all giddy!!!!
 Good Friday evening to all.  It's time for pizza and movies!

Ruh Roh!

Oh my...I blinged out my little rooster with some buttons and embroidery.  Doesn't he look grand???  Especially against the cocheted pennies I have been doing.  I'm not sure what I am going to do with these pennies yet.  I saw some penny rugs at the craft show this weekend and really was drawn to how "folk arty" they look.  I work on these in the morning when I get up and drinking my tea...such a nice way to start the day!

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

Today I have been chillin' just doing things around the house, and yes, a little crochet time, too!  My jammies have been on all day!  It's fun to do that every once in awhile, and today has been the perfect day for 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.

I like the way the colors turned out, but it is a little too large.  I am going to give it another attempt and change it up a little bit.

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!

A wee rooster, a photo by woolly fabulous on Flickr.
Holy Cow! I came across this gal on flickr...immediately I was hooked. Y'all know how much I love the roosters, and what she has done with him is awesome. I wish I could actually touch him!

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!

Baby Owlies!

 Baby Owlies!!  Aren't they cute???  My hubs actually asked me, why don't you make some baby ones?  I said, OK, and just look.  They are so cute I can't stand it!

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. 

Here is a small group of them.  They look at home in the leaves and the trees.  I think I can honestly say that I have enjoyed making these as much as I have snowmen. 
It's an instant smile! 
I have the pattern roughed out for these, needs some serious tweaking and pictures before it's ready, but you can be looking for it in the next couple weeks. 

 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!
