Well I'm back home and getting back to work is never easy, even when you like your job and have great co-workers. The day after day of the same old same work just gets me a little tired. I'm my day dream I'm a professional crocheter....but I don't think I could make a full time living that way. But i'm gonna at least try and make my hobby make a little money. So I've been busy making lots of little shoes, and some little hats and this WIP(below) candy rainbow baby blanket for my newest project, my ETSY shop. It will also be called The Bunny Stahl and will open June 1, 2012. I will only be selling baby items this summer, then come September there will be some adult accessories. I'm also working on fleshing out a some of my own designs and writing up the pattern so I can sell those too.
I've gotten a little behind on my Jan Eaton Square project. Now it's time to get back on track, so in addition to my two a week I'm gonna have to do at least one to two more extra each week, I think I'm about fourteen behind. So these are this weeks, plus a wonderful rainbow one.
I hope you have a lovely week, and till next time..........
Hi everyone, I'm still out in Portland OR till Tuesday. We've been all over the city. But I have to say the day we spent on the coast was great day. Little windy but very pretty.
Also ate at some really great places but my favorite Portland food is
the Portland Cream Donut. It's a custard filled and frosted with maple
frosting. But I did get my hands on some yarn from All About Yarn and from the local Joanns. So I did work on some small projects out of the Crochet Today Baby Magazine (which I think is still on stands since it is a special) I made the little hat and sneakers. And I changed them up to make them watermelon themed. WIP
Still have to add the seeds. Also my sister picked up some yarn for another baby blanket for the Walnut. See the Walnut below.
The popcorns don't show up that good in the picture but I think the blankets gonna be all popcorn at my sister's request. These squares are also from the Jan Eaton Book.
Have to get back to playing with the Walnut.
Love and Stitches,
PS. If you can't follow me via blogger I've set up a facebook page you can 'like' it (don't forget to press the Like button) and you find out when I post at The Bunny Stahl Crochet Creations and when I Etsy store (to come in May).
Hope your all having a Happy Easter or just enjoying a nice Sunday. Above is my lovely nephew Walnut modeling the bunny hat I finished up. It was inspired by the book Knuffle Bunny books. Sorry but no granny squares or WIP this week because I'm 3,000 miles away from CT in Portland OR. I'm going to be here for 10 days. Besides getting to meet the cutest little boy I'm excited to go to all the craft and yarn stores out her. Sorry it's so short after so long, but between planing for the trip and taxes and car drama I've been pretty busy. I'm very happy to be on vacation and will have more up next sunday.
