I Am Alive....

PHEW. Sorry I went MIA. First I went back to work (which should be ending soon!) and then we had good ol' Hurricane Isaac wreck havoc on us for a week or so. But we are back home, getting life back together. I have a lot of catching up to do at work, in the business and at home but we're here, safe and sound!

What's new in Mama World? Well, first off, HOW did it get to be SEPTEMBER?? I mean, whaaaat?

Secondly, YEAH ITS SEPTEMBER! That means cooler weather is coming, football and Thanksgiving is just two months away!! I love fall, however short it is here!

I've been trying to create at night after the day job is done, the kids are in bed and the man is occupied. I had hoped to be plunging full on into my business when school started, but this temporary job came up. I knew they needed my help and hey, who doesn't want a few extra coins? :)

So I've been crocheting at night, and FINALLY finished the Mario Granny Square blanket! It's so cute. I still have to edge it and back it with a cotton. Oh and tie off a gazillion strings...

Yes, each "pixel" is one 4 inch granny square. Yes, I am insane, thank you.

I also made this cute little weenie dog. The lovely Scotti at Inner Hooker found it and we could NOT find the pattern anywhere. (Though we truly wish the creator had written one, we SO would've bought it.) So I dabbled a bit with existing amigurumi patterns and came up with Andrew, the Weenie Dog :)

I'm tweaking the pattern more and making it easier and more consistent and working on that, slowly, surely.

I also finished up a pillow cover based on the Summer Garden pattern from Lucy of Attic24. It's lovely and is a great late summer addition to my house :)

What have you been up to? Make sure you do something every day that makes you smile!

You and your creations are adorable :) I love fall as well and am wanting to make a blanket to cleanse my crochet palette (have been working on patterns and sewing collar necklaces as of late) so I appreciate that someone is getting into the yarn for blankets sake! ;) I'm sure I'll get there soon! :) Best, Dawn
