My first attempt at booties!

I am so sorry if you are getting sick of looking at these, but it is a way for me to see if I am making progress. I really do not know what I am doing, I need to consult with someone who does and is willing to critique my work. Please feel free too let me know where I need improvement!!! Thank you so much for your kind words and encouragement it helps me continue to learn:) I am not ready to sell, but etsy is a wonderful place to buy and sell.

Hat Four with Shawl

I wanted to make this shawl that matches the Green hat with flowers. Making the flowers was easy! Putting them together was a bit time consuming so I do not think I will do that again. It is a small shawl but cute:)The patterns for all three can be found here.
I only used 4 colors the pattern asked for 6.
Laying the flowers out before sewing together.

Finished product!!!!

Getting to Know U

We played a game to help our 2 new Beehives get to know all of us. We have another new Beehive coming in next week.

Hat Five Baby!

This one is just sweet:)
I do need to try another one and make sure my stitches are more even next time.

Hat Four

This one fits!!! I am not so sure I like the color though, I think I need a brighter color what do you think? I added the rose colored flower to spice it up. Maybe I should have left it off.

Valentines Flowers

We stayed home this year and had a fun family dinner. French dips and potato salad with heart shaped chocolate cupcakes frosted and decorated. We all got a card. The table was decorated with balloons and Darren brought me a dozen red roses. I forgot to take pictures so you will just have to use your imagination on this one:) Happy Valentines everyone!!!!!

Finished project!

Here is the 3rd hat I attempted to crochet. The first one I will not show anyone! The second one belongs to Jacquie:) This one is the smallest, much to small for me.

Time to learn or re-learn something new!

So as you can see from my last post I have been admiring those cute Crochet hats. Really I have been admiring a lot of handmade things, I guess maybe it is because we had about 2 weeks with lower than normal temps and we were having to wear outer wear to keep warm. That is very unusual here in Summerville. I am happy to say that it is very nice today:)

I learned how to Crochet in grade school, but only a few stitches, so I began to search the web for some guidance (lessons). There are a lot of pages out there!!! Here is one that I found with a lot of helps. I purchased a few hooks, they are not to expensive(2-3$) at Walmart or Hancocks. I already had yarn so I was ready to go.

Here are a few flowers I have learned to make from patterns on the web.

The patterns can be found here and here.

Make sure that if you have not crocheted before or in a long time, that you have more then an hour to spend on learning and experimenting on your project. Most of all enjoy the creative process!!!

New Beginnings 2009

Tonight was our Annual Young Women's "New Beginnings" Program. This year it was centered around the 2009 Mutual Theme and Becoming a "Beehive". We sang the song "Be Thou an Example" by Hillary Abplanalp. One of our talented Laurel's played the cello, it was so pritty.

Groundhog Day!

Photo's from the AP
Every year in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania the length of WINTER is determined by a Ground-Hog named Punxsutawney Phil.

This year Phil saw his shadow and therefore we will be having 6 more weeks of WINTER!

We have decided to have Dinner and a Movie to celebrate this fine winter occasion.

We think we might like to do this everyonce in a while for FHE.

Here is what the weather is like in Summerville today!

Sixty five with showers!
