Baby Yoda Hat

Baby Yoda Hat
This pattern was a free one on
Stitch A Yarntastic Life
by Corina
When I made the ears I chained 11
and I made two ears and crocheted
them together!
I was at Micheal's a few days
ago and found this cute
cardboard box suit case...I instantly thought of my daughter because she
loved anything that had to
do with Paris!
So I thought I would put some
of the things I make for the baby inside...
and then when it's full I will give it to her!
I think I need a bigger box!!!

Cute Critter Purse

Cute Critter Purse
I bought this adorable
purse pattern online...this
is one 6...they were designed by
Cindy Harris
When I saw how cute they were I had to make one!
 I plan on making them all and will
post them as I finish!


I just love this cute little curly tail!

 I will try and write out the patterns for both bibs soon!!

I have never made baby booties
 before today...my daughter called me yesterday with wonderful news...her and her husband are going to have a baby...we are all very excited...so I had to make some baby gear...my daughter and her husband both love
Converse High Tops...so I set out to
find a pattern!
I found a wonder blog called

Free Crochet Sun Hat Napkin Rings & Tea Cups Pattern©

Free Crochet Sun Hat Napkin Rings & Tea Cups Pattern©
By Connie Hughes Designs©

Here's one of my 1st Free Patterns.
I was emptying my dish washer a while back and as I was putting my plates away...
When I thought of making some place mats & napkin rings!
I made these little tea cups...
But my favorite are these little hats!
The place mats are one row of single crochet and one row of double crochet, 
then I did a bobble stitch trim.
These little cups & hats are so easy to make...and they really fit with the plates
It's been hard to find napkin rings 
that look right with this set...
Now I can hardly wait to use them!
Free Crochet Sun Hat Napkin Rings & Tea Cups Pattern©

Happy Mother's Day & Poem: My Mothers Love©

In Memory of my beautiful Mother on
Mother's Day!
My 1 of 3 sisters on the left, my Mom and me  
on the right...at Knott's Berry Farm!
(we were the babies)
And Happy Mother's Day to all
the wonderful Mom's out there!

My Mother’s Love©

There is a grave on the side of a hill
It’s so quiet here even the air is still
But a warm soft rain begins to fall
Its been so long that even memories
Are hard to recall
I kneel down on the warm wet grass
Suddenly moments of my life come
Rushing at me so fast
I brush cob webs from the stone that
Bares your name
We are, you and I one in the same
Thank you for this life
Though at times it’s hard to bare
How much it would of helped
If only you could of been there
When I lost you it was like
A long walk in a cold and dark dawn
You want to stop but you keep
Moving on
I had never seen death in any bodies eyes before
How badly it hurts, right down to the core
You understand what the word final means
And all the petty worries, how silly they seem
I know you know that my heart is broken
Because between a mother and daughter
There is a language, though no words are ever spoken
Thank you for the gentle hands that cared for me
So much now I understand, with a woman’s eyes I see
You gave me life with all it’s twist and turns
You taught me lessons I’m sure you thought I’d never learn
You weren’t a perfect person and either am I
But because of your love
You make me want to try.
By Connie Hughes©

'Anchors Aweigh' Pillows©

'Anchors Aweigh' Pillows©
I have enjoyed making these cute
little pillows so much...
and here in the Pacific Northwest it
has been so pretty outside lately!
 It's 80 degrees outside today...
so it really feels like summer
has come early and that just
doesn't happen here...we have
 had snow in April & May...so this is
a wonderful treat!
And nothing says summer like
 a sailboat
and a little sand crab!
This little Anchor pillow is one
of my favorites!
I have been crocheting now everyday
so now I am going on a ride on
my husbands motorcycle!
