Moogly's Bee Pattern Roundup

I was contacted by Moogly's creator, Tamara Kelly, asking if she could use my patterns on her blog this week. Of course I said YES! I absolutely love her pattern roundups and her personal patterns so it is an honor to be a part of her roundup this week. Her roundup this week is called It's the Bee's Knees: The Buzz on 10 Free Bee Crochet Patterns and it has 10 free bumblebee patterns and 2 of which are mine. Go check out the bee patterns and her blog and like her on Facebook! It is awesome!

THANK YOU MOOGLY!! :)

Blessed be the Lord God, the God of Israel, Who only does wondrous things! ~Psalms 72:18

I'M BACK!!!!

I know I have been gone for quite a few months but I have had multiple things happen in the months I was gone. My husband deployed for 6 months and I found out I was pregnant about a month before he left, I began classes in pursuit of my degree, and our best friend moved to another base in Texas. While he was gone I stayed with my parents in GA and spent time with them and my fabulous grandparents. I love my parents and grandparents and having that extra time with them for those 6 months was priceless! Family comes first in my book :) The Thursday before the weekend of my 2 baby showers, my husband came home. We were able to enjoy 1 1/2 months of getting things together for the baby and spending quality time together before our munchkin came into the world.





The night my husband got home :)


Our sweet baby girl Emelyn :)










 I crocheted a few things during my busy summer. I will post a few pictures of some of the things I made.




 Tenneesee Crochet Edged Blanket and Smokey Lovey

I made a crochet edged fleece blanket for a friend and had a little left over so I made a Smokey Lovey using Repeat Crafter Me's Puppy Dog Lovey Blanket Pattern.



















Rivalry Day Headbands

For the yearly rivalry games I made our munchkin headbands with our favorite teams. My husband is an Ohio State fan and I am a GA Tech fan. I think she looks better in yellow ;)

I used Boomer Beanies Miss Priss Headband pattern for the band only. The flower is one layer of the Big Crochet Rose pattern by JT Creations.


















  Skinny Pink Headband

I made her a little pink headband and the corner to corner blanket she is laying on. The edging of the C2C blanket is a cute little ruffle to make it more girly. It matches her room perfectly.


The headband is just a simple chain to the length I needed and the flowers are from Daisy Cottage Designs Tiny Little Crochet Flower Hair Clip pattern.






 4 Braid Cowl

 I made this cowl as a Christmas gift along with a ear warmer for my aunt. She absolutely loved it. The colors were perfect since she is a UGA fan.

No pattern! I will write it out when I get a free minute :)






Winter Hats


I also made her some hats. We made a trip up to Ohio to visit my husbands family and the hats came in handy. The picture of her and myself was actually taken at our home in SC. It was her first snow. We had about 1 1/2 - 2 inches that week and about an inch the next week.

**Hat patterns are from Repeat Crafter Me
Zebra Hat
Owl Hat
























Those are just a few projects I have done in the past few months :) Be on the look out for more things to come this year!



The Lord is good to all, and His tender mercies are over all His works. ~Psalm 145:9

Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men. And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross. - Philippians 2:5-8

If the Crown Fits....

WEAR IT!! :) I have been wanting to make a crown for quite some time but couldnt find a pattern I just loved. I'm so glad I waited for the perfect pattern. The pattern I used was from the Little Rays of Sunshine blog. It came out so perfect and was a very very fast pattern to work up (30 mins). Here is the link for the pattern Little Rays of Sunshine Crown Pattern. It is perfect for any little prince or princess and can easily be adapted for larger sizes. Also it is easy to bedazzle it to make it one of a kind. I love how it came out and can't wait to make one for our little prince or princess :)



 
 
I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well. -Psalm 139:14

But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. - 1 Corinthians 15:57

Work Work ALL Week Long!

LuLu's has taken the back burner for the past few months due to me working a full time job but now I'm back!! :) I quit my job and I'm ready to give LuLu's a full time go. I feel I can make more of a difference through LuLu's than I could working at a desk job. If  LuLu's can make a difference in one person's life then it was all worth it. I am so excited make more things to offer and be a light in someone's life. I can't wait to see where the Lord leads LuLu's!



I will praise You, O Lord, with my whole heart, I will tell of all Your marvelous works. I will be glad and rejoice in You; I will sing praise to Your name, O Most High. -Psalms 9:1-2

**Hook-A-Licious**

Lately I have been seeing polymer hook grips but I never saw myself using them because I was comfortable with just a hook. I saw the absolutley adorable hooks that Day by Day Crochet was making and I wanted one. I could've just gotten on her wait list and bought one (which I probably will still do because she is also a military wife and a teacher and I want to show my support) but I decided to try my hand at it. I went to JoAnn's for some fabric and they had polymer clay on sale so I grabbed some to try it . I have multiple hooks lying around the house so I grabbed an extra H hook and went to town. My first one came out cute but the next two came out even better!!





 
 
I will praise the Lord according to His righteousness, And will sing praise to the name of the Lord Most High. -Psalms7:17

Oops I did it AGAIN!

I just couldn't help myself! I found a new cowl pattern and I had to try it. However this one is not just a winter cowl. This one can be worn any time of year which makes it that much better! I had seen a couple patterns for the specific type of cowl but the one that stuck out the most to me was one that I came across on Ravelry. It can be found here on her blog  http://lovemedocrochetshop.blogspot.com/2012/09/how-to-make-chain-loop-cowl.html . It was very simple and came out super cute! Here is mine :)
