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 :)
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
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
