Still Lost? :0)

Well, I guess so, it would seem.

I have been working (a normal, kind of, job). So that has taken me away from my crochet and all things crochet related. My hours have relaxed a lot so maybe I can now crochet again.

I have been working on a few things. I really need to get in gear and get a bunch of hats made. Fall is right around the corner. And FINALLY I ordered some labels for my crochet to sell. They turned out well. I tried to sew them on a few hats with my machine, and that ain't happening! My hats are too thick. So by hand it is.

The top one is sewed by hand, the bottom is sewed on my machine. No brainer. :)

The lighting in this pic made the colors washed out. They are mahogany and coffee, and beautiful and rich looking in person. The yarn is a Lion Brand Wool blend of 20% wool and 80% acrylic and a  #5 weight. It is super thick and warm.

This is my third attempt at my WingedHeart. What say you? :) I love it!
This is currently on my hook. It's a CAL on FB called Wildflower Bag. I love it. It will be lined. I currently am on the straps. I've decided to change it from what she has....rings on either end and one strap. (Does that surprise you?) I am going to do two straps, one on each side. I have the bottom, the straps and the lining to finish it. I'm hoping to sell it, but if not then I will use it. I see another one or two of these in the future. And of course I changed the yarn originally in the pattern to #3 with a D hook. The size it will end up to be will be perfect. Not too small, not too big. The only hard part to this is crocheting with black. My eyes are not what they used to be so it's hard to see the stitches. I'm hoping to have this finished by week end.

So there you have it, what I've been up to. Hopefully your life, since the last time I posted, is full of love and laughter. See you soon!
