I was M.I.A. because

Hey Guys!!! Yes I know I was M.I.A for a while. I haven’t post anything on this site for yearrrrrrrssssss lol. Okay some of you have me as a friend on Facebook which means you know the great news! I just had a Baby Boy about 2 months ago. Yes I was pregnant and no a lot of people didn’t know. I loved it that way because, it was less stress on me and I was mainly focus on my family and preparing myself mentally for my Rainbow baby. Three years ago I lost my first Born Jadon and after that I had two miscarriages. So you see how I had to stay calm and happy throughout this pregnancy? The newest addition to the family Elijah Joe King-Cason was born Wednesday September 10, 2014 at 10:29pm weighing 6pds and 5ozs. He’s the highlight of me and my Husband’s day and we couldn’t be more happy. We thank you all for the wonderful support throughout this heartfelt journey for the past three years. Since he sleeps so well at night and naps long on the weekends I can crochet again LOL. I have a new hat pattern (size 0-3months) that I want to type up and record a video for so hopefully I can get around to that soon.

Peace, Love and Live Life Happy!!!!!

What I’ve been Hooking!

So far I’ve been slowing down far as crocheting because I am spending more time catching up with family and friends. I still get crochet orders. So, I will never completely stop “Hooking” lol. Here’s a look at what is off and still on my hook!

 This is call a crochango OVW on Youtube, my sis Marcelle, is the designer of the crochango pattern. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qAJH1Z6abOk I surely hope the customer will be please to get this tomorrow. I always have that nervous feeling that only goes away when the item gets to the person and they say, “I love it.”

This is a crochet set that I made for a customer. The customer wanted a mustard yellow infinity scarf. So I went to get the yarn. And as soon as I could crochet this order, I just picked up my L hook and double the strand of yarn and went the crocheting! No pattern what so ever! I had enough to make this cute head warmer too!

However, I’m trying to be more patient and my goal is to make 5 Blankets before this year ends. So Far, I’ve done one blanket and I have 2 on the hook and one I will start next weekend. So here’s the one I’ve made for myself!

Pattern Review

This is my first time doing a pattern review. I wanted to start buying one or two crochet pattern a month and review them on here to share with whoever is reading this blog lol. And I will grade the patterns base on price, how easy it was to read the pattern and so on and so on. So let me get started on the review.

I wanted to do a pattern review on these crochet slippers.

The pattern is By EVASSTUDIO the Pattern can be found here. However,  the second pair I crocheted, I added a bow and made them non slip slippers by adding fabric glue on the bottom.

The price was very reasonable. The pattern was very easy to follow. I was done making both pairs of slippers within 2 1/2 Hours. I love it! The pattern is a pdf file and I will be making more and buying more patterns from her very soon. This Pattern gets an A!

 

Peace, Love and Happy Crocheting! God Bless!
