It's my cousin Josh's turn at the alter in July (my sister makes her trip next week).
I whipped this up for him and his sweet future Mrs. Using a "Speed Hook" or S Hook (though my brother in law asked me if it was a harpoon)it's double crochet using homespun. I LOVE homespun it is super soft and thick.
I'm half way through a special order blanket right now and I'm so happy my customer understands all the craziness going on right now (new house in 7 days)!

So, I need another craft like I need another hole in my head but here I go!
Embroidery! Once I saw Sublime Stitching I needed to do something http://www.sublimestitching.com/ . Thanks to my wonderful customers my paypal account had swelled a bit and I decided to feed the crafting demon. The patterns they have are so much fun- I went with the rock and roll motif
My goal is to make a onesie or toddler shirt for my nephew before he's to old for one.
Anyone embroider? Anyone have tips?

I've been super busy lately! The hubby and I are working on buying a house- hopefully closing on June 4th (yes, I will get my own craft space). My sister is getting married (June 6th), my grandmother in law turned 90 (heading to Florida on Thursday), and my nephew (Sister in Law's little one) just turned 1 (just got back from NC). Not to mention a ton of work stress.... so alas some of my crafting has suffered.
Currently I'm working on a blanket order and a special order hat. And I'd like to make a blanket for my cousin's wedding in July...but let's not get too crazy.
So, besides the crochet hooks what is helping me stay sane? Reisling and the Sookie Stackhouse Series (the books True Blood is based on). They are like candy and a super easy read.
Pictures of the new casa and some WIPs soon to come :)
