Life Happens

I know long time no post….so much has happened since I last posted!  From my son’s baseball, end of school stuff and work? OH and can we add surgery in that mix! Yes LOTS going on! BUT have to say lots of great things happening too! So I’m posting the news!

So in San Clemente, Ca. they have an Outlet Mall which I’ve seen since they started building it! My friend’s friend opened a Consignment Store there! Yes I’ve got some items in there and there are LOTS of great Vendors too! Opening weekend was July 15th and it was just awesome! Such talent from these local vendors and the store is “Gift Boutique & Home Decor”.  There are some paintings that I’ll get photos of as they are absolutely STUNNING!!  If you are in the area you’ve got to stop by and check it out! After all it is Christmas in July!

So as you can see this is another thing that has been keeping me busy! I did get a Custom Order for a Blanket which I’m almost done with. Had to give my hand a rest!  I’ll share that when I’m done with it!

What’s been on my Hook

Hey all! So it’s been crazy busy over here. I’ve been getting ready for a Craft Fair I’ll be in very soon and time is just ticking away!  Plus I’m really looking forward to seeing my Daughter and Son-In-Law in a few weeks!!  Looking forward to that!

MermaidOn to what I’ve been working on –

SO I’ve been seeing all these GORGEOUS Mermaid Blankets in a variety of colors and finally I broke down and made one!

 

 

Mermaid 1
I absolutely LOVE how this came out!  So as you see mine is Black & Grey well I’m representing “Ursula” which most know is from the “Little Mermaid”.

I had a lot of this yarn and well that’s the first thing that popped into my head!  So right away I thought I’ve got to do the Evil Mermaid! LOL!

Extremely happy with how it turned out! Below in the next picture is the back of it.  So you see how to get into it! Talk about warm & cozy???

 

Mermaid 2What do you think?  I know I’m for sure going be making more!  In colors of course!  With the Holiday’s just around the  corner these would make GREAT gifts!  If you are interested I will take orders.   I’ll be adding to my Etsy Shop very soon!

If you are a crocheter looking for this pattern you can find it HERE!  It’s a great pattern and super easy to work up! Questions? Please comment here!

As always thanks for stopping by and Happy Craftin’,
