Itty bitty crochet

I cannot believe I was up until 3am crocheting!!  I found a pattern for some cute little booties and I just had to make them.  Whenever I start to crochet or sew I get lost in time. I kept trying different patterns and different yarns because I was so excited to make a cute little bootie, I could not go to bed until I perfected it but it never happened- I could not find my G Hook anywhere??!!! The next closest size was an E Hook and it just wasn't working.

Here is what I came up with, It's not perfect, I was using the wrong size hook so I decided I needed to go to bed considering it was 3am.

I just can't believe how cute these are. I love when they make them with 2 different colors.
The only problem is ..I can't buy a pattern because of my goal of saving money and being on a budget.
  So I'm in search of a free pattern, and this one is actually a free pattern on

I'm putting the baby booties on hold for a bit.
I did whip up these adult size slippers.

They are put together in no time at all...Maybe an hour? I'll have to time it.
See my original post for pattern info.

And while taking a picture of my finished projects my dog decided he wanted his pictures taken! He came and layed right in front of the camera.
LOL, I love him!

Get a Hobby!

Hobbies help you improve your mental health and well being because  you're engaging the creative network in your brain, you are challenging you mind and keeping it sharp. Its also a stress reduction. When you concentrate on your hobby it is clearing your mind of other distractions. It makes you happy! It makes you interesting!

Your First Sewing Machine!

2020 has been a great year for sewing machine sales! Joanne's can't seem to keep them in stock. People making masks as well as others picking up new hobbies due to quarantine and with Christmas around the corner this might even be on your list! So are you looking to buy a sewing machine? If you are in the market for a new Sewing machine you might be a bit perplexed with all the different features. In fact sewing machines range from $100 up to..well there are some in the $12,000 range! So I'm going to keep it simple and share 3 key features to look for in your sewing machine investment. 1. Needle up/down feature : This means when you are sewing a project and you stop you can indicate that you want the needle down into the project so your fabric stays in place when you need to pivot or make adjustments to the fabric. 2. Automatic needle threader : this saves time (and frustration) by threading the needle for you. 3. Needle position right to left: This allows you to stitch
