What I've been up to this week....

Let me start by saying that on Monday afternoon I found myself in extreme pain after coughing.... diagnosis.... cracked rib. NOT fun. As a matter of fact, incredibly painful.

Before that (and after, when I can actually function on the pain meds...) I've been crocheting. All of my ideas have come from various places on the internet... so far I can't seem to come up with my own patterns but I think I may in the future.  =)

So I started with this : 

I'll help you out here... it's a unicorn. It doesn't photograph well but its cute as hell! I made one for each of my girls and they absolutely adore them! They're quick and easy to make, and the pattern was free, which makes me happy!  =)

 The face was all my idea and all my creation. I was quite proud of But there was a problem. I had one adorable pumpkin and four adorable children. I solved that pretty easily....

 There. Kids happy, problem solved. What to do now?

I decided to look around and see what I could come up with. I stumbled upon this: and decided to give it a try! The results were :

It was way too much fun! I really loved doing it. I could have done it all day, but I bore easily. On to the next project, but I didn't know what to do. Some clicking around here led to here and I discovered this This was a MUST do. It's in progress :

So that about covers my recent crochet journey. Kids are doing well... They're loving my crochet journey because they get cool stuff!
