Hello!  It is Tuesday, and we officially have two weeks of Summer vacation left.  Unfortunately, I’m counting down the days.  I will miss Little C, especially since she will be in school full days this year, and I will miss the lazy mornings or afternoons we’d take doing crafts or watching kid shows.  But, I am ready to get back into a schedule.  I feel physically drained.  Last week alone we spent every night out, listening to music in the park, overnight at a hotel, two days at Irish Fest, where Little C danced in front of big crowds.

I am ready for a break.  Plus, I think I’m coming down with something, and my chest feels heavy and achy, not fun.

Okay, enough about me, this blog is about crochet!  Luckily, I have been getting in a lot of crochet time, mostly because I’ve been getting orders, which is great!  My main projects have been the Boho Bag.  Here is the link again, in case any of you want to make one.  Or, if you want to order one, check out the bottom of the post, I’d love to make one for you!

Here is what one satisfied customer shared to FaceBook!

Okay, I was starting to feel guilty that I haven’t made my daughter anything for a while (except breakfast, lunch, dinner, and her bed).  She saw a photo of a pineapple and insisted I make her a keychain for her backpack.  I made this up on the fly, sorry to say, I didn’t write up a pattern.  But, it turned out pretty cute, although she wants me to put a smiley face on it too!

Last year I started this granny square top.  Well, I finally pulled it out and finished it.  I added a border to the bottom and edged the sleeves and neckline.  Once I weave in the ends I will do a photoshoot for you.  It was simple and turned out cute!

I have also had some orders for fingerless gloves.  I have one finished, and one started.  My plan is to have a four week series of fingerless glove patterns.  The posts should start in a few weeks, so keep an eye out!

Lastly, my mom’s freeform purse is almost complete.  I’ve been putting it off because I’m nervous about adding a zipper.  But I will do it this week, so I should have some FO photos next week!

I’m starting to feel better just thinking about all I accomplished this week.  Hope everyone is enjoying the last few weeks of Summer (in the U.S.)  Happy Crocheting!
