Blue Bow Beanie

I made this Bow Beanie this week, this time in a dusty blue.  I really like the color, it think it will be super pretty on my customer who has blue eyes.  You can see a photo of me wearing it here and here.

 

 

 

I am almost done with my Fall/Halloween Quilt Top!  Can’t wait to show it to you!  Also new crochet pattern on the way and I’m hoping to get caught up on my blocks of the month this weekend, I need to do Sept and Oct!!

Have a wonderful Thursday!

Progress: Binding, Pattern Making, and Crochet!

So I feel like I’m in the middle of a bunch of projects…  I am at the binding stage of my Swoon quilt and since I hand stitch the back, that will take several available evenings to finish up… but I am so excited to be finished at put it up on my guest bed!  (And make some accessory pillows to match… and recover the rocker in there…ah!)  I have some much inspiration and projects on my todo list and not enough time to do them!

 

 

Also, I worked on a commission for a Bow Beanie.  I make these upon request, so I had a request for a charcoal one this week.  Here is a pic of me wearing it ;) I charge $22 plus shipping, so email me if you want one! melaniekham {at} gmail {dot} com.

I am also working on a new crochet pattern.  With fall on it’s way, crochet is such an awesome way to make some fun accessories.  I have a scarf in the works… What do you think of it so far?  Looks like my cell phone pic got a little corrupted coming into my pics!  Oh well, you get the idea.

 

 

So that is what I have been up to!  My little man is having a mini birthday party tomorrow.  Just a few friends and a bounce house!  Happy Friday and have a wonderful weekend!!
