I finaly got it

I don't know why, but for some reason this whole granny square thing eluded me. I could never get it to look right. It seems relatively simple, and I can do more complex stitches with a hook, but this darn granny square thing I could never ger right!

Well I think I got it,

I made a quick little pendant for St Patricks day. I love making these little clover shapes. This one only measures about an inch across, and the chain is so delicate. I love it! I only wish I had more vivid green beads to use

it's getting close

My first craft show is fast approaching. Only a few weeks left. I think I'm pretty much ready. Though I don't know how much inventory I should bring with me, it's going to be a pretty small show, but what if a lot of people show up? I'm so excited. If this show does well I hope to do many more in the future.

here's a look at some of the crochet things I've been working on like a mad woman, I even bought a domain name just for the crochet items (which for now links back to the etsy shop I set up for it)

happy valentines day....

a day late

hope everyone had a good one. I know, I know, it's a commercial holiday designed to sell chocolate and all that..but I can't help it. I love it. Even when I was single I always loved the idea of it.

We started the day with a box of chocolate, and tried to go to the Cheesecake Factory for dinner, but there was a two hour wait, so we went to our favorite sushi place instead.

Did I mention before that last week while we were snowed in I got a $97 sale??? My biggest sale ever! And this morning I woke up to another sale. I love it!

This is why I stayed home from work today
as nice as our apartment complex is, snow removal is just not one of their strong points. Several times someone was out shoveling that little sidewalk, but the parking lot has barely been touched. So I can't get my car out to get to work. As much as I hate to have to use another vacation day, it looks like it's shaping out to be a two day snow day since the snow is still coming pretty hard, and our parking lot still hasen't been touched.

I don't know how she does it....

But Peanut just has this way of getting under the covers with just her head sticking out. It looks like someone tucked her in. I've never actualy seen her get under the covers, I just walk in and see her all cute and cozy
