One Year!!! Thanks!!! WIPs!!!

Thank you for stopping by!
I can not believe its been a year since ive started this blog... 
I have greatly enjoyed it all!

Ive had some ups and some downs on hopes of opening a shop online
which i did but, sadly i havent had enough stuff to put there, so its been bare..

I wanted to show you all what i have been working on project wise..

My only niece's bday is at the beginning of august, and she is a missy priss.. 
I loves her so much.. so while visiting, i thought of this project, 
which i had made a little bit ago...

A quilled tiara!
googled some pics, and this is what i came up with while watching tv late one night. 
may re work it differently and post pattern on here. :)

I have a few things that need to be done within the next few weeks.. 

Here is a picture of a welders cap in progress..
the first one i sent to my cousin fit him nicely and it was well received.. so this one will be reversible for him
i am using what fabrics i have laying around that i know for sure are 100% cotton, 
after this hat, probably will buy more fabric for him.. :)

Next, I am working on crocheting a Tigger for my SIL moms bday..
but just recently started tonight, due to our local Walmart being out of orange yarn i needed..
finally went to hobby lobby to get it.. sucks having only 2 places to get yarn around here...

My mom has a few customers that come into the restraunt.. and they had a litttle boy last
year born on her birthday, Sept 13th.. and she wanted something special to give him..
He likes monkeys.. so i am making a green/brown monkey!!
Working on head and then body, then i will assemble and be done!!

And finally, something i said i would never do.. but i am doing..
working with shasay yarn.. and making a ruffled scarf for my mothers bday.
Last christmas, she seen a few women with ruffled scarfs and loved them.. well a few weeks ago
i happen to run across the yarn at a steal of a deal $1 a skein.. (yes!!!) and i couldnt refuse..
so, i am attempting to knit one.. if it doesnt come out like i hope.. i will then try to crochet one..
its slow go..
Ok, thats it for projects at the moment, is it enough?

last but not least, a few pictures hubby took for me with his camera (way better than mine)
for me!!!

We took these as we were leaving out the road we live on..
a good thing too, not long after, the all wilted and turned brown!

I love this next picture, and it shows how special i am to my hubby!!
He HATES spiders! and yet,
when i couldnt get a good picture, volunteer to take one for me!!
look how close it is!!!
I have an obsessive need to have pictures of everything in nature!!
it doesnt matter what, besides, isnt he colorful?

Thanks so much for stopping by and reading!!
I hope that ya'll continue on me with my journey of crafting.
Feel free to comment or request to see certain craftiness!
