A Back Burner Project Finally Finished

I had been working on this afghan for a long time. It seemed like when i started to work on it, something else would come up. Well i'm happy to say i finished it this morning and listed it in my shop. Would make a great gift!

Challange Accepted!

Three days ago, i received an email: Hi Debbie- Can you make this elf door stop for me and have it to me by the 15th?
 Well i wanted to challenge myself and told her i crochet pretty fast, but was making no promises.... I finished it yesterday, it goes out in the mail today and eta of delivery is the 15th. She is happy and my hook is smoking!






You can purchase the pattern on Raverly by The Left Handed Crocheter  www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/elf-draft-stopper-and-shelf-sitter

The only thing i changed was i used two strands of yarn held together for the legs and body to give it more weight besides adding the poly pellets to the base. I did one strand elsewhere, but in the face, i stuffed a nylon with fiberfill so it wouldn't show as bad through the holes. If i had to do over, i would just do the two yarns together. Otherwise it was an easy pattern. One hint: Mind the difference of back loop and front loop when doing the brim of the hat, sleeves and boot tops.

What's on The Hook?

Here's the new side project i've been working on in between custom orders. It's a granny square patchwork afghan. I'm about 3/4 done with it here. Then i have to weave in any ends that are left and finish the border.

Down, But Not Out

I've been out of the loop for a while. I've been sick with pneumonia. As that weren't enough, hubby and i got into a car accident. Someone ran a light and hit us. It looks like the car will probably be totaled. Thankfully we're ok. Not sure how we'll feel tomorrow. Hopefully not too bruised or banged up. My back shoulder is bothering me a bit tonight.
Anyway, here's our car. We had it less than 1 year.

So other than that i have been trying to get some crocheting done, and i did finish another door snake, but i still have to take pictures of it and post it.
Things can only get better....

I'm Back

Well it's been a pretty busy summer with hurricanes, but i think the worst is just about past us. Hurricane season ends in November, but hurricanes don't always follow the rules.

Since the last post, i came down with a nasty bug, courtesy of my son. I ended up with a slightly different strand than he had. Mine has knocked me down with no energy, but I'm slowly making a come back.

I was trying to make a door snake a day, but this one took me a good week. I hope to get back on track soon.
