Crochet Has Taken Over My Life

Well, it's been a LOOOOOOONG time since I have been on here to write a blog.  It was not intentional that I took such a long break, but I feel it was necessary!  I embarked on a new life a couple of months ago and it has taken some major adjusting to figure out a new schedule for myself and my family.  Back in March when I stopped writing, I started up exercising!  It has been fantastic for me.  I started running and doing cardio 3 days a week with a group of girls from my church.  Since I was making a compitment to a healthier me I decided 3 days a week wasn't enough.  I decided 5 days a week was really what I needed to be doing.  So most mornings start out with a hour and a half work out with my friends.  If it isn't the day to work out with them then that means I am grocery shopping or taking my daughter to her dance class.  It has been hard finding the time to do anything I want to do in the creative aspect.  My biggest creative outlet right now being crochet.  It has completely taken over my life.  Let me show you a few of my creations in the crochet department.

So there you have it!  And that is probably only HALF of the crochet stuff I have done.  I found that after I had a basic knowledge of hats and how to make them, it was really easy to create the different character hats.  Most of those I just made them up as I went a long.  So I would say about half of what you see is from a pattern.  Either one I bought on easy or a free pattern I found on line.  Then the second half was just made up because someone asked me to make them a certain hat like the Brobee one and the Ninjago hat.

Any ways, I just LOVE crochet and creating things!  I still love to sew, it has just taken to the back burner for now.  :)  I am hoping to try really hard to update more.  The first couple of post I am sure will all be catch up of the things I have been doing since March and probably my sons birthday party that is coming up.

Hope everyone has a great day!
