Back Home

Paul and I just returned home from a fabulous trip to Vegas! It was a much needed getaway and gave us a chance to focus on each other and to have some space from Belle. I missed her like crazy, but it was a great chance to come home refreshed and ready to be a better mom.

Now, don't think that I took a break from crocheting! If anything, it was a great chance for me to do what I love without having the responsibility of household chores hanging over my head or putting the crochet hook down to take care of my baby girl. I sat back, relaxed, and hooked away! The flight to Vegas was 3 hours and I sure took advantage. I made a baby cocoon, made up a new hat pattern, and made some headway on some orders I need to complete. My favorite completed project was this number:

I bought this pattern from Angels Chest. She has the cutest things and her patterns are so easy to follow. I am so happy with how this turned out and can't wait to make more in multiple colors! I finished this on Saturday while laying out at the pool. Seriously, does it get any better? Laying in the sun, having a cool drink, and crocheting like a crazy woman!

On another note, remember the pom pom booties and hat I made? Well, look how they turned out when put on a little one. So cute!

Pin It!
