What's Up??

Just thought I'd check in with you all. Not much crocheting going on. Every time I start something, I don't end up finishing it. I have so many WIPs sitting around here that it is unbelievable. I always think I want to do a big project, but then once I start it, I lose interest fast and have to work on something smaller. Does that happen to anybody else??? Please tell me it does!

I seem to be more into crafting and sewing lately too. Since this is my crochet blog, I don't post that stuff over here (if you're interested, you can go check it out at my other blog,   I just did a bunch of quick, cheap and easy crafts for July 4th.

Hope everyone is doing well. It is incredibly hot here now, pretty much in the 100s every day, so I'm trying to stay in the A/C as much as I can.

Oh, and since I can't stand posts without pictures, here is a cute little rabbit that visited us the other morning:

Bye for now :)

Baby Dress

I crocheted this baby dress this weekend, just because. I wanted to crochet something, but I didn't want to start a big project.

This actually started because I fell in love with the yarn - I saw it over at Trish' blog here.  I asked her about the yarn and she said she didn't know the brand, she had picked it up at Wal-mart in the baby yarn section. I happened to find it at my local Wal-mart, it is Bernat Softee Baby and the color is called Pyjama Party.

I used a pattern I had used before, only a different variation on it. It is the Angel Wings Pinafore pattern by Maxine Gonser, but Suzetta at Susie's Stuff re-worked the pattern so that it is worked in the round. I really loved it, will definitely use it again. The pattern can be found here.
