A Crochet retry

Happy Monday!
So I told you in this post that my crocheting adventures has just began......well with a cool headband instruction that I pulled from the internet, I went to Michael's and used my 40% coupon to get me a new yarn and I made a superwide headband.


this was by far so much more fun than my scarf attempt. It was very quick (got done in two days during my tv watching) and I love how the multi colored yarn brought out so much life in this project.


of course there's always room to perfect this. I still have to learn to keep my "gauge" right but I counted this time and learned a few more crochet variations.
Over all I think my interest in crochet is back and it's here to stay.

And before I leave, I wanna share a hhhuuugggeee card (6x12") that I made for a girl at my work that will be expecting a baby soon. We are going to put together a basket for her full of baby items and I'm inserting this card along with everybody's messages.




I used a lot of hodge podge of scraps here. That stamped preggy lady was a leftover from a shower invitation I did a loooonnnnggg time ago.


and a peek of the inside sentiment.

So that's it for now.

Oh, before I go, check out my first blog post at the Clear Scraps blog.

oh, oh, oh and did you notice my new banner? like it? that feet photo is mine. I'm sure if people saw me in my backyard with a tripod directing at my feet they'd think I'm one crazy lady. hehehehehe.

Till next time,
Grace
