Tested Another One!

Ok, I just sent this out yesterday. It’s going to my Grand Nephew in Florida. The designer I sometimes test for designed this excellent pattern for a little boy. I am horrible at cross stitching, but I did my best! The image is clickable to see it better. The designer is from Crochet Garden.

The yarn I used for this is Bernat Softee Baby in Denim and White, with a little of a blue Caron Simply Soft.

Yup, that is the story of my life! I cannot believe that Sunday was the last (only) time I posted! Already getting off to a great start on this blogging thing!

Anyhoo, I wanted to show off what I made for my daughter! This took me a week to make (mostly evenings) and I must say I am quite proud of myself! (I just noticed that I use way too many “!” in my sentences – note to self – do not become a punctuation fanatic)

This dress I tested for a great designer – You can find her work at Crochet Garden – in fact, my daughter is modeling the exact dress here – the dress is called “Little Maiden Sundress” – the pattern is for sale there, and I have to tell you that it was very simple to make.

I am working on 4 other projects at the same time. As I mentioned in my first post, I was in the middle of designing a top for one of my grand nieces. I actually have 4 grand-nieces that I am crocheting something for – tops made out of the same yarn – Red Heart Super Saver in MultiColor Monet – but different patterns. The ages of the girls are 3.5, 7, 8 and 13 – it’s fun doing this. I have finished two of them, the one for the 3.5 year old, and the one for the 8 year old (I posted in the first post that she was 9, she is really only 8 ) I also have 3 grand-nephews that I am still trying to figure out what to make them.

Ok, that is it for now, I will be posting pictures of the tops I am making later on today. I have to head to work now.
