Sad update..

Hi, everyone. I have some sad news to share. I don’t think I’ll be able to make any more crafts for a while. My inspiration has sort of hit a major block.ย  I hope that I can share my creations with you again someday soon.

For now, keep me in your thoughts and prayers. I need them. But before I go, I want to say Thank you to gamer Rya’Kya the Dragon (discord number #9999) . He’s my best friend and has always been an inspiration to me through out the years.ย  All the things you see on here stemmed from his suggestion a couple of years ago. He always has wanted me to expand my horizons and reach out across the net. I’ll always support his endeavors. Please watch him Twitch.tv/x45x.ย Please support my friend in any way. and Please tell him I sent you along in chat or in a whisper. He’s my favorite person. While you watch, let him know that the door is always open and I send my love… ๐Ÿ™‚

See you again someday crafty people.

Happy 2 Year Anniversary

This month marks that two years ago, I started this blog because of a college project. Today, Iโ€™m trying to manage 4 other blogs. It gets confusing sometimes. lol

I still love to post and share stuff here online of my crafts and so much more. I always think and feel I could do more but I donโ€™t ever get the change to do cool videos or anything in particular, but once in a while I love to share with you photos of my crafts.

I thank my followers that do follow me on here and on my social media sites. I appreciate it greatly.

Stay tuned for more awesome crafts in the coming year. Iโ€™m hoping Iโ€™ll be able to do more as I adjust to my teaching job and other things around me.ย ๐Ÿ™‚

See you soon and happy crafting!

The cuteness doesn’t stop

Hi everyone… I’m forwarding you over to my book review site today for an awesome book calledย Dumpling Catsย  by Sarah Sloyer. It is a crochet book and I loved it a ton. It has easy to make patterns and the cats are so cute, you’ll be obsessed with making them. They’d be an gift for Christmas for your cat lover.

Here it is… Source: I can’t take the cuteness!!! =Dย 

Enjoy!!! See you soon everyone!!!

Happy Crafting and Happy Summer!!!

My own little project

Hi, everyone… Busy, busy, busy. I have two classes tonight. Yippee. I love my little friends. Even one invited me “over” for dinner. ๐Ÿ™‚ I wish I could go. ๐Ÿ™‚

Anyway, I wanted to give you an update on my crafting. I’m working on designing my own crochet needle case. I wanted something just for my Longer Tunsian hooks. They need a home. Since I have the needles, I thought why not try to stitch something really cool with the needles.

So far I’m making the item in two pieces. One is the pocket I will sew on. The second section will be the design for the cover. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’d like to make a separate pocket for each item, but so far I’m not sure how to do that without showing the stitching on the pattern. So I’m going to do some research right now on other patterns and how they made their pockets for each needle.

I hope you enjoy this update. Hopefully, I’ll get to post more frequently. It gives me something to look forward and to share with all my fellow crafters.

See you later.

Working on my own pattern

Hi, folks.. I finished the Legend of Zelda bag for my best friend and gamer, x45x. He hasn’t come over to get his presents yet. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ He’s been spending about 8 hours a day streaming all his favorite games. (Find him on Twitch after 4pm everyday) Twitch.tv/x45x

Right now, I got a slight cold, but I thought I’d drop a line or two to tell you about my latest project. Since I made the fore-mentioned bag above, I learned the Tunsian or Afghan crochet stitch. This stitch is awesome, because it is closely related to knitting. I have yet to get the hang of knitting. I tried a few weeks ago, but it was to no avail. ย Anyway, I decided I need to crochet hook case more my long tunsian needles. I’m in the process of learning a few things, but I’m going to make this really pretty case with a flower on it. I’m going to use the normal tunsian stitch, knit-stitch and, possibly the puff stitch for the flowers. I’ve drawn the items on graph paper and trying to see how I can do with this made up pattern. It’s my first made up pattern.

the next thing I’m going to make is my companies mascot, Dino the VIPKID ย dinosaur. I can’t wait to see what to do with him. I’m going to have to really think long and hard how to make him. ๐Ÿ™‚ I guess I can steal parts from Baymax and Yoshi to create him. ๐Ÿ™‚

I’ll try to post my patterns on my Ravelry page soon.

So nice to give you an update on my crafts. See you soon!
