I  love this DIY Foam Soap and Mason Jar Tutorial from Domestically Blissful! Spray painted in one of my favorite colors, and such an easy DIY! Thanks for sharing!

Congratulations to the featured blogs!

More hats, more hats! I'm starting to get the rhythm of making more hats, so I might have another hat update this Friday. In the meantime, more hat pictures!

Two more ribbed crochet hat from my favorite hat pattern from Eating Out Loud. The left one is for my brother in Chile, and the blue one is for a missionary friend in Ukraine. My hats travel!

A tested Mr Mouse Graph Sack Hat, pattern from Creative Threads by Leah.

Lazy summer and hats updates

Links to this post
I don't know what it is about summer. I'd rather be taking mini vacations all summer, exploring all parts of Florida, than being at work right now. Most of the time, I just want to unplug and not worry about the time. Or I just want to stay at home and crochet all the things I've been posting on Pinterest. It's been perfect crochet weather these past few weeks. It's hurricane season, and not a day goes by without a rainstorm. It does bring some amazing clouds though. When it stops raining today I'll try to take a picture.

Knitting has also been another interest of mine, but I haven't picked it up in a long time. I remember seeing my grandmother knit whenever she came to visit us in the states. My mom said I learned about knitting from her, but I don't remember. My father's mother was a great seamstress, so I could see her making these fabulous designs I'd see online. When I started crocheting, both my parents said it reminded them of Abuelita Olga. So I smile every time I pick up my yarn and crochet gifts for my friends.

Speaking of which, I've worked a good 2 months on hats since I posted about it in May. I've wanted to write a weekly post on the hats I've been making, But I'll share what I've completed and where I got the patterns from. Most of the patterns are free.


The first hat I made for this project is this Pith Hat pattern from Red Heart.  

I made this newborn Swirling Leaves newborn beanie following the pattern from Creative Threads by Leah.

 Thing 1 Thing 2 Hats from Repeat Crafter Me. It took me a few weeks to construct these. I was being really picky.
Lastly, the Lady Mary Sun Hat from Danyel Pink Designs (not free). I won this hat pattern from one of her giveaways, and I plan to make a slew of them. They're so cute and perfect for the hot summers.

This week, I've had to make a couple of quick hats, which I haven't been able to take pictures of yet. So I may have a new update by the end of the month. Now to make a few more hats!

Check out what Crafty Allie has been doing! She shared a few easy and inexpensive updates she made to her bathroom. I couldn't decide on which posts, so here's all three! How to Frame a Bathroom Mirror, DIY Spray Paint the Bathroom Faucet, and How I Made my Bathroom Signs.

Congratulations to the featured blogs!



What have I been doing?


I have been without a phone for the past few days, so I don't have any pictures! It's funny how we're so dependent on those things! 

I finished another pattern testing for Creative Thread by Leah. Post coming soon!

Also, I've been meaning to write more posts. I'll be working on some this week. Maybe back to other things like my lack of gardening and the dreaded weight loss journey.

Also working on a men's hat pattern for a missionary friend who is leaving for Ukraine on Thursday, finishing up a newborn pooh hat, and I think I invented a simple newborn hat pattern?
