I hope you are all having a wonderful day and I first want to thank you for stopping by my blog!
Welcome to Crochet Bliss!
I've never been very good at introducing myself on these types of things but I'll do my best for you today!
Guess I'll start off with a few facts, yes? My name is Bliss, and I'm a 23 year old college student. I go to school in Dallas Tx but I live with my family in Alabama. I'm currently taking off a semester to help out my family, and I plan to return to the bustling city life of Dallas in August.
I decided to create this blog at the beginning of the year in part to help me stay motivated in my projects and perhaps connect with other crafters around the world. I was inspired by some friends over at Deviant art who also blog. And since I like to write, and show off the things I make, what better place to do that than a blog?
My main area of crafting is Crochet, though I dabble in embroidery sometimes, I've come to love crochet and what I can create with a simple strand of yarn and a hook. My grandmother taught me how to crochet when I was a kid but I could never really get it so I put it down. Over a year ago, a friend of mine was making a slouchy hat one day, and I kinda decided that I was going to make one too, just to prove that I could. I just wasn't aware of how much I would come to enjoy and love it. And then I started making Amigurumi (Crocheted stuffed animals) And That was all she wrote. :D Now I don't go a day without doing a few stitches on something.
I currently have several W.I.P.s on my hooks and I thought I'd share a couple with you guys.
The first is a wip of a granny stripe blanket that I'm making for my oldest Niece's baby shower next month. I'm loving the way it's turning out already and I've barely started it!.
The next is a corner to corner stitch...I think. My Niece taught it to me but I'm not sure what the actual stitch is called. But it's worked from the corner in an alternating pattern and I really like how it works up. This is really just my practice yarn, I think once I get the stitch down and can handle the decreasing to make it square I'll make a washcloth with it. :D
ce) She's amazingly spoiled and I love her to death. And then there's my baby. Ruby, she's six years old and a grumpy old maid. (Just in case you're confused, she's a mini doxen.) And these two are my girls!

And since I was snapping photo's this afternoon I thought I'd snap a few of my work area and show it off as well. I'm actually rather proud of it, as it took me two days to clean and get it organized in a way that I liked after I got home from school in December. As you'll see I have a love for all things Star Wars, and star Trek, Captian Jack sparrow and The Hobbit. I'm really rather nerdy, and so when I find things that I like from my favorite shows or books I like to put them on my wall of stuff. I think so far that I have a rather nice collection. :D It's not much but it's my space and I love it. ^^
I Hope you've enjoyed this brief tour into my life and work space and I hope you decide to follow me, or come back.
