I'm alive! I promise! And, last week I got mail! Two bags of Stylecraft yarn! I was so excited! :D I'm so excited to try it out! I ordered it with a little of my tax return (what I had left after I put some away for school)  I was initially going to get the Lucy pack, because it's a pretty good deal, but then, I decided I wanted to mix and match my own colors, and so I did!

I got 24 skeins in total. 2 shades each of the colors. 1 orange, and 5 black.

Ruby decided she needed to be first and not the yarn. xD

I haven't decided yet what I'm going to make, but...we'll see soon!

Giveaway day! And other things

Hello everyone!

So today is the 15th and that means that it's time for the GYB Giveaway drawing! So much fun! :D  I listed and then counted all of the comments on the post (and one or two who couldn't find the actual post) And then I used a random number generator to pick the number for me!  I was rather shocked when it picked #1

 And #1 Is Emily C. From Callenders Creations! I will be getting in touch with you later today Emily about your two colors and shipping address, Congrats!!
And thank you to everyone for participating. :D

Right now onto other things! As you can see I have a new addition to my post. The cutest little yarn ball and Crochet hook! I commissioned them from my friend Annette on deviantart, to help her out with a Pet health situation. I just wish I'd been able to help her out more. But aren't they so cute!  There are several moods for both the yarn and the hook so we will see how well I use them, yes?

 Alright now, down to the business of my moodblocks. I'm behind on them, I think roughly two weeks behind. But, I have a cute little notebook I've been using to keep up with my daily moods so I will have the right colors. And I'm also in the process of doing a different style block. I'm having difficulty with the size of the blocks, and while the blocks themselves are rather pretty, they aren't working up heavy enough for what I want in a blanket that I spend so much time on. I only have one block of the new type done but I haven't managed to grab any photo's yet.  But here are the last ones of this style that I've worked on! 

And now what I'm most excited about this week...well, two of the things I'm excited about. Yarn and foam heads! I got my income taxes back last week, and I decided that I needed to go ahead and dive in and buy some new yarn. So, I bought 24 (If I remember correctly) Skeins of Stylecraft yarn from Deramores. And I can hardly wait to get it!! It'll take at least 2 weeks for it to get I'm impatient. But I can't wait to try this yarn, I've heard a lot of good things about it. So we shall see.

As for the foam heads, they are the type of heads that beauty shops use to display wigs on, but they also work perfectly to show off hats. I purchased mine at Sally's beauty supply for just under $5 a piece and they had a sale that day too, buy 2 get 1 free. So I bought 2 and got a free one. And since my mom has been wanting one I gave the extra one to her. I didn't wait to use them I took photo's of the hats I made over the summer, and these heads are so much better models than my Daddy.

So that's all for today. I'm hoping I have more to share with you soon I have several wip's that I'm working on. But it's very slow going because my wrist is hurting rather a lot lately. I severely sprained it in April of last year and it bothers me from time to time ever since. I blame it on all this snow and cold weather! Sheesh it's Almost March! Alabama should not be getting anymore snow! lol

I hope you all have had a blessed week and a good Valentines!

Finished Blanket

What's up everyone!?

Well, Saturday was the baby shower and I managed to finish the blanket just in time to be able to give it away. I did a lot of the work while I was sitting up in the hospital with my mom.
I ended up not doing the granny stripe, mostly because I couldn't, for the life of me remember what size hook I was using. So I frogged it and started over.

Now for some pretties From the shower. :D

My Mom

Has been in the hospital since Monday evening. We're back at home now, all glory and thanks goes to God for that. But I'm very behind on all things internet and crochet so it may take me a few more days to catch up/post anything.

I hope you all are doing well.
