Future Project- Olivia's Butterfly

I recently found this old blog post with a super cute hat. This will be the next thing I try! I've just got to finish a few things first. I've got a lot of small balls of yarn that will be perfect for small hats for small heads!

Here is the pattern- Vallieskids: Olivia's Butterfly

Crafting, Crafting, One, Two, Three

The summer is drawing to a close. Usually I would be saddened by this, but now I get excited. The end of summer means time to move along. We will spend almost two months this fall traveling to Quartzsite, Arizona for the winter. The trip is only 800 miles or so, but we like to take our time! I'm looking forward to some free time to finish some projects, rockhounding and maybe a couple hot springs.

I always seem to have some sort of craft project going. Right now I have a few things in different stages of completion. 1) A crocheted sweater for me that just needs the edging to be finished. (I'm not sure if I like this sweater. I may tear it out.) It's pictured to the left. 2) Another sweater for me in the same basic design as the other. 3) A crocheted ruffle skirt for my niece that just needs the elastic sewed on and some edging. (I'm not sure why I never finish something before starting something else. I finished this three months ago!) 4) Three different necklaces that need bracelets and earrings made to match. 5) A couple of beaded sun catchers that I just started.

I've also made a few beaded key chains this week. They are really cute, and girly. The key chains also could be used as a zipper pull on backpacks or as rear view mirror ornaments. I'm hoping to make a few more, and list them on Etsy, along with some other jewelry I've already finished, before we leave. During our up coming travel time I'll have lots of time to make things, but I'm not so sure how much internet access I'll have. I hope everyone had a marvelous Labor Day holiday. Happy trails and pleasant crafting!
