Crafting Update Time!!

Well, it's been a crazy 2011 so far!  Especially with work, so I've been turning to crafting A LOT!  I've been both crocheting and's a look at what I've been up to!!

Some baby shower gifts for my friends Amy and Enrique from PT school, daddy to be is a big 'CANES fan like me so I was all to happy to bust out the orange and green!  My first attempt at a fleece blanket with satin ribbon binding, a UM burp cloth to match, and a green and brown minkee burp cloth for the mamma!

A window valence for my living room sliders with the help of my amazing mother, who once owned an upholstery of the century too, I believe I got the fabric 50% off at Joann's plus an additional 20%!!  I also have enough left to make some throw pillows...and just in case I picked up a one yard remnant for 40% off regular price, plus an additional 50% off for being a remnant!

I'm also working on a crocheted baby blanket, this is not a quick project, but it is on going, a pattern I found on, a great resource .

Some hats I crocheted for my recent amazing trip to NY where I got to visit some friends, some family and attend a course on pediatric Kinesiotaping, which was as awesome as I'd hoped it'd be!  The blue one came out way more like a babushka than a beenie, but the grey one has a visor and came out pretty awesome!  I also crocheted another visor beenie, but I can't find it right now, and I wanted to get this post up!

Other ongoing projects include a cupcake patchwork tote bag for my aunt in NY who has the grand opening of her bakery, A Cake in Time in NY next weekend, it even has her logo on one of the squares!  Also, a quick baby sweater from Lionbrand yarn , should be done this weekend as well, pics of both to follow!

I think that's all for now, but I'll update again as soon as I finish a few more projects!  I really like having a few quick instant gratification projects and a few long term projects going on at the same time.  I also like having both sewing and crochet projects going as well, I can crochet in bed or on the couch watching TV with the hubs!
