Sunday Share

Hi :)

Hope everyone is having a great weekend. We've spent the day cleaning the house -- it was really overdue! I got a wonderful email from MAKNJ, who shared how she used my "A Day at the Beach" digital scrapping overlay -- aren't the special touches that she added fab? I think the photo of her son is just wonderful, it turned out perfectly! Be sure to check out the rest of MAKNJ's photos on Flickr HERE! Thanks so much for sharing, MAKNJ! :D

If you missed my "A Day at the Beach" overlay freebie, you can snag it here on 4shared.

And speaking of sharing... I finished up a crochet project this weekend that I thought I'd share, too! It's a "Bitty Baby" from the pattern here (and on Ravelry here) by Hannah Kaminsky. It turned out... ok. It doesn't look too bad, but I know where each and every imperfection is and it makes the finished project not feel quite as nice as I was hoping it'd turn out. The pattern itself was fairly easy for a newbie crocheter like myself (just taught myself last week or so) and the hardest part (in my opinion) was stitching it all together at the end -- the head was such a pain to stitch to the body, and I wasn't sure I was really stitching the arms and legs on properly. I'm not very confident that my stitching-things-together skill (yes, that's a real skill) is very good. BUT, here it is anyway. I'll chalk this one up to practice and perhaps try making a few more for some of our friends that have recently had a baby in the past few months or are due in a few months. I think everyone we know has had a baby in the past year or will be having one soon. No, we're not ready yet ;)

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and have a great week <3

Your LO is wonderful. And if that is one of your 1st crochet project for being self taught, consider your self a natural. I have been crochet for 10 year and still cant do that (I can however kit up a storm) Any-who, defiantly keep it up and know-one will notice the oops but you ;)

The overlays are the best, especially for beach photos.

The crochet babies are cute.
