What I've been up to...

       Since my last post my family has South Dakota! Why? Would I ever move there?? Well...My Husband started working near the oil fields and me not willing to move to that area the west side of SD was my what use to be a 15 hour drive for him to come home is now a 6 hour drive! He's able to come home almost every weekend which is awesome!! So far I don't mind this area at all..the winter has been mild and the temps fluctuate like crazy! 30's last week 60's this week! We live in the country just outside of a small town that is just outside of Rapid City-if you've never heard of this place It's where Mt. Rushmore is ;)

       With having a clingy and needy baby (he's 20 months old now but busy as they come!!) I took a break from crocheting and aside from photographing my nieces wedding this past summer I haven't pursued photography in our new town either. :(  but I have started crocheting again and it's been fun! I've even started a photo album on my Facebook page with ready made items for sell! I'm planning to continuously add to that album...check it out if you get a chance! Couture unraveled 
Here's a few pictures of things I've made! And with that I bid you adieu ;)

I love these slipper boots! They are THE best I've ever made! The pattern is easy to follow and...gulp...they actually stay on your feet!!!! Imagine that! Here's a linkto purchase the pattern...if you'd like me to make them for you shoot me an email
God Bless!!

Crochet girl newborn pant and bonnet set~spring time baby!!!

I just noticed the other day that all the tulips planted here at our rental home are awakening!! 

I was shocked and it was that one thing that got me realizing spring really is here!!!! Yahoo!!! I love spring! Mostly because its the season right before summer which is my favorite season of all!!! It could also be because I'm due with a baby boy June 12th and with the arrival of spring, I'm getting really close to meeting this little guy!! ;)

So...since I was feeling spring-y I decided to make a newborn girl pant and bonnet set in cream and yellow....for me, yellow is like the ultimate spring color! So refreshing and clean and pretty!! ;)

The pants pattern I  purchased from DaddyMackHats on Etsy
She sells the pants pattern along with already made ones....they are super cute and the pattern is very easy to follow!! I would highly recommend purchasing this pattern!!

The bonnet pattern is from Crochetlatte and it is free!!! I love it! Pattern is super easy to follow and the finished bonnet is super adorable!! 

I hope everyone is having a great week and that spring is on its way wherever you are!!
