Any fishing lovers out there? My mom gave my son these adorable baby fisherman overalls and when I opened the gift all I could think about was how cute some baby photography could be! I decided to whip up a fisherman hat so I search Red Heart’s free patterns to find the perfect one.

It’s getting rather cold now down here in North Carolina…I can’t imagine what it’s like in Green Bay, WI. My friend asked me to make birthday gifts for her 2 year old twin granddaughters that live in Green Bay and happen to be Packer fans. She wanted to give them each a hat, mittens and leg warmers…one set pink, the other purple with Green Bay Packers colors yellow and green accents.
My family and I just moved back to North Carolina from Mississippi a few months ago. It feels so good to be closer to our loved ones! We found a great neighborhood to live in that has all types of clubs to join to get to know people. I got an alert in my email one day for a new group for knitters and crocheters called Stitch for a Cause. I love to crochet and I enjoy making things for special causes so I had to join! The cause we are stitching for through January is for the American Heart Association’s Little Hats, Big Hearts. We’re making red newborn hats to raise awareness for heart disease and defects.
Do you have kids, grandchildren, nieces, and nephews that love dinosaurs? Man my nephew, Chandler, sure does! He even knows how to pronounce a lot of their names…and he’s only 5! I remember learning about them in elementary school and how fascinating they were. Then I saw the first Jurassic Park and was terrified for days. ;)
Do you know any tennis players who are expecting? Want to surprise them with a tennis “set”? Well keep reading for some super cuteness.

What’s your little one going to dress up as for Halloween? If you haven’t decided, maybe this pattern will help seal the deal. ;) My son is crawling all over the place, pulling himself up and occasionally taking a few steps. I thought how cute it would be to crochet him some pants and stitch a monster face on his bottom using Red Heart Reflective yarn. Yall know I love this yarn and infant pants with designs on the bottom are super cute so I just had to try this! Watch what happens when you take a flash photo. ;) Continue reading “Cro-Shayley makes Baby Halloween Monster Pants”
Are you in need of a cover for your laptop, tablet or a similar sized electronic device? I use my laptop quite often, taking it from room to room in my house, using it in the kitchen while cooking, in the living room while crocheting and in my bedroom catching up on emails, paying bills and browsing the web. I decided, since I take full advantage of it’s “wireless” mobility then I should probably make a cover for it (for its safety from my almost-walking 1 year old). ;) Continue reading “Cro-Shayley makes a Laptop Cozy”
