Reunited

I was reunited with my crochet bag this weekend.  Tiger Daddy inadvertently left it has his mother's house before we went to Reno in an attempt to be more space efficient.  So all of last week I had to fight the urge to buy some new hooks and yarn.  I knew that we would be visiting again this weekend to celebrate Tiger Daddy's grandmother's birthday, so I could not rationalize buying new equipment and yarn.

Since being reunited with my crochet bag I worked on some of Easy's Easter Eggs and Measured by the Heart's spring flowers:



 The eggs are for Nana Bear's class and hopefully I'll make plenty for the family as well.



The spring flowers are being sewn onto ponytail holders.  I had made a few just before vacation and gave them to Nana Bear and the Wild L's daughters, Red and Sosie.  I was afraid they might be too big in proportion to the girls' heads, but they looked fine.

My eggs don't hold a candle to Easy's, but I'm happy with them.  Dare Bear is very fond of them.  This afternoon he spent rolling them around his in little yellow school bus and squeezing them in and out of the door.  I think I'm going to invest in some yellow yarn and a multicolor yarn that is more suited for boys.

Tiger Daddy and I have been once again pondering my opening of an Etsy shop.  The problem is I need to finish some salable product.  I think I am going to start with my hand warmers and maybe some of the ponytail holders... I also need to start pricing.  Fingers crossed that we open shop in the next couple of months.
