Free Pattern Giveaway!!

Today is the last day of school for us, and the beginning of summer vacation starting this afternoon!! I wait all year for summer, and am looking forward to a fun one! With that, I thought it would be a nice day to do a Free Pattern Giveaway in celebration of the start of summer vacation. :-)

To enter the drawing, post me a note letting me know what your fun plans are for this summer. I'd love to hear about it! This evening I will draw a name and the winner will be able to choose a free pattern of their choice from my shops.

I've been adding quite a few new patterns lately, so stop by and take a look. I've also added a few new patterns to my "free patterns" page, and plan on adding more in the coming weeks, so take a browse at those too. :-)

Looking forward to seeing your posts/entries! Good luck!

We are moving in a couple of weeks, so once we get unpacked and settled in there are going to be a lot of lazy days spent relaxing :)

Summer Fun

We are starting the summer off with heading across the country to the East Coast to visit my family. After that we hope to be able to head to LA and Hollywood to see the sights and do touristy stuff. Then some times at the end of July we will head south to San Diego and check out Legoland! I am sure both my husband and our girls will love it there! They all LOVE playing with legos/duplo. All of these road trips mean that I will be bringing my crochet projects with me. :)

I am looking forward to a whole lot of time spent at the lake house. Nothing better than sun and water and my family !

Summer excitement!

This summer is big for us. We are trying to finish our yard so we can have grass for our 2 year old. We are hoping to go on a road trip to some fun family spots, with camping almost every weekend (my prime crochet time!) AND We have a baby due in October so we are trying to get ready for baby (more crochet projects!!)


We are going to take our kids to Texas this weekend to see family and to Indiana to see the other side of our family over the 4th. Then we are ending the summer with a little vacation with three other families

Summer fun

For fun this summer we are....having a BABY:)

No Vacation, But Plenty of Visitors!

We live on the North Fork of Long Island, and we look forward to summer so much that we don't want to go away! We have plenty of beaches nearby, access to boating, camping, and all kinds of summer fun activities, like peach and berry picking, farmers markets, shopping at designer outlets, going to the raceway, the zoo, or the water's all close by. Family and friends like to come to visit us in the summer, so we plan on showing all of our house guests a good time all summer long. My little girl is turning two in July, so we will do something fun to celebrate...not sure what just yet! I'm looking forward to a lot of crochet time as well, and getting ahead on making gifts for everyone for the holidays, and maybe a few fun things for the beach and the house :)

Life changing summer!

I plan to finish a quick summer term at the college just in time to have a baby for my sister-in-law in August! She's waited 6 years to have a baby and I'm so excited to have had the opportunity to carry him for her and to get to be one of the first to meet her son!! This has been and will be the most eventful summer of my life :)


I am a high school art teacher so in one week from tomorrow I turned in a SAHM!!! I look forward to spending my summer with my boys!!!

Spend quality time with my granddaughter

I will be watching my 10 year old granddaughter this summer. My daughter is going through a divorce and can really use my help. I love spending time with Ashley. I am trying to teach her crocheting. She is getting there and doing well for a 10 year old. We have made lip gloss together as well as soap. We both love crafting.

Good Times!

We made a "Wall of Fun" in our kitchen using gifts tags and yarn. On the tags we all wrote something fun we want to do this it ranges from going to the library to hitting the beach and camping out in the backyard. So much fun to be had!

Too hard to find what you are posting

Your blog pictures AND patterns are too hard to navigate as couldn't even find them. went around in circles so I don't think I'd come back here to look. You need to change your navigation options. Just link after link and that is it.
