Just off the hook

 If you have been following my blog long, you will know that I am a thready through and through..I love this. This is a pattern of http://bellacrochet.blogspot.com    There are 3 different sets of booties that come with the beanie.  I just happen to prefer these.
I had to find a doll that has a newborn size head just so I could see how the beanie would fit.  Perfect..as long as the baby doesn't have a big head...But the pattern is just sized for newborns..I am going to see if I can add a few stitches here and there to size it for an older infant as we all know they grow so fast.
While looking for a model for this hat...i found a site..can't remember it now, but this woman makes these dolls that look real..I mean they look just like a real baby.  I would love to have one to use as a model, but the price is out of my comfort zone for a doll.  I think maybe I am going to make sets of these and put in my Etsy shop, and for my one show.  

My floor isn't finished yet..before the sealer and enhancer can be put on the grout has to dry or cure for 2 weeks...so my house still isn't back together, soon.    I can walk on it..just can't spill on it.  Now I am a clutz..so I am hoping I can go another week without a problem.  Buddy can't go in there cause the dog hair would be too hard to try and get up.  I sure don't want any dog hair sealed up.

I really don't have much going on...5 more doilies to make for the order of 10, 3 more to make of another..and one Christmas doily and all my stuff will be caught up.  Then I can focus on my show..if this keeps up I won't have much.  My Etsy shop has been busy..more so with special orders than anything else...the thread is moving a little.

For those of you whom are digging out from the storm out east..be safe, keep warm and go grab a hook...To all my blog friends...Blessings and may you always have enough..

I put down the yarn for a while and started on the doily that you are making 10 of. I wish my Etsy shop would take off..I could use the money. I need to add more items. Happy Valentines day.
