new trend? c2c crochet graphgan...

Hello to all!

I was looking around on Ravelry for a few baby gift ideas and patterns, while surfing I came across some cute blankets with pictures in them. I have made quite a few myself over the years, but I kept seeing c2c in the pattern name or description... I had no idea what it meant. I had to look! These blankets were so cute and had a lovely texture to them. Here is a great video explaining how to crochet Corner 2 Corner while following a graph.


I had to give this a try! I've made these 'graphagans' before by using single crochet with color changes, single crochet with cross stitch (least fave) and Tunisian crochet (fave!)... So I went searching for charts, graphs, c2c. But the best I found was under pixel art and 8 bit!

Here was my try....it was quite advance considering the color changes...

Here is my block: 4.00mm hook and ww yarn 6.5 in
Omg! The ends, look at my wip!



But.. My son loved it! I was thrilled with the texture and how fast it worked up while being to…

too much dental? and eric art challenge!

Hello to all! I hope you have had a wonderful week. Another one gone, many more to come.

I'm a dental assistant, I really think it's my calling.. I love anything toothy...anything... I found a pin on Pinterest, while looking for ideas to create crochet applique patterns... They were teeth drawn as superhero... Superman, Batman. Iron man. Etc... So... I quickly And cutely doodles my own version, grabbed yarn and needle...

I need to take a few more shots.. Give him an all out photoshoot. I admitt, sadly... He doesn't look much toothy... But.. He is so cute, cha?

I do have the pattern typed... Ready for testers then release... Should I do anymore like this or just go on to my next applique ideas?

While in town this weekend, it was rainy cold weather but before my trip was over, look what I was blessed to see....

 And leaving out the other side of parking lot, this was also breath taking.....

 It was so amazingly beautiful. That's what I'm leaving off with for this wee…

new year 2018!

Hello to all! Yes, I'm still here! Even if I haven't been here on my blog. Sorry about wasting your time checking in and no updates in so long! Life has changed so much since I've started the blogging adventure! I used to be a SAHM and yes we are busy to, but I always found time for crafting and submitting. I went to school to better my family, graduated and fell in LOVE with my career. Yes, career and not just a job. I am a Certified Dental Assistant! Everyday is filled to helping patients, helping other staff and learning! This year I have really started off self thinking and aweareness about little things I need and want to change for me and my family. It is really hard to do things for myself, but since I'm recovering from a minor procedure, I realize I have to take care of my health or I'm not good for my family or anybody else. I've started little things, writing in a cute daily planner I received from my mom. Writing days out in advance, planning to do l…

Sad way to finish Jan 2017 into Feb

Hello to all, The last week of January has been unexpected... I lost my grandfather. My moms father. I called him Pepa. 
I had some really good memories growing up  to remember. We werent as close when i grew up, I kinda went off and did my own thing Now, looking back, i wish some things were different, maybe i should have tried a little harder, but hindsight shows nothing that can be changed.
I can not believe a man, so tall, strong and bullheaded can fall so fast and leave in a blink of an eye. Death of a love one opens and test beliefs that one may have I am glad that he is not suffering and may he rest in peace.
I did make his wife, an angel, but during the grief process,  i had completely forgot to take a photo. I did make my first bigger ribbon rose using a tutorial on youtube for it. All the prayer angels i make come from the heart and grief i feel. No angels are ever the same.. 
I have had a few things i was working on during this time: ^ I colored this with sharpie markers! …
