Hello, and welcome.
I would like to inform you that I AM MOVING.
...well, sort of. I have started a new blog, Oui Crochet, that focuses just on crochet, crochet patterns, and crochet resources. I am in the process of building it up as a one stop shop for all things crochet, and I am very excited about it. I hope you will come over and check out my progress. :)
I will be moving my patterns from this site, to my new site. My idea is to leave this site active, so that you can still access other aspects of this site. I will also leave a modified "introduction" post where each pattern is on this site, as to keep all links active and make it so that you can easily locate the pattern's new home. As an added bonus, you will also find new printable/downloadable versions of my patterns.
I apologize for any inconvenience, but I assure you, this change is a positive one. I look forward to seeing you at Oui Crochet.
Happy Crocheting!

The Sunshine Award

I was very excited to learn that Jessica from The Thriftiness Miss nominated me for the Sunshine Award! Thank you so much Jessica! If you haven't been to her blog yet, you should totally check it out! I mean come on... a Diaper Motorcycle for a baby shower gift? What's not to love? And you have to see her Scrappy Flip Flop Refashion! My girls and I are already planning on making some!

Oh, and did I mention....???
Jessica is going to be Guest Hosting my Super Link Party this week!!! How awesome is that? I now I'm excited about it!

The Sunshine Award


The Sunshine Award is given from bloggers to bloggers.  It’s for someone “who positively and creatively inspire others in the blogosphere." 

Okay, so here's how the award works.
First, you should thank the person who gave you the award and link back to them.
Next, answer the following questions about yourself.
Then, choose 10 of your favorite bloggers and link their blogs to your post.  Be sure to let them know that you are nominating them for the award.
Last, be sure to copy and paste the award to your blog!

The questions: 
1.  Favorite color- Simple answer is blue, but I love many different shades, as well as greens and purples.
2.  Favorite animal-  Gosh... I really don't know. I think tigers are really cool animals... and I like dogs. Not sure I really have a favorite, though.
3.  Favorite number-  I like 7. :-)
4.  Favorite Drink-  Iced water. Really. I love water! Second would be tea.
5.  Facebook or Twitter-  Considering I spend waaaay too much time on Facebook and I haven't logged into my Twitter account in days... I'd have to say Facebook.
6.  Good book or good movie-  Definitely good movie! I am too easily distracted to read an entire book!
8.  Giving or getting gifts-  Giving. Definitely!
7.  My passion-  This one is easy- My family!
9.  Favorite day-  Any day that I can relax and just spend some low-key time with my family.
10.  Favorite flower-  That would have to be a Sunflower!
