Belated Hoppy Easter!



I hope you had a wonderful Easter! Was the Easter Bunny kind to you? Did he leave you all sorts of yummo treats?  He didn’t leave me any but that’s ok. I don’t need them. :o)



I took a bunch of pictures of Miss Bunny but I guess these would be the best 3.  I made her for a co-worker who is due with her 2nd child very shortly.  We had a shower here at the office last week and I wasn’t going to have Miss B done in time so I made her a 3 strand Never Ending Granny in ILTY soft pink, pistachio (pistache is what it says), and soft blue.  I used almost all of the skeins up for the one blankie.

It was hard to get a really good up close picture of it. It’s really pretty though, and softy. I think Miss Charlotte will like it.

Other than these I have been working on hats. (What’s new??) I made another Wingmen hat and a couple of other hats for the doc’s order. I ordered cards last week too. My friend told me that the doc took one of the hats to a local kayak place and they wanted to know where they could get some and that they could probably sell a bunch. So I ordered the cards to look a little bit more professional. We shall see where it leads.  I had talked before about opening an etsy shop but that obviously didn’t happen. It’s still rolling around in my head. I’ve seen some people not do well with theirs so I want to see how the hats do locally before I go through the time and effort to list them there. I searched etsy for hats made like mine and only found one shop that the hats are close to mine with the exception that they are shorter in length than mine are. And he sells them for a little bit more than half of what I sell mine for. 

I may be changing the name of my blog again because I ordered cards in the name of Winged Heart Creations. The reason being is that I don’t want to be limited to crochet only. I dabble in wood burning (my first creative love) and making things from wood so I could list stuff like that as well.

Is it spring yet????  I hope so. Things are blooming. We just finished another round of cold. Hopefully that was the end of winter. Today is rain, as is most of this week here in SE GA I think, according to the weatherman, but that could change too.

May your week be filled with love, laughter and everything wonderful!

Miss Bunny looks adorable with her little flower tail - so cute. I love the granny blanket too - very nice. Good luck on your new venture selling your hats. :)
