Lesa Back On A Roll

Well today I took the time out to crochet. I sat watching Knit and Crochet Today that got me inspired to grab my hook. I had record Knit and Crochet Today on my DVR for the pass couple of weeks so today I finally got to watch them. While watching them I got to finish Nesa bolero it is so cute. Sorry couldn't take the picture with her wearing it she was sleep when I took the picture.

Here it go aint it cute.


It's short sleeves I want to put a sting on the front to help keep it close.

It's done in Red Heart called Lipstick, so love this color yarn so cute.

Also I made 2 newsboy hats for a lady that loved my newsboy caps and asked me to make her two so I whipped up a black and a white one she wanted it in a larger size due to her wearing wigs so I had to work with my increasing but, it came out great. I hope she loves them.

Here goes the black one.



Here goes the white one.



Also wanted to thanks Katrina for my swap gifts. Thanks Katrina for those that don't know for Swap Swap Gals our theme for Feb was "All About Hearts" and I got my All About Hearts swap package.

Here go my pretty heart purse.


Nice crochet hook case and a pretty picture frame.


Thanks Katrina love them all.

Also got some ribbons from my Fairy Godmother from Crochetville. Thanks I will totally put these ribbons to use love ribbons. :)


Also still have to get started on my jacket but, yet to pick the fabric I want.

I have to pick from my black denim or from my blue denim jacket.



Everytime I find a sell on fabric I have to buy it in bulks but, after buying it I then can't make up my mind what to do with it lol crazy huh.

Just want to let everyone know I am back and on a roll again. Have some more crocheting I have to do. Also after reading Ashley blog I also have to catch up with my Ravelry and update my latest projects on there.

Thanks for stopping by everyone take care:) - Custom comment codes for MySpace, Hi5, Friendster and more

Those newsboy caps are soo awesome... Although It makes me a little sad because my Honnie just cut off his locks after 8 years and he used to love big newsboy hats... I threatened to break up with him if he did but it didn't work lol

Can't wait to see your denim jacket!

Cute bolero!
Good for you to go from one project to another, and from crochet to sewing and back...I could only stick to one craft at a time ;)

Look who got their groove back! I'm glad! Your Bolero looks great! Wow that is a lot of fabric. Can't wait to see what you come up with!

Cute bolero! I have a lap blanket WIP with that yarn. A tie would be a nice addition.
The hats are great! I like the brims.
I love your swap gifts from Katrina! The heart vinyl is so cute and and the frame is really pretty. Crochet hook cases are always nice to have around.
Aren't ribbons the best? I was so happy to get some from a FGM.
Can't wait to see what you do with all that fabric!

The bolero is so cute! I really want to make some, but am chicken when it comes to attempting to crochet clothes. I need to just get over it. : } Great hats, too! I love how you just whip stuff up without using a pattern.
