Yarn Along:Crochet Basket

I feel so bad right now….I’ve become a pretty terrible blogger lately!
I was a little busy over the weekend!
I went to my parents on Saturday and I only came back Yesterday!
Not much blogging could get done considering I was loving the whole spending time with family thing!
Anyway, am back…
On that note, not much crocheting has been going down over the past week but I still have something to share with you.
{Oh and by the way, I went home with my cute little crochet purse and my mum was so jealous, she pulled out her hook and yarn and started making her own.Feels good to be an inspiration. By the way, she is so gooood}
I have been thinking about organizing my crochet hooks and supplies considering that they can get a little messy all over the house. Knitters and crocheters know what I mean. Once you pull that yarn and the other, and thus hook and the other, and then the thread and needle, it can get pretty messy.
So, I decided to make a small basket for my hooks and needles and some yarn.

 I love it already and has been a huge help. Am even thinking of making a bigger one as soon as I get some beautiful yarn.

Cute Little Purse

Hi there…
Hope your week is perfect so far and if not..no worries, just two more days.
Have you noticed the changes on my blog?
I would love, love to hear what you think. Any ideas, criticism and comments are welcome.
Moving along, I have been wanting to expand my crochet repertoire..You know…
Its not nice to stay at the beginner phase for too long lest the interest fades
What better place to find inspiration that Pinterest {I swear that place is addictive, once you start, there is no going back]
Anyway, I found this cute little purse and I immediately wanted to make it.

I didn’t have any idea what it would turn out like since am not yet a pro but I gotta say…I think I did a pretty good job. [nothing boosts the ego than blowing your own trumpet, lol]

Jokes aside….This is some of the yarn that Libby sent me and I have been putting it to good use. This video helped a lot as I was able to follow the instructions really nicely. Thank you Yolanda.

Am even making another purse for my sister. I will definitely be making many more for my mom and cousins.

What are you making right now?Are you surprising yourself like me?
Hope so..
