ALYOF - April Finishes

My goal for April was to create something out of this awesome fabric!

The fabric reminds me of the Russian Olympics (lots of pizzaz)
and beautiful colors!

Well I completed my goal and just got it back from the quilter, my wonderful friend, Irene Hensley, (love the hearts),
my only problem is it is not ready to be revealed.

So, here is a corner to prove I made the goal.
I did make something of the fabric and soon all shall be revealed.

Second item I completed this month was making Zoey an Easter dress. If you want an easy pattern that turns out beautiful I highly recommend
the Cottage Mama Party Dress and it is a FREE pattern. Read my post here for more details. I love April Showers fabric but now I just need to make her one for May Flowers! Got any suggestions?

About this time was when everything went crazy - both kids got sick, I threw out my back, and I got sick. I had so much to do!
Flat on my back and miserable.
I even threw a pity party (terrible right)!

First rule of blogging - no negative stuff on your blog. Someone told me that one time and I have tried to live by it. But all my wonderful friends made feel so much better and I even gave a prize!

So, while I was down I did the only thing I could I crocheted!

I love this chunky yarn I bought from
Craftsy - Plymouth Marley Yarn $6.30 (retail price $17.99)

You know how I love things from Italy! One skein makes a kid scarf!

Order (2) they are cheap! I ordered more to make me one!

Every kid needs a scarf in April!
David thought I was crazy!
All ready for Winter!

Thank you for stopping by
Create and be unique!
