My Handsome Man

My Fiance, all the way to the left. He is so handsome! The Geek Squad was doing a promotion at the Sex and The City Premiere

Update Busy :)

Ok, so last night, mom and I had to go to the grocery store at 9 pm to get ready for our guests. Then, as soon as I got home, I made two desserts (my part of the dinner) right away so that I didn't have to make it today (Friday). Then, I went to bed.

Today, I dealt with the bridesmaid dress thing (wrong size, had to get another one, had to get a recipt faxed etc) Got two pairs of shoe (I am a shoe hog...but one is silvery flats to wear after the wedding ceremony so I can dance/walk and the other is black 1/2 inch wedged shoes for when I go to the bachelorette party) That is going to be an interesting party to say the least. LOL

Then, I went to the grocery store for last minute items, came home, straighten up my room, vacuumed and then watered my garden. They are coming over at 7:30pm so I have some time to relax now :) Talk to you all later!

BTW, check out my button collection! I just added a new one! My friend from Crochetville and CrochetBandits!

Ok, so we knew that my aunt and uncle (and their inlaws) were coming sometime this week. We thought on Saturday. They just called and said they are coming TOMORROW! AHHHH On quick scramble now trying to get everything ready. Plus, one of the bridesmaids for a wedding I am attending, her dress doesn't fit! I had to help her quick get another dress. The wedding is coming up really fast too. Gotta go! Bye

Crochet Bytes Store!

I started a small business in November called Crochet Bytes. It had been mainly word of mouth and I have been selling a few items.

But Now! I finally made an official site for Crochet Bytes!

Please visit and comment! I will be adding things to sell (all handmade by me) as I get them made. I hope you like them!

This is My Store's Button

Bridal Set Completed

Here is what I am giving to my friend for her Bridal Shower :) I really loved making these! The pattern for the garter is from but the rose is my own design (the same from my icon) I also found a beautiful photo frame that I am going to include in the gift :)<br />I am going to make another garter for her a bit later (one to toss, one to keep)

This month has been really busy with graduations and wedding. Here are two items I made as gifts. They are handkerchiefs I made.
First I cut a square of fabric, punched holes into the edges with my edgerydoo and then crochet the edges. Both edges are my own design. The purple edged one is for my cousin's graduation and the blue edged one is a bridal shower gift for my friend. I am also making her a garter and I will post it when I am done.

Day 2

First day went well. Not to busy. I went home and we (my fiance and his roommate) went to the Chipshop in Brooklyn for some English Pub Food. Yum...I had shephard's pie and treacle with custard...and haggis LOL.

We watched the movies at home and then I went to sleep. Very stuffy. This morning I was a bit better. Got a little lost on the way to work but I made it (subway stairs got confusing). Just sitting here trying to cool off and off to start another day of work.

my finance leaves for Minnesota today and won't be back until Saturday. I hope he is here before I have to leave. Anyways, have a good day everyone!

First day on the job

So far so good. I don't have a fever anymore. Still stuffy but functional. I am at my friend's office right now and ready to start the day.

I am sick :(

Well, my slight cough for three days turned into full blown sick today with a grand temperature of 101.5F My fiance is taking care of me. I hope this does't interfere with my job tomorrow. After about 2 hours, it was down to 100F

If anything, I can do the job from here with a cell phone but this sucks because I am exhausted and I can barely type right now :P and my eyes burn. I am going to lie down now.


I will be away

I will be away from today, Sunday, May 4th to Saturday, May 10th so I may not be able to post or update this blog. You can email me but I may not be able to email. I will do my best. See you in a week.

My first edgerydoo!

A good friend of mine surprised me the other day with an Edgerydoo Kit! I have always wanted one! It came just in time too because I had to make a receiving blanket for my cousin's baby shower! Just finished it up and I am really happy with it :)
The best part is that is only took less than a day to do.
