The last few days I've been pretty busy around these parts!
Yesterday I went to visit my family. My mom and I always have some project or another planned when I come over to their house, and this time I was commissioned to take a new head shot for her! Mom is an amazing Christian music artist and has been writing inspirational songs for the last few years. One of my favorite moments of her musical career is when she and my dad sang a duet she wrote for my wedding. Priceless moment. If you want to hear the song though, you have to watch my wedding on YouTube. The track itself is still in production :)
Anyways, here is the picture we ended up settling on
Seriously, you would NEVER think my mom looks old enough to have a married daughter and a grandbaby on the way! Well...that's my opinion anyway.
The other fun and exciting thing that I did yesterday was finish up a new version of my Genevieve Infinity Scarf!
I used Cascade Pacific Chunky yarn in the Green Seas colorway, and only made 40 rows instead of the 76 recommended in the pattern. I LOVE how it turned out, and the yarn is absolutely luxurious. Plus - It is machine washable! If you would love to become the proud owner and daily wearer of this cowl, please check out my Etsy shop!
Speaking of my Etsy shop, I recently decided that I will be selling finished products in my shop! I'm currently working on putting together what I will be selling, but most products will be Made to Order, and I will take special orders on any pattern that I have currently published! If you have any suggestions of things I should offer for Spring, please let me know! I always have a hard time figuring out what I should crochet around spring and summer...I love crocheting my fall and winter things!
And in other pattern developments...today I wet blocked a shawl for the first time ever! There are probably upwards of 150+ T-Pins in the shawl at the moment, and I have a very raw index finger from pushing them into my carpet a few times too many. I have heard countless times how people really enjoy wet blocking their shawls and I can really see why now! After letting my shawl sit and relax in hot water for well over 2 hours, seeing it stretch into the incredible lace I knew it could be is so rewarding. I worked on this design for well over a year and it is my baby ♥ I can't wait to finish writing the pattern to put it out there for testers!
That's all I've got for you guys today! I have to get a move on and start getting our supper ready. I think I'm making a chicken pizza tonight. I've got 1-1/2 cooked chickens in my fridge and mozzarella cheese to use up, and pizza just sounds downright delicious. Yum!
