What I've been hooking :)

Size Newborn diaper cover in Red Heart Super Saver Aran Fleck.

Phone cozy!! I have a ZTE Merit but it also fits on an iPhone 4S.

Shipped this out today to Leesburg, VA! Hat is 0-3 months..

This was my first ever ETSY sale!! I jumped for joy when I saw I had a sale on there!

I won the pattern for this hat! It's supposed to be sized at newborn, but it was way too big for Little Miss's 13" head when we first brought her home!  I have made this turquoise color, purple, maroon & light green :) 

I'm a HUGE baseball fan, so I made a baseball hat :) Little Miss is my beautiful model!!

Fat Flush Water

I saw this on facebook & I think I'm going to have to try it!!

Fat Flush Water!!!

You should drink at least three 8 oz glasses per day, they say the longer it sits, the better it tastes. You can eat them as well but they are intended as flavoring & still work, so that is your own choice! The Vitamin C turns fat into fuel, the tangerine increases your sensitivity to insulin, and the cucumber makes you feel full. Try it for 10 days & see what you think! 

Ingredients per 8 oz serving. 

1 slice grapefruit
1 tangerine
1/2 cucumber, sliced
2 peppermint leaves
Ice - as much as you want

Wash grapefruit, tangerine, cucumber & peppermint leaves. Slice cucumber, grapefruit & tangerine. Combine all ingredients into a large pitches. 

Stir & Enjoy!

More tested patterns!!

I am currently in the process of testing a pattern for a pair of pants & a matching bonnet for Veronica's Crochet on facebook!!

But in the mean time - I have also tested a pattern for Treasures & Trinkets by Tiffany. I was able to test her pattern for this adorable Newborn Baby Chick Hat Which you can purchase for the very reasonable price of $1.99!

My review on the pattern?

Very well written! Size is absolutely perfect! I finished the hat in about 10 minutes! It was even explained on how to do the cluster - which is great because I didn't know how to do it!

The other pattern that I tested was a pair of leg warmers for Diamond Crochet!

My review?
LOVE that this pattern came with a video on how to do the starting stitch, as it wasn't your basic chain! There is an option for doing the regular starting chain. These took me about 20 minutes to do - start to finish. I also really like the little ruffles at the feet!
I can't find a link to the published pattern for the leg warmers - so I'll try to find it & get a link!

Patterns I've tested (4-19-13)

I was offered a chance to test a couple patterns for Veronica's Crochet!

The first pattern was for her Vintage Scalloped Bonnet. I tested it in size 0-3 Month! (Since I have a model that size!)

I did my version in ILTY Grape from Hobby Lobby and added a cute butterfly button to hold the strap!

I'll give my little review here :)

The pattern was written very well & super simple to understand! The bonnet worked up very quick. And the results were awesome!

The second pattern I tested was for her Vintage Star Bonnet. I also tested this in size 0-3 months!

I did my version in ILTY Pistache from Hobby Lobby & The flower is out of RHSS Pretty in Pink from Wal-mart!

Again, this pattern was written very well! It wasn't quite as simple for me to understand, but I also had never done the star pattern before. She provides pictures to show how to do the star pattern & that helped a ton!

With both of her bonnets that I have tested, there have been different strap options! I have chosen to do different ones for each bonnet I have done!

I have 1 more pattern to test for her so far, and I will do a different type of strap option!!

As long as Little Miss lets me put her down today, I'll hopefully get it done - once I figure out my choice of color that is!
