Special People

I haven't written in a couple of weeks partially due to the fact that the last two weeks of summer have been the busiest weeks of my life. It seems like I have no time to do anything besides work and school. I also haven't written because I have been avoiding writing this specific post. 

I have a terrible time saying goodbye to people…

Especially when I don't know when those I'm going to see those people again.

I have been so blessed to have so very many special people in my life. It is an awesome thing when you have an opportunity to tell them how they've blessed you. That's my intention with this post.

I have had the opportunity to get to know a family that has blessed me more than they will ever know. They have shown me what a family that loves each other unconditionally looks like. They have challenged me on my standards of what is good and acceptable before the Lord.

I have be blessed to be a part of their daughter's life. I have tried my very best to lead her the best I know how. I am certain I have learned more from her than she has from me. I will be eternally grateful for her making me a better big sister.

Words seem so limited in expressing my gratitude. I am afraid I will start to grow repetitive and cheesy so I'm going to stop while I'm ahead.

Thank you Ennis family for changing me for the better. I know heaven looks different because of you.

For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven. (Ecclesiastes 3:1, ESV)

  1. Aw! Thank you, Jess! We love and appreciate you, too! Thanks for your friendship with Johanna. The hat and afghan you made are going with us to Africa -- although I'm not sure how much she will need them in the heat! lol Hugs and blessings to you!

Free Pattern Friday: Kassia Empire Waist Dress (2-4 years)

Happy Friday and Happy Independence Day!

It's been a while since I posted a free pattern. I finally have a day off today to share one with all of you.

If you've been on Pinterest, I'm sure you've seen the crochet top and tulle bottom dresses. I fell in love the first time I saw one. I haven't been able to find a pattern I love so I thought I'd write one and share it with all of you. I hope it's easy to read and not confusing.

Pattern is written in American terms. You can sell items made from this pattern. Please do not recreate pattern or represent as your own.

Flower Crown Animal Hats

I don’t know about you all, but I am ready for spring. I am ready for warm weather, the Easter season, my birthday, my husband’s birthday, and our wedding anniversary. (Okay, maybe I just realized how busy we are going to be in a month or two.)
Spring fever gave me the inspiration to make the animal hats I have been wanted to make since the beginning of January. I’ve seen such cute knitted versions on Pinterest, but I hadn’t come across a crochet pattern for any of them. What do I do when I can’t find a pattern? Come up with one myself.
I hope you all enjoy making them as much as I did.

I had all of these in my stash and I’m sure other worsted weight yarn i…

Flower Crown Unicorn Hat.

Do you ever have an idea that will not leave you alone until you execute it? That’s how I feel about this new hat pattern. I have two orders I should be working on, but I couldn’t focus on either one of them until this hat pattern came to fruition.
After the release of my Flower Crown Animal Hats, I heard the suggestion of releasing a child size hat pattern. So here it is. I am still working on the adult size pattern as well as the idea tomake a more masculine version. Hopefully, I will be able to bring that to you next week.
