Good Morning

Good morning everyone!
I think that life is taking a turning point at the moment.  I'm spending a lot of time making things and then advertising things from my new business
Things are going really well, I'm making orders, answering enquiries and making new designs when I can.  I have also started typing up my patterns and making them available for sale.
It's really strange that I can't remember a life before crochet!  Everything just seems to be clicking into place.  I do have to say that I am not very good at the small pretty fiddily things!  I tried making a bell angel but it's not up to standard!  I found it difficult to follow the pattern but I think that is just because of my lack of skills.  The pattern is more beautiful than mine:

So I decided to make one that I found easier and I think turned out better!
I also made a monkey hat this week for an order

I thought about making a sock monkey hat but then decided that there are less normal monkey hats than sock monkeys.
I'm hoping to get a lot of housework done today and then i've got an alien to finish, a penguin hat to make and a santa and elephant hat to finish.  I don't think I'll get it all done today but it's worth a try!
I'll hopefully post again on Friday with the pictures of my new designs :-)

Really sorry that I haven't been blogging lately, I have been trying to make as many new designs as possible.  You are more than welcome to look at all my new designs
I am also starting to sell my patterns on my site and on ravelry.  I am so addicted to this site that I thought I contribute as well.
My son is back at school now so we are trying to get back into a routine.  I'm hoping I'll have a bit more time next week to give you more of an update.
The business is just starting out but it seems to be going well.  I love making things for other people and I love when they enjoy what I have made.
I made a triceratops hat for my son, he wore it to school today :-).  Only one more hat and he'll have a different hat for each day of the week.
Anyway better go as it's time to run his bath and then it's bedtime.  Once he is in bed I'm planning on making a start on an angel for a friend.  Hope it turns out ok.
