Another craft I love is crochet. So yesterday I decided I wanted to learn to make a chunky flower using two strands of yarn. I used a teal green and a deep violet purple, both have sequence in the yarn. Now that I am done with the flower, I am going to crochet a cloche. Afterwards I will attach the flower to the cloche.
I think the flower is cuter in person and you can see all the layers better in person, next time I make one I will do each layer a different color. But I am happy with this flower for the color I am going to make the cloche.
This photo shows the layers a little bit better
Here is a link to an Etsy Shop with a little girl wearing a cloche with flowers. Some people on there have the most beautiful children to use as models to photograph wearing the garments that are handmade. I wonder if any of these children get chosen to be models. Look at this little girl, she is so cute. I love her eyes.
I'm going to get a hair trim today, I am letting my hair grow out, so I only want a little off and then I am going to get it colored, well weaved. I don't do all my hair one color. I have to get rid of the dark dish water blond I hate.
My brother opened his new business on the first, though he has been operating out of his home for a year. He repairs play stations at his business called Gameday Resources located at
9071 Foothills Blvd, Ste. 2, Roseville, CA 95747
He also repairs by mail. He is making good money doing this, I am so excited for him. He has one of his daughter's working part time with him right now doing things on the computer for him that he does not have time to do because he is busy making repairs, I think she will take phone calls sometime as well. This will be good for her, she could use the extra money and also has another job and a house payment to pay. She just got her BA degree this December and my brother had a party for her at his house.
Which reminds me my son is graduating this month, but he will have his AA degree going for his BA degree as well all while working. So yay for my niece Jenny and my son Shane.
After I get back from getting my hair done I am going to make a meatloaf, my husband loves that and then work on the cloche.
