Fuego! Fuego!

Don’t worry.  There isn’t a fire but what I do have to show you is the cutest firefighter ever.  Mind you, she wasn’t all that happy with the fire hat but left it on long enough for me to snap a couple of photos.

Not happy…leave me alone.


Still not happy but has figured out that she isn’t getting out of this photo shoot.


Getting a little peeved but can see the end in sight. Amazing what the promise of a treat will get you.


Can you get any freakin cuter than this I ask you?


Her Auntie Pam bought this costume for her but I think we’ll be getting a lot of use out of the slicker.  It’s water proof and Miss L hates getting wet.  I think wearing the hat one night a year will be more than enough for her.

Phew, glad that’s over.  Firefighting is tough stuff.


Now onto some crafting. 

A while back I showed you a couple of jewelry pouches that I made.  Well, I recently got a picture of one in use.




I’m not sure that the tiny skinny ribbon was meant to hold so many baubles but I guess it works for her.  Till next time.

Do I look silly in this hat?


That seems to be what he is saying.  I think he looks adorable!  I purchased the pattern here.  I’m still waiting for a picture of Brayden in his Spooky Spider Hat.  Stay tuned.

Yes, that spooky time of year is coming and I’m getting ready.  First up, a scary hat for baby Brayden to help celebrate his first Halloween.



This spider hat is in the September/October 2010 issue of Crochet Today magazine.  I hope to have a picture of Brayden wearing the hat soon. 

The next thing up… these really cute treat bags.  You can make 4 of them using only 2 fat quarters! It works best if you have 1 fat quarter in a light fabric and the other in a dark.  Of course these would look good in any fabric to be used any time of year.


The pattern for this bag is in the latest  issue of Quilts and More magazine.
