Well this may well be the reason, that we here in Texas, are knee deep in water !!!! I've updated my blog!!!
May has been a crazy month for me. I am the coordinator for all of the 8th Grade End Of Year functions at our Middle School. That includes a Formal Dance (which was held on May 16th), organizing the printing and distribution of their 8th Grade T Shirts, and their Graduation celebration, at a local fun park this Friday ..... coordinating, organizing, and collecting money from 350 teenagers is a fulltime job !!! So yes, it's been busy, busy, busy, but a ton of fun too :-)

With May quickly coming to an end, I took last Saturday off from "business", to get my mushroom themed article made, for Val's Craft Along. May's theme was mushrooms and toadstools.

I have finally found the most perfect crochet hooks ..... well for me anyway !!! These don't hurt my hand when I crochet. I only have three of them so far, but I'll get them as I need different sizes. The perfect crochet hooks, need the perfect home.

I decided to make a fold over bag to keep my hooks, and crochet bits and bobs safe I didn't work from a pattern. Instead I made it up as I went along, adding what I needed to make it perfect for me.
Appliqued mushrooms - so pretty :-)

These are my perfect hooks !!!!

The two sides have pockets for the crochet hooks to slip into. I also added a length of wool felt, so that I had somewhere to keep a few needles and pins.

I added a little zipper pocket to the back. It'll be useful for keeping my scissors, stitch markers and other bitties safe.
I finished it off with some red binding and a spotty ribbon tie :-)
It is already in use, and is working so well for me :-)

And while we're on the subject of crochet, it's time for another Sophie's Universe update !!! I am way behind on this, but hey, I'll get there in the end. I have just finished Part 7 ....

Not the best photo, but natural light is not very abundant here at the moment !!! She is really pretty, and growing steadily. I have learned so much from making her, and have surprised myself as to how much I can actually do when it comes to crochet.

Thanks so much for stopping by for a visit - it is very appreciated.
Wishing you all a happy day filled with sunshine .... and some crafty time !!!!
