Another month, another blog

Has it really been a month since my last blog? Wow, time sure does fly. This last month doesn't feel like it's been as productive as it should have been. I did get a few things done... a super cute sweater for Alyssa's cat Echo, another hat for my little niece (as the one I originally made her in newborn size JUST barely fit her wee little head), and I've got a few partially-finished projects that I'm just waiting to hear back from their owners.

Now that the weather's starting to warm up I'm trying to come up with things that I can make besides winter accessories. I've had a few ideas but I'm not sure if there would be any interest in them. I'm going to have a blog contest to help me get some motivation I think... For the next month I would like people to subscribe to my blog and comment on this post with ideas for things I can make that aren't only for winter (no toques, scarves, mittens, etc or variations there-of). Any ideas posted between now, March 06, and the next month, April 06, will be added to my list of items, and then on my next blog I will announce one lucky winner, who will get their suggested item for free!

What's new?

I don't really have anything exciting to report... well that's actually not true... I have a new niece, which is exciting :-) And I've finished off a few hats, and have a couple pairs of slippers close to being done. I have pics of my latest creations over at http://www.facebook.com/mummademe

I also got my first knitted project done. It's probably not the best, but it fits, and I will get better lol

Oh yeah! Don't forget to go over to my facebook page and get in on a few contests that are currently running. One is my Milestone Give Away... next one happening at 1000 likes (just over 60 more likes are needed!), there's a couple of days left on the Rafflecopter give away... with a chance to win an Ipad2 or Kindle Fire (and please mention that Cathy Whitehead referred you), and lastly, I have a new hat that needs a name - go to the Contests photo album on my facebook page for details and to enter for your chance to win 50% off your next order from Mum Made Me

Always happy to hear from you if you have any questions, comments or suggestions :-)

So many patterns, so little time in a day

Lately I've been seeing so many amazing patterns I want to do, I just wish there were more time in a day to do them all. Plus all the stuff I *have* to do in a day... work, kids, help tidy up, act as chauffeur/gofor lol

Awww, enough of my whining... on the bright side I did get a few projects completed - an Angela Hat (pattern by Mamachee whom I simply ADORE!) and I had lots of fun doing the test patterns! Now I'm starting on Maggie's second pair of Moccasin Slippers, and soon I get to start a beaver toque for Erika. That one will be fun! If anyone sees an interesting pattern, I'd love for you to share it with me!
I've been trying to decide if I should just make this a monthly blog, or just get rid of it... didn't think there was any point in trying to write every day if I don't have any subscribers lol On the other hand, maybe if I had a more exciting life to write about I would have some... who knows lol

Time to continue with the slippers. Don't forget to check my Facebook Page Mum Made Me for new items, contests and give aways. You can also follow me on Twitter @cyndellecrymson and Pinterest at Mum Made Me

Have a great day!

Darn work!

Today I'm continuing on the test patterns, but I have to work tonight and I just don't want to! I just want to sit here and work on them (and so many more things I want to create!) Maybe I'll just stay up late after work and rally for a while so I can get some new pictures to post.
Maggie came and got one of her pairs of slippers today (I really hope your dad likes them, Maggie!), and tomorrow I will go get the yarn for her other ones, and maybe a bit more since I'm there. I'm also trying to think of a fun contest I can do next... if you have any ideas, please share.

I guess that's it for now, not much new and exciting to report. I'm always happy to get feedback, comments and pictures from everyone!

Have a great day!

Moving forward...

My second post... okay... I can do this  lol  I finished off a pair of Moccasin slippers and got started on a few more projects yesterday.  Two of them are pattern testing for a couple of awesome pages I follow over on Facebook - The Sheepish Hooker and I love to Crochet - I'll post pictures as soon as I can  :-D  Please feel free to stop by those wonderful pages and show them some love from Mum Made Me.  I'm also continuing on a baby blanket for my aunt's best friend's first grand baby.  It's starting to look pretty cute.  I recently had a contest where I posted a close up picture of it and had people guess what it was going to be - what should I do for my next contest?  Oh, and as promised - links to see more of my pictures over on Pinterest and Twitter

Hello world!
