Lazy Summer

Boy has this been a lazy summer so far! I have two kids home from school and they are definitely a distraction. (Don't get me wrong, its a good distraction!) 

But this is what I have been up to! 

I have a few designs I need to add to my shop here, which I will do soon.

This dress was made from Wollfamos gradient yarn , which was a joy to work with. Look at those colors!

I finally finished my Certified Instructors Program for crochet and am waiting for the certificate. This is most of the reason why I haven't been posting much since it is time consuming.  

 Of course, I've been trying to find ways to entertain these little stinkers! 

 

It wont turn right side up 😕

What I'm up to now?  

Putting projects in timeout and contemplating frogging them because it didn't reach my expectations. (Maybe this Texas heat is making me grumpy) I'm sure I'll change my mind and come back to finish it, I just needed a break. Btw it was almost finished 😳

 

I'm mad at this.

Trying to keep the kiddos cool I seriously wanted to jump in there, but it would have been weird to be the only adult.  I felt like I was melting out there.

Why are you sideways?? 

Right now I am working on knitting a new design I plan to offer for FREE! I spent a lot of time today looking up ways to knit faster and found out that the flicking technique works well for me. Woohoo!

I told myself before school was out for summer I was going to take it easy since I was going to be  juggling bored kids, my husband's crazy work schedule ( some days i have to cook supper around 2 in the afternoon, its that crazy) and all the things I actually want to get accomplished.  

So I've put off submitting designs and decided to just do my own thing until I can get some peace and quiet. 

 

How's your summer so far??
