Yarn Along Time

I am so excited to be able to show and tell you that I finished the "Little Dudes" sweaters.  I so wanted to have them finished a couple of months ago when they were here, I just didn't anticipated how tired I would be trying to keep up with two toddlers. 

They turned out so cute, I just hope they can wear them some. It is a pattern that can be made for infants to adults and I planned to make them again sometime in the future for the "little dudes". 

I'm now working on crocheted eggs and chicks to give the boys for Easter. 

They are the cutest little thing. Besides being fitting for Easter, they can continue to play with them in other ways.

They can match the color chicks to the eggshell, learn the color's name and toss them around like balls  

I'm making them in all the primary colors and it just takes scraps of leftover skeins. 

I found the pattern on pinterest but here is the link to the website 

And now for what I am reading/listening to. I had heard about this book awhile back and how the reviews were good.

Here is what posted on amazon

"The Goldfinch is a rarity that comes along perhaps half a dozen times per decade, a smartly written literary novel that connects with the heart as well as the mind....Donna Tartt has delivered an extraordinary work of fiction."--Stephen King, The New York Times Book Review

Theo Decker, a 13-year-old New Yorker, miraculously survives an accident that kills his mother. Abandoned by his father, Theo is taken in by the family of a wealthy friend. Bewildered by his strange new home on Park Avenue, disturbed by schoolmates who don't know how to talk to him, and tormented above all by his longing for his mother, he clings to the one thing that reminds him of her: a small, mysteriously captivating painting that ultimately draws Theo into the underworld of art.

As an adult, Theo moves silkily between the drawing rooms of the rich and the dusty labyrinth of an antiques store where he works. He is alienated and in love-and at the center of a narrowing, ever more dangerous circle.

THE GOLDFINCH is a mesmerizing, tell-all-your-friends triumph, hailed by Stephen King as "a rarity that comes along perhaps half a dozen times per decade, a smartly written literary novel that connects with the heart as well as the mind." (New York Times Book Review)

I'm about halfway done with it and for the most part liking the book. There are times that the author can get a little long winded in details and if I were reading instead of listening, I believe I would of gotten tired  or bored and maybe not have gotten as far as I have.
The plot or story is enticing  and keeps me interested.
Wondering how it all will end up.

Till next time

Sunday Stitching

I spent part of my Sunday making fabric Easter Eggs
I had been looking on Pinterest awhile back and came across a pin for these cute fabric eggs and thought what a great way to use up some scrap.

I am using up some of my 30's scraps, mainly because the 30's club is coming up this week and they will make cute decorations and great small gift for everyone.
If you would like to make your own here is the link to retro mama blog and her pattern.

They are very easy to make and a quick project.

Hope you had a wonderful day.
