Strictly Crafting?

When I was coming up with a blog name, it was hard to find something that no one else has used. I thought of Strictly Ballroom and then decided Strictly Sewing. I hoped people would get it. I have mentioned the name to a few friends and the response is ,"Oh, you really are into sewing." True, it is my passion at the present time but I also enjoy crafting which I figure any sewing blog entails crafting too, right? So don't let the name of my blog deter you if you aren't a sewer.

One thing that may not be known is that I know how to knit. However, my knitting is limited to squares and rectangles.

I have recently developed a desire to learn how to crochet. I have been fortunate to have my friends Andi and Kirsten give me a couple of lessons.

Here is the result from a lesson by Kirsten last night.
FUN! I can't wait to make a hat. I actually ordered a custom made newsboy hat from myworldview13. It should arrive next week and I will let you know what I think of her product. I was lured in by the price.

As for my friend Kirsten, she writes crochet patterns. Check out her blog and etsy shop called McKinley's Closet. I think the name of her shop is so cute. My goal is to make her Aunt Nennie Newsboy hat. I love the flower and cute hat design.

I know, I got a distracted from a custom order and a craft fair that is coming up. I'll get back into my sewing groove tonight. Promise.
