photo shoot!

Today I had my photo shoot with the fabulous Lauri, and I’m so excited about it I can’t even wait for the photos to get to me before I start writing about it!

She took photos of my recently finished slouch hat, magi-cowl, and almost mittens that are soooo much better than the ones I took.  Hooray!

Oh ya, and be on the look out for the patterns for all three… coming soon… and two of  them will be free!  Can you guess which ones?

So y’all just have to wait to see the beautiful shots she got… haha!

Slouchy Baby Chicken Eggs!

Okay, you got me, all of the things in the title don’t go together!  But it’s all what’s going on with me today on this BEAUTIFUL day here in Austin.

First of all, I finished the slouch hat I was working on.  It has a lacy pattern, but it didn’t come out very nicely.  I’m thinking about giving it another try and altering it a bit, maybe no lacy, or something that might stand out better… what do you think?  Any suggestions?

Second, my friend is having her baby right now!!!!  Many strong momma blessings and thoughts are coming your way right now!  Hooray!!

And finally, yesterday, the days crossed over the threshold to be long enough for our wonderful chickens to start making their delicious eggs again.  Yay!

This is our favorite chicken of the flock, her name is Sexy.  She’s super sweet and loves to be picked up and petted.

And this is the mean one… she’s a trouble maker too… always trying to escape and wander the neighborhood.  Her name is Rocky.

Oh my gosh!  In the time that it took me to get from writing about my friend being in labor to the end of this post she has had her baby!  Her name is Carson Anne, and she is perfect!!!!  Congratulations!

What a magical day!

Love and Light,

Annie

my favorite man hat

hat #1, originally uploaded by happydaymomma.

So far, this is my favorite man hat that I’ve ever made… well, it’s actually a close tie with another one that I’ll post pics of another time. And I made it for my man about five years ago. He still loves to wear it!
