Field Day Design Fun

It’s that time of year!  School Field Days are being planned all across the country.  My design came about after a grandma didn’t want her grand kids to go without school shirts because they were a day late in ordering.  What grandma’s don’t do for their littles!!!! Designing began with trying to be similar with colors and design. But, not exactly to the design so there is no infringement.  Here is the design I came up with.

So, for all of you cricut users the design is free of charge just by following my blog.  I am hoping to start doing more designing and offering free designs monthly at this point.

You wonder where this designing comes from…..hahahah…..well I have been drawing since I was little, sitting in the back yard at my Bushia’s house (Polish for grandma). I would go there every day after school while my parents worked. From there I started my education in college toward a mechanical engineering degree that turned into an art degree.  Yep, a BA in painting and now, after retiring I am finally enjoying the ability to use what I learned.  However, if you are any sort of artist, you know you never really stop being one, you just don’t always have full attention to the one thing that you must have in your life to be fully fulfilled.  So…now I will be able to share and do what I love.  I hope all of you Cricut users enjoy this design. Please like my Facebook page and share your creations.

Crocheting Fingers

Well it was one of those weekends! It was the anniversary of my mom’s passing – 12 years and I was missing her.  So….what do I do to get out of my funk?  Crochet of course!

Really, it was something that kept my fingers moving, accomplish something that my daughter needed, and also allowed a little meditation time.  Don’t you need that too once in a while – Of course you do.

So…….my daughter has been talking about a messy bun hat for a year and hasn’t  had time to make one with her new little one.  I jumped on Pinterest and found some great free patterns.  The first one I did was pretty simple.  What I like the most of this was that it had a fold over brim.  I also found this site that many of you might enjoy! Its Naztzia.  The creator offers free patterns in knitting and crochet.  Here is the link to the pattern I used for my first hat.

The second hat I did in a variegated yarn and it did not require a pony tail elastic as the first one did. This one I found at Yarn Ballin It was named Katniss Messy Bun Hat Pattern.  The site requires that you enroll with your email.  The pattern is free and very easy to follow.

Both hats took me an evening each and they were not difficult to complete. My daughter gets one and another lucky girl will get the other to get through our Michigan winter. Have you created bun hats or pony tail hats?  Share them with us.
