What I've Been Up To These Past Few Months...

I hadn't realized it's been over a year since my last post. Well, I have my reasons. My laptop is broken & I'm just relying on my phone for my internet access. Unfortunately, I didn't have much time to write a post. But my most wonderful reason is MOTHERHOOD. We had our little warrior princess on December 4th '13, she is now 8 months old. We named her Princess Chloe Abbygayle, Gaby for short. She's the best Christmas present we ever received.

She's given me inspiration to crochet more for her.
I first made her a puff stitch flower headband, I followed a video tutorial of bobwilson123, the pattern is originally by Kinga E of 

Then I made her this basic beanie with pompom.
When she turned 3 months old I made her these shells baby hat with earflaps by Kinga E of still. Her patterns are just amazing! Ooh, also check out the cute little buttons at the center of the flowers. :)
Meet her new friend, Bunnie! I totally forgot the source of the pattern but I sure got it free. :)
My version of the Peapod Baby Sundress. I got the pattern from I made this for summer but I never got to take a photo of her wearing this.
On her 4th month, I made her this sunshine yellow slouchy beanie.
I followed a video tutorial of gillyscraftworld for this cotton thread crochet baby hat. I just love the pattern, its lacy design is just perfect for the Philippine tropical weather.
This is the latest project I finished for Gaby, a crochet swirl baby afghan. I followed a video tutorial of Teresa Richardson aka The Crochet Geek.
I have more finished projects that I haven't taken a photo from, including 2 dresses & 2 hats. I will definitely post the photos next time. There are other projects I finished that are not for Gaby. I wasn't able to take photos of all of them, will also post the others next time. Here are some of them:
Slouchy beanies, hair snaps, African flower hexagon granny tablet cozy & bag, pineapple bag (pattern from a Japanese crochet book), Moogly's Chevron Lace Wrap, Summer Sling Tote by Priscilla Hewitt.
I sure hope you all like what I've made during my long absence. Till next time. God bless us all!
