Crochet Therapy

I have been home from the hospital after surgery to have another port placed (a plastic disc in my chest with tubing that runs into my heart) so I can get IV fluids and meds and blood work done without having to deal with yucky veins. After 3 1/2 years of intensive damage to my veins, they are just plain shot, and no one can access them anymore. So I agreed to try to port again, and pray for no clots or nerve damage like the last time.

My Etsy shops have been closed (except for ready to ship easy stuff), and I have been in bed recovering. I'm not good at being in bed doing nothing. So I've been hookin! It really is like therapy, so here are a few pics of things I've made, I hope you enjoy.

First up is a free form cotton sunhat for my daughter. I made a flat spiral on top, some shells on the side, a space for some elastic and then ruffles. She loved this yarn and picked it out of my stash.

Of course a big pink bow was in order!

I've also been working on my hexagon design, I have no clue what I'm going to make with them! I spent a gift card on bright cotton yarn, and really like the way they are turning out. Any idea what to make them into? I love that they are 3D and have a raised puffy enter and flower petals!



And lastly, I have been finishing this romper pattern, as the lacy flapper style baby rompers are very popular, and quite frankly adorable! I got stuck after the second round of ruffles, I can't decide how many more to add. Or just to add a ruffle butt. Who doesn't love a cute ruffle butt?






And now I just need an extra cute baby to model!
Have a great day!!!
