The Winner of the March Giveaway

I hope everyone had a great week and weekend. I finished the last bikini top order that took me a month, and now I'm struggling to finish a pair of fingerless mitts. I guess I'm struggling because I have so much laundry, housework, cooking, and messes that are keeping me busy and away from crocheting.

Anyway, on a brighter note, this post is to announce the winners for the March giveaway. This is the prize:

Ok, I went to to choose the winners, and here they are...

commenters 9, 22, and 29

If I am not mistaken (if I am, please let me know)

this means Liza, Aimee, and Maureen are the winners.

Congrats and please send me your email so I can send the pattern.

I was hoping to post about the April giveaway, but the details have I'll have to post about it on another day.

In the meantime, I am working on writing out this shrug pattern...just a little something for free for all of you. Thanks to all of you who commented. I'll have this new one posted in a day or two.

Have a great week!

March Giveaway...A Little Late

Yes...that's right. It's time for another giveaway. I forgot about March. How did I forget to have a giveaway last month? Busy, busy, busy...I guess. I'm so sorry about that. So I have decided to make it up to you by offering two giveaways in April! The first one will be for a pattern.

This has been a favorite... I sold three today. The pattern includes instructions for both the peach style and the taupe style

This is the pattern that keeps me sooooo busy in the spring and summer months.

If you are interested, just leave me a comment. I'll randomly choose three winners next Sunday. Yes, Three!!!

Next Sunday afternoon I will announce the winner and then announce the details for the April giveaway.

Have a great weekend!

My Last Order...For Now

First of all, I have to ask forgiveness for taking so long to answer all of your questions about the various patterns here. It seems like an eternity since my last post. It's only been 12 days, but it seems like a lot longer. Here is my last order...almost finished.

It has taken me forever to finish my last 2 orders. I'm still not completely finished, but the end is definitely in sight. I stress over orders way too much. Now that I am working, I don't think I will be able to make any more bikini tops for sale. It just takes too much time, and I know customers just don't like waiting 2-4 weeks.

The strap can be worn several ways. I was inspired by a photo from a fashion show. I can't remember the designer.

I'm hoping to have this bikini and the fingerless mitts all finished by Sunday and mailed out Monday. I feel so bad for taking sooooo long. I hope the customers understand.

I have a shrug to share with you, but I think I'll wait a couple of days for that. I still need to write the pattern out.

Have a great weekend!
