So many patterns, so little time in a day

Lately I've been seeing so many amazing patterns I want to do, I just wish there were more time in a day to do them all. Plus all the stuff I *have* to do in a day... work, kids, help tidy up, act as chauffeur/gofor lol

Awww, enough of my whining... on the bright side I did get a few projects completed - an Angela Hat (pattern by Mamachee whom I simply ADORE!) and I had lots of fun doing the test patterns! Now I'm starting on Maggie's second pair of Moccasin Slippers, and soon I get to start a beaver toque for Erika. That one will be fun! If anyone sees an interesting pattern, I'd love for you to share it with me!
I've been trying to decide if I should just make this a monthly blog, or just get rid of it... didn't think there was any point in trying to write every day if I don't have any subscribers lol On the other hand, maybe if I had a more exciting life to write about I would have some... who knows lol

Time to continue with the slippers. Don't forget to check my Facebook Page Mum Made Me for new items, contests and give aways. You can also follow me on Twitter @cyndellecrymson and Pinterest at Mum Made Me

Have a great day!

Darn work!

Today I'm continuing on the test patterns, but I have to work tonight and I just don't want to! I just want to sit here and work on them (and so many more things I want to create!) Maybe I'll just stay up late after work and rally for a while so I can get some new pictures to post.
Maggie came and got one of her pairs of slippers today (I really hope your dad likes them, Maggie!), and tomorrow I will go get the yarn for her other ones, and maybe a bit more since I'm there. I'm also trying to think of a fun contest I can do next... if you have any ideas, please share.

I guess that's it for now, not much new and exciting to report. I'm always happy to get feedback, comments and pictures from everyone!

Have a great day!

Moving forward...

My second post... okay... I can do this  lol  I finished off a pair of Moccasin slippers and got started on a few more projects yesterday.  Two of them are pattern testing for a couple of awesome pages I follow over on Facebook - The Sheepish Hooker and I love to Crochet - I'll post pictures as soon as I can  :-D  Please feel free to stop by those wonderful pages and show them some love from Mum Made Me.  I'm also continuing on a baby blanket for my aunt's best friend's first grand baby.  It's starting to look pretty cute.  I recently had a contest where I posted a close up picture of it and had people guess what it was going to be - what should I do for my next contest?  Oh, and as promised - links to see more of my pictures over on Pinterest and Twitter
