Hello blog world! I accepted a job this week as the Marketing and Web Coordinator for the Catholic Charities of Dallas. After four months of unemployment, this opportunity is such a blessing. I will be using my background in social work and journalism to help tell the stories of the good works Catholic Charities of Dallas. I’m so excited to use my journalism degrees!
Aunt Nana strikes again with her crochet! Halloween is right around the corner, and I have to get these TMNT masks in the mail!
For Christmas last year, we gave our nephews several Teenage Mutant Ninja turtle themed presents. When I found a video tutorial on Ninja style masks in adult and child sizes, I had to make them for my nephews for Halloween!
They love imaginative play, so I made one in red, blue, purple and orange in adult and child sizes. Over the top? Nah. Cowabunga dude!
My dad would’ve loved this Indianapolis Colt’s hat. He was a tried and true blue Colts fan. Admittedly, I have not really watched the Colts religiously since they won the Super Bowl in 2007. My nephew, Sean was just a baby then, and living with me at the time with his mother. As a family, we watched the Colts games and cheered them on in our blue!
So, I made Sean a Colt’s hat. I’ll make Barry one, too. It just seems to have a little more meaning for me. I know my dad would have loved this hat! Go Colts!
It’s game day for the Indianapolis Colts! I searched the web for a crochet horseshoe for a Colt’s emblem and found a video pattern. I found this free You Tube Video tutorial for How to Crochet a Horseshoe by Sabrina at Havoc Mayhem Creations.
I crocheted a Colts hat for my nephew, and it really needed a horseshoe! This is an extra large pumpkin, and chaining 40 makes one giant horseshoe! Luckily, you can crochet this embellishment really quick. I couldn’t waste the effort, so I used some pins and attached it to a pumpkin. 🙂
Stay tuned for my Aunt Nana’s Crochet Go Colts hat!
