Moving (Again?)

Hey, I've decided to move my blog to my website. If you read me here, please check me out here, too:


I'm going to start blogging about more than just myself. I'm pretty boring all on my own, so I'm blogging about cool crochet items and patterns and stuff I like on Etsy and around the web.

Helloooooo! Long time no post. I guess I've had nothing to say...

I'm in the mood to sew these days. I've set up my sewing machine in my craft nook, so maybe I'll actually use it. I just bought a really cute apron pattern from http://sewbettie.etsy.com and am looking forward to whipping it up.

I've been occasionally working on a ripple baby blanket in Baltimore Raven's colors for my forthcoming grandson (who's due in May), but it's a lot of color changes and it's making me depressed. Not a good feeling when crocheting for one's grandchild... I spent at least an hour the other night weaving in the ends. Maybe I should take a picture of it and post it. Maybe that would cheer me up towards it?

Anyway, I guess that's all for now. Sorry I'm so boring...

The Big Relaunch

Gosh, this big relaunch is exhausting me. I hope it's all worth it in the end. I have decided to go ahead and list all my patterns on the site, even though I haven't figured out the downloadable thing yet. I figure people can either go to http://stores.lulu.com/sherricrochets and buy them there and download them, or buy them from me directly and wait for me to email them. It's working on Etsy, so why not?

I think I'm going to go live this weekend, depending on when I get all the patterns listed. I can tell, though, that people are already finding the new store, because you can see how many people are online and there are usually 2 or 3 online at any one time! Woo hoo.

You can check it out yourself here:

Let me know what you think, and especially if you find any broken links.

I'm still working on uploading some free patterns. I designed some really super cute bugs that I will have for free. I just can't figure out how to load a pattern and make it look nice on those shopping cart pages...

I'm also figuring out how to get more than one picture per item. Well, I know how to do it, it's just going to involve me renaming all my pictures and loading them to the FTP option on my site... I'll work on that this weekend.

Anyway, I have to go pick up my middle child at his school now. That is, assuming he remembered to stay there. I think I'll call him before I drive the 1/2 hour to his school... and make sure he is there.
