A Subway Art Horoscope Sign

For my daughter's teacher's birthday, I told her I'd make her a piece of subway art.  I thought she'd want something with her children's names, adjectives describing her, etc.  Instead she asked for a Pisces piece.  She wanted "positive" Pisces adjectives.  So, I did a little research and this is what I came up with.

If you'd like to make something similar, here's a link to a tutorial: http://www.oursevendwarfs.com/2010/11/making-subway-art-tutorial-2.html

Great Things-RAKJ Crochet Patterns & Giveaway

It's Great Things Monday and we are very excited to tell you about RAKJ Crochet Patterns! Kristi has an amazing store filled with adorable crochet patterns.  Here are a few favorites:

This one is on Jill's to do list for sweet little Anna!

Isn't Kristi one talented lady!  She crochets, makes patterns and much more, all while caring for four children (ages 13, 10 and almost 2 year old twins).  She has her hands full!  We are amazed at her talent and time management!

If you want to learn to crochet, head to her shop right now!  Kristi created a video to teach you all the basics of crocheting.  A book is great, but pictures and video are even better!  Plus, it is $5.49!
Kristi is awesome about helping you with her patterns as well.  Jill is in the middle of making her Triple Stitch blanket for a friend having a baby.  She wasn't able to find the exact hook or yarn and Kristi quickly responded with some other options.  That is an amazing plus to great pattern writing!

Shhhhhhhhh!  Let us share a little secret! Kristi rocks some awesome deals and giveaways on her Facebook page.  (This has gotten Jill in trouble many times as she has over 35 of Kristi's patterns.  Hopefully, Jill can work up a few to share with you this week). 

Back to the secret, today (Monday April 25) is a big day for Kristi as she is having a big 2000 celebration!  There will be freebies, giveaways and specials from 10am to 9pm (CST).  That's in addition to our great giveaway!  You won't want to miss it!  Head on over and like her page so you don't miss out on anything!  Please tell her we sent you.
