Christmas in July .... uh August

Hey y'all! I just wanted to pop in and show what I've been working on this summer.

I have had this project on my to-do list for YEARS! I first saw the pattern in 2009 in my copy of the Crochet Today Nov/Dec 2009 edition. 

This magazine is no longer in print and that makes me really sad. They always had the cutest patterns!

I had actually forgotten about it until I was going through some things on my book shelf and saw the pattern again. So I ordered the yarn and spent the next couple of weeks working on it. Once I got past the first few rows, I was able to memorize the pattern and work through it pretty quickly. I think I started in early July and was finished by the end.

This summer has been busy! My SIL got engaged at the end of May and set her wedding date for November 4th. We've been going home every 6 six weeks or so to visit family and take care of wedding stuff.

I've also been working on state and school themed cup cozies to sell at the local shops!

What have you been doing this summer?
