A little bag and new hooks.

I have been doing a little experimenting and I  decided to try and make a little bag for my niece's birthday this wkend and this is what I came up with. I am pleased the way it turned out, I think she will like it. I am going to put a few little goodies inside. I wish my camera would make the colors more true, so frustrating. The colors are RH shocking pink and petal pink. I was going to crochet a flower also but I found the big star button and beads in my stash of goodies.

I came across a Etsy shop that had just the perfect Birthday present for myself. Yep today I turned 50. Yikes, anyway I decided to get me a special birthday treat.. :)

I love it. Happy Birthday to me.... The Crochet hooks I just love, I didn't think I would be talented enough to make my own so I searched the Etsy's  shops. I think the Hook Rack is so neat it's made out of cedar. Kinda of reminds me of my dad's pipe rack he had many  years ago. 
The Etsy shop is  The Crafty Lady Quilt Lady  if your interested take a peak.
Well I think the sun is finally going to try and shine and I so want to try and get the rest of my garden planted and my flowers, something that has kinda of become a ritual on my bday, usually by then we are past the frost stage. Gotta love Minnesota.
Happy Crocheting.
