Saturday- Showers and Slippers

My MIL gave me this little crocheted feather duster girl. Isn't she cute? Of course she is PINK, so is the feather duster underneath. She thought maybe I'd like to make some for myself.
Hmm wonder when I will have time to do that.
Well I went to the baby shower even though I haven't finished the baby blanket. I ran out of the Caron Simply Soft Baby Blue yarn and went to two Walmarts and couldn't find more.
I have one more Walmart to try and if not there hopefully AC Moores. I am 3/4 of the way done and probably would have finished it if I didn't run out of yarn.

It's a Lion Brand pattern and so super easy. I will definitely make more of these, maybe to have on hand for those unexpected birth announcements.

At the baby shower I acquired a crocheting job. A woman there asked me if I could crochet slippers the kind with the pom poms on them. Her grandma used to make them for everyone and she died and the tradition is fading away. She wants me to revive it.

I am not sure of the exact pattern they want me to use but she will bring me the yarn and wants me to make at least 20 pairs, I think she actually needs 37 pairs for the whole family. BY CHRISTMAS!!!! She offered to pay me. I told her if she provides the yarn I will make them for $3.00 a pair. I bet I could have gotten $5.00 a pair but maybe this will get me some more orders. I guess I will have something to keep me busy after surgery.

Anyone need some slippers??

See you tomorrow, have a great night.

Those are very cute slippers! I think you could have gotton $5 too. I think if you do more you should charge more. But I'm sure it will be nice to have a little extra cash.

First, Kathy, I want to thank you for your very nice comment on my post from yesterday. What you said really uplifted and encouraged me!! Thank you from the depths of my heart!

What lot # is your yarn for the baby blanket? I'll look around here and see if I can find it for you. It's a shame to put that much work into something and then not be able to complete it!! So, let me know, okay? And how much more do you need?

As for the slippers, you have quite a job ahead of you, but you can do it!! And, yes, it will be something to keep you occupied while you recuperate from your surgery!!

Talk to you soon!

Love the feather duster girl....Need the pattern, I have the heads and hands, about 8 of them, but the only pattern I have is for a doll, and Brooke only needs so many babies...I need to make slippers...I really do, maybe I will boycott my ban on making anything for the family for Christmas and make them all slippers...I am feeling so dang guilty for not being able to do for them, especially the kids, so Maybe I will make slippers and feel SOOO much better....
Big Hugs

Boy that lady is getting a bargain at $3 a pair of slippers. It will be good though to keep you nice and busy.

Our walmart doesn't sell simply soft any more :( Just redheart. I'm sure ACmoore will have it...good luck :)

Very cute feather duster! Did your MIL make that? Does she have the pattern? I could get my granddaughter to dust for me if she had one of those! Those slippers bring back memories! You will be busy - and I agree - $5.00 would be a bargain.
