Crochet baby booties pattern for Christmas!!

This is my latest bootie crochet pattern, "Baby Holly Shoes".   Adorned with the holly, which is part of the pattern, these shoes are perfect for a Christmas baby!   Without the holly, choose a cute button, and this shoe can be made anytime of the year!



I had a lot of fun creating this one. :)   Enjoy!





You can find this pattern in a couple of places.



I prefer for customers to check out through Ravelry.

Where the magic happens...

This is just a short blog.  I thought some of my followers might like to see where my patterns are created! :)

ENJOY!

Standing in my kitchen, looking into The Lovely Crow craft room.

See the photos on the wall?  My mother and uncle when they were in high school.  Those photos are definitely two of my most treasured possessions.

The Lovely Crow "brain" center.  This is where I sit when I write patterns, send patterns, respond to customers, and blog!

Another view of my "brain". (It's rarely actually this clean.)

Don't worry!  There was never a baby in the play pen while that iron was hooked up! :)  The mural on the wall, I designed and painted myself.  Whimsical dogwood branches and blooms.

 
The photo there is actually a handmade cross stitch piece my mother made for me, and it took her YEARS to complete.  Another of my most favorite things.




















And that's where it happens!  This "craft room" was a gift from my husband for my birthday.  He helped me pick out the furniture, put it all together, hang shelves, and paint.  His support, encouragement, and love has been AMAZING as I have worked to build my small business.  Without him, it wouldn't be possible.

I hope you've enjoyed seeing my "magic space". :)

Love,
Ebeth
