Havilah's Macramé!!

Recently, Havilah found a Macramé Friendship Bracelet book that she wanted me to help her with... of course I did!  :)

So, on a warm sunny day we went outside and spent the lovely afternoon knotting, twisting, and braiding away!

Havilah made a bracelet for herself as well as two for Mommy.  She loves making things for her Mommy!

Here is a more interact design that I tried.

What a blessing it is so tie knots together as we tie strings in our relationship as sisters!

~Little Girl Slippers~

Introducing the New Ballet Slippers!

I was inspired by a crocheted baby booties tutorial video I saw on a young lady's blog.  With a thicker yarn (I used Red Heart Yarn for this project) and a larger hook size-- I increased the size of the baby booties to become little girl's slippers!!!!  :)

I recently gave them to Havilah (once she understood what slippers were!) and she loved them! :)

Havilah enjoys her new slippers with socks... :)

My little brothers like the slippers too...  so I plan to someday figure out a larger boy version.

I'm amazed at how simple this pattern was-- all you need is a small knowledge of crocheting (the following stitches are used: Single Crochet, Slip-Stitch, and Chain.), a hook, yarn, and of course-- scissors!

"Vlog" #1 ~ Crochet and Macramé!!

Havilah displays her crocheted necklace and handiwork

Recently, we came upon a few "Vlogs"....  

On Wikipedia we discovered that "Vlog" stands for "Video Blog" so without further adieu... let us introduce you to End of the Matter's very first "Vlog"!!!  Drum Rolls, please!  :)

In this short clip Miss Havilah our interviewee will show-off her crochet and lovely macramé work.  Don't you think she's done a lovely job?

Well, that ends our first "Vlog"....  Perhaps we'll make another one in the future....

If you have any questions or comments- feel free to leave them in the comment area and perhaps we'll do a Vlog post on your question or comment.  :)

15 Years Ago...

When I was 5 years old, I first learned how to sew!  With some guidance from my mother and 4-H sewing leader  I made my first skirt, vest, and shirt.  After I grew out of it, it went through all my sisters and my mother safely tucked away.

Yesterday, after roughly 8 years of safe keeping that 15 year old outfit (minus the missing shirt :)) was brought out and my youngest sister Havilah wore it!  :)  I told her, "Shiloh made that" to which she replied, "Thank you"!  She now refers to that outfit as "Shiloh made that". 

I'm thankful that my mother kept that skirt and vest all these years and I'm looking forward to the day when I get to teach Havilah how to sew (right now she's learning how to crochet-- more on that in a future post)!
