Garden !

So this doesn't have anything to do with crafting and all that but I thought you might like to see this :
We grew tomatoes ! We got them as tiny plants for Mother's Day , and we thought they weren't going grow , but we watered them anyway with a ray of hope . Until we started seeing the plants grow little by little , and little flowers started to come up . Then we started seeing the little tomatoes coming out and what do you know ! We got tomatoes ! We got a lot more than is in the picture and they are really sweet . You probably don't know this but I happen to like tomatoes . A lot . So you can imagine when mom came with a bowl full of tomatoes I started eating them like crazy ! 
Well I better stop talking and start eating.
Toodles !!

I like wearing vests . They keep me warm ,while I can still show off my new shirt .

Easy Headband

I like headbands . They keep my ears warm, they look cute , but I just can't bring myself to buy one ,weather it's too big or too tight,too small or too colorful, so I decided to design one . So here it is .
Enjoy !

Materials :

Size 5.5 crochet hook 
Worsted weight yarn 
Tapestry needle

Abb. 
hdc : half double crochet , yarn over, insert hook into stitch , pull up a loop , yarn over and pull loop through all three stitches


Chain 10 , hdc in third chain from hook and into every chain of the row 

Rows 2-9 : Chain two and hdc into every stitch of the row 

Row 10: Chain two and hdc two into the same stitch in the begging stitch , hdc in every stitch till one stitch before the end of the row , make two hdc into same stitch 

Row 11: repeat row 10 as many times as you want to ( the more increases you make the wider the headband will be ; I repeated row 10 two times )

Once you have increased as many stitches as you want , crochet rows crocheting evenly ( meaning with no increases ) until it wraps around your head , but stop crocheting 1 -1 1/2 before it reaches the middle of your back ( neck part ) 

Next row : decrease as many rows as you increased like so : yarn over, insert hook in to stitch , pull up a loop, yarn over insert hook into the next stitch , pull up a loop , yarn over and pull through all loops on hook . Make one decrease at the beginning and at the end of the row . You should end up with 8 stitches at the ends of the last decrease row . 

Next row: Chain 2 hdc in each stitch in the row . Continue for 4 rows . Finish off 

Sew both ends together , weave in all ends and you done !!!!
