Crochet Camera Pouch & I won a book!

 Hello and bless you! I have been enjoying a super busy week after the Easter Holiday.

This weekend while driving to another town for a family gathering, I brought along my yarn and hook. I wanted to make a little strapped camera pouch that I could easily carry and get my camera in and out of. So I took some bright and cheerful yellow cotton worsted yarn and started working away.
Here is what I made.

 I wanted a long enough strap to carry easily over my neck. Just a small pouch that easily holds my camera. There is enough room for my cell phone as well! I was pretty happy with how it turned out. Everyone like it as well. I just made up my own pattern as I went. It was one continuous yarn project and I never ended up cutting any yarn until the last knot I tied at the end. I incorporated the strap and slip stitched the sides.

I love this better than the store bought camera cases. 
It is much cuter, and really makes my camera accessible!
I took these pictures out in my yard this morning. Ever seen a tree with a camera pouch? Ha ha!

I went to pick up a package at the post office out here in the country. I was wondering what it could be? When I got there, I was pleased to find that it was my first prize I have ever one from a blog give away!

 I won this children's book from

She has such a warm family loving blog. I really enjoy her posts.
Thanks Connie!
I was pretty excited to win. And since my great niece is turning five this month. I think I will tuck it in with her presents!

. This week has been such a busy time, with errands, appointments, kids events, etc! 
Reminder.. did you get your taxes mailed? The deadline this year is April 17th.
