Happy Friday! Last Week on Oombawka Design…

Another busy week on Oombawka Design 🙂

I added the RSS feed from my Blogger blog to the sidebar (yeah!) so you can read the posts that interest you the most.  

On Thursday I released my new Is It Knit? Basic Crochet Cowl Pattern for free 🙂 You can download the Pattern on Ravelry and/or Craftsy if you are interested.

Here is a photo of the Cowls my fabulous Pattern Testers completed:


I still haven’t been able to figure out how to add a subscribe button for my Mail Chimp Weekly Newsletter to my sidebar – but I think I have figured out how to add it to my post. If you are interested in receiving an email every Saturday, summarizing my week’s posts in photos – please Subscribe to Last Week on Oombawka Design

I spent some time updating my Pinterest Pins – and added links to more than 60 free crochet patterns – feel free to browse and follow along on the boards of your preference here: Oombawka Design on Pinterest

My daughter Darla started JK this week – today is her third full day at school – she loves it and her brother hates it! He is at home and missing her all day – and every time we drop her off at school he says “Darla School Bad” and cries.  I’m hoping he gets used to the change soon! 

Darla passed her first level in swimming lessons at the Y yesterday too 🙂 so we are very pleased with her swimming progress – she is like a wee fish in the water!

This week’s Free Pattern Friday was on Fall Appliques and on Tuesday was a roundup of Paid Witch Patterns 🙂

Which Witch do you like the best?


Hope everyone has a lovely weekend 🙂

Another Busy Week! Free Crochet Pattern Roundups, Pinterest and Baking :)

It has been another very busy week here – my daughter begins JK this year (she is four years old) so we have been busily planning and organizing ourselves for this new endeavor!

I’m not sure how my son is going to take this – he has never been without his ‘big’ sister – maybe I will be happily surprised and he will LOVE – one-on-one Mommy time!

Believe it or not, I have been so busy, I have not yet picked up my crochet hook once since last Sunday!  I think that is a first for me – I am hoping tomorrow might bring me a few hours of crochet time 🙂

If you want to see everything I have been up to this week in my posts on my Blogger account, you can sign up for my Week in Review Newsletter – I still haven’t been able to figure out how to add the link on here –

Last Saturday I blogged about how to add your first pattern to Ravelry.

I did a bit of baking this week too 🙂 Made a fabulous recipe I found on Pinterest for Chocolate Chocolate Chip Zucchini Cake – from Chocolate, Chocolate and More – it was FABULOUS! The rest of the zucchini went into a recipe from a Company’s Coming Cookbook – for Zucchini Bread – and I am not overly impressed…wishing now that I had made more of the yummy zucchini cake!  If you love baking you need to check out her site – I have made a few of her recipes now and have been extremely pleased with each of them!

Much thanks and have a lovely, lovely weekend!
