Today is my last day of maternity leave. And I’ve been an emotional wreck all day. I’m dreaming of the day when I can be a full time mama / maker. I’m hoping to finish this Emma ear warmer today. It’s been a nice distraction to take my mind off going back to work. Pattern by @vanessaknits
I’m obsessed with how this Mr. and Mrs. pillow set came out! 👰🏻🤵🏻Pattern by @tlbpatterns
Repeat customers make my heart smile. There aren’t enough words to express how happy it makes me knowing someone loved my work enough to order from me again. Pattern for this Santa hat and the finished hat can be found in my Etsy shop. 🤶🏼🎅🏼❤️
I am loving how this Mr. and Mrs. pillow set is turning out! Pattern by @tlbpatterns. If you aren’t already following Emily then you need to because her patterns are amazing!
Today I’ll be working on sewing all these pieces together. But not until I finish my coffee ☕️ 💪🏼
Is it time for Christmas decorations yet? I’ll be sending these cuties to their new home tomorrow. Pattern available in my Etsy shop. 🤶🏼🎅🏼🎄
I may have started over 5 or 6 times and this tiny piece has probably taken me 10 hours but I think I’m finally getting the hang of knitting. ➰
Craft show prep in full swing over here! Any guess what will be assembled today? 🦈
How cute is my little buck? 👶🏻🦌 he seems less than impressed 😂😂
I finished my first ever knitted hat! It’s still not cold enough for knitwear here but maybe soon! We had a “front” move through and today is the first day where it feels somewhat like fall. Though the high is still 80 degrees 😩😭
I’m taking the advice that Melissa from @woodsandwool shared in her Instagram live to be more present in my feed. I’ve been very absent this year and I’m trying to change that. Since it’s Friday, I figured I would do a #fridayintroductions and share a few things about me.
So here we go! My name is Jessica and I am the maker behind Orsak Originals. Orsak is my last name. I have been crocheting for about 6 years. I wanted to learn how to crochet so I could make my boyfriend (now my husband) a blanket for Christmas. A blanket was probably a little ambitions for my first project so it ended up being his birthday present. We still have that blanket in our house. I am obsessed with my cat. She is the sweetest but sassiest cat I’ve ever met. I also just had my first baby 7 weeks ago which is part of the reason I have been so absent. His name is Rhett Lee and he is the best thing that has ever happened to me. He made his arrival 13 days early. I live in Houston and he was born during all the flooding we had as a result of Hurricane Harvey. If you made it this far then thank you for letting me share a few things about me!

I didn’t get this baby blanket for Rhett finished before he was born since he decided to come 13 days early. I am finally finding time to crochet during nap time and I run out of yarn with just a few rows to go! So I guess his blanket will still be unfinished until I find the time to go to hobby lobby.

Making progress on my blanket for Baby Orsak. I have just under a month to get it done before he is expected to arrive! 👶🏻💙 I decided to just do one color because it will match our nursery perfectly. Also, if anyone has suggestions to keep their yarn organized while doing a corner to corner project, please feel free to share because my current method is a tangled mess. 🙈 Pattern is by @makeanddocrew
