A Little Progress

Well I finally have a chance to post. I'm hanging with my brother, using his internet to check my e-mails and such. In between unpacking and getting the kids settled in a new school I managed to make some bunting and another african flower pot holder. Ready to work on something else over the weekend.  I started feeling the pressure building, all the moving, unpacking, worrying and general upheaval. Getting a divorce is stressful, not something I wanted to go through but found to be a necessity. So I took the day off so to speak, no unpacking, cleaning, thinking, just loosen up and try to be positive. I think I'll have a look around the web and try to find some inspiration for a new project. Crocheting and reading are my favorite things in the world, so relaxing and I can make some things to spiffy up my new house. New for me but it's actually from the 20's. It's old but it's mine. Some crochet will spruce it up right quick! So off I go, happy weekend to everyone.

Just a quick pop in. I will be posting sporadically as I am going through a divorce and am moving starting today. I won't have internet for awhile, I am going to be job hunting and getting my kids settled in a new school. My brother lives five minutes away from the little house I bought though so I will be able to hop over and use his internet here and there. So until next time happy crocheting.

A little crochet

I finally bought a book I've wanted for some time. I'm watching the money but I squeezed this in as it was 30% off. So now I need to learn to knit so I can use the other half of the book. I've tried before but it just seems hard to me. I think I'll look up some videos and go from there. I spent Saturday at my brother's and I made a few new granny's .They're the start of an afghan called cathedral windows. Hopefully I won't lose interest like I usually do, I really like this square. I'm having fun making flowers right now too and leaves. Boy, today I seem to be having trouble thinking, I'm drawing a big blank here. Maybe cuz I keep wanting to put my head down and go to sleep. Perhaps that's what I'll do, go recharge the battery. Then I'll make sense next time instead of babbling. Till then, happy crocheting.

Picking Up Where I Left Off

     My Attic24 Bag. I got lazy and skipped the flowers and did not do a good job sewing on the  handles. I was in a hurry as I had kids and a my husband at my feet all waiting for me to do other things! I will have to give it another go, but not quite as big. It's really very floppy, I did too many rows for the bottom. I do love the flat circle pattern though. I've had a lot of trouble keeping my rugs flat and when I got this bag out to finish it I realized I should use that pattern. So off I will be to try another rug! I intend to master it!
This is a second afghan for my husband, the first one I made for him is cool, I just wasn't very good at controlling how big I made the stitches. A baggy mess I'll tell ya. He's a sweety though and always says how much he loves it. This is a bad pic, the color is a lot deeper than it looks. More pics later as I get more done on it. I still want to get all these ufo's out of the closet.
I of course can't help myself from doing small projects in between but I'm still plugging away. I need to finish this afghan and two more after that. Then I will start another, I do love afghan's, if only I could stick with something and see it through. I guess I'm just a fickle chick!
All right then, enough for today, work to do, crochet calling me and a trip to the library! Enjoy the day!
