My sister had a friend that was giving away a ton of crochet books. I found one for a crochet gift bag. Here is how my sample turned out. I am thinking about making them in the school colors and sell them for $5 each or 5 for $20.
I haven’t been on this weekend very much because we had a string of major legal issues come up. One being my daughters truck bein stolen (and the police department helping). My husband went to the police department to file criminal charges and was told that he was not allowed to. That he had to go to the County District Attorney and see if they wanted to pursue it or not. So my husband talked to a DPS officer and he said it was a clear criminal act and that he needed to go straight to the Texas Attorney General. This town is crooked and if you don’t go out of it than nothing gets accomplished. He also helped us with another legal issue. I will write about them more when they are in a better stage of the process.
Monster of a To Do List:
I have not forgotten it or abandoned it yet. I just did not accomplish as much as I wanted to get done on it. I do have 2 rooms and 1 closet completely done (so my efforts are being seen). I have spent a few hours the last 3 days on the kitchen but on Thursday before I could start my Aunt called and said she was cleaning her garage out by herself. So I put a hold on my house and we went to my Aunt’s house to make sure she didn’t over do it. Then Friday I put a ton of work into the kitchen but my foot took a beating and I had to stop. So Saturday I was planning on working a few hours and then taking my son to see the Easter Bunny. Then the cops came and put me in a bad mood so I refused to clean any further or go to the Easter Bunny! Sunday I put in a couple hours but then we had to head back to my Aunt’s to finish the wall in her garage!
I started a snow queen blanket. I really like how it is coming out. It is really pretty, but it is just keeping me from cleaning and finishing my other crochet projects! I will show you pictures once I get a little further into it.
After getting angry at the cops and my husbands family I went through my Facebook page and removed everyone that was related to my husband or associated with this town. To tell you the truth I enjoy getting on Facebook now. I see nicer post and I don’t get angry at what I see posted now. I should have done that long before now.
Here is hoping for a better week!
I really love the crochet dreamcatchers I see and wanted to give one a try. I had some old drapery hoops and thought they would be perfect as a dreamcatcher. So I wrapped the hoop with embroidery floss and crocheted the inside. I couldn’t find a pattern to fit so I just made it up as I went along.
I did find a pattern for the feathers and I love the way they turned out. You can find the feather pattern here. I used embroidery floss and a 3.0 crochet hook. I think it turned out great for my project.
What do you think? I wanted to get some bigger hoops and try my hand out on some larger ones.
I started making Gift Cards/Money Holders. They are part of the items I will be selling at my first show.
Blue holder with black edging and a black bow.
Pokémon Great Ball.
I plan on making Ultra and Master Ball ones too. That post will be coming soon!
I found this great pattern for a Crochet Ninja Turtle Mask, if you are in need of one please check it out.
I made one up for my son and he love it!
I want to try craft shows and my husband and I discussed it last night and he suggested for my first time only making 6 of everything. To let people order if they needed more. We are going to try the local flea market first to see what kind of reaction I get and then go from there. So to start with I am going to make 6 of each color; blue, orange, red, and purple.
Here is the picture of my son wearing it, I know he needs a haircut bad!
My cousin was down visiting his mom so we all went to dinner. It was nice getting away from this town for a couple of hours.
Today I am focused on making the blocks for my sister’s monkey blanket. I have so many to do and not very far. What are you working on?
What I am Watching:
If you missed the earlier post, added another poem. You can find it and the other poems prior to 2002 here.
You’ve Got Mail:
I looked out my door because I heard commotion in front of my house today and to my surprise was a big box. I received my binding machine! Yes, I am super excited to start putting together poem books and genealogy books! I will be trying to find other projects for it too!
For my 2nd Facebook pay it forward I made a crochet bag and working on the matching kitty cat. If you are interested in making one you can get the crochet pattern here.
I made a couple changes. I used a magic ring for the start. Then for the handle I did R2 and R3 backwards after finishing R 15.
