What would you do first? 🙂
My life with crafts, books, cooking and beyond!
I can’t wait until for year 5… I have so many ideas for my hook challenge 🙂 I will post more about that in a few weeks because I want the A year of projects ravelry group to join in too.
Now for my updates…. As I mentioned in my WIP post , I have been searching for a K hook size project that I loved. I finally found one! I was set on just making curtains for my porch but realizing I have 7 windows , I decided on something else.
I love this bag. Pattern is by Jennette Reid .
My Boston Bruin blanket is coming out well… and fast. I’m almost done. I think after I make the rest of the yellow squares I will stop for a few months. Its starting to warm up here so I won’t need it.
I made all these squares over the past few days.
I used one skein of yarn for all these squares ! not bad.
2 rnd sq- 38 of 38 made (done)
4 rnd sq- 1 of 1 made (done)
6 rnd sq- 8 of 8 made (done)
8 rnd sq- 2 of 14 made
2 rnd sq- 5 of 14 made
4 rnd sq- ___of 5 made
6 rnd sq- 4 of 12 made
8rnd sq not needed
Until next time,
After months of looking for the right K hook project for my hook challenge, I finally found something.
I found this pattern on ravelry . Candy Apple Fall Cabled Baguette. I need a new bag badly so this perfect.
I am using yarn from my stash. I’ve had it for about a year. Lion Brand Hometown U.S.A. in Minneapolis Purple. There only a few rows to go. I will be stitching to black for the trim and handle.
I really suck at being Irish. I HATE corn beef and cabbage. My mom (RIP) would make it every year ( she wasn’t Irish – but my brother and I are) … I’d skip dinner and run to the bathroom ready to hurl. ..lol
and I don’t like beer so no green beer for me today… oh darn.. 🙂
The meaning of Erin Go Bragh is a sweet one. “Ireland Forever”
It was an Irish blessing used to express allegiance to Ireland. It could also translate as “Ireland ’till doomsday,” “Ireland until eternity,” “Ireland until the end (of time)” or “Ireland until the Day of Judgment.”
Éire and Éirinn are both used as names for Ireland.
In the 2009 film The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day Norman Reedus’s character Murphy MacManus phrases it as: “It’s Irish for, ‘you’re fucked.'”
A Scottish song from the 19th century entitled “Erin-go-Bragh” tells the story of a Highland Scot who is mistaken for an Irishman. The first two verses are:

Happy St. Patrick’s Everyone!!
I just wanted to write a quick post about my mom. ( I don’t think I will able to fight back the tears if I write much. She was diagnosed with stage 4 brain cancer 5 years ago and lost her fight 11 months after…. Today marks 4 years since she’s been gone.
She was a beautiful and an amazing woman, a wonderful mom and friend. I miss her laugh , her sense of humor, her wit, her sarcasm, her voice , her love and hugs, the way she use to say” know what I mean, jelly bean” and how she called me her baby girl.
And now the tears start.
I miss and love you so much mom… until I see you again.
