New Blog Design

If you have visited my blog before you can see that I redesigned it. Well the background anyway. I am also thinking up a new idea of how to post my blogs. Other than just the blah here is a paragraph of what I did.. pictures… another paragraph…..

I’m going to try to add more about my daily life…

Get into some sewing… I have a sewing machine and some fat quarters so I should put them to use.Β  πŸ™‚

Maybe some other crafts as well… I always wanted to play with alcohol inks.

With the end of A Year of Projects year 8 next week, I need to get my brain in gear and think of something creative. ( it might just stay the same..lol )

Here’s a little slid show of a few of my faves of this past year.

YOP 8 wk 40

Hi All… I thought I would drop by again πŸ™‚

I dont have much to show. Hopefully that will change in the coming months.

I saw this design on Instagram . The designer hasn’t posted a link to the pattern but since I am not selling what I made I hope she doesn’t mind I made one for myself. Its c2c (corner 2 corner) .

I bought this Dragon Purse pattern a month ago. I thought it was cool although I am not much ofΒ  a dragon fan . It uses a stitch I dont use much but love . The Crocodile stitch.

I ran out of yarn BUT I am not frogging this one. When I go to walmart at the end of the week I will get more Mainstays basic yarn. I do want to start another one so I will use a whole skein for number 2.

I love love love this stitch.Β 

And since its spring I am growing stuff! I started this lettuce (romaine) last week and look at the cute little sprouts! I need to put them in soil soon.

Jon mentioned getting me a mini greenhouse so I can grow more veggies. I’m on the fence about that. I’m a bit nervous that everything will die or an animal gets inside and destroys everything. We’ll see. Do you grow your own veggies? Tell me all bout it πŸ™‚

F.R.I.E.N.D.S blanket: the plan

Yup, I have not finished it. Ive barely started it.

According to my project page on ravelry for The One with the Banner , the last update was May 27th 2017.

The one with the banner in all its awesomeness… with cat hair and a few spots to fix.

The Plan: Since Ive already watched all 10 seasons of the show recently and do not want to watch again so soon, my idea is to watch other tv shows and movies that the cast has been in while making the blanket.

I got the idea while I was watching the O.C. on hulu. I have Tate Donovan, Joshua on FRIENDS to thank for this possible nightmare..lol

Ive already seen just about everything that the main cast has been in but I am willing (lol ) to re-re-re-re watch their movies again.

My search sites are Netflix and Hulu. Maybe I will find new movies.

For Jennifer Aniston I found Cake. Movie on Nexflix that I havent seen . on Hulu I found and episode of Saturday Night live and episode of 30rock.

Courtney Cox I found Mothers and Daughters (havent seen) and 3000 miles to Graceland on Netflix. And of course I do need to catch up on Cougar Town which is on Hulu.

Lisa Kudrow is in one of my all time favorite movies Romy and Michelle’s High School Reunion. That will definitely be watched since I own the DVD.

Matt Leblanc’s show Episodes is on Netflix so I may check that out and Man with a Plan is on CBS… another maybe.

Matthew Perry is my fave so Almost Heros, Fools Rush In and The Odd Couple will be re watched.

David Schwimmer is a tough one to find a movie for on hulu or Netflix. All I could find was The People vs O.J. SimpsonΒ  and The Iceman on netflix. The Iceman will likely be watched over the O.J movie.

Another place I can find movies for this cast….the library!!! DUH!! But that will be a last resort.

I already have one project done using skein #2. Hyacinth. Also by Red Heart but this is their accent line which is discontinued. 😦  I will post about that on Friday. Hopefully I have these pants and my second project with the hyacinth finished.
