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 of 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.
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 🙂
Well hello there … its been a while. How have you been?
I’ve been good. Not much going on here. Halloween was good. Thanksgiving was good and Christmas was good as well. I just received my Christmas present from my man. Every 2 years he upgrades my gadgets. 4 years ago he bought me a kindle, 2 years ago a tablet. and yesterday…. with some of his tax refund, a chrome book. 🙂 I am over the moon with joy !! I love this thing. I don’t have to wait to use the computer. My tablet keyboard was getting a little bit lazy and if you have ever typed anything out on a screen you know how annoying it can be.
Now here is where I show you all thing things I’ve made in the past few months…….
LOL There isn’t much to show. I’ve been reading. I have been abusing my library card like crazy. Since late October, once the Halloween orders were finished , I’ve been working on a Once Upon a Time c2c blanket by 3amgrace designs.
Other projects that are still in the early stages and not worth uploading a picture over are a baby Cactus cardigan and a baby tank top. They are gonna be so cute! I think this year I will devote my yarn stash to making baby items. Eventually one of my younger cousins will have a baby.. or two. 🙂 And my etsy shop needs an update!
Before year 6 of A Year of Projects is gone for good, ( so depressing) I needed to get a few things finished.
The holiday flag that has been laying around since year 6 started is now done. I’ve been looking at it in my WIPS basket and couldn’t bring myself to finish it the way it was , so I ripped off the tree and voila’ … all done.. and perfect 🙂
I’m at a crossroad with the Gilmore Girls blanket. I had to finish Luke’s Diner. It would bug me if I didn’t . I am not sure if I will make the other blocks though. I am pretty dedicated to the FRIENDS blanket. We’ll see.
Another c2c panel that needed to be finished is Aurora. Lack of gold yarn stopped me from finishing this….when I got more it went to the Luke’s Diner panel then the MagicKarp hats. She is now finished… On to Ariel 🙂
Does anyone remember the Emoji Blanket I was working on? I have 6 emojis done… and I was deciding on what the other 3 will be…. I made the Poo emoji this past week.
And I finished this moss and front post stitch pony tail hat. ❤
WIPS for the week are this stockinette stitch shawl… it grew a little bit from last week.
And I started another shawl… its called Skewed . its a free pattern on ravelry.
This CAL is from chaos and chop suey here on wordpress. Ive never been so happy to make anything in my life!! 🙂 I loved the show and I am rewatching it on Netflix while making this blanket. I will be done with show way before I am done with the blanket 😦
The pattern on ravelry is $7 . and soooooo worth it Angela put A LOT of work into these blocks and appliques. Harper Baby Shop made themed hooks for this CAL and I HAD to get one! My hook is a 4.25 and the hook Angela used is a 4.50 but I rarely use that size hook so I wanted a hook that I will use alot. This hook is so cool.
My first block is The One with the Banner….
I just started the decrease. This is going to be the longest c2c piece Ive done 🙂 My next one will either be Phoebe’s guitar or the peephole .
I also made some appliques of my own.. The E is for Emma, banana is for Marcel, goldfish is for Eddie and the mustache is for Richard. ❤
Another C2C CAL has caught my attention. I know I haven’t finished the Princess and Villains C2C CAL yet, but this one is sooo much more important!! Its the GILMORE GIRLS!!!!!
I wasn’t a fan of the show when it aired in 2000 but since hearing about the revival I wanted to check it out to see what the hype was about. I finished all 7 seasons in about 2 months thanks to Netflix and watched A Year in the Life in 2 nights. ( and have since re watched winter and spring) . I can see why so many people love that show.
I dont remember how I found the C2C CAL by Chaos & Chop Suey But I am glad I did. Angela designed amazing squares .
