A Year of Projects, Crochet stuff, Gardening

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™‚

A Year of Projects

YOP8 week 33

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 meΒ  a kindle, 2 years ago a tablet. and yesterday…. with some of his tax refund, a chrome book. πŸ™‚ 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. πŸ™‚ And my etsy shop needs an update!

 

More later.

A Year of Projects, Crochet A Longs

YOP6 Week 52

Goodbye year 6….

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 πŸ™‚

I’m at a crossroad with the Gilmore Girls blanket. I had to finish Luke’s Diner. It would bug me if Β I didn’t . I am not sure if I will make the other blocks though. I am pretty dedicated to the FRIENDS blanket. Β 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 Β MagicKarp hats. She is now finished… On to Ariel πŸ™‚

I am amazed at myself for finishing Cinderella so soon. I started her on Thursday , right after I finished the Evil Queen. And she was done yesterday. Besides all the ends on the back. πŸ™‚

I started the Sleeping Beauty c2c square last night but I want to take a break from crocheting today because my wrist hurt last night so I don’t want to make it worse by over crocheting.

Back to my book…. David Spade’s memoir …lol
