I had a wonderful day today. I was off from work so after eating breakfast at our local community center we, went to the Library earlier than usual for the meeting of the KnitWits, a local group that meets and knits and crochets. We had a lovely crowd today and I got to finish my hat I was making. I got finished an hour before the meeting was over so I had to go get some yarn out of my ‘trunk stash’ boy was I happy I had that. I was on the go, with my crocheting. I had gotten in that perfect groove where I just did not want to stop.
I will try to post pictures later of my finished hat,but meanwhile here is a link to the pattern designers site where you can see what It looks like and can also purchase if you would like. http://http://www.lindamade.com/patterns The hat I crocheted is the ‘Artichoke Hat.’ I love this designers patterns, she always has wonderful and beautiful things!
Wishing I had more time for the things I want to do, like photography and crocheting. Bit by tiny bit I will make time to relax and do what makes me happy. I find new ideas around me all the time, whither its and new pattern I want to try out or a photograph that I want to take. It is never ending.
The crisp air tonight felt good compared to the recent scorching heat. It won’t be long till I’ll need to get out my scarfs, hats and cowls. I am sure I will be adding to my collection of these, for there are so many pretty patterns out there.
In shopping tonight, at my workplace, I came across several new Gluten-Free items in the grocery aisles. I found some crackers made out of nuts. I got the pecan kind and they are good. To explain why the need of gluten-free I have recently discovered, thru elimination, that gluten containing foods such as bread were causing severe migraines. I was tired of being miserable and missing work because of the migraines. Medicine didn’t work so I thought I would try going Gluten-Free for a month to see if this would help. It’s been four weeks and so far so good. I even fill like I can breathe better, if that makes any sense.
Mabel the Pig Pattern
This is the pattern that I came up with when I was unable to find a pig pattern that I liked. Make one, two or three and you can have a whole family of pigs.
Here are some of the progress pictures on my purse. Nothing like cutting a square out of the middle of fabric.
Melly and Me Sherbet
Well, my purse is coming along… I had some difficulty getting the iron on interfacing to stick, but that part is now over. Then I had to pin my pleats down on main part of bag. I think I could have given a blood sample with my pin pricks. I did get to have fun with my rottery cutter that I have had for a while and have never gotten to use. I might have had too much fun..
I made some pictures of the purse progress that I hope to post soon.
I am finally making my Melly & Me “Sherbet” purse. I have dug deep in my fabric stash for some Waverly “Emma’s Garden” in three different shades. I am going to accent my purse , I think, with a crocheted rose.
My world is upside down. I sleep in the day and work at night. In my off days there is a bit of normalcy. Every thing goes back to the way it was, for a little while at least. Then I have to go back to work and turn my life upside down again. One good thing though, I do get to see my youngest niece more often, and she is a breath of spring air.
This is going to be an exciting adventure for me. Write my thoughts down and share them. I am an avid crocheter, photographer and poet.
