SO I am finally coming to join the world a bit more these days. It is very difficult to find the right words lately. I usually am full of them. Since Mom passed away I got mainly nothing. My Love, Crocheting and a great support team is helping through my grief.

Seeing that I am basically wordless I will let you see that my April was full of yarny goodness

I saw that the Crochet Crowd was doing a crochet challenge and that seemed like something fun. I was a little nervous when I saw that it was an intermediate pattern. Well once I completed it I realized that maybe I am not such a beginner after all. After this hat was completed I had some yarn left over so… I found myself making these wrist warmers:

Give 'em Spirit Wrist Warmers

I will be starting another set in this yarn by Deborah Norville:

red rocks

I am also working on the heat in a lemon chiffon color for myself.

I have been wanting to make something in a pale yellow and when I saw this yarn I knew I just had to use this.

Now onto Yoga. I had been so looking forward to attending the beginners workshop. However, I had to miss it due to an unfortunate incident the day before. As some of you know I am a Medical Assistant at a pediatric practice. Well I was working with one of our autistic patients when all of a sudden he began attacking me.It was the scariest day of my life. The end result was bruised ribs, a bruised kidney and a pinched never, I am doing better a week later. I know to be completed healed it will just take time and I am trying to be patient. I am hoping to make the February Workshop.

Hope you have a fantastic week!

I have really become very lax in blogging the past 6 months or so. I feel terrible about this. I really want to be a “blogger” but my life has been full. I am struggling with the decision on to stop my blog or not. I will continue to think on this as I do not want to make a hasty decision. Perhaps I will only blog monthly. I am looking forward to any feedback you may have for me.

So a couple weeks ago I decided I need to make bag to hold my yarn stash. This is the fabric I will be using. Now to just plan it out and pin. I think this is going to take me way longer to make than I had originally planned. Looking forward to this project.

When I started this shawl it was to see how it would look using 3 strands. I also was using it to determine if it would be too warm for gifts to people who live in the south. I had intended it for myself. Well I gifted it away mere moments after it was finished.

Hi. Well it has been a bit since I last posted. Life has been busy lately. I am still crocheting. In fact I finished my 1st Shawl. It was so much fun and easy to make. I have begun another one. This one and the one after that are going to be birthday gifts. I know I know I said this was to be ny selfish hobby. Boy was I in denial!

I am still sewing. In fact I am in the midst of my biggest project yet. A bag to contain my yarn stash. Of course I can not take the easy path. I am making it a patchwork bag. It contains 5 different fabrics. I am cutting them so they are 10 inches long by 6 inches wide. Seriously wondering if I am insane.

I also have an order for an apron. And just yesterday I was asked to make a band to hold an ostomy bag in place for one of the sweetest 4 year olds I know.

Hope your enjoying your Saturday

I am so happy that this scarf is completed. I finished it yesterday in about an hour!

This is my first venture in using bulky yarn. I like the tweed look of this yarn and it is working up quickly. At a standstill as I need to get a tapestry needle. I am planning on doing this later today.

Paisley Scarf Becomes Paisley Bag

Recently it came to my attention that I have yet to make something for my best friend. I have made numerous things for some of her children.

So I decided to make a scarf out of some fabric I had purchased on clearance at Hobby Lobby awhile back. Only to discover I hated it as a scarf. What to do with a 42 inch tube of fabric.

In under an hour I created this bag! I intend to use it as my crochet project bag.

I am so proud of this finished scarf. I completed it while at the park this afternoon. My new phone does not let me upload photos to WordPress that is why there is a link to Instagram!!!!  Next up fingerless mittens in the same yarn!

I picked up this fabulous yarn earlier this week at Wal Mart. The colors caught my eye. I was immediately drawn to it. Upon arriving home I noticed that my project bag is composed of similar colors. This bag you may remember was made from the leftover Batik from the Car CD Holder I made for My Love.

So what to make…oooo how about those fingerless mittens. I thought that was a great idea until I realized I really wanted a scarf with these colors. Final decision was a scarf with matching mittens. I am truly enjoying crocheting!!!
Enjoy the beautiful weekend that is ahead of you!!!
