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 recently joined a group that gets together bi-monthly for a Free Sew. I had no clue what that meant…until I did a bit of reading. We work on whatever project we are currently on or a project you need motivation to proceed with.
That sounded perfect for me…I started a project in November of 2012 and have been at a standstill. What a great opportunity for me to proceed (read: start…the only thing I have done up until this morning is pin everything together after cutting the pattern pieces out). Plus I also get to meet others that are interested in sewing.
I am hoping to post pictures of what I was able to accomplish today. See I have been very apprehensive of patterns and today I am hoping to overcome that. Enjoy what today brings you.
Update: I had to back out of today’s Free Sew due to an illness that hit me suddenly. Makes me so sad as I was looking forward to this for the last month 😦
