Four

I have received 2 packages from Hobby Lobby since we last spoke. The first containing a set of 4 circle looms, the second containing 2 new crochet hooks, 1 package of crochet hook grips and 2 balls of new thread, sizes 30 and 10. My new hooks are .75mm and 1.5mm!

I’m excited to try the smaller sizes!!

Especially after finding this etsy shop!!  http://www.etsy.com/shop/SuAmi

 

I have also completed, then started a few projects. 

Completed a baby sized really thick winter hat. And what with the lack of babies around here I modeled the hat on something else for my picture…..

Yes…..my panda….

I thought it was cute anyways!! 

I have started a doily and an adult sized hat to match that scarf I made previously…OH and another really pretty scarf to be pictured later! But now I’m considering starting another doily so I can take advantage of the new additions to my stash! 

Haven’t really decided yet…

I have been extremely tired as of late though, therefore getting a lot less done. Alongside that work has finally become work (not that I was complaining before) so no time there anymore. 

 

Upcoming is a craft show that my grandma attends and sets up at every year and I am really looking forward to that!! I am thinking about and hoping to increase the number of projects and see if I can sell some things. 

If nothing else I can sell what I have and prep for next year. 

AND I can paint faces and get a few extra bucks! I do a mean spongebob…..though I don’t even know if that’s what’s in now a days….does that mean I’m getting old? Because I’m only 23 and that’s not cool…..

 

 

on that note, I am really tired….Going to bed. Nice catching up!

Hey everyone!!

Sorry its been a few days, but NOW that I have some time  I’ll share what I have been up to!!!!

Aside from starting to take live calls at work as oppose to the normal training (which was terrifying even for someone who just quit her other call center job) I went to a party this weekend!

It was in celebration of my grandparents 47th anniversary/4th of July!

Started with swimming and Sangria, then along came the storm clouds!! We thought they might go past us because they were all north of us and moving east…but then the wind came! So we all grabbed everything off of the tables (we were just setting up food) and ran inside. With the help of my boyfriend, grandma, grandpa, and myself, we got everything inside seconds before a downpour!!

So me and my grandma set up everything inside as my aunt and uncle and some close friends arrived. We all ate, told dirty jokes and stories, and just had a blast. After we were all finished the rain had cleared to sunny again!!

We then were able to continue our outdoor festivities with fireworks!!! My cousin who has Aspergers and Sensory Processing Disorder even sat through most of it!! It was a huge step and I’m so proud of him!! He didn’t like the loud ones very much and would back away when they went off but at least he was outside this time!! He really enjoyed himself.

After setting off TONS of fireworks (roman candles, bottle rockets, fountains, and one with 750 shots) and putting all of the empty used up fireworks in the firepit we lit a fire. It was great….then Brandon said “its too quiet” when no one was talking. Right then a fountain, that apparently didn’t finish off started shooting out of the side of the fire pit! 2 people took off running and the rest of us sat there and laughed. After 2 more occurrences with roman candles it was time to leave.

It was so much fun!!

In the world of crochet, I am happy to report progress with projects as well as a newly cleaned. claimed, and organized work space!.

So first thing’s first.

I made a blanket for my mother, more of a decorative umm, I don’t know what they are called…but they lay down across the foot of the bed. Now the only way I could take a picture of this is in pieces so get ready, its taken in 5 shots, one for each of her children.

It’s really long! So long that the first and the last children are hanging off the side of the king sized bed!!

She really loves it, and so does Lily, my 2 year old sister (the one in the middle)

Along with that I also finished my very first doily!!

I still need to flatten it completely but here is the finished picture before that process.

Aside from those two projects I am finishing up my batman blanket and trying out this  new scarf my grandma taught me how to make!

And here is a photo of my work space, not including my arm chair and my huge box of yarn ❤
