The Swirl Bag

Almost finished with this one. It is made in 4 seperated pieces, joined together and then rounds of the same yarns are crocheted in the round on top. I chose acrylic for this as I want to felt it when I am done.

Embellish It

Have you ever seen one of these? It helps to make Icord, knitted Icord very quickly. I spooled up an entire skein of this frosty pink. It was some leftover yarn from a baby blanket. Now I only have to figure out what to make with all this Icord. Any ideas?

Sarah London Mystery Project

I follow several knitting and crochet blogs. Sarah London is one very colorful crocheter. She posted a mystery project Sunday. I went this morning and picked up my green and white Christmas yarn and have begun. I do like mystery projects provided there is plenty of time to complete the project. I am using 'Caron Simply Soft' 100% acrylic in dark sage and white. You can see the entire project by following along with Sarah at her blog:

I am very excited to see what it becomes. I have finished the first 3 squares this morning.


Posted by PicasaCan you remember 1975? Yesterday was my birthday. As you may have guessed from the photo above I was in my early teens in 1975. You can do the math from there. We scanned in this photo last year along with some from my family when we were all younger and thinner. What a hoot! I have very straight hair. Always have. My mother rolled it up on sponges the night before, just for picture day. (Because, you know, I never looked like that any other day of the year. I had a great birthday. Well, birthday weekend is what it really was. My husband spent all day Saturday gifting me, then Sunday we lazed around, did manage to get some Home Depot shopping, and then yesterday the kids made dinner...(Chinese) and a cake with their presents. Daughter 3 made me a wonderful beaded ring all by herself. Pic's of that later.
I have many more of those long straight hairs now that are grey, but am grateful and blessed to have them.
