• Photo Friday ~ 2/24

    I didn’t take too many photos this past week.  I had planned to when I visited family up in the mountains, I even brought my camera.  But it was so relaxing at my sister’s, I just didn’t pull it out to take anything.  I just sat with family and enjoyed our time together.  Definitely not a bad thing, just wish I had thought of photos. I did get some other photos though, this is my latest crochet project.  It doesn’t look like it yet, but this is going to be a wrap.  I don’t like working long chains, so this is how wide it will be, and now I’m working…

  • Crocheted bookmarks

    I get together with friends once a month for a craft day.  Sometimes I feel like I don’t get any crafts done except on that day.  lol  This past craft day I was starting a new project that just wasn’t working right.  I started, frogged and restarted it about 3 times that day and still it wasn’t looking right.  I finally just stopped.  Crafts are supposed to be fun and relaxing for me.  It was definitely not fun and relaxing then.  😉 A friend of mine was working on a new bookmark pattern, that looked so cute I decided to try it.  I really like this pattern.  It’s so fun…

  • Crafting in 2017

    I have been thinking about what crafts I want to do in 2017.  I made some doilies for Paul’s mom and my parents gifts for Christmas.  They were lots of fun to make, but they seem like they will be pretty big when they are done.  I’m using this pattern here, and I only finished it half way because it was already the size I wanted.  But I think this year I’m going to try and make at least one full size.  But it does seem pretty big full sized, guess we’ll just see how it goes.  🙂 I plan on getting out more and take more outdoor photos.  Right…

  • Autumn wreath

    I saw a pattern on Pinterest for a Christmas wreath and I thought I could make a fall wreath too.  When I looked for the items she used to make the wreath, I didn’t like it at all, so I created my own version of the project.  😀 I found some bulky yarn in fall colors.  I crocheted a length from each other, simple double crochet.  I then braided it, glued it on some cardboard and added some fall foliage.  I don’t think its bad for my first try.  What do you think? I plan on making a Christmas one too.  Its my first time doing projects like this, but…

  • What do you do for fun?

    Have you ever asked yourself that question?  What do you do for fun? I have to be honest, I haven’t asked myself that question, purposely and seriously ask myself that, for so long, maybe never.  I’ve thought it, you know with things like ‘This is one of my hobbies.’  ‘Yes, I like to crochet.’  ‘I’m trying to learn photography.’  things like that.  But not that specific question. Then last week I was chatting with a new friend on Facebook.  A woman I become friends with from an online bible study group I was a part of.  We were just chatting back and forth getting to know each other a little…
