I have missed blogging so very much, but a few months
out was a must for me this year.
Its been a hectic summer & a busy autumn start
I've hardly had time to scratch.
Also my crochet, sewing hand has been incredibly sore for months.
I was real worried as to the problem, so after a brief GP visit & some
strengthening exercises its all good again.
I haven't crocheted for months, not much sewing either
so now I'm so excited about getting to finish somebits & pieces I started
way back in May, yes thats the last
time I posted.....so onward at last!!!!!!!
There photos were taken in May back when I thought it was time to use
up the far too many different colours of yarn in my possesion......
& there are many, way too many.
Anyway in the last few days I've managed to bring the number of squares
up to 100. These are small three round squares
& I want to make a good size blanket, I'm thinking
300 squares or so.....does that sound about right?????
So lots to do, but its so good to be able to crochet again
I sure did miss it.
Also to get me back in the saddle I hooked up some
pretty doilies just to nibble up my fingers.
I love how they look around the home....random touches of
prettiness here & there.......
little glimpses of color with cups of coffee
crunchy cookies & my favourite yankee candle
I think I need at least five or ten more.
Some new fabrics to play with not to mention the two
quilts I need to finish....all in good time
Did however not neglet the art of baking & of course eating
said baked goods....not alone though.
But my absolute highlight of the last few months was
Sophie's graduation from university
I felt so proud, such a great day.
She's a titch just like her mom, maybe an inch taller
but no more than that.
I have so much catching up to do, not just on projects
but with all your blogs...i have missed it all
Have a wonderful weekend
Lots of love Karen x
