The call for participants
came out last year...

All that was needed was a few
specific coloured
granny squares
for a group installation...

This was the end result.
I had a good time making my squares.
What a cool project to be part of!
I look forward to many other
projects in the future!

Ever have 'one of those days'?
What keeps me from
strangling even the cutest
of cutes
is my in ability
to stay focused on
one thing too long...
now where did I put my glass
of ice tea...
oh that colour yarn would look
great on the stool seat
I'm crocheting...
what was I saying before?

Lovely Cuff

I found this wonderful
wrist cuff over
on Pinterest.
Unfortunately the link
to the original source
had an error.
I think this is so beautiful.
Love the colours and
the fine beaded detail on the
lace like petaled edging.

A Cute Recycled Crochet Project

Cute recycled containers
This is just too cute!
I found these cute crochet creations
over at
filth wizardry blog

This was my rendition of this cute project.

I punched whole in juice jug...

I cleaned off the residue 'sticky bits'
with goo gone...

picked out a cute colour from my stash of acrylic yarn bits...

I used a single crochet around the top of juice jug...

for the second round I continued with single crochet...

for the third round
I used a double crochet stitch and then chained a
good length that would work
for this wee project...

I attached chain to the other side,
tied off
and woven in loose ends.

Paper Towel Doodles

Sometime all that's really needed
is an inexpensive ball point pen
and a slightly mangled
paper towel...

I think this right side up
bun wearing lady
is me.

I seem to draw 'me' allot lately.

It's a good thing I didn't make a mess
with my Chocolate Pop Tart,
because I used up my paper towel
with these doodles.

Lonely Paint Table

I cannot even sit and paint...

at my art table where my art projects
are in limbo
until I get better...ugh.

So This Happened...

So, before my issue with NB's
I was starting to shift my area around...

and now I cannot even bend over,
or lift anything
for a week...

So I'm forced to look at this mess, daily...

until I can move about without
fears of creating another nose bleed...ugh!

Personal Health Issue

This is me,
finally home,
 after having spent time in the ER
for a massive nose bleed.
I cannot express just how weird
it was to have this happen.
I am suppose to take it very
easy for the new few weeks now
for fear this may happen again.

Just a Little Crocheting

I started out with trying to crochet a simply 8 x 8...
it sorta has grown.

I'm not certain I like this lighter blue.

I'm not sure how much more I shall add to this...
