Crochet sightings


  Can you believe it I saw two more sightings of a crochet items. The first was from JCPennys they showed a very nice lady wearing a crocheted pineapple skirt. It was very lovely. Then the second sighting was from a Dove commercial with the woman wearing a crocheted halter top. It looked to be done in thread. It was very cute!

  This really is crochet month because everywhere I go and everything I watch lately is crocheted! lol

Jack in the Box


  I was watching TV last night and noticed on the Jack in the Box commercial that the girl that sits down with Jack was wearing a really cute crocheted sweater. Did any of you notice it. At first I thought it was tie dyed t shirt but up close you can tell its crocheted! I just thought I would let you know what I found :) lol

  Im a little frustrated about my crocheting at the moment. I really want to make something awesome I just cant figure out what that is:) Im thinking of making a felted item out of crochet. Maybe a big ol bag. I can not find a pattern for a big ol bag but I think I can make one up. Wish me well!

A bummer day


  Im very sadden by the passing of HooksnGrannies group on yahoo. I have been a member of this group for 3 years and I for one will miss it terribly. I know they did start another group called CrochetGrannys@yahoo.com I dont know yet what exactly they are going to be doing there yet. Maybe just chit chat or hopefully they will be doing some charity work. I do hope all the ladies will come back and join in.

  Rhonda was and still is a great list mom. I pray that her life gets settled and that she enjoyes her life. I wish her well.

Im back:)


  Ive been busy making squares and having a lot of fun doing it:) I went to the crochet group meeting on Tuesday night. Angela and Verna were there and we had a wonderful time. We are making squares for our charity drive we are starting. Angie decided that I would be the first one to put a afghan together :) lol Oh fun!

  As soon as I get my camera back from my daughter I will take some pics of my squares. I recieved my new Stitch and B*tch Crochet book in the mail. I really enjoyed reading about crochet. I just seem not to be able to get enough of it. I also recieved my Piecework magazine and there was just not enough articles in that magazinme for me, I read it from front to back inside and out! lol

  Well Illl be back with pics I promise!

Update on what Ive been up too


  Ive been busy with crocheting squares. You know how I mentioned earlier that Ive been playing around with designing. Well let me tell you it is harder than it looks! I can design but I have trouble putting the pattern down on paper. Boy is it difficult. But Im not giving up on it Ill keep trying:) But I have been wroking on squares Ive made maybe about 4 differant designs. Ive also been working on 12 inch squares.

  As you can see I posted a pick of my tissue cover. It was so simple to make. It turned out great too. Ive gotten alot of compliments on it:)

  Say did any of you get a chance to see Lily Chins new show Stitchcraft? I liked it because it had great fiber items. But there was not enough mention of crochet for my taste:) But you know me they could have talked about crochet on every subject and it still would not have been enough:) lol I do hope they bring it back. It was great fun watching how they designed the articles for the show.

  Well have a great week Ill be back with pics of my squares next time:)
