My Life, My Loves & My Pursuit of Those

Drawstring Bag

Back to what this blog is about.....Crochet!!

This is a drawsting bag that I started to follow a pattern but hated it so I frogged it and started over with major tweaks, like the stitch change in the center and the beads were my personal touches plus I didn't make it as big as the pattern called for.

This is a close up of the center stitches and beading. This was first time ever beading with crochet. This will be a gift for my mother.


OK OK I did it.. I made a doily. Well actually it was supposed to be a coaster BUT ended up way too big so now it is a doily.....

I have been a busy bee

Here are my results, first attempt at dyeing. I liked the way it turned out. This is size 20 crochet thread.

So I have been at a new place of late and I am really enjoying myself.. Thanks Wendy!

I washed my car..Yeah!! I finished my take home test. I have finished 6 of 9 loads of laundry and cleaned the whole house.

Now here is the BAD news.....................

My 2 year old son got of hold of my newly dyed thread while I was in the laundry room and was playing with it when I returned....I almost cried. Oh is my fault for not putting it up on the counter.

Polar Bear Finished

Well I finished the Polar Bear and just gave it to my 2 year old. He loves it but we will see how long that lasts.
After the designer made a few adjustments the pattern was a breeze to finish. I am happy with the results. I did end an inch and a half smaller because there was no gauge included in the pattern. Whatever, I always stitch tightly and should have known better.
Now that this is finished, I am thinking about starting a purse with some boucle I have been holding onto forever. I ordered some round rattan handles and I would like it lined so if there are any suggestions for crochet patterns, I am open for ideas. I should probably post on Crochetville but I don't feel like it right now.
Weekend was wonderful and little man is feeling much better. I am sore from working out on Friday but it is the good sore, the I know I work out really hard.
Should be off to study for my finals. Yeah, classes are almost over and if I was in my early twenties, thin and had no kids, I would to stoked for Spring Break!!! But I am none of those things but still happy to have a break. My wonderful hubby is taking vacation over that week so we can hang out. We are going to the beach, zoo, dentist, and ATVing over that week.
