I have been adjusting to my new schedule. As you can see I changed my backround. I like to do it with the seasons. This one is so me! I love the granny type squares.
Lots going on right now...Today I actually got to sit by the pool and chill! Yea Me! I am posting a picture of my new crochet/knit bag. I purchased it in CVS last week. They have several colors and the bag is huge, for 14.99 and I had a 2 dollar coupon so I was walking out with this baby. Vera Bradley it is not, but it fits several large skeins of yarn and has a little zipper bag for your hooks. Love it!! And the colors are so me. If you go look for one, the are near the beach stuff.
The afghan is from a crochet a long I joined from Utube. Yea I know Utube? I was amazed to see all of the Utube crochet videos. Its a granny ripple, going so fast, Im loving the colors. I am pretty advanced crocheter, but the simplicity of this non-thinking project is just what I need right now...Later Ya'll

Adjusting to my new schedule. I am truly a schedule person. I like to get up 1/2 hour early daily just to sit and drink my coffee in solitude. Im enjoying my new job, but still need to work out my schedule. Here are a few things I have been sneaking in between this and that. Trying to finish my quilt, testing out my free motion on my machine. I always do a practice piece before I start. But I gave up on the quilt when my kitty, Isis was like hey, Im comfortable here!
Working on another baby blanket for charity. Not liking it, probably will rip out and start again. I like the pattern ok, its the yarn. Its a cotton yarn, a friend talked me into buying. A baby yarn from a yarn store, very expensive! I think I paid 7 dollars per skein, I just dont like the drape or the feel of it. Maybe when its washed? Im an acrylic gal, It washes great and lasts forever. Anywho also taking a few moments today to scan through the latest issue of Southern Living...LOVE IT... Till next time...

I was saddened today to find out one of my favorite bloggers has stopped blogging. Mias Landiv. It does not say why, but I sure hope its not due to being stalked or health reasons. Please visit her blog before she takes it down. You wont be sorry. Amazing. Keep looking back at all her postings. She has an archive. You will be inpressed and inspired and want to move to Norway and Quilt and raise chickens....
