On Another Streak

Yes folks, I'm on another crocheting streak. I do know how to crochet anything you could possibly dream of but doilies are portable and faster and I am all for instant gratification!

The Wait Is Over

I finally finished making this Leafage Irish Crochet Doily. It is from a Decorative Crochet magazine and the pattern is by a brilliant designer Yoko Suzuki.

Rounding Third

Headed for home! I guess I'm coming down off my 2-month crochet high. It's taking me longer to finish this doily than my usual 2-3 days. Just getting out of the mood I guess.

Don't Throw It Back

The new doily I'm working on looks like a keeper. I'm finished with the tedious part of making 28 individual leaves and hiding the ends on them. That's a major hurdle. This is a pattern by Yoko Suzuki from an issue of Decorative Crochet. She is my favorite designer.

Yes! Valentine's Day is over and Walgreen's brought out the Easter candy and I bought 4 bags of Brach's Bunny Basket Eggs! I'm lucky there are plenty of Walgreen's stores around so I can stockpile them before Easter is over. Aaahhh!!!

Do You See A Trend?

Yes, I got aggravated and cut up a doily I was working on because the pattern was screwed up. No, it's not me - it really is a screwed up pattern! I've been crocheting for 33 years and have created beautiful things. I promise a new doily in a few days.

Not My Whole Life

Guess what? Crocheting is not my whole life. I do other things. Shock! We are going geocaching in the desert today.

Will Wonders Never Cease?

We were complaining how people put signs out on boxes at the end of the road advertising their yard sales and you can hardly read them as you drive by because people write so small. We nearly passed one and my husband said we may as well check it out - and jokingly said it could be the mother lode. Well, what do you know - we did find quite a lot of things there! Yes!

Gold Sale

That's what my husband and I call private estate sales because people think their junk is more precious than gold.

I've been working on a suncatcher doily and want to get it finished soon because I bought a pattern book off eBay and it has such awesome designs I can hardly wait to start making them!

Where Have They Gone?

Where are all the good rummage sales I went to last year and found loads of things to sell on eBay? Maybe I'll hit some in March. Went to one today and found 3 books, 2 pairs knitting needles and one spool of crochet thread. At some of the better sales I've hit the mother lode and came home with a carload of things.

Mene Mene Tekel Upharsin

The sale today was the worst! I should have seen the handwriting on the wall when they said it was for one day only and for only five hours. I bought a used t-shirt for 50 cents and a tiny teddy bear for my Ginger dog for 10 cents.

Nearly A Rip

We stood in line for an hour at this sale and it was nearly as small. We ended up finding only four books and a few spools of crochet thread.
