Today is Miss Ginger's birthday. She is three years old. She is the joy of my days. She is Mama's little stinky chihuahua dog!

New Toys To Play With

I got my box of crochet thread from Shady Lane today so now I have some new toys to play with! lol I held the coral thread up to the project I'm finishing and it looks to be the same but you can't really tell until you start crocheting with it.

Hand-Dyed Thread

I got some hand-dyed thread yesterday from Denise's Creative Crochet Corner eBay id: craftylady1951. Her threads are beautiful! I can't wait to use it.

Walgreen's put their Easter candy out today. Brach's Bunny Basket Eggs - yes!! I restrained myself and only bought 3 bags. I'll probably stock up because they are my favorite candy of all time. I've been eating them since I was a little kid.

Didn't Plan Ahead

Rats! I am almost finished with my pineapple doily and realize I may not have enough coral thread to finish. I didn't realize the doily was going to be so large since I used a size 5 hook and size 10 thread instead of the smaller hook and thread that was called for. 300 yards seemed to be enough coral thread. Now, I have ordered more and hope the dye lot is not too far off as to be noticeable. If it is I'll finish it and keep it for myself.

In the meantime, I have started another doily. Can't be idle!

Falling Apart

I'm falling apart in my old age (51) and have to get my knee operated on for the 2nd time in less than a year. I guess I'll get a lot of crocheting done while I'm laid up, though!

For The Love Of Pineapples

I'm currently working on a pineapple centerpiece. The colors are ecru and coral. It's refreshing to use a different color than I usually use. I was looking through completed projects and found a pineapple table runner I forgot I had so it went up for auction last night. My crochet club is having an 8 x 8 square swap so I've been working on those, too.
