What??? Wednesday Friday you say?? LOL......well today, this week only, is my Friday. I have Thursday and Friday off from work so in essence, this is my Friday! Oh and it's so nice. I love long weekends, just hate coming back to work on Monday. Oh well...I'm not going to even think about it until Sunday.
So...I told you that I am visiting with family tomorrow. 3 GRAND nieces that I haven't seen since they were little, they are now nearly grown, 2 sisters - my older and next to the youngest (I am next to the oldest out of 5 girls and 1 boy), and my niece - who the grand nieces belong to. :o)My niece belongs to my older sister, who by the way is 11 years older than me. That's how I have grand nieces that are nearly grown.
And so, I also told you that I was making book marks for them all. Well above is the results. What do you think? I get in these jags where I love to work with thread. All of those are original designs, well there's not much designing to them. I just start to crochet and whatever happens happens. The two kites are just simply grannie squares and then the tail is a line of chains with a comeback of slip stitches. Easy peasy. Well let me take that back, one of them, the red/green with baby blue trim I did not do my normal chain with the come back of slip stitches. I did the chain with a comeback of sc. I finished that one last night and wanted to be different on it. I tend to like the looks of the slip stitch comeback, and the sc comeback curls whereas the slip stitch comeback does not.
Ok...so then we have the heart 2 heart book mark. I think I like this one best out of all of them. The hearts are the same hearts that I made my heart n shells motifs with. I just made two of them and connected them together with the ch & sl st comeback. (That was interesting)
Next to the heart 2 heart is the nana flower. I call it that because it looks like a ba'nana' and the flower is at the end of another ch & sl st comeback.
Let's see...oh, the green lolli. I ripped this thing apart so many times, and it's still not like I want it to be but I was tired of ripping. It's an interesting piece of work.
And last but not least is the dangle of the rectangle. Kind of funky in it's own right huh? It's really downright ugly I think. This is my least favorite of the bunch. I had a lot of problem keeping tension on the thread with this one and that's why it looks like it does I guess.
So I'm anxious about tomorrow. And happy that I don't have to get up and go to work. Glorious is what it is. I may not post anything for the next few days, it depends on what happens and how it goes. Friday morning I have a dr. appt. I'm never happy about that but I'm hoping to get some relief for my back, we'll see. I think after the dr. I am going to go see a friend of mine who I never have enough time to visit with and then home the rest of the day with Mr. Lick Lick. And I am not sure yet how the rest of the weekend will play out.
If I don't see ya before then I will probably post Monday on how my weekend was. Where ever you may be I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
