Hey! Checking in with you and giving you some updates and showing you some crochet love today! :o)
The update on Shane is that he is still missing. Anyone living in the New Orleans area may see a billboard up with his face and info on it. I know one is on I-10 and I think there is another one but I didn't see where the location is. And Johnny has been having one heck of a time. Today he is having surgery to put a shunt in to relieve pressure in his brain. He took a bad turn but thankfully he turned back around. I'm going up to see them next week as I have some time off. My Cin sister is needing some large hugs and she doesn't know it yet but she's going to get some. :o) And that brings me to my crochet love.
The first one I want to show you is something I made for Johnny and wanted to take up last weekend but woke up with a migraine of a headache and not feeling good stomach. I'm not sure how he feels about receiving flowers but I wanted to give him some to let him know that I love him and want to put a smile on his face. Some guys don't like getting flowers. I hope he'll like these. I used a salad dressing jar for the vase, and I used wooden skewers for the stems. Other than that it's all yarn and marbles!! I wanted to make more flowers and stems but with the marbles it just wasn't happening. It's all in 'guy' colors. No girly colors. :o)
My next love is the bag that I mentioned in my last post that I forgot to take a pic of. Only I have put a lining in it. I love this bag. Love the colors. The yarn is Bernat Mosaic.....Oceana I think. Yea I know...I've been having a love affair with Bernat Mosaic lately. I just love the color combo's.
Kiss Me bag... in the same place I found the hobo bag)
And my last love for the day until next time is the wallet I made to go with the blue shell bag. You'll have to forgive my sewing. I am just learning. It's not been easy. The hardest part for me is keeping the material straight to sew a straight line and it not going all askew underneath the foot of the machine. Any tips on how to keep it straight are DEFINITELY welcome! :o) And I kinda boo booed too on the lining up of the material. But ya know what? It was from the scraps of the bag lining so I was limited. And ya know what else? It gives it character...........lol. Sigh...........
So, my bloggy friends, that's my love for you today. I have other loves in the works as usual. One that I started several weeks ago, that I put down, was calling my name and I picked it back up last night. I think that one is on the boards for getting finished in the next night or two. I'm anxious to show you. It's a pattern out of one of the crochet mags to make a bowl. I'm loving it and can't wait for it to be done. This will be the first one I've done. I'm excited!
I hope your corner of the world is just the way you want it to be today and full of love and happiness. Cya soon.
