Good morning! It’s not a good morning for me. I woke up with stomach cramps and 3 hours later I am still having them. Not sure what’s up with that but I must have caught something somewhere. I’m at work but I seriously thought about calling in this morning. But I am here. The conscientious employee that I am. :o) Seriously, I think I have only called in sick 3 times in the last 12 years. Shouldn’t I get an award for that??? Oh, yea, I have a job. That’s reward enough I guess. lol.
Anyways, I wanted to show you what is and has been on my hooks lately. Not a lot but wanted to share these with you. I have 3 babies coming that I need to crochet for. Well, one was born this weekend when she should have waited until the 11th. She was anxious to meet her mom, dad and two brothers! This blanket is for her. It’s made out of the box stitch. It took a little getting used to but once I had it down pat I have been sailing. It makes a very lovely fabric, wouldn’t you agree? I think that I will just keep going with it as it is and not do the decrease to turn it back around and make the square. It will be a triangle blanky and I will do a border on the two straight sides. Something different. No one will have a blanky like it! I love the mint green color. I think I might do the other two blanky’s in the same stitch. It’s quick and easy and I love the drape of it.
And I have been tinkering with key fobs. I showed you the initial one in an earlier post. These are so quick and easy to make as well. I made two others but they have found homes and I didn’t get a pic of them. One was a star and one was a fancy heart. I so love doing little stuff. The little star man is kind of a weird little thing but I think he’s cute. He’s 3 dimensional. He was kind of hard to do too. It started out as a six pointed star but after the 4th point I decided to put a head on him. lol. Works for me!
So that’s all I have going on at the moment. I hope this finds you all well and happy. Have a wonderful hump day ya’ll! Cya soon!
PS/ I’m using Windows Live Writer for the first time on this post. IT recently upgraded my Outlook to 2010 and when I send myself pics it’s not like it used to be so this popped up this morning! I know Pammy Sue uses it so I figured I’d give it a whirl. Not sure about it…I’ll let ya know.
