Sorry about the Hiatus
Hey, this is for Mouse-- here is the link to the gypsy scarf . It is super easy and fast to work up. If you make it a little longer to begin with, you could turn it into an openwork shawl which would look really nice, too.
- I'm posting a photo of what I have been busy doing. The bag in the back is the felted bag I wrote about earlier. It turned out really cool. I need to do some adjusting on the straps, though. It hangs below my hips and tha t is a little long. The blue bag is my attempt at Tapestry crochet. It will be a little over the shoulder purse to hold essentials . It is working up nicely. I like to work on it in the morning while I'm drinking my first cup of coffee. The design is my own-that is the cool thing about Tapestry crochet, you can really let your imagination go. It's about 1/3rd done. The Diagonal piece is the afghan I started yesterday afternoon for my youngest after my trip to Hobby Lobby. I can't wait to see how it turns out--so far so good, bonus is my son loves it already. Yeah!
- I was so excited about the yarn sale at Hobby Lobby this week. I traveled 40 miles to the store only to get there and find that although the sale started that morning, the damn yarn bins for the sale stuff were already picked pretty much clean! Me about three other stunned women stood there going "what the hell"... Do we have to camp out to get the yarn. I ended up spending my fair share,anyway... but I was frustrated. Thems the breaks, I guess. I did chat with this man in line and he was telling me about his 85 year old mother who makes blankets and donates them to a rehabilitation center in the area. She knit about 20 blankets last year and gave them all away. How awesome is that. She loves what she does and makes others happy with her craft as well. That is what it is all about.
- I've started this book called Grandfather by Tom Brown Jr. that my sister loaned me. She carries it around with here in here backpack that is how much she likes this books messege. It is about a Native American man whose entire life is spent living his vision quest in search of truth and harmony with nature. He roams from place to place all over N.and S. America and Canada learning from different people, tribes, and religions and then telling his story toTom. Pretty good so far.
Have a great day--Peace~DAWN
