Well, I think I finally got my mojo going on this crocheted skirt and have come up with a color pallet that I actually like...it took a little time to get it going. So, now I am sitting back and cranking out squares. What a great way to pass the time...especially on these weekends when my husband is out of town!
As I work on this, I am almost tempted to make double squares for a skirt for myself...but I think I would like mine longer so I could wear it with boots and dark tights. We'll see. Sometimes I get these grand ideas and just don't have time to carry them out.
Yes, I am really liking these colors. I am using a smaller stitch rather than the classic double crochet granny. Instead I am doing a half-double crochet stitch. It's a pretty little square.
Today was an absolutely beautiful day! The weather was warm, it was hard to believe it is February! I actually opened up some windows in the house!
As some of you may know, I have a secret addiction to paper and making cards. My sister gave me and my sister-in-law a Cricut machine for Christmas! What a generous gift! It was a special thank you for us helping out with the baby and the kids when she had her heart attack this past fall. I am happy to say she is doing very well now! Okay...I am getting off the subject! Today I packed up my paper supplies and put them in the car along with Phoebe and headed to my brother's for a day of paper madness!
Now, just look what we came up with! Rhonda, my sister-in-law, wanted to come up with some little valentine gifts she could take to work. Aren't these adorable! We did it all with the Cricut. We got six of them completely done while we cut up and giggled. Phoebe also had a blast playing with the kids. She hasn't moved since I brought her home...I actually think they wore her out!
Here's hoping for a good upcoming week! Hopefully Brad will get to come home this weekend, I am crossing my fingers!
