maybe next year.....

A little while ago the NCM had a workshop on learning how to crochet. I was disappointed that I couldn't go, but that was the night we went to the circus. But I did want them to know that even though I was not there physically, I was there in spirit. So I had this teach yourself crochet book lying around for a while and decided to give it a try.

And me being the adventurist that I am decided that I was going to make a afghan, but not just any afghan probably the hardest one a beginner could make. It's a good thing I have faith in myself. I found this pattern online and modified it a bit (who do I think I am). Maybe next year I will have used up all the stray yarn I have and will have a pretty neat although imperfect afghan to show for all my efforts.

Wish me luck!

what would you do with $100

You could do alot with $100.00, but if you have love of fabric then you would do this.....

that is what $100.00 looks like in fabric. I have to say that it was my love of fabric, my unfortunate impulsivity, and sale fabric at hancocks....what is a girl to do? I better start creating something soon, or my DH will most definately be putting me out...lol!
