It’s All About Me ! ! ! ! ! !

It's All About Me

Here it is ! ! ! ! !  My swap, for ME ! ! ! !

This is my swap/challenge/party projects for Natasha’s Challenge.  I finished my lovely green crocheted bag [made with Amigo Nylon yarn], lined and labeled.  I love the way it drapes.  Next I sewed up a project bag using two fat quarters and a few beads.  I made it to hold several balls of cotton yarn for one of my current hooky projects. AND ! ! ! ! ! . . . . finally I have begun my own Ripple Afghan/Blanket   with some every eye-popping  brights.  All of this completed during a time when many, many days were spent at the hospital and outpatient physical therapy session while DH rehab-ed  from a fractured hip joint.  Amazing what can be accomplished.  All this -  -  -  thanks to Natasha’s inspiration.  Please take time to visit her blog Artistic Creations

  2. So I just saw your comments and buzzed right back over here. You will love, love the Kool-Aid dyeing class. I didn't take a class, just went at it. Then moved into Easter Egg Pals Dye.. fun, fun, fun colors.... Then into the real stuff, the Acid Dyeing. A big word of warning, it's way way toooooo fun and very addictive....

    Please, please take some pictures at your class and post.. I can't wait to see your outcomes...

    Have a blast.

    Just avoiding cleaning out another area.

  10. Your work is delightful. Hasn't this been fun? I had such a good time making my Christmas journal & for MYSELF. I have never learned to knit or crochet. Just as a little girl with some embroidery thread in a chain stitch.
    I must go see what else you have going.

  19. Hello Gerry ~ thank you for stopping by and leaving a comment! I love your crocheted tote! My mom crochetes every day whenever she can. She says it is relaxing and fills her spiritual well : ) I have not tried it yet because I am afraid I will become addicted LOL! I am glad you had crocheting to keep yourself busy between therapy sessions and healing.

    Many hugs to you ~ Nichole

  26. I'm so sorry that your husband fractrured his hip, but there have been many times when I would have gone crazy if I wouldn't have had some type of handwork with to relax me! The green bag is great and so nicely lined. The brights will be so happy in your blanket, and your little yarn bag is perfect.

  33. Hi Gerry! Thanks for stoppping by and visiting my blog. I just followed your blog, too. I love your green crocheted purse, it is so gorgeous. I have tried to teach myself to crochet several times without much luck, so I'm sticking to knitting. I like your project bag, too. Can't ever have too many of those! I hope your DH recovers soon.
