Update on my CGOA Designer Contest Entry

Image
UPDATE: Okay I didn't win BUT I had an awesome time crocheting this Rock N Roll Purse. I crochet it from my grandmother's now vintage thread and cassette tape! Yes, I did use cassette tape, gave it a nice sparkle I think. Anyway, there is always next year and wouldn't it be nice this time if I could go in person to see and enjoy all the entries!





UPDATE: My design entry is done! Mailing it out today, real happy with how it turned out. The judging will take place soon!

Yeah CGOA!

This will be the first ever for me though I have thought about doing this for years! Unfortunately, I can't share what I'm going to send with you so stay tuned.....

Crochet at rest or at desk?

I'm sitting here crocheting at my desk and I began to wonder "where do you crochet" or "edit" your patterns?  Do you restrict yourself to a specific spot in the house or do you spread your craft everywhere?  Hmmm, things we ponder as we create ♥

Kids and sunshine and enjoying a soft rainy day

The yard is coming along nicely and the newest planting area is almost done.  The weather warmed up to the 70's.  Today though is a gloomy soft rainy day, just what we need to gently water the newest plants and grass.  Yesterday took care of our friends 3 and 2 year olds (so much fun!) so having an inside day today is nice.  Those two little ones had a great time playing with ICE and a couple of plastic cups.  Simple fun.  The 2 year old also learned how to roll down a small hill, hilarious, actually.  So, today I can get back to my inside projects with my yarns ♥♥♥ yeah, without feeling guilty that is.  Super Sunday to you all.

Design dreaming

What do you see when yarn inspires you?  A blanket, an accessory, a chic outfit or household item?  Does color entice you in a specific direction?  When you follow that inspiration with hook and yarn in hand does it often become something else or what you first envisioned?  Oh, quell my curiosity please and tell me!  Are we alike in that most often what I envision becomes something else entirely?

Spring in Mid-Ohio has arrived

At least our old lady Weeping Cherry Tree is in the front yard. Many others soon to follow.  Love looking at her glory through the kitchen window.  We've planted 3 more of these in the yard anticipating the day this old girl is gone.  Bloom on!

Every time I think...

I'm going to get ahead, more wonderful ideas pop into my head!  It is the strength of character and personal diligence that keep one on track to complete those other wonderful ideas before more playing with crochet hook and yarn can begin.  Lately, I'm thinking small.  Small items versus making blankets which I love making but my creativity is leaning on the small side with some new and inventive creativity.  I will share but for now they have to rest on the rails until I can devote time to them.  Not to mention its Spring, so the grass, birds, bulbs, lawn mower, work gloves and tired muscles are also clamoring for some yard time....my dirt caked clothes from yesterday are tumbling in the dryer as I write this so off I go, there's only about a 6 foot section left to be opened up.  Have a super day everyone with whatever catches your fancy.
