Well, here we are at the start of a new week. Can you
believe January is almost over?
We just returned from a short road trip to Bend, Oregon to visit family.
Wow, was it cold there! Yes, Seattle is cold now, but there was just something about
the clear skies and snow on the ground that chilled me to the bone!
We were only gone 3 days, but boy did I miss my kitty babies!
I took this photo from my chair where I often crochet or read.
Lucy decided it was "her time" and not "crochet time."
So...this is only how far I am on my "Shells Galore" afghan project!
I am really loving this yarn though...it's so soft and was on sale for
only $2.99 a skein!
Another thing I love to do in my chair near the front window is read.
Have you read this? Russell just finished it and it sounded very interesting to me.
It's almost 1500 pages though, so I wonder which I'll finish first...the
afghan or the book? Lol!
This thread crochet project is supposed to be coasters.
I simply like the look of this pattern and will probably make more since I have
Shatzie loves this pillow in front of our fireplace.
She curls up here while I read or crochet.
I got this pillow at World Market...do you shop there?
I know my friend Linda does!
Have you ever tried to "thread crochet" in the car on the road?
That was a challenge!
I was getting so excited about this piece, then realized that the reason
it was "curly" was because it had too many "somethings" in the beginning.
So, the plan is to stop here...find something creative to use it with, and
start over! Ugh!
And...since it's been so gray and foggy out, I thought you might like
a break from my "foggy photography"
and like to just see what I have on my desk. :-)
The last time I walked down to the waterfront, I picked up some
smooth stones and wanted to try my hand at painting them!
This was so fun and relaxing!
I'm sure I will be doing more of these.
So, is it cold where you are?
What are you reading or creating?
I love hearing from you...thanks for being here!
I bet the kitties were missing you as much as you did them.
PS.. I do love World Market. I just wish there was one closer to me.
Hope you have a wonderful week!
Just about 12:30 pm, and it is only 6 degrees.
Kinda tells you what tonight is going to be like. :-(
I absolutely love you painted stone. Lots of wonderful uses for that.
I hope you had a great time away, and it sure looks like your kitties missed you.
Have a wonderful day!
Just stopping by to show some ♥. Like always, I think your pics are amazing & I am MADLY in love with Lucy.
I love crochet too but mine has a tendency to become wrinkly on the edge, I guess I must be inventing stitches! The painted rock is lovely.
Great rocks, too . . . I have been wanting to do some, but waiting for warm weather and no snow, to go looking for nice smooth rocks.
I am so ready for spring.
Have a marvelous art filled day.
Your blogging sister, Connie :)
i too think the coaster probably has 'too many somethings' that made it curly :) it's so pretty tho! sorry im not more helpful but it happens to me too when i'm crocheting circular items~i like to crochet & will be trying some finer thread projects today actually :)...
oh and yes-it's been super cold here.brr-take care and have a super weekend...
