Finally, Something Worth Blogging ABout

I've been in such an inspiration funk lately that, for the past few days, I was accutally waiting for th UPS guy. Around here, they can come as late as 5 PM. But it was worth it.

I ordered five books off of Amazon, but strangely, the order got messed up, and I only received three, while the other two haven't even shipped yet. And when they do get shipped, it will be with some of Daddy's stuff.

A really hilarious book. Full of stuff about being a crocheting and yarn.

Really interesting, though it doesn't say about the pattern if you want to, oh, say, do something Bavarian with only one color.

This one is hugely cool. I'll might just break out some regular yarn and work some of the tablecloths into beautiful blankets.


Well, while we're at the beach, I'm gonna be teaching my Aunt to crochet!

Her interest peaked when I gave her a crocheted blanket for Christmas.

It was a beautiful varied dusty red, tan, and brown granny squared blanket. It was a first-time blanket for me, since I sc'd it together instead of my wonky whipstitch. And, it was also my first time ever making flowers, which I made and sewed onto every other blanket. The flowers were an off-white-nearly-tan, and then I made smaller flowers with leftover yarn and sewed them onto the white-ish flowers. I seriously hope that you have a mental picture of it, since I don't have an accual picture of it! XD

Ever since I gave her the blanket, she's been wanting to learn, and finally we have a chance! So, I'm gonna try my best to be a lot better of a teacher than I was when I was teaching my Wed. nite class. It's only one person, so it should be easier, right??

Well, I hope that I can post soon.

I think I'll might actually start something with regular yarn in the thread book. I've got my eye on a B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L tablecloth.

Okay, so I haven't felt sand between my toes yet..

But, I sat beside the pool yesterday, listened to the jet run, and dipped my toes in.

Funny thing is, we run a salt-system to chlorinate our pool, and we added too much salt, so our pool is nearly as salty as the ocean! Only without the critters, of course.


I saw this picture on Facebook today..

It was taken by the creator of iCarly, Dan Schneider.

Happy Father's Day.

TapTapTapTapTap... Sigh

Nope, still haven't done a thing.

I'll might not post until July, since we're heading to the beach next week. Hopefully, having the sand between my toes and the wave's rush in my ear will give me some kind of inspiration.

Talk to you soon.

Pacing the Floor

I can't think of anything to do lately.

Well, more like I feel like doing nothing.

Not crocheting, reading, writing, play my guitar;



I'll post again when something more exciting happens or I finally touch a crochet hook.

Already a Week?!?!

Boy, a week sure does fly by!

I've crocheting, cleaning, and most importantly, reading!

Last week, I told you about a book dare I decided to go on. I really liked the Harry Potter book, so I decided to read the WHOLE series....

I just finished Deathly Hallows last night, and the series is juts flat-out awesome!!!!
It's ready to go back to the library, with Goblet of Fire and Half-Blood Prince!

But, let's get on with other things...

Last weekend, I went with Momma, my Uncle and Aunt to check out some of the antique shops in Asheboro. I saw some cool crocheted stuff, but one thing caught my eye:

This picture just doesn't do it any justice... it may be plastic, but I think it's beautiful! And a deal, I bought it for only $4.50!

I've been working on a new blanket, as to use up this yarn that was originally for a poncho!

And, yet still, more books!!!

Last night, IRT newest season premiered, and I have to say... Lisa looks awesome as a red-head! I wish that they had a picture of her with her new hair, but there isn't. =(

Well, talk to y'all soon.
