    Howdy Howdy!!!


    Was nice to see all the suggestions on the last weeks thread to try to help each other!!!

    I found a cute little easy crocheted butterfly video that I saved. Will decide whether to do any or not later on.

    Kim, I am so sorry for your losses! Hugs and prayers!

    Love hearing that some projects that have been in the works for awhile are getting done.

    J, nice of you to think of your friend. Wish our library had nights like that. But a very small town and I just don't know if any would show.

    Rose, I love ordering books from the library. I normally use to buy but when only 1 thing you like out of the book so much easier to borrow.

    What is everybody working on this week?

    Wishing you all a MERRY HAPPY crafting week!!!!!

    Some of my finished projects ... After I finish my friend’s paw print scarf, I’ll work on the Darn Good Yarn subscription box DD got me. It’s a little draw string bag.

    This week:
    Hem my dress—think I will do it by machine instead of hand as the thread blends in ready well.
    Projects from book borrowed from library—due back week from Monday
    Baby blanket
    Check my list of what I need to get done in March and make a plan.

    Ask the library to put up a sign up sheet to see if anyone is interested. Even just two people can start others into being interested.

    Still working on knitted coat hangers for Mum. I have completed knitting 2. Would like to get them done for Mother's Day just in case I need them, if not then into the Christmas stash.

    My quilt is all sandwiched and ready to be quilted. I don’t know if I’ll get it started tomorrow or not. I’ll be heading to the sewing center to register for the 3 day serger class and pick up some more serger thread. Then I’ll run to Joann’s and the quilt shop in Hudson.

    I need to take down Valentine’s Day stuff too. I think I’ll move right into spring and Easter. I’m not going to mess with st pats this year.
    Have a good week.

    Also need to redo my Easter wreath that broke and finish Easter class treat tags and teacher gift tags...

    Now that DS's birthday party is over I can breathe a little! :)

    I need to get out my Easter wreath and glue some eggs back onto it. Should make one for work---or something like it.

    Ran all my errands yesterday. Spent way more money than I planned at the sewing center. Registered for my class and ordered the new edge to edge quilting book. This one has borders in it. Also ordered expansion pack one, it has a snow flake quilt pattern that I decided I needed for my quilt. Of course I hadn’t already purchase that one.
    Joann’s was full of poorly behaved children. I had planned just roaming up and down all the aisles but the screaming and out of control children changed my mind. I got the few items I needed and left. One child was climbing up the shelves and his mom didn’t care. Next time I go I’ll make sure there is school that day. I didn’t buy any extras that way so maybe it was a good thing.

    I will be having surgery on my rotator cuff on the 28th, so my crafting will be greatly curtailed. I should be able to knit a little. I might try some CCS to see if I can do it without moving my shoulder.

    In the meantime, I'm hoping to finish April, May and June pillowcases so they are ready to mail to DGDs. I'm pretty sure I have the fabrics.

    I went to Open Sew today and finished up a couple of tissue box covers for DD, worked a little on a table topper for me, and made a small scissor case and started a second one. They will be gifts.

    Back from Mum's. We made 8 reasonably large fabric bags that will be used for Christmas gifts instead of wrapping. they will be used by DH and DB. They were quick to make up. Mum has crocheted tops on tea towels and I need to sew buttons on them. They will be gifts for the ladies at work.
    Finished the 3rd coat hanger cover so only 3 more to go.

    Katrina ~ It's so wonderful that you craft with your mom!

    I downloaded a knit hat pattern yesterday that I want to try.

    Still picking away at my to do pile here. I’ve decided only use 2 of the round table cloths to make a tree skirt. the others along with another table cloth I was going to “ fix” will all go to the thrift shop.

    I have been moving around a chenille Hop Along Cassidy bedspread that was my husbands. I decided this morning (as I was moving it yet again ) I will appliqué the design on a throw for him for Christmas. The bedspread isn’t in the best of shape - it’s from the late 50’s early 60’s but the raised design on it is intact. I’m pretty sure I can make it work. The rest of the throw will be a quilt pattern ( not sure what yet) and use western type themed fabric. I have nothing to lose. It’s been in a grocery bag in a tote for 13 years in my craft/ sewing room and before that shoved in the back of a closet at his moms.

    Katrina nice that you are able to craft with your mom.
    Myron’s mom. Can’t wait to hear how the quilt project goes.

    Dress is finished as is the baby blanket. Have the baby sweater pattern printed off, yard purchase and have it started—tv crafting project. Have a another sewing project on the go as well.

    The pattern for the blanket called for four balls but I only used three. I can not find my receipt for the yarn to return it. Since I can’t find the receipt I figured I could crochet up a doll blanket with it and include with the gift.

    Yes, I am very lucky. Mum lives very near by and we share a lot of the same interests. we bake and craft together and we both love Christmas so that is another thing that we share. I certainly count my blessings.

    Got the sewing project done and fabric pulled out for the next one.
    Had to pull out some of my knitting as once the band was done I forgot to change my needles to the larger size.
