GINGHAM and Yarn Bowls....bet you have one in your cupboards?


Not surprising I would figure out how to do something GINGHAM in crochet...
I ordered some cotton / linen yarn from UK, it was here in less than a week...

Again since I do not know how to read patterns, all I need is to look at something
and I can usually figure it out..So I chose 3 skeins of yarn, a dark blue a light blue and a white
and just began crochet last night....
( note it has been less than a month since I picked up a crochet hook, 
if I can do it anyone can)

We made it to our capital city of Ottawa! .....
Our very first MINI INVASION! 
Can I just say, there were many second glances....

317 mini coopers and over 600 owners!



I wanted to show you my take on the MINI people we met ...
I took hundreds of photos and what had me in AWE were ...
well you will see .....

Again MINI people have MAXI personalities ....
I don't think we met anyone we did not LIKE...

Besides we had something in common.....

1. They all have heavy feet
2. They are MINI people 
3. They all have MAXI personalities....

Yes WASHCLOTHS, not dishcloths...........................




This past few days I have felt like GOLDILOCKS, trying to find some comfort or rather
an understanding of crochet pattern of crochet....
I can often look at something and through trial and error can finally come up with something that resembles the original... WELLLLLLL this time not so....
Cori came to my rescue, and voila...the beige one there is what it is supposed to look like.

Buzzing in Washcloths... and future projects...LIKE IN TODAY!



I have been buzzing in yarns....although I felt my washcloths days were over, I wanted to attempt a design on my own....and I wanted scalloped edges...So yesterday after another visit with our VET...
seems Sumatra after her dental surgery, just was not herself because she got a UTI....So with all that time worried about her, I kept my mind and hands busy..
