OHH The Things You Can Get Done

leave a comment »

Today was the first day that I didn’t have to go to a doctor’s appointment or run around getting my hubby set for training next month (which he left for this morning).

I decided that I wouldn’t spend it all day online (Sorry fellow BunkerBabes- I promise to catch up!!) so I actually FINISHED my doily!  Woo hoo…

I was so amped that I broke out my Crown Prince (Estonian Lace Pattern thanks to Nancy Bush) and cranked out a couple of inches!  That is a heck of a lot more than has been done over the last three months- thats for sure!

I think I know where my camera is though I am not going to go crazy lookin for it until maybe tomorrow.

Progress is always loads of fun! And I have 26 days Hubby free to get as many of these projects still unfinished moved over into the finished column.

I saw where someone had a project percentage tracker in their sidebar—

if that was you- could ya let me know how to set that up- PRETTY PLEASE

All Tangled

What do you do when you have three skeins of beautifully white yarn that were set on the bed in a rarely used (and therefore closed) room and your husband leaves the door open for God only knows what reason since he KNOWS there is a puppy in this house that hasn’t yet determined exactly what is a toy and what isn’t ?

Yep folks, I am giving up the working yarn because my stash yarn (which isn’t so white anymore– thank you doggy pup) that I was getting ready to ball now requires full attention and a whole lot of patience.

I finished my doily and its gorgeous. Its in a pineapple pattern. The camera is still MIA but since this particular project was for me then I am not overly concerned of sending it out to a new home with no photo taken.

I haven’t started any new projects lately but I am thinking about crocheting up some curtains for the half wall that separates the kitchen from the living room. I can’t seem to find a pattern so I am thinking I may be working on my first design. If it works I’ll make a matching set for the kitchen.

Off I go. I should probably warn folks- that I am not a very patient person so there may be some ranting later on today.
