Busy week

Here is my third finished object this week. I swear my hook is about to fly away. I am trying to get a few things done before my surgery in 2 weeks.

This is another pattern that I has the pleasure to test for

Better run. I have a couple of more projects to get done.

Enjoy and have a blessed day!!

Second FO of the week.

Here is my second FO of the week. I responded to a post at Crochetville to test a shawl for a member. The pattern called for bulky yarn, that meant a trip to Michaels. I'm glad I went. I found this really cool yarn. It's Patons Nuance which is an acrylic/wool/mohair blend. The best part of this yarn was it was on clearance for $2 a ball. I put extra fringe on this shawl so it ended up taking me 5 balls to make this. Bottom line--new shawl cost me $10 and about 5 hours. BTW--this one is mine.

I should have another FO by the end of the week.

Enjoy and have a blessed day!!

Another Finished Object

Here is the latest doily. This is the Fair Play Doily from Kathy. This is my first attempt with size 20 thread. I really enjoyed working on this doily (even though it took me awhile).

There should be more pics to come soon.

Enjoy and have a blessed day!!

I know. I'm a bad blogger but with all the swaps ending at the same time I have been keeping a couple of things under wraps. Well, all the packages have been received and I can now show pictures.

This is my finished Candy lace shawl (pattern available at Anna's). I love the color. I can definately see myself making another one of these. Very easy pattern and quick too.

This next shawl is a seraphina made with Joann's Boucle Sensation. Another quick and easy pattern.

I only have one more swap to finish--another shawl. LOL. I am hoping to get this one done before I have surgery on August 3rd. I am having carpal tunnel and deQuervains release. I so need this surgery. I am hoping that after the surgery I will be able to crochet again without pain.

I am taking a break from the swaps for awhile also. I am planning on participating in the Autumn Secret Pal swap at the 'Ville but that should just about be it for the year. I am wanting to crochet a few things for myself.

I will try to post my WIP's next week.

Enjoy and have a blessed day!!

July 2

The new patterns have been released at Lullabies and Lace. This pattern for the Cheeky Squares Apron is also a free pattern. Go on over and check our Anna's patterns. She has quite a few that are free.

In other news.....I am almost finished with my swaps. I am going to back off the swaps for awhile. I just am not finding the time to crochet the stuff that I want to test. I am still planning on participating with a couple of swaps. Here are the ones that I still have to send out.
1. 'Ville Secret Pal - Mailing end of this week.
2. Spoil Me Because I deserve it - Mailing end of the month
3. Squares in Six - Mailing end of month
4. Shawl swap - waiting to hear from my pal to determine mailing date.

I mailed out 4 swaps last week. Whew--those deadlines ended on the same date.

I will report a status on my WIP's on Wednesday. I am also hoping to have something to show you later this week.

Enjoy and have a blessed day!!
