Summer 2007 - Week #3

Crocheted 11 dishcloths this week.

I even designed a pattern of my own. They are the top row, second one, and second row, last one.

It's going to start getting too busy at the store to crochet but I must admit, even after making all these dishcloths, I am totally obsessed. Now I am looking at every dishcloth pattern on the net and every pattern book I can get my hands on.

As you can tell, I was crazy for circles this week.

For Father's Day I made The Man a crocheted rug. I used all my left over cotton from all the dishcloths I've been making. I used my favorite "woven" stitch and held two strands of the cotton together. I love all the color combinations!

I'm saving up my left overs again because I want one for myself!

Here's a close- up of the stitch and the cool colors.

Well, week number two at the store and 11 dishcloths made this week!

If you see this woman, STOP HER! Bring her to me! She has taken two of my babies from me!

My Babies! Mason and One. They are very fragile and probably crying right this minute to be returned to their mother, ME!

Be careful, she may not come willingly, she may be armed with a needle or a hook, and she may try and hide the babies from you!

If you succeed in bringing her to me...... I HAVE CHOCOLATE!

Fireworks Related....

One of my kids at school, with the help of his mom, made this special gift for me. The quote made me cry, considering how low my self esteem is these days, and then the fireworks in the background just left me speechless!

What a thoughtful treasure!

When you have to sit at a fireworks store for 5 weeks out of your summer you get.....kinda bored.....especially cause she won't learn to knit or crochet.....so she plays in the rain!

And!!!! Look how fantastic this is.....

They named a new firework after me!!!!!!!!
