of all these subjects I'd like to address on my blog... the kids.. funny things they've said.. etc. When it comes time where I can get back to the computer, the thoughts have fluttered out of my head into the winds of the forgotten. I keep telling myself I need to keep a small notebook handy in the bedroom and kitchen.. maybe even the car. I just thought, I have this handy little post it feature in my iPhone I could take advantage of too... will have to "think" on this more. ;)
Last week, my mom brought over some yarn. The next day I ran out and bought some crochet hooks. I've successfully made three scarves, 1 hat, and many crochet flowers. I find it relaxing if I'm not having to pull out stitches.
This girl was in one crazy mood... she is SO much like I was @ that age.. it's pretty scary to think about... *lol* Close up of scarf
I did mess up here, at the very end... one end of the scarf has many MANY more tassels that the other side.. eeeks! She still likes it tho :) *go me!*
Samantha with her scarf.. pay no attention to the evilness exuding from my teen behind her ;) (yes... this is one of my traits too.. lol) Sammy just loves her little button flowers. There is one on each side of the scarf, so you see no stitching.
I have no photos yet of the hat or Cameron's scarf. The hat was initially intended for Doug, but it was a bit small.. I couldn't figure out a way to make it larger except to make the brim larger.. that seemed like it would look silly once complete, so I left the hat as is, and Cameron will get it :) I'm gonna wrap it up for his birthday party on the 20th.
My next project I would LOVE to make an aphgan for my baby cousin.
My aunt & uncle lost their home to a house fire several days ago in Michigan. Sad stuff. I can't imagine how devastating it is to lose all your possessions. They lost one dog in the fire. Thankfully, two of the older children were at school, so it was my aunt and the baby home and they got out fine. I pray daily for them.
IN other news... my children no longer are in car seats. We purchased booster seats last week... they are in EL OH VE EE! ♥ Samantha can buckle herself now, and Cameron is still working on learning. I like I can pull their boosters out and put them in any car now... with the old car seats, the 5 point harness was impossible to do that with. We had a hard time undoing the sucker!I have photos on my phone, they were uploaded to my FB account.
Happy windy Thursday to ya!
