I made this for spring, but it's been too cold to wear yet!

scarf and gloves

Just in time for spring! Haha! Actually, it's been cold here, so I've been able to wear them!

Flowers galore!

I'm enjoying making flowers.... it's making me feel like it's spring even though it's cold! I've made these into pins! I'm gonna give them to my friends for Easter! :)


I guess I need to post my recent projects. I'm falling behind!
I'm making an afghan... it's taking a long time. I've already made 70 hexagons, but will need at least another 70! Here's a sample of some of them.

White House

I was hanging at the White House the other day. It was nice and quiet so I took a few photos. Here's one.... in the East Room.

Last week my dad and his wife Bev came to visit. We went out to eat pretty much every day! YUM! I'm trying to get back to exercising... yuck!

I've been working on a scarf and gloves set. It's crocheted. I'm about 75% done with the scarf and 90% done with the gloves. I have to learn how to add a picot edging to finish both. This was a more difficult pattern than I've tried, but the challenge was fun! I can't wait to finish so I can get some wear out of them! I haven't got a lot of time left before spring and warmer weather. I think they'd look great with a jean jacket. I'll post a photo when they're done!

Time goes by

I can't believe how quickly time goes by! It's February already! I crocheted a bunch of hearts for Valentine's Day.... I made Jake a blue hat...

I arranged a Grainger piece for saxophone quartet. Our quartet will be performing that and other Grainger arrangements Feb 20th. Should be fun!

More fun!

I've been having more fun crocheting.... I made a sweet little creature holding a heart and a booby soda can cozy. Too much fun! I'm gonna make each of my friends a crocheted heart for Valentine's Day. I hope it doesn't take toooooooo long! :)

I have way too much yarn! I bought a huge plastic storage box and it's already completely full! I guess I need to finish a few projects so I can use it up!!! I want to make a hat for Jake, fingerless gloves and a matching scarf for me, a sweater for me, a snatchel for Vicki, a boob soda can cozy for Steve... and I have to finish my basket.

I'm also trying to copy a bunch of VHS tapes to DVD. That's a lot of time.... I also want to make a DVD of Christmastime 2010. At least I started that today.

I'd also like to organize the basement and get rid of a lot of stuff.... the garage too!

I'm never bored. Always some project waiting for me! :)

What a bummer. I had to get my annual physical today. Blood drawn, eyes checked, audiogram, questionaire, and flu shot. Feeling very tired and achy. It might be time for bed.

I can curl up in bed and watch my new Dr. Who DVD! Meglos with Tom Baker! Sounds like a plan! :)

Goodnight all!

Craft fun!

I've been into crocheting and knitting lately. I finished knitting a bunch of little hats to put over a clarinet or saxophone mouthpiece cap. They are so much fun! I also knitted hat and scarf sets to put on bottles for Christmas. Very cute. I finished crocheting my aunt's scarf.... then I crocheted a scarf for my hubby! I just started crocheting a basket yesterday. I'll use it to hold all the yarn I'm collecting! HaHa! It really is a lot of fun!
