Hello Again

Well it has been awhile and I just can't seem to keep this updated. I keep on trying to but life just seems to get in the way.
Today is my second wedding anniversary. Doesn't seem like it has been 2 years but then we have been together for 17 years total.
Lately I have been doing mostly crocheting. I am totally into amigurumi right now.

This is my monkey family the pattern is Little Bigfoot Monkey by Sharon Ojala. I love this pattern. I made an elephant from her pattern as well but haven't sewn it together yet so don't have that to post. Eash one of the monkeys in the picture has a home and will be going there soon.
This is also one of the hats I have made and this pattern is from the crochet zombie. She has some great hap patterns that I love as well. I have done some others of  this as well. I did a couple in the colors of the Washington Redskins for my hubby and my daughters fiance'. I have made some just plain beanies but can't find the pictures. I have been doing ponchos as well. I am going to make some more of those as well.
I pulled out some of my cross stitch and will try and work on that. I have several UFO's there so I should do something with them.
Well I am off for now. got some stuff to do before I head home from the office. Hope everyone is well and has a fantastic day! Thanks for stopping by, I love you guys!

Been Awhile as usual lol

Well it has been awhile since I have posted. I have had so much going on. Seems to be alot of conflict everywhere lately. I have been crocheting alot and really enjoying it. I can't seem to get the stuff out in the mail though. I guess that is normal for me though. I plan on posting some pics of what I have been up to for some reason lately I have been hat crazy with crochet. I found this completely adorable pattern and tutorial for a pair of high top booties. I don't have anyone small enough to make them for but I am going to crochet them anyway because they are just too cute. I am also going to try and modify the pattern so maybe I can make them bigger for my grand kids. I just think they are that cute. They look like converse high top sneakers.

I am also thinking about trying knitting again. I haven't done it since I was a young girl but I think I might see what happens there. I have broken out the cross stitch but I wasn't really doing so well at that. Not sure why but I am gonna get some more of that done as well.

I will be back soon and post more. Thanks for stopping by!

Finished Stuff

Well lately I have been a crocheting fool, lol. I have finished a bunch of stuff. Lets see I finished several washcloths, a cradle purse, a large purse for myself,  a soft soap dress for my daughter's apt several headbands and scrunchies. I know I am missing a couple of things but I am at my office where it is kind of slow this morning so I am taking the time to post since I haven't been able to lately.
I have been looking at some of my cross stitch as well. I am thinking it is time to break that back out. I have also decided that I am going to relearn some knitting. I haven't knitted since I was a little girl. I am thinking I want to try to knit some socks. My mother says knitting is easier than crocheting. I guess I will find out, lol. Well guess I should get some work done so will sign off for now. I will be back!!

New Stuff

Well I have been doing alot of crocheting lately. I have a bunch of finished projects. I feel like I am getting alot accomplished. I am also the co president of crochet group here. I am having a great time lately with all this. I have also found a couple of cross stitch projects that I have started and not finished which I am planning on working on as well. I have been teaching myself some new stitches in the crochet area and made a scarf from the crocodile stitch. It turned out great. I will post some pictures later. I feel like I have a renewed interest in all of this. The crafting, the blogging and all. I hope it keeps up because at least right now I am totally psyched with all of it. So lets see what happens. I am going to update this more often because I will have stuff to update it with, woohoo! So lets get going!
Thanks for stopping by, love you guys!

Okay so I suck, lol. I just always seem to have so much going on and just don't get anything done on here. I keep making resolutions to do better and I just keep failing. Well here I go trying again we will see. Lately I have been crocheting. I want to learn to knit but I am a little intimidated by that for some reason. My daughter in law does a fantastic job at it she always has something new that she posts on her facebook. I am impressed. Then there is me I am working on a pair of socks and have one half done and have been working on it for a week. Of course I still have Christmas presents that I have not mailed out. I am not sure what is wrong with me that I can't seem to get things done. I do try it just doesn't materialize. Some day maybe. If anyone has any suggestions let me know. LOL I did get a case for lack of a better word made for my IPOD. It is ok nothing spectacular but it is a finished project. Have been looking at my cross stitch stuff as well. I am trying to get organized. Slowly but surely. I pulled out a couple of half finished projects to carry along with me so lets see what happens there. I also discovered a couple of pod casts. Mommy Needs Yarn and Addicted to Yarn. I enjoy them both but have just discovered them so I am way behind everyone else. I am enjoying them though for sure. Well it is getting late and I am on call tomorrow for the rape crisis center so I have to charge my phone cuz I have to put it under my pillow in case I get a call. I will try as always to do better hopefully that will happen. Love you guys and thanks for stopping by.

Stitching Mojo

I am working on getting my stitching mojo back. Working on small projects and starting to itch to work on the Monopoly Board. I am hoping that means it coming back. There just seems to be so much going on. Between work and just plain life it seems like nothing ever gets done or atleast it feels like nothing gets done. Am getting ready for a family get together hopefully everyone invited will come. We will see.
I am looking for a wedding sampler to do. I didn't ever do one for my first marriage but I am thinking that I really want to do one this time. I haven't found one I really like yet though. I have been sneaking a little bit of stitching in at the office because it is so slow I have a little time and I do like to try to be productive.

Keeping Up

Ok, so this has been a year so far. My mom was pretty sick but doing better now, I got married and so much more. I have not been keeping up and am frustrated. I broke out my stitching and decided to start on something small to see if I can get my stitching mojo back. I have been working on some Celtic sympols. I have donethem before but want to make some more coasters. They go quick and are pretty so I am thinking they will help.
I also got married in May to my long term boyfriend. We have been together for a long time. He finally decided that maybe getting married would be a good thing, LOL. It was crazy. Only one of my daughters was able to come. I had wanted all 3 of my children there but it just wasn't something that could happen. It was nice though.I am trying to get it together and do all of the things I want to like keep this up and stitch and just get it all together. We will see how things go I guess and hopefully I will be better. Now off to see about some dinner. I just wanted to catch up a bit while I was thinking of it or I know it wouldn't have happened again. Love you guys talk to you soon.
