Life's LIttle Bumps

What's the saying? "Sometimes life throws you a curve ball"..I think that is it. Well, life threw one at me and I think I am playing dodge ball with it. Just as long as the ball doesn't hit me, things will be fine. (not medical, just personal) So, between the crochet slump and playing "ball", I haven't felt like posting at all.

After a weekend retreat with some friends, I have come out of hiding and am here to give the crochet up date. Really didn't think there was much to report on, but my hooks saw more crochet action than I thought. Another yo yoghan was completed (#10) and another afghan (Jacob's Ladder) is on the hook. Trying to use up what is in the stash. 2 more dishcloths have been made to go in the box heading to the women's shelter on the reservation. 170 something 5" grannys were sent to one of CFAC's collector of squares (sure hope you have room for them Monica). Those used up quite a bit stash. 5 hangars were completed. And a coaster/small doily was made for my best friend. 10 bookmarks are completed - 40 more to go. These will be going to the infusion center.

Now I am off to see what you all have been up to.

Been awhile, I know. Just have been in a crochet slump. This is a lapghan that took forever to finish (thanks to the slump). It is a pattern called July 4th Fanfare (or is it 4th of July Fanfare?) Mom calls it a basketweave pattern.
Yo Yoghan #10 is a little over half way completed. Also, I have been trying to work thru my stash making granny squares. Have over 60 completed. Once the box is full of granny's then they will be mailed off to another CFAC member to assemble into lapghans/afghans for one of the causes we support.
Earlier in the year, I challenged LuAnne from CFAC - for every stuffed toy she made for the Infusion Center, I would make 5 bookmarks. WHOOPS! The crochet slump could not have come at a worse time!! lol She has commited to making 10 toys - and I think I just need to be comitted!!! I think I have 7 done. Sooo far behind.
