With the New Year Comes Ambition....yikes!!
While I was waiting for later to come along, my husband got the cleaning bug (yes...lol, I will freely admit how VERY lucky I am and will even more freely admit that he can clean house like nobody's business!) somewhere in the fray, he tossed the bag (without looking in it, I'n sure) in a box destined for garbage day. I can't really say what happened next, but normally he NEVER would throw away my precious fabric! I am thanking my lucky stars that it wasn't Tuesday night! ...now 3 months later I go to find it and it's nowhere to be found, I get frantic and enlisted his help, saying more than once with total confidence, "well, we know that you wouldn't throw it away..." Anyways, I love a happy ending!!
You may have noticed that there are some new buttons on my sidebar, thus we come to the abitious portion of the New Year...I have joined 2 new swaps!! The no sew block swap with Welcome to my World and the modern siggy swap with P.S. I quilt, this is in addition to the swaps that I normally participate in on swap-bot...cringe...sigh...oh well, looks like I am going to be really busy this next month!!
Attic24 has a wonderful tutorial on crocheted hexagons...no really, go ahead and check it out, I'll wait while you do...Isn't her blog just lovely?? I am totally loving her use of colors, in fact, I haven't been inspired to crochet in years!! She used Rowan cotton yarn while I purchased the ever-dependable redheart supersaver skeins @ $2.28 and let me tell you, those puppies are huge! I will be crocheting my little heart out...or as long as my wrists hold out...
