I've been a slacker


Well, it's true!   There has been zero moving of the hook, I've tried several mojo. I did begin the C2C with the thread.....not NOT my cup of tea, to many leads and loose strands UGH! Tried various scarf of the hooded variety zip, zero, nada.  I want to move the hook, and feel rather at a  loss when I'm not doing something productively creative.  Oh Bother.

It's about to freeze here, we are experiencing more "seasonal" weather here in NE Ohio. I love the Autumn season, it is my favorite. So short though it seems. On my " I've been meaning to list", that keeps getting longer...plant garlic before the ground freezes.

You know, this getting older for the birds. Just not up to par, oh I've got stuff going on up in my head, but the connection to the bod is a different story. I've been reading up on Magnesium. I am going to try that, they say most of us are deficient and many health problems arise from lack of it. It is an important mineral.

Trying to talk myself into doing something relevant this morning.....there is the usual folding laundry, always that. Grocery Shopping.  I'd like to bake something.....nah!  I'll finish  this up and put us all out the misery.  I'll get something done,  I think I'll have another cup of coffee and contemplate some more....

a project on my hook

Well, I've got something on the old hook, it isn't anything which has been on my radar to make, as I have a few things attempted but for one reason or another just never  took off. You ever had that, you just couldn't get something started? I don't know, but have a hunch at least one of them was pattern related, and the rest were lack of interest at the moment.  

I won't insult you, by asking how many of you have heard of  C2C?  I most recently have heard of it, and had absolutely no  idea that I would attempting in the near future. I'm usually late to the party, so it's no big deal for me, so now we can talk about it.  How cool is it?

I've been trying to come up with something to make for my son. He is a Boy Scout and will be very soon, preparing for his Eagle Badge. I wanted to make him something, in crochet. I thought about doilies, filet crochet with and Eagle on it. I've not ever done Filet Crochet, well I've never done
C2C either, but I'm doing it.  I'm 15 rows in. I found a pattern, and then decided I wanted to do it in thread not yarn. I don't want an afghan, and still as in the beginning of all this wanted something which I hope will be able to be framed, jury still out on that..I think it will be ok.

I'm doing the mini C2C, it is hdc & slip stitches, and it is worked from one corner to the other.I got the pattern from The Crochet Couch

As soon I find my camera, I'll take a picture. 

The Crochet Couch also has a FB page and here is the link for that, the ladies have been helpful to me, and helped me to get started. Here

Welcome to Fall

On Saturday, beautiful, awesome, colorful, lovely, and COOLER Fall will arrive.  I live in an area which goes through all 4 seasons.  By Far Fall and Spring are my favorites, each season has their own beauty to share. There is a big cool down coming tomorrow, we will be almost 90 today, and 60 tomorrow...looking forward to that. Storms are in the offing, and as I  sit with you this morning I can hear the trees  rustling as the front approaches. The air is fresher and I look forward to airing out the house. 

As I sit here, my mind is going through the things I need to do today, not so much a want to day. There is grocery shopping, transportation of my boys to work, and as always supper, what's for supper. Fortunately I have some stuffed shells I made a few days back for such a time as this, heat and eat.  How does your family with left overs?  Somethings taste better the 2nd time around.

I'm hoping to get to the Farmers Market tomorrow, and a new craft store is opening about 5 min from the house, I don't know whether that is good or bad?  If you ask my husband, I know what the answer would be. I don't "need" anything....what I'm working on requires crochet thread not yarn, and I have sufficent of both. I am not a yarn hoarder, I keep what fits inside of the plastic tub. I hope to work on something soon, I've got a few things in the hopper,I just need to start. 

Maybe with the fall like weather I'll get started....oh bother...

Here is a link for you for some crochet fall fun, stop in and visit.
