Really, I should have known better than to brag that I had dodged the crud that had claimed my whole family as victims. But, seriously, I thought I was in the clear. No one had been sick for almost a week and I was feeling F-I-N-E!
Friday visited and brought along, sore throat, headache, and achiness as companions. UGH.
They stuck around and pestered me all weekend long.
I rested, read a little, watched the PBS version of Pride and Prejudice, drank lots of tea, and crocheted two purple ear flap hats. One for my princess and one for my sweet, adorable niece.
I did clean the bathrooms, vacuum and cook a dinner or two, but for the most part, I just sat around. It’s hard to feel ambitious when it feels like someone has tied weights to all your limbs!
While I’m at it, how about all the other crochet projects I’m working on? Some finished…Some in progress…
I started this bag last September and finally finished it this summer! I used the pattern from Lucy over at Attic 24. If you crochet you have to check out her blog! She is so generous and shares the patterns she has created. Which is great for me since I am much less talented when it comes to making up a pattern.
I would have finished my bag this past winter, but I wanted to make it a bit more durable. I know myself pretty well and figured I would be stuffing quite a bit into this bag. I figured I would need to reinforce the bag and straps if I was ever going to use it. However, a hold up occurred because I needed my sister Marisa’s super talented self to help me line the bag. I had a general idea of how to do it, but I know myself good enough, so I waited! This summer I was finally able take a trip to my sisters house so she could lend her savvy knowledge to the project.
Now I have an awesome crochet bag that holds a WHOLE LOT!
Right now I’m working on these granny squares which is another Attic 24 pattern. Thanks Lucy! These will be made into throw pillows for my bed.
I made this basket of fruits and vegetables for my daughter’s birthday last spring. This weekend I started working on some breakfast foods. See the egg peaking out? I will soon be adding another egg, a cinnamon roll, bacon and toast.
Alright I’m done now. I was just needing to share all this crocheting madness with someone. Glad I got it off my chest!
What have you been working on?
