Yipppeee


Yup I ordered it! Of course it comes empty and I will have to fill it. I plan on buying the set of amour crochet hooks in the fall when I return home to visit my parents. I cannot wait!!  This will be my Christmas present from my parents.

They only ship to the U.S. and have tons of different ones to choose from.

I will be updating the page on my Dance on the Beach Blocks shortly. Just have to take the pictures and add them.

I need to try and write on here every week, that is my new plan anyways..

Update and other stuff

I hate Sundays! It means back to work for me and I am kinda over it. I think I need a vacation. But a vacation right now means staying home with my FIL and husband and would end up not being a vacation so I guess I stay working so they don't drive me nuts and look forward to Thursday which is my day off before a 7 day stretch.

I have been working every night on my moms blanket. My 4 year old almost ruined the surprise and told my mom but luckily we were on blue tooth and he was not speaking loud enough for her to hear him. I got frustrated tonight so instead of finishing another piece I decided to buy the pdf version of the dragon fly throw. It is free on her web site but I wanted an ad free version.

Here is a picture of it, click the picture for the Link to the free pattern
This is the Link for the add-free one on crafty (not free)


This is a picture of what is done so far on my blanket. Lighting is horrible

Crochet is better then knitting

Hello Crocheters

Hello Everyone,
I decided to restart a crochet blog just for myself. I needed a place to keep all my links and what I am up too. Hope you like it and the links and such help you out!! There will be more but for now blogger and my computer has decided to give me a very hard time so I will have to tweek it later I guess.

A bit about me
I am a 38 year old married mom of a 4 year old who lives in Alberta Canada by the foothills of the Rocky mountains. I was originally born in Ontario. I have three cats also Jasper, Winnie and Leo. Oh ya and a father in law who lives with us too but I won't get into that one,
I am new and old to crochet as my grandma used to crochet up a storm while I was growing up. She did teach my how to do a granny square early on and I decided to re learn in 2007 by Mikey of the crochet crowd in Toronto. I then stopped half way through my bright idea of a granny square blanket to fit a queen size bed. Which still needs to be finished soon. I have been trying to learn new things and this definitely will be what this blog will be about. Me learning and my frustrations. I want to concur this craft and make my grandma proud. I have already completed some items and will be posting them too so you can see them......have to clean up this computer to find the pictures I think.
Anyways I think I am done rambling now so have a good night and we will chit chat soon!!

TAMMY
WORK IN PROGRESSS.......CHECK BACK LATER TONIGHT
