Itching To Get Back To Crocheting

January 7, 2016

Good morning everybody.  The sun is shining and the temps have crept up to 26F degrees already.  Later this morning it is supposed to get up to around 40F degrees.  Oh my, I hope so!  I like it when we can keep our inside door open during the day.

Lately I've been getting the "crochet itch" again.  It just doesn't seem right to be sitting and not doing something with my hands.  I found a couple new afghan patterns that I'd like to try this year.  This first one (lt. green) is a variation of the pattern that I already do, and the second one is an oblong shaped large granny square.

I think before I start a new project though, I need to finish the baby cocoon that I was making before my hand and arm started acting up so badly.  I'll be happy if I have it finished before the end of this month. 

I've been procrastinating about making my flight plans for our vacation.  I'm not sure why, maybe it's just the winter blues.  Actually I think maybe I've just been waiting for Joe and DIL Janet to be ready to order their tickets too.  Unfortunately, we've already lost out on most of the better prices.  Next winter, I do believe I want to have my travels plans finished up in December. 

Today I'm waiting for a delivery from the fuel oil company.  They don't give you an approximate time when they are coming, but I have no plans so it's okay.  Yesterday I got side-tracked before I got to start my laundry, so today I'll have to get that done. 

Tomorrow's plans will have to be changed.  I was supposed to be taking the car in for a regular check up but I have a couple of errands to do, so I'll see about changing the car appointment.   I have a gift card to JoAnn's Fabric store so maybe Pogo and I can stop by there while we are out doing errands.

I need to get out my little laptop and make sure it is ready for travel.  This year I want to keep my carry on things as light as possible.  Seems like everything I have gets a little bit heavier each year.  Hmmm, I wonder why this is?

Well, I slept in late this morning, and now we getting close to noon time.  I think I'd best be thinking about what to feed my little guy for his lunch.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a splendid day.

Hugs, Edna B.

P.S.  All the links through the end of December will be removed this coming Sunday.  Be sure to download the QP's that you want before then.

Edna, do not understand your last remark about the blogs. I am not up on any changes.

That green afghan looks very nice, and I understand that it is itching to do something with your hands. I finished more or less one project(have to put it together, but that;s for another day), but I like to be busy too wile I am watching tv.
So I'll have to figure out what to make now. Don;t worry, I;ll find something LOL.
h, so Joe is coming to Florida too? Nice, and of course Janet, so you will be having company and that's a good thing. Hope you soon can order the tickets, and still for a nice price!
Hate it when companies cannot give you a time for delivering stuff. At least they could say if it's morning or afternoon? Good you don;t have anything special in mind, so you can stay home.
I am sure you rustled up a great lunch for Pogo and for yourself, hahaha.
Have a lovely day!

Beautiful artistic work on those lovely crafty treasures you make. Beautiful variation of colors and the light green shade on the baby cocoon is lovely. You take care. Hugs, Anne
