Well, let's see, the past few days I have been crocheting my heart out.. single crochet, half double, double, triple, half double triple trouble, you get the point. I have been able to single crochet for several years but never continued in the lessons. My mother tried on several occasions to show me more but after 40+ years of practice, I couldn't even see her fingers. they were a blur and well, the lessons, never went too well. Until I came across The Happy Hooker. Debbie Stoller does an amazing job of cutting through the crap, and with fabulous illustrations, it worked miracles. As shown in my pic, I have almost completed my first granny square.
Yay! My true inspiration for actually learning how to crochet came from Alicia of Posie Gets Cozy. Oh good gracious! I just adore her photos, and her studio is to die for!! Dee-lish colors, fabulous finds, crafty goodness and terrific storage ideas just float on the bright blue walls! If you haven't peeked, you really must.
Here are some other busy hands.. I caught miss T poking her fingers in an apple pie that my sister in law had made. While licking them clean she kept saying, "Uuumm.. that really good." Uuumm.. really good chicken pie." She got that from Chicken Run. "Chickens go in, pies come out.." Yep, I'd say it was the tastiest and sweetest chicken pie I've ever had..
OK, OK... due to an overwhelming response that I am getting in emails, I will turn my comments back on. :) Thank you for all the love, I have missed seeing who has stopped by. As always, leave a comment if you wish, but I won't be devastated if you just stop and peek either!
