Hello all! It's hot out, so only work on crocheting in the evenings lately.
I'm still looking for a good purse pattern- maybe I'll make a liner with 3 pockets, and small ones in it too, to be more organized, but I don't want a very big purse. I'll go look.
Keep Smilin'! A good laugh- for any reason- will do anyone good!
Ooops looks like I may have replied on last week's thread
More guests arriving today so may not get any more knitting time until after the week-end. Looks like another heat wave heading our way so probably would not be yarn friendly weather anyway.
Hello to all! Linda
I'm still looking for a purse that has more than 2 sides (a piece around the outside middle) because if I make more pockets inside, it needs to be more wide. Many purses are just 2 pieces, put together, then they are thin. I'll keep looking.
I have "cabin fever"! I know you are supposed to get that in the winter, but we have been hiding inside from the heat for too long! The girls don't even care about swimming because the pool water is like bath water. They said they would rather take a cool shower instead. I love to sit on my front porch with my coffee, my yarn project de jour, and my book, but I barely finish my morning coffee out there and then it is just to hot and humid to stay.
My friend's baby shower was lovely. She liked the blankets I made for baby Ella. I spent my birthday hanging out with the girls at home and we each worked on our yarn projects ALL DAY! Saturday we went to a cousin's wedding. It was the girls first wedding and they had a good time. I figured a family wedding was a good place to get them started learning how to conduct themselves at "fancier" events.
Mary - Are you planning to knit or crochet the purse/bag you want to make? I have a pattern for a purse that is knit and then felted. It has a bottom and four sides. I have made inside pockets for it, felted them and sewn them in later. I have also just used a purse organizer, too. I have made this pattern many times and it turns out well each time.
I am almost finished with my latest project so I had better get back to it so I can post it.
"Too hot to be at the lake" ????what's with that and yet I find myself thinking it No A/C here, a normal season we may need the fans on to sleep at night for MAYBE 3-5 nights the whole season, not this year!!! Ah well, we will survive, still better to be here than at home
So with the heat and no A/C translates to; too hot for yarning! Stay cool, ladies; we will be in search of lake breezes today. 100* is forecast with it feeling like 105-110*!!!
I have been so busy. Saturday I made zuchinni bread to use up some zuchinni. Sunday we put 19 bags of sweet corn in the freezer. We are lucky the farmer that gives us the sweet corn waters his so it was very good.
I did start a bonnet last night finally to go with the dress I made for my grand neice. Had started one earlier and frogged it because I didn't like it. I have AC so it doesnt' bother me at night to sit down and crochet.
I got a new couch and loveseat the weekend before but wasn't delivered until last Friday.
Well I had better get back to work. Have a good day everyone. Jeanette
I haven't been doing any stitching for quite some time. Hot here... like with some of you. No A/C but a wonderfully shaded back deck that is quite comfortable.
Anyways late yesterday I began this project and I've spent most of today on the back deck finishing it. It will become a birthday card for my niece... not to plan a card for my nephew.
That's a very nice card. When you get older, you keep those "memories" of cards that were special- and even keep them if they are unique to you.
Nice inside with the a/c on, but still is not real comfortable working with yarn when I know the temp. outside. I'm looking at patterns though.
Survived yesterday, literally set my chair in the lake and let the waves and breeze do their thing
About 7:00 last night until noon today we got a nice steady, oh so needed, soaking rain. Another plus it dropped the temps into the 70s! Finished up a boy's hat, seamed up a toddler hat and started a ladies pillbox hat!
Good to see you Aleida. cute card.
I remember being cooped up by A/C when we lived in the south for a while. So I understand the summertime cabin fever, Annie.
Keep cool! Linda
I have turned my daughter into a yarn crafting enabler!
Remember awhile ago when I said that I was going to use this summer to do some stash busting and finish up projects I had the yarn ear marked for and not buy any more yarn until they were finished. Well.....we were picking up yarn for my daughter's first sweater project (crocheted) and I found Lion Brand Cotton on clearance for $1.97. My daughter had a coupon for 20% off all items, so I added the ball to her purchase and gave her the money for it. She laughed at me because I "broke" my rule and we are only half way through the summer. But, I had the last laugh because I told her that technically I did not buy the yarn she did, so she is just enabling my habit!
Aleida - nice stitching.
I finished the bonnet last night to go with the dress. Now to take a picture for all of you to see. I also finished the blanket too along time ago so will get that in the picture.
Annie I got a good laugh out of your yarn story. I can't resist a good bargain on yarn no matter how much I have. And I have tubs and tubs of yarn.
We need rain badly. We have brown crunchy grass. The farmers are not happy as the corn is burning up.And in Iowa if the farmers don't do well the rest of us don't either. Beans not so much yet anyway. Lucky Linda you got the rain.
Aleida loved the little card. You do such nice work. Too tedious for me. Now back to my knitted sweater that Donna is helping me with and gave me the pattern.
Have a good day everyone and stay cool. Jeanette
