Oh for heavens sake, I'm in a blog fog. I've been visiting around with you ladies, keeping current.
I've been enjoying the "fall like" weather, we've had beautiful days and nights here in NE Ohio. I did manage to get some garlic planted before the freeze date. I hope Earl that Squirrel and his kin don't dig it up. They've been very busy....I wonder if that is a sign about the weather to come.
I tried to get crafty with some yarn, but wasn't feeling it. I hauled out some crochet thread out of the mobile craft room ( the tub), I have not worked with thread in some time. And I did pick up 2 cakes of DK Colors in the color of Tulip
It's pretty, but for now no idea what I will make with it. I started a cross your heart shawl in Heather, just not feeling it for now. I'll get back to it. I know I'm way behind the curve, but I've become
interested in Crochet Mandalas. I've learned that Mandala's are the new doily.
I still admire and love the original doilies, however the Mandala's are lovely in their own way,
are loaded with color and sometimes texture, the web is full of ideas. I found one, which I liked, and had seen when it originally came out, but I wasn't ready to make it then, created by a blogger friend of long ago, I have followed her, and made several of her patterns. The header of the Thanksgiving Angel was created by Elizabeth White of Bella Crochet
Isn't this pretty. I have a fondness of the Crochet Rose in the center of doilies. I'm working on this doily now, from my stash, although I did order some shaded pink variegated crochet thread from
I have 3 craft stores near my home, not included Walmart. None of these had the color I was looking for. So I ordered it online. I rather like ordering online, and having things delivered to the house. Rather than running from one store to the next in search of.... What I spend in shipping, I will have wasted in gas, time, and energy. Easy peasy.
That is my story...I'm sticking to it!
Have a good weekend.
