Finishes this month
Here are two of the twelve pieces for the Lizzie Kate Christmas Spirit Double Flip. I finished one each month. I have almost completed Cookies for March. I am using DMC floss on specialty fabric.
Lizzie Kate's Flora McSample Farm Sampler Snippet. I stitched this on regular linen with DMC flosses. I loved this pattern. The sheep and pig are really cute. Besides it has a sunflower (my favorite).
This is the afghan I crocheted for Hobbie. I used zebra print yarn. The pattern was a single cluster pattern that repeated. The original pattern had fringe. But, since I made it for a guy, I didn't think he would like it. So I made up the border. I did an single crochet for the first round. Round two was a double crochet in the first single crochet, single crochet, skip stitch, then double crochet around. The third round I did a front post double crochet, chain 1 for the next row. Then the last row was a single crochet in every double crochet and chain 1 spot. I finished it today at 5 pm. I sent it home with Jennifer. I hope Hobbie likes it.
Finally, my art project # 8. The question is what is your current obsession. Mine at the moment is Amigurumi. I love crocheting animals for my friends and family. I have actually sold a few of them. I am making myself a lime green hippo right now. I still have to crochet for Tucker and Patrick.
My main focus at the moment is trying to finish my dissertation. I have to finish this year. I spent all spring break working on it . I went to the coast and stayed at the condo by myself. I did this so I wouldn't be disturbed or I wouldn't find a distraction.
I hope to post soon. Thanks for stopping by,
