Week 5 - Icy Weather begats progress

 As you may know, last week was a wash here in the south.  We had 2 inches of ice, not snow.  I basically spent Tuesday and Wednesday in the bed with the cats watching movies and working on my plastic canvas.  Why in the bed?   Why else? and because it was the warmest spot in my house.  I watched all 3 Mummy movies, all of the Twilight movies, all of the Bourne movies, as well as, Hansel & Gretel.  I started the Harry Potter series but only made it through the first 2.

On Tuesday I finished the duck, basically.  I still need to get a yellow feather to attach to it.  Other than that, I am finished.  This one was pretty quick to finish.  Everything was either yellow or orange.  My sisters and Liz thought it was cute.

On Tuesday night, I realized that I didn't have a hat.  Why you ask?  Well, I don't really look good in hats besides why would I need a hat in the south.  It never gets cold.  (Yeah, right). So after I finished the duck I went looking for some yarn and a pattern.  I choose the Red Heart light raspberry yarn.
The pattern was a pattern that was on a band of Red Heart yarn.  It was a really quick crochet.  (I finished it in less than an hour).  I wore it to bed for the next 3 nights until the temperature warmed.  The picture I took of myself looks like my Wii U Avatar.  (that's really funny).

Easter Bunny

I started the bunny on Wednesday and finished it on Thursday.  My mom likes the bunny the best so far.  So on Thursday, I actually got up and cleaned a little in the house.  I cleaned my room, the hall, and the bathroom.  The cats decided it was time to go outside (that mean old vacuum was making too much noise).

On Friday, I took my mom to Walmart in Hattiesburg.  Big mistake.  As my friend Jenny said,"People are going to be out and about on Friday because they can't stand staying home another minute." AND it was the end of the month, so people were getting their regular end of the month supplies.  When she was finish shopping, I took her home and went to meet Liz at her house.  We went to Hattiesburg and had lunch at Longhorn's.  I had the baby back ribs (umm umm good).

Saturday was spent cleaning my office.  Well, it was spent straightening up my craft boxes and labeling them.  I bought another 2 x 3 cubicle shelf from Target.  (I put it together the night before.  As usual, tools and I don't get along.  I used the wrong dowel when putting it together.  So I used the pliers to pull out the dowel but I ripped a hunk of skin off my finger first.  Note: when I was younger I wasn't allowed to use a butter knife because I cut myself with one.)  But since it is just me I put the shelf together by myself.  I put all of my crochet yarn in it.  You would think that it wasn't a lot of yarn but it actually is quite a bit.

Happy Clusters Granny Square

Saturday night, I worked on another square for Michelle's afghan.  The square is called the Happy Clusters Granny Square.  It was really simple and turned out really pretty.  I thought the other two that I have completed were 7" by 7" but they are 6" by 6".  So, think I will go around them one more time with a green.  Break up all that purple when I put the square together.
