I joined the Favorite things swap that Connie was hosting. My partner Laurie does not have a blog so I wanted to show you the package I sent her.
I sent her some shell buttons, a market bag I crocheted, a vintage bureau scarf, a piece of fabric with travel themes, and some Patons Bamboo and silk yarn.
I received an amazing package from Laurie. I forgot to take a picture before I ripped into it. Each item was wrapped in a beautiful pink rosebud paper. Look at all these wonderful goodies she sent me. I feel absolutely spoiled!!!
As much as I love other crafts my favorite by far is crochet. I have started on another bag. I made this with some leftover yarn. It is a practice bag because I wasn't sure how it would come out but I am happy with it so far. It is done in single crochet so it's quick and easy. I am planning to line it and add some handles.
This is the bottom of the bag. It came out great and I will be adding something sturdy to the bottom before I line it.
My sister in law is having a baby and I decided I would try to make my first baby sweater. This pattern was very old and some of the directions were not easy to understand but I muddled through it and the end product is not too bad. I was quite happy with it for the first sweater I have crocheted. Somehow the first time I crocheted the sleeves they were huge and I had to redo them but otherwise it came out great.Crochet is my favorite hobby and I love to try new patterns. Next, I hope to try a tunic for me that I saw in a book recently. Wish me luck.
The ac has been fixed. It is another very hot day here and we are thankful it works. It will be a better night to sleep with it on. The man who came was very nice and he checked the fuses first, that's what I thought might be wrong, and that was it. The total bill was $170 which was not bad. I was so thankful. Then that night our monitor decided to stop working. It wouldn't do anything. I had no idea what was wrong and hubby was not home. The next day he worked on it and it came to life. Thank you God for such a handy hubby.
