Here it is Black Friday. I went to two stores for Black Friday: the local gaming store and the local yarn store. These are my two favorite places to shop. This year we are giving games as gifts or I am crocheting a gift. It feels so good to have a plan and not stress […]

Crochet Goals 2012

December 28, 2011

This Christmas I did not make the first crochet gift. I had great intentions – but just started way too late. With work and other stuff, I just have not had the time to crochet – which makes me very sad. Usually when Christmas is over, I am so mentally exhausted that I cannot even […]

Too Many Projects

August 2, 2011

There are too many crochet and other projects I want to do. It is amazing that when I have something to do, I want to do it right now. It is hard for me to schedule time for crocheting or web work. I need to work on the skill of just doing it even when […]

October 30, 2010

After a record setting day of 90 degrees around Wednesday of this week, I was so glad to wake up Thursday to actual cooler temperatures. This fall has been so warm, dry, and not fun. I mean, I have a lot of crocheting to do for Christmas. I need cooler weather for motivation. After having […]

So in September, I made a list of what I wanted to do to get ready for Christmas. It included about 1/4 of the gifts I wanted to make for December. Unfortunately I got very little of my list finished. Now I need to add to the list and make up my September goals. I […]

Fall Fair

September 22, 2010

With summer finally over, it is time to start thinking about all the great fall activities that are fast approaching. Since I have started crocheting, I have wanted to display something at the fair.
