My Crochet Spots

Ok here is where I like to crochet out by the pond. It is so relaxing with the water and there are two lizards that chase each other around that have made this their home. So Foxy [thats her to the right of me] is always looking for them in the flowerbeds. Then I also crochet under the patio cover and listen to my chimes and teh birds along with the pond. And when I am inside here is where I spend all my time in my office on my computer. :)

My Pink Hat

This hat was so cute in the book "Hip Hats" that I had to make one for myself, but since I love pink and burgundy I had to make it in those colors. I used Red Heart Super Saver "Candy Print". I loved how it turned out.

What I am Reading?

Still reading HP 2 and I am not slow just been busy swapping...So I am going to go back to reading it now.. Yeah!! I am sl finished my tote bag from my Tote bag CAL at my crochet group. It turned out looking like a 1970s bag.. I love it. I put purple cotton lining in it and on the strap to give it stability. I also made a bag for my swap partner with Bag Ladies flickr swap and the theme this month was yellow and flowers, I crocheted the flowers on a yellow canvas it really turned out pretty good. I like sewing bags!

Felted Bag Contest2 #1

Contest 2 #1 : How did you get interested in felting? Did you learn it from someone, see a bag you liked? Just want to try something new? If you have a picture of your first project, please include it! Answer: Well I started to see them in the yarn shop and I was really intriged by them and then my Secret Pal sent me one for Christmas last year and that was it. I had to learn, so I got a pattern for an easy one and made it. But I couldn't get it to felt too good so I asked some of the ladies in my crochet group and got the tips and got it right. Now I love them and want to make more so that is why I joined this swap to get more practice and make more felted bags.

SP10 #5 Contest

When I crochet or knit I am usually out in the yard sitting on the patio by the pond. I love to hear the birds and listen to the pond water while I stitch away. The birds come and visit the feeders and churp their songs and if I am still enough they actually come in quite close. However, we have a lurking hawk that eventually will swoop down and fly under and through the patio with his 6' wing span that reaches and brushes by my ears looking for food.

This one day he did it and caught me completely off guard and scared the holy heck out of me and I actually jumped and screamed so high and loud that my project went flying. My hooks and yarn flew up into the roof of the patio and even scared the heck out of my little dog, Foxy, who was sleeping besides me. The hawk never knew I was there, so I probably scared the heck out of it, too. I wish I would have had a video of it as I am sure I looked pretty silly jumping like I did and then having my yarn fly up and get stuck to the wood underneath the patio cover. I mean it was hanging like a spider web... all unraveling....Silly me...

Anyways... I have learned to now make a little movement when I am out there to make sure that old hawk knows that I am sitting there... and i have my CD player on humming tunes of Enya or Conan with their soothing Celtic sounds and I grab my glass of ice tea, [as I live in So. CA and it is usually warm out] I have my flip flops on; I sit down in my lounge chair with my feet up on the foot stool; and I enjoy the water and birds again in a little peaceful setting on my patio where it is very private with the slight ocean breeze blowing the 50' high Oleander bushes and 100' high pepper tree. All I need is a good pattern and some great skeins of yarn and I am set for an afternoon of pure tranquility of just me and my stitching addiction!
