Getting Ready for First Craft Show of the Season

Standard

Right now I am downloading the Square Reader on my phone. Should have done this earlier in the week but it wasn’t on my mind.

Trying to get two pre-ordered scarfs done. Both are ribbed. It is an easy knit as far as the pattern but takes quite a bit of time. One is a solid color and the other is variegated. I have been alternating them as to not get bored and to not “kill” my eyesight. The solid one is black! I also need very good lighting to see my stitches.

Tomorrow night we will be getting our inventory and supplies together that we are taking. My mom and I have decided not to take all of our inventory. Some things we are rethinking and others we are revamping for future shows and on-line selling.

Stayed tuned for Craft show dates and times and for new patterns by yours truly!

Sitting Outside Enjoying the Weather

Standard

I brought Brandy, my doggie daughter, outside this morning to go potty and get some nice refreshing air. It has been so peaceful sitting out here, that my Mom and I decided to eat our breakfast, drink our coffee, knit and work on my blog and FB page out here.

I really wish that I could do more outside because I think I’m being pretty productive! It beats sitting in the house all day. I know when I am on the house I tend to be lazy and watch a lot of TV.

That’s Brandy taking her nap!

Found Projects

Standard

I previously posted that I was looking for some new projects. Well, wish and you shall receive!

Baby Booties, baby blanket and maybe baby sweater for new Great Nephew.

Crochet Grocery bags – It is a set of four and I’m making 2 and my Mom is making two. If all goes well I will also make a set for a friend.

A scarf that I’m redoing to give to one of my Aunts for next winter. I made the scarf and then found a hat pattern that I really liked. My Mom suggested I redo the scarf to match the pattern of the hat. I didn’t really want to because the original took me so long but my Mom had already frogged the scarf! Sigh…….

A Blanket I promised my little cousin Thomas a couple of years ago. Yes, I forgot and then had to put it on the back burner a couple of times to prepare for some shows. (Yes I have a first cousin and a second cousin by the name of Thomas, not related to each other…)

As I’m writing this I’m thinking of promises I made to myself to make for other people….

Blankets knitted, crocheted or Quilted for my other younger generation of cousins I haven’t made anything for yet. Some of the ones that are still really young I may make toys, I do have some ideas in mind!

Fashion scarves or cowls for my Aunt’s and cousins that live in warmer weather and winter scarves for those that live in colder weather.

Hats for charity – thankfully I have a little extra time to deal with those since I take those to camp in Feb.

A throw for both my step mom and step sister. I need to make something for my nephew and step brother but have not thought of anything yet.

I cannot say that I do not have anything to do. What I can say is that I need motivation to do it. Since I started this post I have also come up with some new ideas for my Etsy shop, crocheted and knitted jewelry (arm cuffs and bracelets) and different style headbands. We do have some made but I need to finish putting them together.

Not doing much crafty today

Standard

I’ve been catching up with some shows on Netflix, shows that I’ve saved in my queue, but haven’t had a chance to watch in forever. I think I just wanted a mindless weekend where I could just stay home and enjoy the weather.

I did make it outside with Brandy. We were out for about an hour. She fell asleep outside with her nose in a patch of dirt, Silly Girl! I kicked back took some books out with me, 3 creative and one spiritual – by the way I didn’t end up looking at any – my IPad and some water. I played a few games and watched a show and came back in the house to make lunch.

My Pal and partner in creative crime, Susi, called. We chit chatted for a few and now I’m contemplating what I am going to do next. I really need to clean. I really need to do laundry and I really need to find my next project. Oh the choices!

For those of you in central Ohio, I hope you have the chance to get outside today and enjoy Mother Nature!

I’m up

Standard

I’m up on Saturday morning. I woke up when the paper person threw the paper and hit my front door. My guess is that it was around 6 am. It was still very dark out with no light trying to peak out. I attempted to go back to sleep but my doggie daughter, Brandy heard me stir and she got up. She went into the entry way and got a long drink of water. Brandy only drinks water right before she goes outside to go potty. She has been using this train of thought since February of last year when I had to board her to go out of town. They didn’t take her out and she tried to hold it as long as she could. I felt bad because I thought they took your dog out for potty breaks. They didn’t advertise otherwise and I was so excited to go to knit camp that I didn’t think to ask. After Brandy’s long drink of water this morning she came and got me. It was still dark out and I really didn’t want to get up so I groaned a little bit, I’m sure I said something but whatever it was, Brandy decided not to bother me and went back to sleep.

I had set my alarm clock last night for 8, I went to bed around 1:00 am and thought 7 hours was good for a good night’s sleep. I woke up again on my own, looked around and listened, Brandy was still asleep and my Mom, who lives with me, was still asleep. I went back to sleep myself. I should have looked at the clock first, before going back to bed, because it seemed like I had just closed my eyes when the alarm went off. Brandy heard the alarm and waited patiently for me to get up. I slipped on some clothes, took her out. Ran to McD’s when I was done with her. I came back home and ate breakfast.

I watched two shows of Sewing With Nancy on PBS, half of the Pioneer Woman on Food Network and now I’m watching Desperate Landscapes on DIY. I’m contemplating laying back down for a little bit. I have a lot to do but trying to do it when you’re tired is sometimes self defeating. I’ll finish drinking my coffee and see how I feel then.

Happy Saturday!

Working on my blog tonight

Standard

I’m new to WordPress and still learning my way around. I hope that anyone viewing my site tonight doesn’t end up with whiplash from me changing my theme a few times. Too many choices! I hope I picked one that kind of shows my personality but also conveys what Crazy Craft N Ladies is all about. Buckle up folks you’re in for a bumpy ride…..albeit it a fun one!
