So in an attempt to improve my crocheting skills I made a bag with Red Heart, acrylic, variegated Monet yarn with a single crochet stitch. My grandmother picked the yarn before her death, so the yarn – and now the bag – have sentimental significance. It took a whole skein, plus a little bit for going back through the spiral closure for extra strength, and some blue for the strap. It’s pretty, and large enough to be an overnight bag, or to carry some library books. (:
Instead of starting another crochet project I’ve been painting. The bathroom is now tan and brown beachy with black sparkle and teal accents. The kids’ rooms are getting paint too. So my hands look like this…
Also made a 2016 planner so I can plan the kids’ school work for their second semester. It’s beautimus. The full sized, wide ruled, 1 subject notebook has 60 neon pages. Each spread is divided into one week for the 2016 calendar year. It’s funny how my phone camera tried to compensate for the neon by turning the white tablecloth off-shades. The page colors are neon orange, green, pink, and highlighter yellow (notice the suddenly purple tablecloth). Anyway, I used washi tape to demarcate the months and alchemic symbols for each of the days because they just look so cool.
Lastly, I’m really looking forward to the return of cooler weather, cozy flannels, and hot chocolate.
Until later then,
