~ my WIP's and other stuff ~
I know - I'm a day late and a dollar short. I joined in at 'Simply Crochet and Other Crafts' yesterday and then forgot to post here. The granny square is the beginning of a baby blankie. Remember 'Le monde de Sucrettes' giant granny along a little while ago? I had fun with that so I decided to crochet another. Notice my white with black spots crochet hook? That was the very first crochet hook handle that I made - it matches my dog Tex - and it also matches the cows in my kitchen. :)
The other project is my 'squircle v-3' pattern worked into another baby blankie.
**Tip: taking a picture of your WIP with the crochet hook helps when you go back to work on it.
This is the side of my back yard. When we bought our house in 1985 all those houses were not there (there's more down the way) - so we have had a privacy problem since. If I sit on the patio, everybody and their brother looks at me as they go by. I wave at them but more than half don't wave back. (How rude.) I know it's really not a big deal but it does bother me. Vince and I can't seem to figure out what to do - we've talked about bamboo, but that is a very invasive plant that will take over the whole yard so we don't want that. We've talked about adding lattice around the patio but that will just cut off the yard. I'm thinking a 6 ft. tall wood fence will do the trick but I'm not sure the City of Bowie will let us do that. Do any of ya'll have any ideas?
This Sunday evening is the 6th season premier of 'Army Wives'. The preview is pretty cool looking - the wives are walking through a storm and one of them "will not weather the storm". I thinks it's Kim Delaney's character Claudia Joy. Kim Delaney seems to have a drinking problem in real life, so she needs to take care of that. What a shame - I remember her when she was on the soap opera 'All my Children' a long, long time ago. Well anyways - that's where I'll be on Sunday evening.
Thanks for dropping by and have a great crochet day. :)
