I Am Playing Catch Up

I am playing catch up with my blog. I finished my pouch (pic one below) (for my crochet books), and it didn't turn out the way I wanted, but it works andwill hold all my books. I ordered 3 more crochet books, and can't wait til they get here. Needless to say, they will fit in the pouch (made it extra large). LOL! It is the first thing I have ever tried to make without a pattern, so I can't complain. Pics 2 & 3 are of the blanket I am making for my step-grandbaby that is due in October. At the rate I am going, it will take til then to finish it. I keep wanting to try all the patterns I see on Crochetville. Which takes me to pic 4. It is my attempt at AJ's Wrist Bag. I made it for a little girl that goes to my Mom's church. Also in the pic is a scrunchie I made to match the purse. First scrunchie I ever made.

My WIP's as of right now are:

Blanket for grandbaby
Baby cowboy boots

Until next time...... Keep those crochet hooks going!

Can't Sleep

For some reason I couldn't sleep, so I got up early and have been visiting Crochetville. Figured I needed to update my blog and now was a good time.
I hurt my back last night, and I don't know if was the pain pills or what, but all I could do last night was dream or think about different crochet things I want to try. I have no imagination... I am telling you, NONE. But, last night I kept getting these neat ideas of things I want to TRY to make without a pattern. For me that is a crazy idea because I have no idea how to even start if I don't have a pattern for something. Anyway, I got up and decided to take a composition notebook and write down my ideas and how I thought I could go about making them. Wish me luck, ALOT OF IT! LOL.
For someone who likes to finish what I am working on before I start a new project, I have also started more than one at a time. I guess I have gotten bit by the bug. You know the one.... where there are so many things you want to try and you just can't stand to wait. Thanks alot all of you Crochetville junkies! LOL..... that's right..... I blame you! All the pretty patterns ya'll post. I just couldn't take it any more. But.... I will also give credit where credit is due. Because of all you Crochetville junkies, I have started to branch out in my crochet, and ya'll have help to awaken what I didn't know was there... My Imagination! So many thanks!!!

Nothing much happening

Like the title says... nothing much happening. I did finish the lapghan I was working on and have started on the baby blanket for my grandbaby due in October.
I took my first batch of preemie blankets to the NICU today. They took me on a tour and let me see all the babies. They are soooo small and sooo cute. I had never seen a preemie baby up close, only on t.v., or after they were a few months old. I hope the families who recieve them get alot of use from them.
Well, that's about it. My life is a bore compared to some peoples. I don't have alot to post or talk about cause I just crochet, watch t.v., and go to Crochetville. That's the way I like it tho. Slow and simple! I will try to post pics when I get more done on the baby blanket.

Slow Going

It's Tuesday and I still haven't finished the lapghan I started. Part of me wants to stop and start on the future grnadbabies blanket, but if I do that I may never finish this one. Unlike alot of you from Crochetville, I have a one track mind when it comes to projects. LOL I think I am also alot slower(could get more done if I left computer alone). Any ways... I am trying to get at least 30 lapghans done for the nursing home before I take them, and I am on # 6, so I have alot more to do.
My problem is I see all the wonderful patterns and want to do them all! Guess I better learn to multi task my crocheting.

Another day and I have finished my crocheted hook cases. The pink one is mine and the purple one is my mom's. I really enjoyed making these. They are really easy to make and since i can't sew (LOL), this was my solution.
My hubby is now an official Crochetville widower. I really enjoy logging on to see whats going on with everyone and what new things I can learn that day. Since I joined I have learned about so many things I had never heard of and the people are great.
Now I have to decide what I want to make next, so I am going pattern hunting!

At Last!

I decided to join the rest of the world and start a blog. I have no idea what I am doing so please be patient.

I am currently working on lapghans for our local nursing home. I just finished some preemie afghans, a couple of preemie hats, and 1 pair of preemie booties (would have made more but ran out of baby yarn. lol) . I don't have the room to make alot of things and have them around the house (yarn takes up alot of room already), so I try to make things I can donate to hospitals and such. With that said , I haven't made much other than 'ghans, so my experience in chrochet is limited.

Here are pics of some of the preemie stuff.
