Sunday Stitch and Stash 9-30-18

This week went by very quickly. So many appointments.
I did sew everyday.

I joined a crochet group on Mondays.It is 2 hours a week at the library.  I needed to talk to people taller than 3 feet with a more extended vocabulary than my grandchildren. It was fun and relaxing. I needed something to do with my hands. I am not a hand piecer so crocheting is the next best thing. Unfortunately I had to go buy some yarn. Its been 18 years since I crocheted and couldn't find my yarn. I am sure yarn has changed in 18 years. I did find my hooks. Crocheting came right back to me. My stitches were even. I went again this morning. I had made a hat for the children's charity they sponsor every year. Now I need to make a scarf.

In the meantime I started an Afghan for my 91 year old mother in law.
I did rip it out 10 times but its coming along nicely. It is called Corner to Corner. The yard is Caron Blue Moon.

This week I also cut out 12 pairs of PJ's. Started sewing the patch pockets. All the boys want patch pockets on them to stow their phones, etc. Now I have all the little boy PJs to cut out. They will sew up quickly once they are cut.

  1. Congratulations! I know you can make the 85 now. You are doing some great things. It's funny that I picked up some yarn and started a baby blanket this week, and I'll bet it's been much longer than 18 years since I last crocheted anything. I got away from it and never found my way back!

  2. You had a very productive week!
