Home from Holidays

Well, we got home last night from 2.5 weeks of holidays. While it's great to be home, it was so nice to visit with family and friends we haven't seen for a long time. I even managed to get some crocheting time in, and now that we are back I need to get my orders sorted out and start getting them done. I've lost track of how many projects I need to finish for other people. WHERE'S my LIST! While on our journey, I did find 2 yarn stores that were fun to browse through and found some great deals on yarn. One in Campbell River, BC, Needle and Arts Centre and the other in Sooke, BC. We even went into the States one day and I went to JoAnns fabric and craft store. Overwhelming would put it mildly. So much fabric, lots of yarn, great deals. I went in looking for fabric for my sons Halloween costumes but came out with lots of yarn too. We just can get some of that stuff here. Well, better get to my projects.

Crocheting . . .

I have been finding a few more patterns. I love to use half-double or double crochet - it just seems so much faster, so when I find a pattern that includes it - I've gotta try it.

This is the Best Baby Cloche, with a butterfly.
