I recently ordered ten patterns from Sarah London when she had a special offer of 10 patterns for $10 (AUD). That comes to a little over $1.05 each in US money in case you were wondering. I was thrilled to get this great deal. I love her stuff!
Anyway…I’ve become obsessed with one certain pattern:
I love making these. They are easy and quick once you learn the pattern. I only had to make one before I had it down and could make them without a pattern. They may look intimidating, but they’re really simple. I love the three-dimensionality of them. It’s brilliant I tell you.
I noticed today that Sarah is extending the sale and has even added 10 new patterns to the mix. I may have to go get more even though I haven’t tried all of the others I bought yet. If you’re interested, check it out HERE.
I don’t know yet if I’m going to make a whole blanket, a baby blanket, or just a pillow. I need to make up my mind. Or maybe I’ll make all three! All I know is I don’t want to stop making these squares! I may make a pillow from this one and choose new colors for a blanket. What do you think? Is the aqua color too much for a blanket? I could join them with a round of white which would dilute the aqua color a bit. I’m itching to make a yellow flower…and a purple one…and…and…and…
My house is getting a good cleaning today. Because of our vacation and other things, she hasn’t been here in 4 weeks! Yikes! Now I have done a few things like vacuum the dog hair up and clean the toilets since the last time she was here (and I always keep my kitchen clean), but my house has not had a proper cleaning for a long while and is overdue. I love a clean house. She probably hates me because there is crochet paraphernalia and yarn EVERYWHERE. I try to pick it up so she can clean, but it’s still in multiple locations throughout the house in semi-neat piles. Plus, my dogs follow her around and steal her sponges and rags. Hee-hee. We’re always chasing them around trying to get them back. That’s why when she’s finished in the master bedroom and bath, I corral them in there and stay with them until she’s finished.
The NASCAR big boys are here this weekend. We’re not going to make it out there again this time. It’s so much fun to go though. That is something you definitely need to do at least once in your life even if you’re not a racing fan. It’s an amazing experience live and in person. You can’t believe how loud and FAST those cars are in person. The television just does not capture it. The first time I went, I just sat there wide-eyed with my mouth hanging open. I was stunned and exhilarated. You can feel it throughout your entire body when they zoom by. I just got the chills thinking about it as I typed that. I’m telling you, it’s just freakin’ COOL!
Does that make me a hillbilly?
Okay, it’s time for me to go hide in my room until the cleaning is finished. I’m going to go look through some recipe sites and see what I’m going to bake for this weekend. I’m making a meatloaf later today, but I need a dessert too. Can’t wait for those leftover meatloaf sandwiches!
