This is a crappy picture, but I wanted to show you the lamp shade & base I bought at Target the other day. I’ve been looking for a round shade like this so I could crochet a cover for it. The plastic is still on there so it looks like of shiny right now. I will take that off when I’m ready to put the cover on. I think I’m going to make a Granny Striped one to start with. I won’t be gluing it on there so I can change it whenever I feel like it. Now if my arm will just cooperate, I can make it. (Going to a different doc tomorrow to see what he can do. The steroid shot doesn’t seem to have worked.)
About that book I posted yesterday…I thought I had put a link in there, but I guess I didn’t or it didn’t take or something. I got mine HERE. I noticed this morning that Coco Rose had posted about the same book. You can see a picture of another afghan in the book that she is making on her blog HERE. I stared at that afghan picture in the book last night for a long time. I really love it too.
And while I’m giving links, Sandy posted an old Weight Watchers’ recipe on her blog yesterday for Creamy Chicken Tortilla Soup. I will be making it very soon. It sounds super-quick & easy.
I don’t think I ever showed you the other candle jar cover I made while we were on vacation. Here ‘tis…
I used a different type of baby yarn that was a little thicker than the white. I didn’t like it near as much. I think the thinner the yarn the better on these. I will make more when I’m able. They are quick and fun to make for a little instant gratification.
Okay, that’s it from me. I’m off to go piddle around. It’s a piddling kind of day around here.
