Crochet curtains

Wanted to share my version of Robin Sanchez crochet curtain. It was so inspiring.



I plan to paint the kitchen chairs in the new house 6 different colors. Something like this. chairs


Here is my curtain, hanging to block before they go in the house. I will use it to get the paint for the chairs.curtain


Can’t wait to hang the curtains and paint the chairs and have a meal in the house.


Mixing it up in 2015

I considered writing about what was the favorite posts from the past year. However, instead I decided to share something I made this week. I have always wanted to combine knitting and crochet. I got a 4 piece knitting loom set from AC Moore, and some Bernat’s Blanket yarn. My husband wanted a lap blanket from this yarn. After I made the center panel on the biggest loom, I crocheted a shell stitch border.teal blanket teal blanket1

This blanket symbolizes what I think this year will be for me. A mixture of old and new, learning new things to complement what I already know, blending 2 families as one and whatever else life tosses to me. We will be moving into a new home soon, only an acre away but oh so much to do. My son married a beautiful girl in December and with this we gained a daughter and another grandson. We are blessed because they will be living with us. I am continuing to work with special needs pre-k children but hope to expand in the year. I added the charity group Feel Better Friends and plan to work with the local hospital NICU unit this year. I can’t wait to see what the year brings.
