I've Moved!!!

Yes...you read that right!
I've have been pondering for several months with this space. Fighting with blogger to get things to work correctly and then failing to get things just so.
So today....I made the plunge.
I know some of you are new here which I am so grateful you did, but I so wish you would make a little transfer over to my new place along with some of my old faithful's that I know for sure will follow.  
I will however keep this blog open for readers to gaze upon from time to time but I will turn off the comment section. 
Hope to see you all there!!!!

Bored? Boring?? Boredom!!

This week has been a mix of pure and utter boredom. All of my whips have been put on hold as I had mention in my last post due to a little baby boy who needed a cuddly baby soft blankiee and I won the race. I managed to finish before his due date....yeah for me!!
Now what to do??
Do I go back to making my puff circles???? knowing I will get discouraged soon cause I am running out of the green wool for the border.???
Or..... do I dream through old photos to find a glimpse of inspiration. Something with soothing colors
or a hint of a new pattern???

Should I make another hexi blanket with loads of colors???  Lots of bold or soft colors???  Solids or a beautiful mix????  My mind cannot keep up.

 Should I remake my old craft room, which is now Garrett's room???  I so miss this space. A place where I can run away and call my very own! But what in the world would I do with all of Garrett's things. ( See he never sleeps in his own room....never has. To this day he still sleeps with us...in the big bed.)  I just don't know????

 Someone or something!!!  please dig me out of this rut.

 I hope your week will be more pleasing than mine. I guess it's the way it is living in a crafty, wool making life. Is it just being bored??  boredom?? or....am I just Boring???

sometimes I really wonder!!

a crochet day | mini puff circles

Well, it looks as if I pulled myself out of my little pity party I had a few weeks ago. You see, I ran out of yarn almost a month ago which put me into such a depressed state. (Financial means caused my little problem) I really didn't think it was going to be all that bad. I did have other things to keep me occupied with but really, just knowing I was out of yarn made me severely sad. But thanks to a few sweet friends of mine ( you all know who you are ) I was able to dig myself free from depression.  Thank you all so much!!!

I dipped my fingers into all the pastel colors that I received...well, just about.!  I came up with a idea to make puffy little circles which later will be turned into squares to make another blanket.
Even thought we are in the middle of the most miserable heat wave, ever....my husband keeps the house so cold that I am dressed with socks and house robes, that I really don't mind working on it.

It's not really quite big enough to even call it a blanket, but soon....it will be.

Hundreds of puffs are being made with pretty greys, creams, soft yellow, mustard, and pinks. Ooooo, just look at them all!  They make me so happy. Happy. Happy. Content hours upon hours. Even some of the joining process has started, just to see how it's going to come out.
Can you see the BIG picture....the outcome is going to look so wonderful!!!
