I've going to be moving a few of the free patterns from my geocites website over to the new pattern site. I just posted the first one, a crochet hook case, here . The crochet case, designed by Margret Willson, was the most downloaded pattern from my website. The geocities website will be closed for good shortly.
Sometimes you just want to crochet for the sheer pleasure of it! I really shouldn't complain, but when you have decided to make crochet a business for yourself, you can't always just crochet what you want to. As I browse around the web, and look at all the beautiful projects that others are crocheting and knitting, it sometimes makes me want to put down what I am working on and start another project! But when you have crochet work that is promised to another for business, you can't just do that! So for the last few weeks I have had crochet envy! When I saw Drew's beautiful Seraphina Shawl today, I realized, yet again, that I am dying to just make some nice shawls or scarves or baby things for Jacob, but I can't......not yet.........Not that I don't love what I do, because I do, truly! Anyway, as always, back to crochet and paperwork!
Whew! What an incredible two weeks it has been! I had been terribly sick with a horrible flu/cold, that I finally had to go to the doctors for last Friday. He put me on antibiotic and I really thought that I would be on the mend in a day or two, but no such luck. I am finally starting to recover. In the meantime, I have been crocheting and working on my December 2005 column. I am pleased to say, I got it in the mail today! That is such a blessing! It is always nice to finish up a design you have been working on, but extra nice when you weren't sure you were going to be able to get it out in time!
Now that my most important crochet work is done,
I will have to back up and re-group, and decide what is the next most important task!
But nevermind that for today~~for the remainder of today~~I can rest and play~!!
