Yesterday, I went to one of my favorite stores... no, it wasn't Lowes this time! I went to Michaels, an awesome craft store. My neighbor and I were having some cross stitch pieces that I had stitched framed. They were having a 60% off on custom framing AND $20 off on top of the 60%!!! That's an unbelievable sale for custom framing! I can't wait to show my finished piece to you when I get it back in a couple of weeks! All you bird lovers will LOVE it! It's the one piece that I have stitched recently that I am NOT selling on my Etsy store... sorry! I just couldn't part with it!
Anyhoo, while at Michaels, I picked up a crochet book on 2 Hour Dishcloths for beginners. I recognized several of the stitches they mentioned so I thought I'd give it a go.
This afternoon I started crocheting my first dishcloth. Mind you, it's been a LONG time since I've held a crochet hook and even then, I'm still a beginner.
After reading and re-reading the instructions several times and trying to make some sense out of it AND starting over several times I think I've finally figured it out. During this whole time, I listened to Precious snoring as she was sleeping on the couch by me! So cute!
2 hours - HA! It's already been 3 hours and I'm only on row 6! I have 6 more rows to do which should go quicker since they're just repeated. Key word here being should! THEN, I have to figure out the border... oh joy!
I'm hoping to get it done by tomorrow... we'll see! (I guess I'd better quit blogging and get back at it if I want to get it done!)
2 hours - not THIS beginner *smile*!
I hope you're having a great weekend!
Till next time,
