I hope this finds you well. Me? Well I have been sick bad with a bad stomach virus going around. I haven't been that sick in I can't remember when. It was coming out multiple orifices (that's saying it nicely). At the same time even. :( It was gross. Sick I was.
Then yesterday I had 4 crowns done at one sitting. Talk about hurt. My mouth is very sore this morning. But I has new teefs! lol. I go in two weeks for the permanents. That makes the total number of crowns in a one month period 6. I had 2 done 3 weeks ago and got the permanents for those yesterday before starting on the other 4. Not cheap, and not fun.
Anyways, enough about me and on to the tada! I was commissioned by one of my friends' husband to make this for his wife for Mother's Day. Glad I finished it in time. It is huge! When I saw the pattern on FB and then shared it and then he saw it and wanted me to make it, I did not think it was as big as it is in real life. But it is what it is. Of course I had to add my own touches and put a liner in it, and then the handles are not as the pattern calls for. But all in all I like how it turned out. I just hope she does too. You can find the pattern for this at this location. You might see something else in this shop that you like. :o)
A couple of my owls turned out straight up, like they should. The rest did not and I could not figure out what I did wrong because I followed it each time for each one, specially after I saw the first crooked one done. I dunno. But I'd actually like to try to make one on a much smaller scale in the future. We'll see. :o)
It's actually big enough to carry a laptop computer in it. I told you, it's huge!
So I'm guessing the next set of pics will be the same way. I'm sorry............this sux.
Today my next project should be showing up at the recipient's door. He is a birthday present for a special guy in my life, my girlfriend's husband. Sometimes I get an idea in my head and I just go with it. I guess those are the best projects as far as I'm concerned.
This project has no pattern whatsoever, just what came out of my head through my hands. Meet Edward Big Hands!
Lastly, I have been commissioned also by an acquaintance to crochet some rocks. She bought the rocks, #3 thread and also 2 Bates hooks (which I didn't use because I prefer Boye hooks). I have finished 2 of 4.
May the ray of sunshine shining down on you fill you with the knowledge and peace you will need to navigate today.
Edited to add: I think I've figured out why the pics are doing the sideways thing. I googled it and what I found was that there is a setting on my phone for auto rotate. Blogger does not recognize the code for this. So I turned it off and hopefully that fixes it! I wish I still had the tote and Edward Big Hands so I could retake those pics but oh well. Yeehaw!
