Lots of goodies

I did not plan to go shopping today but I did end up with a few goodies. I stopped by the scrapbook store and bought some supplies (even though I probably did not need any). I have been on a roll with scrapping some pages and I hope to continue. I will post some to my blog soon.

B and I went out to eat at Chili's (Yay for gift cards)! Afterwards we stopped by Barnes & Noble (of course it is the other book store I have a gift card to) and looked around. I bought myself the Knit It! Magazine and Stitch 'n Bitch. I was going to buy the 2nd one (Stitch 'n Bitch Nation) but will save it for my gift card. I so already love this book and I can honestly say I have already learned some things on what not to do.

I joined a crochet Thread CAL (my first CAL). Did I mention I was doing this? This is my first time to using thread and a tiny hook. I started tonight and so far, I think I am doing okay. I do have to get used to the thread twisting

For my first project, I chose to make a doily – Bounty. I think it is very pretty and I am hoping it is not too much for my first thread project. I have only worked on it for a short time (last half of Desperate Housewives) but I have completed 3 rounds. At first, I thought I might have been doing the third round wrong but it seems to look okay. This is what I have completed so far (I will have to use a dark background next time).

I have a few finished projects I need to post and the pictures are already uploaded so maybe I will do so tomorrow.

Well the weekend is over and I have to go back to work tomorrow. I have not been in to work since Wednesday as I was not feeling well on Thursday & Friday. I hope it is not too busy. I better head to bed.


  1. I think you are doing a wonderful job on the doily. Just wait, the sense of accomplishment when it is finished will make you burst!!! Keep it up :)

  2. WOW! this is your first thread project?

    you've already made a lovely start! the beginning rounds came out beautifully!

    Thank you for stoppy by my site (a lady's crochet), by the way. Look forward to seeing your finished projects as well!
