My goals for YOP for this week were to finish the color tipped scarf, the Maybelle blanket and the dishcloth. I also wanted to cast on the socks and do some cross stitch. Well, the best laid plans.....
1) I did finish the washcloth.........
3) I did make another Victorian Square which isn't even on my list.......
this stash busting CAL which is by Annie's Design Crochet in Ireland. Of course, I had to participate as I have Irish blood running through my veins.....I heard about it last week from Just Magic Maria in our YOP group. I hope she's going to do it too. I'll be using my Stylecraft DK. It starts tomorrow! Anyone else want to join in? It's crochet.
So the goals for this coming week for YOP are 1) finish Halloween washcloth, 2) finish cuff on sock 3) get yarns ordered for Maybelle and maybe some for the CALs too 4) finish color tipped scarf 5) sew more strips for rag rug and 6) start the Blaithin CAL. I did work on Witchy Wednesday cross stitch but that was about all I did in cross stitch.
As for news around the home front....it's been a rough end of the week. My SIL is in the hospital in intensive care with pneumonia and a possible blood clot on/in his lung. Also, my daughter had to run Grayson to the emergency care center with a bad ear infection and pink eye. That poor girl! I wish I was there to help her out. I worry about her health too with all that's gone on. Also, I called my other grandson, Uriah, and he's having a hard time adjusting to his uncle's death...they were very close. Amy said she had a hard time being at the hospital last night as it brought everything back from when we were with Jim at the hospital. Rough weekend!
I did get some gray paint on those garage steps though and this time it stuck! They will need another coat but they look good. I need to mow but I refuse to go out when it is so hot! I water but that's about it! I'll wait until it cools off next week.
Please stop by and see all the other fantastic projects that other YOP'ers are working on.
