YOP Week #37

I'm not getting much crafting done with spring planting and gardening.  Although, to be honest, I am behind in that area too.  I keep trying to come up with a "handwork routine" and I might have one finally.  I think 3 projects at a time are all I can handle and that will be whatever I chose but most probably a knitting project, a crochet project, and a miscellaneous project.  I'll see how it goes.
This week I did not get the Prim Village cross stitch border finished but I got so bored with it I started on one of the houses.   I don't care for their schedule on it so I'll do my own.
Remember this one?  I was at Walmart this past week and was able to get more of that yarn...not sure if it's the same dye lot but what the heck.  This is crochet.
 I was reading a friends' blog and she had started a shawl/scarf that looked very enjoyable and I loved the style of it.  I made a very similar scarf for my firstborn when he was a baby but it was crocheted and of course, it was much smaller.  This is a free pattern on Ravelry.  It is The Miss Marple shawl/scarf   Here's the link
Here's mine so far.............
That's all the "craftiness" this week.  It's been rainy here which makes me sleepy and not too energetic but I'm pushing through it!  Although, I did take a 2-hour nap yesterday....I couldn't stay awake! LOL!
This week I will be making the American St. Patrick's Day dinner of corned beef and cabbage and so much more. I'm watching an addicting series on Acorn called A Place to Call Home.  I'm reading Joy of Life (french) and Cherry Cheesecake Murder by Joane Fluke...both good!  I hope you all stay healthy and away from the coronavirus!
Here are your "tidbits" for today...................

I thought this was really interesting!
Here's the link
If you have an Instant Pot this is so cool!  Here's the recipe  It's never too early to start thinking about Christmas....just sayin'.
There are no instructions but really you could crochet any squares and attach to some fabric and VOILA!
Words of wisdom....................
Happy Trails!!!

  1. I am so glad to hear I am not the only one that gets 'lazy' on rainy days. Your Miss Marple shawl/scarf looks nice and even. I have a few skeins of the Home Town yarn. I love the feel of it too. I think mine will be made into a shawl. It is so soft and cozy feeling. I love the chuckle for today. That will be my motto for the day! Stay well, Sam.

    3. I have been married with my wife for 6 years and recently she broke up with me and it hurt me deeply when she told me to leave her alone and that she does not love me anymore when i was always faithful and honest to her. I tried all the ways to get her back buying her what she wants like i always did and she still left me heart broken and she even has a new boyfriend which destroyed me even more until a friend of mine from high school directed me to Dr Emu. This man changed my life completely. I followed everything he told me to do and my wife came back. I was stunned everything happened exactly like he told me. I had faith in everything he told me and everything was true. You can contact him via email: Emutemple@gmail.com He will help you in anything you need and quick to answer once you contact him through his whats-app number: +2347012841542

    1. I know but I remember thinking when I was working how much I would get done and the things I would do when I retired.....well, no one told me there would be illness, expensive meds and I would be so tired! LOL! Plus, the money would go for meds. Oh well, at least I'm still here and not suffering like some...yet anyway. I am blessed!

  4. Love the can't reach it don't need it quote. This is how I feel with my sore shoulder, anything out of reach, well, stays out of reach. I think 2 hour naps are just the ticket some days. I never make a special saint patrick's day meal - but I do try to remember to wear green. Good for you for not continuing with something that wasn't making you happy. Do your own thing! Yup, that's the ticket!!

  6. so much craftiness though! Your post made me feel all cozy and want to curl up with a book AND some knitting. I've found myself with about 2 weeks off, more likely 4 weeks, and I'm planning on using that time to craft. And get caught up on the to-do list! I haven't even ordered seeds yet! Happy crafting. I look forward to checking back in to see what all you are doing.

  7. thank you so much, Kristen! Are you off because of COVID-19? and oh yes, the never-ending to do list! I have been writing daily to-do lists since I learned to write and at 71 years old I have yet to finish one in one day! But I still love writing down all those hope and dreams and 'action items'! Enjoy your time off!

    1. Yes, everything is shut down around here because of the virus. I love having a to-do list, and like you, I don't remember ever being able to cross everything off the list after one day. But I just keep making them because it helps me feel organized and I use it as a 'brain dump' a lot of the time. My mind feels clearer when I dump some stuff out of it!
