YEAR 8 WEEK 10
Another Sunday and time for me to do an update as to what kind of craftiness I have been up to this week.
As for knitting/crocheting.............it has been nonexistent. Hopefully I will be able to get back to it next week after I see the Doctor and get an injection to help get things working again. This does not mean I have not been doing anything. Oh, not at all. Let's see what has happened this week.
I completed another 750 piece puzzle. It is called Classic Gas. What a joy this was to put together. It only took 2 days to complete. Puzzles with words seem to go so much quicker. Another one will probably be started this week.
I dusted off my sewing machine this week too.
I finally made myself a tea bag holder. I have done others but, they all have been given out as gifts.
It holds 6 tea bags. It is getting that time of year when a nice hot cup of tea is so soothing. Our mornings are dipping below 80F................finally. I have even been having a nice cuppa in the evenings before bed. I am not a big iced tea drinker..........only hot tea. Hubby is the iced tea drinker. The fact I can not drink caffeine, I always carry my own tea with me. Not many restaurants serve decaf tea. Many of them think the fruit flavored tea is decaf.......NOT! I have no desire to take a trip to the ER because of an allergic reaction.
I have a project I am going to work on this week also.
A color your own mug. How fun does this look. I found it at Bed Bath and Beyond today on a clearance table! It comes with it's own markers. Once it is all colored the way you want it, you bake it in the oven to set the colors. Another lovely tea mug for me! I got another one to give to my daughter as she is also a big tea drinker in the winter.
I was going to sew some project bags this week but didn't. They are all cut out and ready to be sewn, I just ran out of time.
While in Texas, I did something I had wanted to do for several months:
I got a tattoo. This is in memory of my mom. She loved bunnys and butterflies. I love the fact the bunny is part of a heart. Now, every time I see my ankle, I think of her. It is my first and last tattoo. I placed it on the inside of my ankle and it is no bigger than a quarter. That way, it is not very noticeable to the general. My son was kind enough to go with me when I got it. I figured he and my daughter in law would know of a reputable tattoo parlor since they both have several tattoos. (Gotta love sailors!) I have never seen a place so clean. Even their public restroom was spotless!
I finished a book this week too.
This was an enjoyable book. I can not remember which of the bloggers I follow suggested it but..................I am glad they did. It is quite different from anything I had read before. Not a hard book to read and the chapters were short enough, it was easy to read at night and put down when sleep overtook me.
That should do it for today.
Until next time...................Happy Crafting!!!!!
