WEEK 4 OF YEAR 10
Hello again. Once again, I am here to update y'all on my past week's progress in my crafting and a little in my personal life.
First off, I have another FO!
I started and completed the To The Point shawl this week. This will be going to the Prayer Shawl ministry at church. I just found out they have started mailing prayer packets out again. We had stopped for a while because of Covid 19.
My Sock Scrap Granny Stripe blanket is coming along too.
Can you see the little owl progress keeper? The part above it is what I have completed in the past 2 weeks. It is going to be my long term project this year. It is good TV watching crochet. Unfortunately, it is starting to get big enough where my lap gets a bit toasty with it laying on it. This is a great way to use up all those dribs and drabs of sock yarn I have hanging around.
Speaking of socks........................
I started another pair for the knit worthy husband. I have not decided which pattern I will be using yet. I am still leaning towards the Hermione Everyday Socks. Although, hubby really liked the 3X1 ribbed pattern I used on his last socks. I still another half inch to go on the cuff before a decision needs to be made.
That is all for my crafting this week. It was a slow week. My sister in law came back to our house on Tuesday. That meant I have spent a lot of time just enjoying her company. There was a trip to Costco, menu planning, grocery shopping, swimming, playing games, and working on perfecting SIL's crocheting skills. It has been so nice to have her here. I am going to miss her when she leaves this week.
When we were doing making the menus for the next 10 days, I let SIL pick out the recipes she would like me to make until she leaves. She chose some wonderful recipes and I am looking forward to making them. Tonight is chicken and white bean enchiladas. YUM! Last night was bacon wrapped jalapeno poppers and hot wings. It is fun to have someone else choose recipes for me to make.
My favorite job this week was doing my Grand Daughter's hair for her play performance. The Chandler Youth Theater is performing "Beauty and the Beast Jr". Needless to say, they are not doing live performances. Rather, they are video taping the performance and then putting it on YouTube for us to watch. Here she is in her 'Napkin Girl" costume.
She is part of the ensemble. Her other ensemble part was the 'silly girls'. She has really enjoyed doing this. Of course, you can not see the curls in her hair with this photo. Trust me, she has large ringlets going down her back. I am still getting used to her 'brunette' hair. She loves it but I miss her gorgeous naturally blonde hair. Oh, Well...................I'm just the Mimi. LOL
Her next play will be 'The Adams Family'. She is looking forward to the try outs. She asked me what role I thought she should try out for and I told her.....................Cousin It! I got a dirty look from her for that one LOL.
Hubby and I went to 7 AM Mass this morning. Afterwards, we went to our local carry out Mexican place and got breakfast burritos for all of us. SIL just finished making hotel reservations for her stay in Las Vegas. Now we are kicking back and watching "Solo:A Star Wars Story" on Disney +. I will be grabbing some handiwork after I post this. So.................
Until Next Time.......................Happy Crafting & Stay Well!!!!!!!!!
