Hobby Insanity

Here it is the 18th of May. I haven't posted since the 15th of April. The time has flown by so fast. So here is another time to post. A lot has happened in a month.

My aunt left. She did really well. She really enjoyed the city for what we showed her. We took her shopping, took her to lunch, she stayed for my daughter's confirmation and we celebrated her birthday here. She said she had never had birthday cake to celebrate her birthday for years. So I was glad I was able to do that for her.

As for the heading of this post, I have grown an interest into knitting and crochet. Crochet is something I tried in the past. Knitting is new! I already have the things to crochet. But, I did spend like 10 bucks on knitting needles and yarn. I found a buy at Walmart and bought a knitting book. I haven't really learned much. I asked a lady to show me how. But, I don't think I am one of her favorite people because she never called me to set up a time to knit together.

I am cross stitching. I am working on a thank you gift for the other room mom. Shhhh. It is a surprise for her. I have to finish it! I only have like another week to do it! This week flew by. After that I want to do a Precious Moments project. This lady, Alisha, I met online sent me 4 PM books with nothing but patterns in them. So I intend to stitch one up here soon. Just have to choose a pattern.

I could go on but I think this is enough. A few last minute things!

1. I want to stitch the thank you project for Stephanie and then do a PM piece. So those are immediate stitching goals. Oh, I never finished Winnie. I ran out of floss and Janlynn says they may not have the color. The kit is over 10 years old so what do I expect.

2. I still love the Rockies in spite of the fact that they aren't winning! They are a great team. But, for some reason, like PITCHING, they are losing.

3. School ends soon. I am volunteering to pay off the tuition for a non profit organization. Not work as in a real job!!!! Just volunteering. I work the major sports events. Hard work involved there.

4. Summer weather has arrived in town.

I will post soon with updates on everything.

Sounds like you have some impressive stitching goals and a new hobby to try. Good luck knitting. I didn't have the patience for it but I'm always fascinated watching people knit.
I hope things get better for you and your family.
