Snowflakes and crochet!

This is what we woke up to once again this morning, my goodness will it ever end. We had intended to go for another long walk today but Mother Nature curtailed those plans so instead we stayed home and did other stuff. Hubby was doing some work on the computer and I buckled down and got serious about conquering crochet. After much ripping apart and a few choice words I think I finally have the hang of it now. I made this little pot in about 3 hours or so and I was delightfully pleased at how it turned out. Since I was doing pretty good I decided to make this little pouch, I love the pale pink shade and it wasn't as hard as I thought it would be. The trick is to have the house completely silent so you don't lose count, as I did so many times. This afternoon was one of those times, hubby was engrossed in his work, the cat was asleep so it was just perfect.

I was given another lovely award again today, it was from Sue who blogs at The Portuguese Water Blog thank you Sue it is much appreciated and I will get to it real soon. Sue's blog is one of my favorites and I highly recommend a visit, I love seeing all the things that her wonderful doggies get up to. If you are having a down day it is a great place to grab a smile.

Happy Monday everybody!

Thank you for the kind words. I love your spring like crafting, even if Mother Nature isn't cooperating.

Wow, nice work! I love the pouch. I struggle every time with attaching a zipper to crochet. Looks like you had no trouble.

Nice weather too, we were house hunting in Seattle this weekend and enjoyed the same snow, rain etc. :)

Great job on the crochet projects! You have done so much better than I at learning that craft. I started a HUGE granny square afghan a couple of years ago, as that was about all I could conquer...but it still lies undone. Maybe someday in the DISTANT future when my house is completely quiet! :)

When is this snow going to end??

At least it's good for staying in, being warm, and getting some projects worked on. : )
