Happy!

I have had a smile on my face for the last couple of days. Crochet seems to be doing that to me. My little project that I was working on turned out just perfect thanks to a wonderful pattern from this lovely blog. It's not wonky, befuddled or messed up! I love my crochet bag. Thank you Lucy!

I was asked the other day what made me decide to start a blog. To be honest I haven't a clue! Normally I am a very quiet private person who still blushes embarrassingly when someone gives me a compliment. Silly I know. I am one of those people that likes to quietly sit in the background working away on one little project or other just doing it for my absolute pleasure.

Last summer I took a couple of months away from blogging that I thought were going to be fun. I also thought that I would get a lot more accomplished not having to find things to blog about. Not so! After about a week or two I found myself constantly seeing and doing things that would be "just perfect to blog about". So I think my little blog and I are joined at the hip. Even if no one stops by I think I would still blog just for me. I guess my little blog is a diary of my daily life. Maybe not exciting to a lot of people but just fine for me thank you very much. I can honestly say that I wouldn't change a thing. I am having a grand old time!

What a nice big tote bag. I love it and of course, the color is perfect. Sometimes I really wish I'd listened better when my Mom tried to teach me to crochet.

Terri Fisher said...

Wow...it turned out great! You need to put some of those on Etsy, too! Love it!

Dianne said...

Lovely bag. I love the style and the color.

I feel the same way about blogging - funny isn't it. I also really love the friends I have made because of it. g

I agree with you Kathy. I still love to blog after all these years. How many people read my blog, I don't know? First and foremost it's for me, as an online diary. I love that bag by the way! x

Your bag looks gorgeous - especially with all your wool sitting in it! Glad to hear you are not taking a blog break this year - I always love to stop by to see what you are up to!

Good to hear that you're joined at the hip! Keep blogging. We love hearing from you. Love the bag too!

Well, I'm glad you decided to blog because I wouldn't have known you and you are one of my inspirations! I love this purple bag! It is very tasteful (sometimes crochet can be too much of a throwback to the 70's!)... I would carry it everywhere I wanted to tell you that I saw Layla featured on an etsy email a few days ago with one of her bath bombs! I was excited for her!! :)
