Well, I tried this once before a few months ago but times being what they are right now, it couldn't be a better time to leave Facebook for a while. I have been having some very sever emotional issues with all the political BS and the world being what it is these days has made me have some meltdowns.
I am really looking for the positive side of my life and get away from all the negativity that is everywhere you turn these days. I am a pretty even keel type person and I think that it is time to do what makes me happy and what makes me happy is making and creating things for family and friends and making them smile and laugh and cry with happy tears of joy. So I hope you will take a break and come by and visit me here. I may not have a lot to share everyday but I will be posting happiness most of the time. That includes family, friends, furry family members as well as feathered family members and what everyone is up to.
Coffee is served at 5 am every morning. See you all here.
I am starting this off with my first open bloom of my Asian Lilies and the completion of my Niece, Sheri Starnes Bohemian Shawl.

I sent it to Sheri and she has now received it and it looks awesome on her. I couldn't be more proud of myself. hahaha. Looks just like the pattern

This was the pattern.

Welcome back to blogging. I may follow your lead as well. Facebook may turn out to be a once a week visit for me. I don't want to leave completely, but I certainly could find blogging more useful and fun.

Yea, I think that once a week would be perfect. I just want to be away from it. I'll be here and I'm hoping that others will follow our lead.

I love your shawl so much Jan, did you use #10 crochet thread?

Jan said...

No I used Deborah Norville Premier Yarns. It is Serenity Garden and the color is Gems. It is really soft but hangs very nicely. I think it would work with a #10 though. I have the pattern but its a toughie. Let me know if you want to try it.

I have used her yarn, it is very nice, thicker than crochet cotton. I may take you up on that sometime, thank you. I love a challenge.

It is a challenge to be sure but having done it a couple of times now I can probably help you if you get stuck. I like it as I can sit and watch TV in the evening with my SH (sweet hubby) and still do something. I hate wasting time. hahah. It makes my SH crazy.
