Sneaky Guy

This little guy was sneaking around.

Honestly I've found myself feeling a little unmotivated to crochet.
I did pick up the crochet and completed a few more rows but nothing significant enough to share just yet. This happens from time to time but it sucks especially when I was making such nice progress.

I made two more hand bound journals since I shared the photos of the first one I made.
I've just been debating with myself: should I sell them? will anybody like them?
I'm still not sure :[  I have other thoughts on the brain too.
 I can't wait to get started with the 30 Day Art Journal Challenge!

Photo Dump





This one is actually from my Instagram. I'm aliciasplendeur there and I'm over on gramfeed as well.
Normally I would be giving you an update on the blanket but to be honest, I haven't worked on it.
Not this week or the week before.
I needed a little break.

It's Coming Along


My current blanket is coming along.
At first I wasn't too sure about the color combo but it's definitely grown on me.
You would think that because red it my fave color that I would have loved it right away but it's the color that I was most worried about. 
It's about 45 inches wide almost four feet and it says to work till it measures 60 inches.


Next time, I think I'll use a bigger hook to make it a little wider.
Better pictures next time :]

Sonny Angel needs a name

My little Sonny Angel wanted to say Hello!
I think we might start taking pictures of him more often.
He's been put away for too long.
Uhmm...should I name him?

Oh No I Ran Out of Yarn!

So this was last week's progress on the new blanket

I got a little further but had to stop. I ran out of the yarn I was working with.
Now I need to order the yarn I need and wait for it to get here.
So I've put this project aside until the yarn I need arrives.
I did start another blanket.
Different pattern and type of yarn
Here's a peek
I really like how it's turning out.
I'll share more pictures of my progress next week.

Oh-Oh Fail

Sunday was a nice day for me.
I spent it all by myself and avoided the phone as much as possible.
Than I thought it would be great to do some baking.
I grabbed a box of yellow cake, added cinnamon, walnuts and a handful of chocolate chips.
It was yummy!
But here's the fail
I thought it had cooled enough.
But obviously it needed more time.
I'll have to try and be patient next time. :)

I Feel Better...

Why you ask?  Oh, because I started a new crochet project.
A blanket all for me!
It's someting I've always wanted to do I just hadn't found the right pattern.
Here it is in the beginning stages.
Like my jammies background?
IT's a simple wave pattern and I'm using Lion Brand's Jiffy yarn.
So it will definitely be soft, warm and a winter blanket.
I've worked more rows since I took this picture.
Yay! I'm excitement!
