Two Tuesday

Two Things I'm Grateful For:

1. Better health. My cold's finally on its way out; I just have some sniffles left. Alex is still sneezy and sniffly, but at least she's happy.

2. Getting back to a normal schedule. On top of being sick for most of the month, we had a huge anniversary celebration at church that required a lot of prep work from everyone for several weeks. That's over, so I'm enjoying the small breather between now and the holidays.

Two Patterns I Think Are Neat:

Round blankets are so pretty. The bright colors in this sample are gorgeous, too. I'd love to host a crochet along with this pattern if anyone's interested??? If you prefer thread to yarn, you can follow the same pattern to create a doily instead.

2. Grumpy Cat
I LOVE Grumpy Cat! Michaels sells a stuffed animal Grumpy Cat, but they want $22! Crazy. Although I hate amigurumi, I may have to make this. A friend at church has offered to sew the pieces together if I crochet them. Tempting...

Thanks for reading.
Blessings :-)

  1. I'm glad you are feeling better. Both patterns look fun (love the grumpy cat!). :-) I've bit off more than I can chew right now with crocheting for Christmas. I hope others will join in with you though. Take care and I hope you are 100% soon. Heather

    1. Thanks, Linda. I'm the turtle crocheter, so, yes, we'd have awhile to work on it.

  5. I hadn't seen this pattern before. It looks pretty in either yarn or thread (I went and had a peek at everyone's on Ravelry.) Love that Grumpy Cat too! Hee-hee. I keep forgetting to answer your question about where we live. We live in Allen, NE of Dallas between Plano and McKinney.

    1. That's what I thought, too, Pammy Sue. That way if people want to do a CAL but don't want to use yarn, they can make a doily. Interested?? I'm thinking first of the year. And Grumpy Cat is awesome :-)
      Allen, huh? That's about an hour from us. Maybe one day we'll meet and crochet together in person :-)
