Wednesday Night Stitching Challenge Season 3, Week 2

Hi friends! Wednesday is finally here.  I’ve had a few hectic days since we last got together.  Life never seems to get any easier, it’s always one issue after another. You just need to learn to not sweat the small stuff or overthink things.  My escape is my quiet time for knitting or crochet.  I’ve been working on crochet hats since last week and was able to make 5 of them.   I started out making a beach hat for my g-grandson, then another, and one for his mom, then I made a couple of garden hats for myself.

Wednesday Night Stitching Challenge Season 3

Guess what day it is?  Wednesday … you know what that means?  It’s time for the Wednesday Night Stitching Challenge.  Welcome back to Season 3 of the WNSC.  My life hasn’t gotten any easier and I have even less time for myself.  No matter what is going on or how crazy things get, Wednesday is the one night I take for myself.  It’s the middle of the week; I can catch my breath, unwind, relax, listen to music or catch up on TV programs. Plus, I get to work on a project and hang out with all of you and discuss things we are stitching.  Continue reading “Wednesday Night Stitching Challenge Season 3”

Wednesday Night Stitching Challenge Week 10

Yes it’s Wednesday and I’m ready to chill with my yarn and crochet hook! It’s been chilly, dreary and raining for over a week. It’s a great time to sit and stitch! Tonight I’m making something for myself and maybe will make a few extra for stocking stuffers. I just love the Cottage Crochet Slippers. They are easy to work up and so many colors to choose from. I’ll just go through my stash to see what colorful slippers I can create. Continue reading “Wednesday Night Stitching Challenge Week 10”

Wednesday Night Stitching Challenge Week 8

This is Thanksgiving week and I’m very thankful for my family and friends.  They have all been part of making this a wonderful year. People are traveling, visiting with family and busy, busy, busy.  Everyone is coming to our house for dinner this year so today is one of those *multi-task* days …. Several things happening in the kitchen, cleaning the house (???), laundry, another run to the grocery store, and fitting in work along the way. Oh, I forgot to mention the grandkids have begun showing up to spend the rest of the week here. Whew …. I am definitely looking forward to tonight!
