Wow! Since I am only writing once a week, I have a lot to say! I don’t know about you, but this Summer has been so busy, I have to fight for my crochet time. Luckily, I have a family who has accepted my obsession, and usually doesn’t mind me asking them to repeat themselves because I am too busy counting stitches.
First, on the agenda, is Linda from Kelleysdiy giveaway. She has collected over 60 donations to giveaway as a thank you to her readers for her first anniversary. I am donating a pair of thread crochet earrings. They are light and very detailed, and were a little hard to give away, but I’m sure they will go to a good home.

Second, we were up North for a long weekend, so during the car rides, I managed to start another crochet purse for a commission. It is the same purse I have been wearing all Summer, and I just love it. My hairstylist saw me with it and ordered two! Wear your creations, it gets you orders! Here is what I have done so far.
Third, I brought my new freeform project up North, but didn’t have a chance to work on it. I am loving the colors, and just how relaxing it is. I do like to have my steamer around while I put the scrumbles together, so it kind of limits me to working at home. Here is what I’ve accomplished from last week.
I also got a request to make a purse for my mom for her birthday. Micheals is having a sale on ColorWheel Yarn, it’s only a $1 per skein, perfect for a freeform project. I bought many skeins because I am not sure about colors, so I need your opinion.
My mom is a fan of red, so I wanted to include at least a shade of red in the mix. Which color scheme do you like better?
Last, I missed the Fantastic Bake Along, hosted by Tracy over at It’s a T-Sweets day! This month’s BAL was a quiche, and I am craving one now, so will make one soon. But if you want to get caught up with the other bakers, here are the links!
