Did you know that when I started my adult life in the southernmost part of the United States, I swore I would never say y'all?
It didn't last long, and now I am a proud, card-carrying member, of the Y'all speakers.
Sometimes I even go for the glory with an all y'all, but those are special, and must not be used too often.
But that's not what I came here to say...
What I really wanted to say, y'all, was that I am going to take a bloggers break for the rest of this week.
I'm workin' mighty-hard, (ok, the y'all's have got me typin' with a Texas twang) this week on a few projects.
The first is trying to figure out how to make a slightly larger, sweet four-year-old, version of the crochet hat I shared with you on Friday. I made one yesterday and it turned out too big.
The Girl appreciated my learning curve as she ran out for drama camp this morning...in her new flowered crochet cloche. So today I have been working on down sizing a bit.
The other project I've got going is Christmas stuff...yes, Christmas.
For several years I have made gifts for my nieces and nephews. As they get older and more sophisticated, its getting a little bit more challenging in some ways, and easier in others. But I am almost certain I have narrowed down the gifts for my nieces. Here is a sneak peek at the might-be-the-christmas-gifts-for-nieces-work-in-progress...
I think I would do each hat in the girls fave color and do a mix of flowers.
Not sure what I'm doing for the nephews yet, but I am certain I am going to make this for The Boy because he has been asking me to let him have a mohawk for about a year. I'm going to love laughing on Christmas morning when I tell him he can finally have his mohawk.
I will admit to you that I am a bit obsessed focused on these projects at the moment. And I have a tendency to forget all other things when in this mode....eating? cleaning? working out? what are those things?
I'm in the crochet zone.
Ah, the life of a capricious crafter.
Have a great week, y'all.
