Still hooking… (excuse the pun!!)

Lil Turtle Friend

Lil Turtle Friend

Made a couple more things with crochet this past weekend/week. First off was a lil bitty turtle for my boyfriend’s son. He loves turtles, and well I’m really trying to ease his transition to living with us and I thought this might help as a welcoming gesture.

I also threw together somthing for my DD. She went to a Girl Scout camp for the weekend and on friday before she left I realized I hadn’t made her that water-bottle holder that I’d so wanted to do. So, needless to say, I found a really quick pattern here: Ravelry done by JoAnne Leonard aka: HappyHooking I really love the way mine turned out. I did have to alter it a bit from her pattern, but that was because I had to use what I had on hand here at the office, which was a smaller hook, but it turned out lovely I think, and my DD just loved it!

Anyway, I’ve really been frustrated with the gifts I’ve been working on for my neice’s birthday this comming weekend. I’ve gotten a really sweet poncho finished up for her as well as a cute hat, and a sweet lil amigurumi bunny, but I’ve been hitting a wall when it comes to a purse/tote/bag to make for her. I think I’ve frogged 4 projects already. They just don’t seem to want to come together, or to look as cute as the pattern originals. *sigh* Hopefully the one I started last night will come through and turn out. I’ll post some photos after she’s received them. Don’t want to spoil the surprise. 🙂

for now,
Namaste,

I think its helping…

Just had a good day today, and boy is that been somthing I’ve not been able to say for so long. I had to sit down and think about it, and you know, today had all the little things in it that normally set me off on down the endless pit of depsair, but they didn’t do it today. Even when I was on the Celexia I still had quite a few of those days. But I think this switch to the Lexapro has actually worked. I’m amazed at how I’m feeling lately. Its been 2 months since we switched me and, I’m pretty sure that’s how long it takes to kick in, so there really isn’t much doubt in my mind.

I wanted to share a site with you all also. I’ve found it to be the best thing since facebook, where crafting is concerned anyway. It’s Ravelry Its a site kinda like facebook but for Knitters & Crocheters and other fiber arts. They have forums, groups, patterns, even a lovely database where you can keep track & share what your working on. I LOVE it! Definately a must visit if your into any of those crafts.

Anyhoo, I must finish up here at the office so I can head home soon. Just had a burst of need to share.

Namaste,
