Life always has a way of showing you who is boss no matter what you want it is right there saying no way not right now!!
I was just recently diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. See there it is boom Life shows up to ruin your day. So what does that have to do with my crocheting?? A lot!!
I have been in a lot of pain and swelling the past 2 weeks. The past 2 days I have spent the day in the recliner. Finally today I got some relief although I did not crochet it was a good day. I am hoping to be feeling this good tomorrow also. I want to work on April’s afghan for her bed.

When life hands us lemons we make lemonade.  So I got to remember that when life steps in and messes with me.

So here is to having a big glass of lemonade and stitching to my heart’s content.

Happy Stitching…..

What the stitch???

If you are a beginner at crocheting some of the lingo can be confusing.  I have been crocheting for over 8 yrs now and I still run across some terms that leave me thinking huh?!

Here is a few helpful links:

Glossary

Learn to read patterns

Crochet and Knit abbreviations

For me personally making granny squares is the way I learn to read patterns. But then I discovered it just came naturally to me. Reading patterns does not always come easy to people. I have read many of comments saying that they can crochet whatever they want and then say they can not understand and read a pattern.

Having the knowledge of crochet and knit abbreviations is a plus when reading patterns. I have found the Lion Brand site to a very useful tool when learning new stitches and stuff. Plus the bonus of all of their free patterns.

Happy Monday and stitching till next time….

Crochet and Coffee……….

Posted on

Coffee fuels my crocheting and crocheting fuels my need for coffee.  For me they go hand in hand.  Hook in one hand and coffee mug in the other.  

I am seriously going to try to blog more about my crocheting and my love for it.  I miss blogging some days and FB is getting very tedious for me.  I think I am just bored with it.  There are so many great crochet blogs out there that I seem to over look due to me always being on FB.  

I am thinking maybe starting a theme for each day.  I usually(does not always happen) try to stay off of the internet on Sundays.   If you got any ideas on a theme comment with them.  I would love some feed back.   

Happy Stitching
