potholders and scrubbies oh my!





















Wow it has been awhile since I blogged..I have a reason for that. I have been told that I need to get out more often, get around people, do something, it is not normal what I do. OK..goodness knows I want to be normal..So I decided to put my hook and thread down for a week so I could be "normal." I went groc. shopping, went birthday shopping, got with the grandkids, cleaned my house, did the laundry, cooked some meals (all of these things I would have done anyway). I watched TV (big waste of time), played DS..killed some zombies, spelled some words. I did not touch a hook or even a tiny piece of thread. NOW looking back on the week..there is not a thing to show for it..is that normal? I feel like I lost a week. I have made this conclusion..if sitting in front of the television..and becoming like those zombies in my game is normal..I don't want to be normal. I like being home, I am content with my life, and I am ok with being abnormal then. With that being said..I am going to go to my corner, sit in my chair, grab a hook, and move some thread. There will be something to show, other than this blog, for the week. I am not sure I ever want to be normal again.

Thought I would show some pics of potholders and scrubbies created when I wasn't being normal. That is if blogger lets me post them..if not another day then.

I think your version of normal is totally okay. And I love all of the items that you featured in the post today! Great detailed work.

I'm with you that's for sure..being "normal" highly overated...I like to see what I've produced something tangible...these are beautiful PH....loverlies.....Vikki, email me again with your addy..I had the envelope all addressed went to PO, and when to automatic thing...1st time..it spit out a label/stamp thingy and I covered up the address, otherwise your magazine would be on the way to you today...thanks. Maybe I should have stood in line...

Hi Vikki! I guess I am not normal either. I don't get the TV thing. People talk about shows and I don't watch them so I am clueless. It isn't that I never watch TV, I do watch some. I love a good movie now and then. Love your pretty potholders and scrubbies. You do such beautiful work. I am working on my PH for Faith's PH swap and still have my afghan squares out. Those have been put aside until I get my PH swap finished.

If watching TV all day makes one normal, I will just be abnormal~~
Have a wonderful day!!

Your PH's are beautiful! I think they always brighten up the kitchen. Stop trying to be someone else's nornal...you already are normal! I prefer to spend time my time making stuff, too....as I get older, I have less and less interest in being out and about, and more and more interest in staying home and doing the things I enjoy. Besides, you have to keep moving that hook so we can see all the beautiful things you make. :)

Wishing you a lovely day.

Great work--as always!

Normal for me is crocheting everyday. My hand is giving me a bit of a problem so I've been taking a break. It seems weird, to not have a hook in my hand when I'm sitting watching a movie or tv.

Like your potholds and scrubbies!

I watch a lot of movies and crochet too...I just think there are not enough hours in the day for my crafting!! Love the pink doilie... :)

Misty said...

Ohh, I love the daisy-style potholders in the third photo! They are beautiful! Are they made with a worsted weight yarn?

I don't know that "normal" is all that fun, anyway. I think you should just do the things that give you joy, regardless of what others think you should do.
