Making Lemonade...

I am making lemonade..you know when life throws you lemons..you make lemonade.  Well that's just what I am doing.   I am now have a grandson living with me...a 15 year old teenage boy...I am doing the best I can with a bad situation. I would go into more detail, but I don't want to hurt anyone, especially people I care about..so I won't.   I am blogging on a fluke..I haven't been here in a very long time...and my blog just popped up..so here I am.  For those of you who follow me..you know eventually I will go off on a rant and spill everything that I bottle up...so check back often.  I guess I can use this as therapy?  Probably not a good idea..the bat shit crazy is liable to come out..and then the people with straight jackets will wrap me all up nice and neat...

On the crochet front....I don't hook as often as I used to.  I do enjoy it.  But there doesn't seem to be much time anymore.  I try to grab at least an hour or two a day, sometimes more.  The hook soothes me. The hook relieves the stresses of the day.  I think everybody needs a safe place to go and my hook and thread is a safe place.  I can think, I can analyze, I can reflect, but most importantly I can find some peace.   I can say shut up..I am counting..and no one gets offended...try saying shut up to someone when you don't have a hook in your hand...it just sounds mean..

I am trying to get my store restocked with thread..there are some colors that seem impossible to get..dusty rose, lilac, maroon, and a few colors of blue...I have a runner that I should have had finished months ago..but all kinds of crap started happening in my life..and I can't even find the pattern...argh...

You can see I am trying to get my shop stocked back up.....I have another order of DMC Cebelia I am waiting on...Hopefully those colors I can't seem to get will be in the box.  Who Knows...

I have a sink full of dishes, clothes to wash, and floors to sweep..so I guess I better get busy...so when life gives you lemons..make lemonade...

Hi, Vikki! I'm so happy to see you back! I couldn't wait for that to happen. I would have asked you how you were doing but I wasn't sure it was the right time for you. If you are talking about my pattern, I can find it for you.

Hi Monica yes it is your pattern I can't find... Also have been ordering and reordering the thread... Hopefully within the next week or two .. That's what they are telling me anyway

Just look for the Long Pineapple Shell Scarf Crochet Pattern Design 640 from the Todays Treasure Pattern Shop. It was in PDF and you got it on April 24 or 25.
