After joining CrochetPartners, I find myself starting every new interesting pattern I see. Soooo, I have a whole bunch of projects going at one time - many with no specific recipient in mind. I decided that I needed to make myself a rule - only 3 WIPs (works in progress) at a time. I must finish them off to only 2 left unfinished before I can start another. To that end, here are some of my recent projects finished up.
Once more into the breach, dear Friends. We've started work on the kitchen make over. We had 2 companies out to measure for the new floor before Lynn decided we would do the bumpout into the garage for the refrigerator. He's going to do it himself : 0
So far we've taken out three cabinets and the soffit all around the room. Million year old stove goes soon. But first a hole in the wall behind it and a little cubbiehole built in for the new frig. Lynn found a guy he works at the temple with who is a cabinet maker. He thinks he can match our old cabinets (everyone else around here said that there was nothing like them made by retail cabinet makers now) We want to put the whole west wall in storage cabinets :)
Lynn's Dad's stained glass windows will fit in the kitchen window. We're looking into doing that.
Got a new pattern for footies and made a pair for me in camoflage so now you can't see my feet. Got a pattern from a magazine in Brazil and learned to crochet with symbols on a chart instead of text. I made this bolero/shrug for one of the granddaughters. I got Elena to model it.
Breakfast at the Olson's Ranch this year was lots of fun 300-400 other people. I went with Nathan and family. (Seen here with daughter Jillian) Main entertainment was the Catoctones, a group of about 20 men singing like a barbershop quartet.
