My Kinda Busy

A quiet morning and a sweet treat. A friend who visited the other evening brought along a vermicelli milk pudding. Zack and I decided it would be great for breakfast with a cup of tea. I am enjoying the rooibus strawberry and vanilla (goes great with chocolate too).

Last night I finished up a sugar spun doily, the pattern is compliments of Glor at Crochet Galore. She posts all her patterns in her sidebar so they are easy to find.

Empty matchboxes just waiting to be made over with bits of scrapbook paper, lace and stickers in Spring and Easter designs. These will be a perfect little gift with small chocolates inside.

4 bracelets that I previously crocheted were waiting for toggles and I made two more today.

I am also making progress on the granny stripe afghan.
A day busily crafting away is the perfect day to me. Hope you are getting crafty too! Best wishes and blessings, Tammy

Tammy, your crochet projects are inspiring - you are much more advanced than I am! I would love to make bracelets similar to the ones you made, they don't look too advanced. Would you mind telling me where you found the pattern? I Googled patterns but this style didn't show up. Thank you so much for any help!

Hi Tammy-love the bracelets and the pudding looks yummy! Don't have much of an appetite since this fall, so it is frustrating.
So many freak accidents, it's just crazy.
hugs,

I ADORE your crochet bracelets! LOVELY!

Isn't a day crafting better than anything? Well, not better than chocolate, but great nonetheless!!!!

Your storms sounded awful! Unless you've been in one of those, there isn't a frame of reference is there? Rain, yes. Dust? WOW. Glad you were ok!

Jammies day's are few and far between lately. Our company is gone and now (with the nice weather) I seem to be outside more than usual. Today is supposed to be 70 degrees, but the wind (don't say it too loud) should start ramping up about noon. So I'm going back into the garden to finish my job. It's not fun trying to control the plastic bag in gale force winds! Not to mention my HAIR!

Have a great day no matter what you are doing! And thanks for the visit!

Hugs,
Jan

Who would of thought that match boxes would have such a useful purpose...they are just so darn cute. Where the heck did you get all of those? I see that you're gonna keep yourself more than busy on your spring break.

A day spent with good food and lots of crafting time. It is almost like everything transforms to wonderful when there is a vacation from school for a week. I love that you are enjoying your days full of crafting fun. The bracelets looks great. You are getting more and more colorful with your beads you are using in them!! VERY NICE!!

Love,
Renee
