Playing With Yarn

I make it a point to play with yarn every single day.
Sometimes projects in mind don't quite work out but evolve into something else, like baskets and bowls.
And a kitty with yarn makes for an evening of cheap entertainment.
Live and work but do not forget to play,
to have fun in life and really enjoy it.
Eileen Caddy

Have a great week!

I love the crocheted baskets and the Kitty looks to be having fun too. I don't have a crochet project going at this time, I will have to think about that. I hope to catch up on a few quilt blocks this week.

CUTE baskets! I'm sure Jingles is happy you crochet, too!!!

Cold here today but at least the sun is out. I leave in 10 days and am thinking I should be packing some clothes!

Hope your week is wonderful!

Is so agree with your quote today. We do need to play and have fun. Life sometimes gets so complicated that we forget to just Play.

You're crochet pieces are sure evolving into some wonderful works of art.

Wonderful warm and beautiful bowls and baskets that you have crocheted. Jingles is learning to crochet and enjoying yarn as much as you do. :o) Play is my 2012 word and I highly recommend it!

Dearest Tammy,

That looks like a bundle of happiness! Nice things that came off your needle and a content Jingles. She loves the yarns as much as you do.
My PC caused me a lot of headache otherwise I too would have preferred to play more.
Love to you,

Mariette

I came home yesterday to find a ball of yarn unravelled all around my bedroom... Hmm. I guess it must have fallen off the basket when I was putting it away the night before and my kitty decided to give it a go. She's 14 and she still loves playing around with yarn :)Yarn and kitties are an unbeatable association!
Love your baskets, Tammy :)
