It was bitter cold today in West Michigan, so we didn’t venture out. I edited a podcast (I’ll be posting it tomorrow!) while testing out the “shell edged flower medallion” pattern published in the “201 Crochet Motif’s, Blocks, Projects and Ideas” book by Melody Griffiths. I borrowed this book from the library and really like it. I’m amazed by all the information packed into it. It’s like 10 books jammed into one. I hope Griffiths was well-compensated for efforts. This book is impressive.
While I was editing and crocheting, the girls were having a party with their dolls and stuffed animals on the vintage quilt I inherited from Grammy B. A bit tattered, this quilt is still beauty. If I remember correctly, a co-worker made if for her many years ago and charged her $20. I think it’s priceless.
Good news! I’m officially in the Sassy Apron Swap. It’s not like there was some tough application process or anything. I just can’t help being very enthused about being a part of this swap. And, in unrelated apron news, Jane posted a comment on yesterday’s blog post to let me know that is about to release the “Emmeline Apron” pattern for the fantastic design pictured above. LOVE IT!!! Now I’m just hoping mMegy skills are up to the task and I can be the first to discover a way craft in my sleep.
