Some blathering...

Is there such a word?..... Here are some coasters I recently finished. I broke down and bought some variegated thread before my order came, Mimi. ;) I made four of them. I should have taken a better picture, but oh well... This is the only picture I have, though, and they are gone. I sent them to someone in the mail. I used the shells coaster pattern. I am moving on to more challenging projects. I have wanted the Crochet Shrugs pattern for a long time, but have been fighting it. Well last night I went and ordered one from Annie's Attic. I looked at WalMart (they don't have anything... I didn't think they would have it, but since we were there I thought I'd look.) And we were right by Hobby Lobby last night, but it was late and as we drove past it I noticed they looked closed anyway. (It was 8:41 pm. They must close early.) Anyway, it should be coming in the mail soon. And meanwhile I am going to work on finishing the toys for the toy swap. I am getting close to being done on the Hello Kitty toy. It isn't *as* hard as I thought it would be. It's just not a 'real' pattern. And was confusing me. Anyway. I will feel like I have accomplished something when it is done. Then I will only have two toys left. Well that's about all for today. I think I might go over to the new place today, and hang the new shower curtain. And take a few things over.

That's a nice coaster pattern,Tina, and the variegated thread is also nice :) Havent you used the size 8 threads you got from me yet?

Not yet, Mimi. Well I guess I did use some, for a bookmark for someone. The purple variegated. I'm trying to finish up all my other projects (there's too many, and yes they are all useless.. like the doily that is too big...) :) I just have to try things....
