Greetings and thanks for stopping by. First I feel the need to explain my absence...burning pain in my wrist and shoulder, carpal tunnel syndrome, when I spend to much time on the computer...that discourages me from typing. Plus the ganglion cyst on my ring finger. I will need to address this with a surgeon some time soon. Especially since it limits my crafting time too!
A dear friend asked me to make a special card for a Philly fan that is celebrating her 85th birthday. When you live in certain Philadelphia neighborhoods you have to root for the team. That includes team shirts & hats, parties, outdoor decor, noisemakers...you name it...Philly Phanatics. The box card can feature all of that. I should have added a hot dog with the sheet music "Take me out to the ball game"
Up next the baby shower banner...I could have made it twice the size...it looks so small.
I've seen so many darling crocheted caps on line...that I was inspired to try one. I've crocheted 100's of doilies...tiny little angels and ornaments, and a couple dozen afghans, but I've never made a hat/cap or had to deal with gauge.
I was at the craft store and with my GD Rylee in mind, I looked for a pretty pink yarn that would be soft on her little bald head. Rylee will be 10 in April and she has alopecia. Anyway I didn't have the pattern but choose this brilliant pink yarn and tried my hand at a cap. The gauge is too big so I'll try again. I just bought a loom to make big fluffy flowers to top this off.
I'll post when I can...I've been a [sit-in] editor for our Woman's Club of Royersford, monthly newsletter. Which has aggravated the C P Syndrome. I'm amazed at how much I forgot in 4 years ...when I finally found a replacement. I'll be happy to give it back to Mary Anne on her return...and appreciate her all the more.
I've also been enrolled in creating a sign, a trophy...for The Best in Shoe", place cards and table numbers for this up coming event in May. I'll layer this on a larger black foam core rectangle and add the club information
to complete. Tune in nest time to see the completed projects.
Be well and thanks for visiting.~Carole
