On my hook

In my World of Crochet.

Finally a Vacation.

                                  

 I’m finally back from my trip to Colorado Springs to visit my parents and my Grandfather. I delivered my lapghan quilt to my Grandpa but forgot to take a picture with him and the quilt so I’m going to see if my Mom can send me one to put up here. We got a good snow storm on the 28th of Feb so my Daughter got to do some real sledding for the first time in her life and she had a ball. I went to the casino’s in Cripple Creek and came out 2 dollars ahead for the 2 days I went.

                                                     

Meanwhile back at home my hubby was tearing out our main bathroom for a remodel. This was the project we decided to do while I was away so that Kaila wouldn’t be in the way while he was demolishing the room and then tiling the walls around the shower (It also keeps him busy while we’re gone so he isn’t so lonely lol). We had some trouble with it when the tile we ordered didn’t come in as promised after 2 weeks and he had to pick out some other tile while I was gone but all in all it looks good so far. Now that we’ve gotten this far we’re reconsidering what to do with the vanity and the mirror and then we have to paint but after being in this house for almost 13 years we won’t have any more major renovations to do.

On the Crochet front.

While in Colorado I did manage to get some crocheting done. I made a crochet version of a nanduti which is a weaved spider-web lace that women in Paraguay make. This was used in the World Day of Prayer ceremony that my Mom was doing. It took me a few days to make and she got lots of comments on it. I didn’t get it blocked and stiffened but it worked out fine anyway.

You can read about the World Day of Prayer and see what the Nantuti looks like here. I made this with a doily pattern book and just did the centers on the doilies we liked till it reached the size we needed using #10 thread and a #1 steel hook.

 I also got another scarf, hat and fingerless mitts done and a shawl for the charity blitzes and a bunch of squares for my Trip Around the World quilt so now I need to get to work sewing them on lol. I also got my Mom started on a prayer shawl she wanted to make for the Prayer Shawl ministry for her Women’s church group.
