Great day with my Daughter, Niece and my daughter's little sister, my daughter volunteer's with Big Brother's/Big Sister's. We went to Urban Ministries Of Wake County's Tour D' Coop, you donate money or can goods to Urban Ministries get a map of people in the city limits of Raleigh & Cary neighborhoods that keep chicken's. We had a great time saw some awesome coops and neighborhoods and beautiful gardens. I love Raleigh and I wish I could live there, I could not drive in Raleigh. The traffic is horrible.

I found the pattern I kept thinking about it and it was driving me crazy. I had to find the patten. Then I remembered the fact that I crocheted this afghan for a friend of mine when she was having a baby. So I thought about it and I went back through my post to see if I posted a blog about the afghan. Sure enough I had ! It is the Progressive Pattern Stitch Afghan Designed by Julie A. Bolduc, you can find the pattern at http://www.jpfun.com/ . Now all I need to do is figure out where I am in this pattern and how to get started. I might need to start a new afghan to figure out what I need to do. It is a fun pattern and once you get the hang of it an easy pattern. Sometime this weekend I plan to cast on a Basketweave Pattern I found this pattern on the label of a skein of yarn. I brought the yarn at Benjiman Franklins neat Concord a few years ago. It is Premier Yarns Baby Collection .

I have been spending a lot of my time crocheting since March. So far I have finished two Beth's Little Star Afghan by Beth Parsons. I am almost finished with a 3rd. I have the yarn ready for a ripple I have a pattern Zowie's Zigzags Afghan by Liz Lafferty , French Vanilla Patterns. I will try to remember to post a picture of the yarn for the ripple this week. I have a mystery UFO. I started the pattern I think 5 years ago put it down forgot about it and rediscovered it this weekend. I did not put the pattern with the UFO and now I can't find the pattern and I don't remember the website to find the pattern. I do remember that it is a corner to corner pattern, but not diagonal pattern because this pattern has a chain 3, single crochet along with the 3 double crochet shell. Any help to find the pattern will make me a very happy person. Posting a picture of the afghan.

Finally finished the baby afghan that I've been working on for month's. Gave it to my friend at work. She really like it and said she could still use it for the baby. Moved on to a new crochet project. Almost finish reading If Hooks Could Kill, by Betty Hechtman. Happy crafting. I will need to wait a few more weeks before I can start the garden. I can plant some potato's. Plan to get a few starters this weekend.

Already it is Sunday night and my nice long weekend is almost over. It started on Friday with a trip to Costco and then home to get ready for salt fish and grits. My Sister and her family came over and my Aunt and her family. Had a great time and the salt fish was great. Spent time cleaning my bedroom and closet. Gave away some yarn that I will never use and a lot of books took them to Goodwill, I hope they did not throw the yarn away, I gave away some pretty good books. Then worked on and finished my crochet project posting a picture tonight. Also made a great attempt to finish the baby afghan for my friend a work. Church today and then to my Aunt's house for dinner. Tonight is Game of thrones HBO.

Well spring has sprung in North Carolina but it is really hard to tell. I feel like we are still in the middle of winter. March as always is very windy but the cold makes things seem a lot worse. Tomorrow is hum day and then only one day left and we will have a nice long weekend. Our agency will be closed on Good Friday and I am ready for the day off and a long weekend. We have our salt fish in the freezer. I did a little fur grand dog sitting last week and this weekend. I love the dogs but two Chihuahua's is like having an army. Finally in honor of National Crochet Month I started an afghan. Still trying to finish the knit baby afghan for my friend at work. I need to put on a big push this weekend because she will return to work on Monday and I need to have the afghan done. Since I have a long weekend I am sure if I push myself it will get done. Game of Thrones starts this Sunday on HBO love it!!! . Happy National Crochet Month! .

I have not blogged in a long time. It seems winter even a mild one leaves me feeling lost, and depressed. I have not worked on much still trying to knit a baby blanket for a friend at work, and still trying to finish reading 3 books. It is not because I don't like the books I really do. They are from some of my favorite author's. Barbara Bretton's Spells & Stitches, Sally Goldenbaum's A Fatal Fleece, and Betty Hechtman's If Hooks Could Kill. I did manage to listen to a great book on my kindle and I loved it! . Last Wool and Testament: A Haunted Yarn Shop Mystery, by Molly Macrae. It is the first book I have by this author. February was a bad month for me. My Grandmother died she was 97 she died 02-03-2013. I she had lived on 02-23-13 she would have turned 98. My birthday was on the 16th. I am always down when my birthday arrives. I look back on my life and wonder what I have accomplished and I really feel like I have not accomplished anything. I am trying to be happy because today is my Daughter's birthday she's 26. I can't believe so much time has past and how quickly time goes by. March is also National Crochet Month and I have not crocheted at all. Tomorrow is St. Patrick's Day and we have 2 Corned Beef Brisket seasoned and waiting in the refrigerator. Yes I know this is an American thing, never the less, we have the cabbage and I plan to make green potatoes. I hope every one's winter crafting went better than mine. The weather is warming up and I hope to do better in my crafting life.
