Have mercy it is Friday!!!! Thank You

Finally it is Friday. I thought I would scream and bang my head againist the wall of my office before the day came to an end today. I am thankful to have a job but thank you Lord I don't have to go to work tomorrow. We have to much work and to little time. I know I could work overtime but I don't get paid for it I get comp time which means if I want to take a day off I can and I will get paid, but if you take a day off you just get further behind and yes all of us need a day off every now and then but I have vacation time to take care of that and I hardly ever take time off from work. I need money and I wish we got paid for the overtime I could use the money and it would make the extra time at work worth it. December means overtime I am taking extra days for Christmas and I will have to work at least 2 Saturday's so that's what I will do I just hope we are able to get everything done. We need more workers. I really hate the fact that I don't know so many of my client's, when I first started to work at DSS I knew most of my clients and if they called me I did not need to look them up on the computer because I knew something about them now every client I talk too I have to look them up so I can help them it is sad. Thanksgiving is coming next week so this means just 3 days of work next week. No crochet today I did however make it to Hobby Lobby so this means only 2 skeins of yarn left to buy. I need to call Hobby Lobby in Greensboro to find out if they have the Butter color yarn I am looking for my local does not have that color. I have maybe 5 more rows and 1 of the crochet lace shells afghans I am making will be finished, and then I will need to finish the red crochet lace shells afghan I plan to make it a large afghan. My book did not arrive today maybe tomorrow. Happy crocheting and knitting.

Still working on my plan

Today was payday so after work I continued to work on my plan. I went to Hobby Lobby with my coupon and brought a skein of yarn #2615 Light Celery, so only 4 skeins to go I can get 3 skeins this week the 4th I will have to search for that one they don't have it at my local Hobby Lobby. It sounds like a road trip to Greensboro they have a Hobby Lobby and I can pay a visit to A C Moore received an email 50% off coupon!! and a craft fair going on Saturday. Still no book today oh well the did say it could take at least 10 days. Happy crocheting and knitting.

Well what can I say?

It is Tuesday night I am tired House is on and I don't know why I am here on this earth. No crochet today not yet anyway and I am not sure I will tonight. I had a long hard day at work and tomorrow I plan to buy a lottery ticket. My plans are to pay a visit to crochetville and then watch TV. I should crochet it is always soothing. I checked the mail when I got home today and still no book I guess it is going to take awhile I really want it to come soon. I already have a project picked out. I might do something that I should not and order the yarn that the designer used online for the pattern I am sure it will be my 2 months allowance for yarn money to get the yarn for the project. We shall see what happens. I might order the yarn for my sisters scarf at the end of November I think I am changing my mind about my scarf I am going to make I am thinking about the Surprise Me Striped Scarf from Hooked Scarves 20 Easy Crochet Projects, by Margaret Hubert the scarf is made from Kureyon by Noro 100% wool 3 skeins it is a self striping yarn and from the picture it makes a very pretty scarf. I am sure it is warm and my sister is very cold natured. We shall see what happens I can't remember the price of the yarn I will have to visit the site again to check the price. Happy crocheting and knitting.

I had a very long day and then came home and checked the mail no book so I will have to keep waiting. So far not a lot of crochet did just a little at my morning break but could not make myself do any crochet at lunch or my afternoon break. I need a miracle when it comes to my job I am thankful to have my job but I am tired of all the stress. I have to many clients and not enough time. So tonight when I am watching TV I hope to crochet most of the time I find it makes me feel better to crochet. Happy crocheting and knitting.

Another Crochet Lace Shells Afghan

I started another crochet lace shells afghan last night while I was watching TV instead of being good and finish up the 4 dishcloths that I have going at the moment. I am using the TLC Baby yarn that I brought on clearance at Hobby Lobby it is a sport weight 3 ply 64% Acrylic 36% Nylon I have 4 skeins and it might take all 4 to make a nice size afghan. It is a just because afghan and I am trying to build up items to try and sale at a craft fair if I can find one near me next fall may the fall festival in my daughters homecoming does not fall on the same weekend next year. I need to make sure it is okay to sale it was a free pattern so I guess it's okay, I don't want to do something that is illegal. There was a big talk on this about 2 months back at Crochetville they always keep up with all the important this on copyright laws. So I will go to Crochetville and check it out. I checked my email today and guess what another 40% off coupon from Hobby Lobby this week, I really think they are trying to keep up with AC Moore because you did not get a 40% coupon from Hobby Lobby but once a month. AC Moore has one weekly. If wish I did not live so far away from AC Moore 30 miles and so I can't visit the store daily and get good use out of the coupon. I will visit this weekend coming up to get a skein of Patons Classic Merino Wool for the one skein scarf in the Happy Hooker crochet book. Planning a scarf for my sister for Christmas. Also planning to make scarf for my nieces and nephew. I think I am waiting to late for all the grand plans especially since I cant seem to get finished with the dishcloths and potholder for the family. Another long work week ahead and I know already it will be just as bad as the last one because the cases that need to be processed is very heavy next week, and it would be nice to come home on Monday to my new book I ordered last Getting Started Crochet by Judith L Swartz it is a great book looked through it at the library and decided to buy got a good deal on already received a confirmation that the book was in the mail on Tuesday. So maybe tomorrow. Happy Crocheting and Knitting.
