***Yarn Swap Update***
Today I found the chocolate for CT. Then I went back to the yarn store to purchase the yarns for our swap. My goal is to get it into the mail on tomorrow. CT, I hope you like it. My mom really likes it too and it's so soft. That's all I'm sharing. :-D
I've been working off and on on my mom's shawl, but I have been doing a bit each day. Yesterday I finally started seeing the light at the end of the tunnel, so to speak. Currently I'm on the row with 7 shells and I have to get down to one shell. So, I'm getting there. Then I saw an alternate edging on Ravelry and that's what I'm going to do for mom's piece. I wasn't real particular about all that fringe.
***Finding My Niche***
As you know, I love crocheting. You can probably look at my FOs from this blog and from my Flickr page and tell that I like to make a variety of things. Right now I'm in the "excitement" phase. That's the phase you're in when you realize that crocheting is more than blankets and afghans and you're just so happy to make whatever. I'm there, but I hope soon to find my niche. Mom and I talked about that tonight. I feel confident though that at some point that special gift will come shining through and no one will have to tell me that that's it for me. I'll know.
Let me share with you a crafter that has found her niche: meet Erica. I've known Erica for many years, and I'm glad that she has found her special place in the craft world. Check out her blog too.
Now, I'm going to finish my broccoli and cheese soup from Panera Bread (oh it's good) and work on the shawl.
