long time no blog!

wow i been missing a LONG time!

i had gotten into a knitting/crocheting slump after starting my new job but have gotten back on the wagon.

no pictures of projects at the moment but soon.

I'm working on 3 projects

blocks for a blanket for my daughter
crocheted blanket for my son
and dishcloths for my kitchen

soon i'll have even MORE time to knit/crochet cuz in 41 days I'll be working from home, whoo hoo!!

i also will be updating my blog to get rid of the rings that i was in before but am not in anymore probably cuz of being away so long.

wow a year???

I cannot believe it's been a year since I've posted on here..............wow! well I ended up getting a fulltime job back in Oct 2007 so my knitting/crocheting activities are VERY limited nowadays, ugh. I do still do it occasionally but not as much as before which makes me sad. however my job provides opportunities to work at home so I know if I am able to work at home, it'll pick up again since nobody will be around to watch me knit/crochet while working, lol.

gift from hubby

my hubby bought me this gorgeous basket of flowers yesterday. it was the first time i got flowers from him in FOREVER. for some reason he thought i didn't like flowers when i ACTUALLY said i didn't want to get roses all the time. (i think he has selective hearing)
they smell so good too!

I gave the kid the afghan and.......

he was really shocked.........when i knocked on the door, he looked through the window and you could see his eye light up when he saw the blanket sticking out of the bag............when he opened the door he was hiding behind it so he musta been in his boxers, lol. he was just like "woooooooooooow, cool! that took you a really long time" lol. but you could tell he really liked it and i am glad that i still gave it to him (hubby was trying to convince me to keep it) . i promised him that i'd make him one and i didn't want to let him down like i'm sure he is sometimes.

my work is done.............lol.

now on to the next afghan for a family member, either my brothers or my mom or my grandma...hmmmmmmm. tough decision.

Afghan complete! yay

here is the afghan that i've been working on, i finally finished it. i did it in half double crochet (my favorite simple stitch, lol) I would say it's about 4 feet long and 3 1/2 feet wide. I am going to drop it off at my friends house later today so I'm hoping the kid I made it for appreciates it (he's different than his brothers) and likes it. He liked the colors when i showed him the yarn before I started it. I think it looks really cute, my hubby was sulking when he learned that I was still gonna give it away, lol. I told him that I have the rest of my life to be making these.
