Some of you may have noticed the extreme lack of crochet posts. Some of you may have even noticed me posting notices that there will be crochet posts and then never getting to it.
Some of you may be throwing confetti in the air every time I don't post a crochet post, who knows.
But, there is a reason I have been neglecting my crochet posting duties. Are you ready for it?
My finished items keep disappearing.
You may remember that I am currently spending most of my crafting time on chemo hats for my church group's project. I went to a few meetings and made hats and felt pretty proud of myself. Then, suddenly, I stopped feeling proud. Why? Because an 80 year old woman in my group who claims to have never crafted in her life had made 30 hats to my 3.
Okay, so I have work and kids yadda, yadda, yadda. But, really 10 to 1. It's embarrassing. So, I quit making hats and started making flowers to stick on the hats. It's crochet again, instead of fake knitting and I love doing it and not many women in the group know how to crochet or knit for real, so it's not something everyone can do.
So, I have made about 7 flowers and 2 bows. The flowers aren't hard and they are quick. I have a bunch of patterns for different ones, but I've found one pattern that I really like that only takes about a half hour, and so I am just making them until I get tired of it, then I will move on to the next flower patter.
So, where are the pictures of these flowers and bows and cute, cute goodness? Good question. Every time I go digging in my crochet bag to find them and take pictures they are gone.
A little mouse is stealing my crochet flowers and feathering her nest with them. (Was that a mixed metaphor? Mice nest, but I guess they don't feather their nests... Verdict, please.) And that mouse's name is Brynna. Tonight, if she won't tell me what she did with them all, I'm going to have to ransack her room. It won't be pretty, but I am getting tired of working and working and having nothing to show for it. That's why I don't knit. :)
