Did you ever have this happen to you? I don’t expect you have, as no doubt you are organized and focused, staying on track no matter what. I have to confess that I am not any of those, at least not consistently. Even when I am talking to someone about something, a stray thought will cross my mind and pop out of my mouth, causing friends (and worse, strangers) to look at me in a puzzled way . . . my sisters call this “Oh, look, a blade of grass!” so when one of us says this, the other knows she has just slid completely off the track and onto some new and fascinating train of thought.
So, having just done what I am writing about (but I DID have to explain the title of this post, didn’t I?), I’m getting back on the original train now: I was checking out a few of my ‘favourited’ blogs to see what my friends in blogland are up to today and ended up clicking on links, finding new and enthralling sites, clicking on THEIR links, and . . . you guessed it! I have now ‘followed’ a whole pile of new blogs, not to mention all the blogsites I’ve added to my ‘favourites’. Here are a couple you may be interested in:
I just discovered this website: http://hooksandyarns.blogspot.ca/2010/08/my-crochet-hooks.html; the tutorial for making the handles is very well done. Check it out!
Another site: http://sunshineinternationalblanketsoflove.blogspot.ca/. Sue makes blankets for elders, hospices and more, She has links to patterns and a page about her ‘challenges’; if you want to take part in a challenge, make sure you note the deadlines. From the squares she receives, she creates lovely afghans for the organizations she supports. All not-for-profit! A true angel, isn’t she! She is happy to receive donations, too; those are put toward the cost of yarn, etc. If you are sending knitted or crocheted blocks, please note her request to contact her first: packages she receives are currently subject to customs charges. Personally, I think charitable donations should be exempt from customs; what do you think?
AND, while visiting The Green Dragonfly, I found pictures of the most incredible crocheted owls! She had a link to the designer’s blog, so of course I had to go there, too! And another favourite was found!! Go to Bunny Mummy to see how to make your own. If you start now, you will be ready for Christmas (or somewhat ready LOL) . . .
That wasn’t all I found, of course . . . but it’s all I have time to add now. We have a lovely sunny day and I’m off for the weekly grocery run. Hope you are all getting more sun (well, if you live on the northern part of the planet). ~ Linne
