As you all know, I fell behind in my English 101 class in the fall. After the deaths of my son's father and my stepfather, I just couldn't get back on track. I took an INC and now I am trying to complete the work. I spent some time today organizing my work and I am focused and ready to get started again. I will keep you all posted.
I also took so before pictures to show you all of the soon to be craft space. I will post them in the morning. I promise. Just know that the space is a little bit of a mess right now.
After vowing not to waste any more time on HIM, he finally called (in the middle of the night) and asked me to come get him. Of course he didn't call until Saturday/Sunday but at least he called...Have I mentioned, I LOVE HIM!!!
Peace and blessings...

Diagonal Stitch Blanket for a baby boy. This is one of my favorite patterns because it works up so fast and it's cute. I am hoping to have most of it completed by Sunday. I learned how to do this stitch here: http://www.crochetcabana.com/stitches/diag-box-st.htm
Below are random pics from the party. I made the banner (used photo paper), my lil sis (I love this girl) stayed up with me the night before making the loot bags (Backpack), her Godmother (Cece) purchased the cake (it wasn't what she wanted but it tasted great!!!).

Have you ever know someone forever and no matter what whenever you see that person you get butterflies in your stomach? Ever wonder why??? Well, I believe I found the reason. Your IN LOVE with that person. How did I come to this conclusion? Well, it happens to me every time I see HIM. I can't tell you who HIM is but I am sure one day you will know. I've know HIM for a long time and he has always had a special place in my heart but I never knew it was like this. I thank God for HIM and I pray that God works out every issue he is dealing with right now.
Enough about HIM (this is what we will call him). LOL
Onto crochet. What have I been working on. Now that I am all settled in the new place, I am working on the Side to Side Cowl Neck sweater from LionBrand (for me). Yesterday I received an order for a baby blanket (baby boy) so that needs to be completed by next week. I choose the pattern and brought the yarn with me to work today. Let's hope I get to take my lunch today so I can start it. Oh yea...I need a scarf to match the hat I made myself when winter started. Did you know it is supposed to be 19 degrees this weekend? And that's the high.
Keep safe and warm.
Peace for now.

I am pretty happy with the third floor apartment. My favorite part is the closed in back porch (yes, it is heated). I have decided that this will be my "office". I am having shelves put in as soon as I get a few extra dollars. I also have a nine cube storage thingy so I plan on using that for yarn storage. (I would like to get rid of the bins). The closet space in my bedroom is horrid so I will have to reserve some space for me clothes in the office. Not a problem... I think I will take some before photos so everyone can see the difference in the end. I also like this space because it is away from the rest of the house. Which means, it is quite. Finally a place for me.
As for crocheting projects, I haven't done much lately. Although, I have a lot of things in mind. I only finished 3 of my 12 blankets so I will work on those. Who cares if the kids didn't get them for Christmas. I didn't see them anyway. Maybe I will just give them as birthday presents instead...
Speaking of birthdays, Zaria's birthday is next Thursday and I wasn't going to do anything because her dad didn't want too. Well, now I am giving her a party. Nothing big but this means I have a cake to bake and decorate. Last year I made a cake and cupcakes and I think I will do this again. The theme...DORA, of course. I will post pictures.
Peace and blessings for now.
