Winning Feels So Good!

I was tickled to find out I was this week's winner for Getting Loopy's drawing. Getting Loopy is a podcast dedicated to topics relating to crochet. It's hosted by Mary Beth Temple, and it's informative and FUN. You can listen to the show live on Monday nights at 9:00 pm EST or catch a repeat from the archives.

I won seven patterns and some yarn from Robyn Chacula. I can't wait to try her designs.
If you aren't listening, you are missing out. They give away great prizes every week.

Digging in the Crates

I'm attempting to get my garage organized. Right now it is a semi-organized mess because everything are neatly piled, but it is still cluttered to the point where I'm jacking myself up trying to get to things.

So, I have about 5-6 plastic storage bins in there, and I'm taking them out one at a time and going through the contents. I've done some magazines, some books, and other miscellaneous stuff. There a tub of sewing patterns and fabrics in there that I don't even want to look at yet. Hundreds of dollars worth of patterns and I've made none of them.

I found this tub full of yarn and crochet projects that I'd forgotten. A Sponge Bob graphghan that was barely started and abandoned, a camisole that was complete except for one bra cup (I think the cups didn't provide enough coverage), a bunch of projects and experiments in various stages of completion. I still haven't looked all the way through the bin. No telling what's on the bottom. Right at the top I found this shrug jacket. It was finished except for THE LAST ROW and adding a button. I don't know why I didn't finish this.

I shudder to try to remember what is in my storage unit.
