Crochetin’ Away

All week I have been bothered by the fact that not one post (not even mine) has a Like button. I didn’t have time to mess with it (or read any of your blogs) so I just let it go until tonight. It was hard for me to just let it go, trust me! I despise when things are not as they should be or when things do not work as they should.

I did some research for a remedy to that dilemma and found this in the WordPress support section: The Like button and any Likes will no longer appear on your new posts or pages (although the Like button will still appear in readers’ toolbars and in the WordPress.com Reader). There was no explanation. I find it very annoying that they eliminated this function from posts.

As I mentioned, I haven’t had much time the last few months. My 4th grandbaby was born on the 1st and I’ve had several crochet projects going just for him. I don’t mind at all because I love making baby items and the crochet keeps the arthritis in my fingers at bay. My daughter-in-law’s siblings are both having babies, baby girls, and very close together I might add, so I’m making a new set of crocheted items for them, too! Here are a few of the things I made for my grandson!

When I finish the baby crochet projects I need to get moving on holiday gifts. I have no clue where to start! There are so many things I want to make! Click here to go to my Pinterest page (link opens a new window) and check out my Crochet Inspiration board! I have over 2,500 pins on that board alone! Ha!

I’m hoping to have more time next week for writing. My mind has been totally consumed by yarn and hooks and patterns….. It’s a shock I’m not crocheting in my sleep!

To New Projects and New Beginnings!

I finished my last 2 crochet projects and am currently taking on a few more! My 4th grandbaby is due in September and I still have a few things left to make! I’m starting a stroller blanket, a nursing shawl, and a car seat cover. You can see the lovely afghan I finished in time for the baby shower here!

I get so excited when a new project has been completed. It’s such a wonderful feeling to see the end result of so many hours of work. There are so many items on my list of things to make…. Holy cow, you should see my Pinterest board! Hahaha!

I’m looking forward to having a 4th grandchild. I think this grandbaby will stay close, as I don’t think my dear daughter-in-law will want to go too far from her family. I love all of my grandkids so much but things aren’t as I’d like them to be. One lives hundreds of miles away, another is being raised JW, and the oldest was adopted by his other grandparents, due to circumstances beyond my control. That was a long and painful story….and the reason I started blogging.

I’m looking forward to this new beginning, not only for myself but for my son and his wife and their little one who will be here very soon!

…….And as soon as I finish my projects for #4 I want to start some projects to sell for the holidays. So many ideas and so little time!!

Peace be with you, my friends!
