Happy Tuesday Artisans and Blogosphere!!!

I had no Monday updates because my Big Cozy progress was very disappointing, I had to unravel many hours of work, because I did not like what I was seeing.


Frogging is not my favorite hobby or activity or anything, I dislike it intensely, but sometimes it is necessary.

I am trying to stay focused on finishing BC , before this month is over. If my WIP list does not get smaller, then, I am NOT  going to devote myself to Tapestry Crochet.

I am not going to have a million and one unfinished projects lying around. I like seeing the harvest of my labor πŸ™‚

All of this is to say that I so want to go on another Road Trip and I already know what item we will make on this Tapestry Crochet trip, but I do not want to get too excited, at least not YET….

Have you finished anything lately? are you happy with your progress? have you learned anything new?

I have learned that in Crochet counting is usually a good thing to do every single time πŸ™‚

Okay, let us keep this post short, I have work to do, See You Later.. 




  1. I only hate frogging right after I just made something. But if I wait a few days I actually enjoy it πŸ˜‰
    I have a few of my own unfinished projects right now that I need to finish. An Elsa doll from Frozen and a crocodile stitch cloak I’ve been working on since April of last year!
    What have I learned recently? How to crochet fingers on my dolls πŸ™‚

    I’m working on a big granny square blanket that I fear will go on forever – I have decided on an end point but still another 5 loooooong rounds to go. Love the process itself – which is just as well haha – but I’m really itching to decide on the border and see how it turns out! It’s my first big blanket. I’m also working on Zooty Owl’s current CAL – Wade’s Blanket – am almost 2 parts behind as I started late, but catching up well. I’ve mastered tc and also learned what a difference turning every 2 rows in a granny square can make. Oh and also this afternoon for the first time I made a magic ring without needing to watch a you tube. progress! πŸ™‚

  3. I am sorry that you had to uravel so many hours of hard work and I agree with the importance of counting stitches, otherwise things will not look right, although that depends on what you’re making and where the mistake is.
    I am making an octopus which is a new touristic attraction in La CoruΓ±a, north west Spain, where I grew up. The real thing is quite large and made of mossaic in sits proudly on the sea front Promenade. I searched high and low for nice souvenirs last time I was there in February, but I couldn’t find anything nice, so DH suggested I crocheted one. I’ve drawn a sketch on grapsh paper and I am counting the stitches like mad. I hope to finish it withing a week or so.

  4. Hope you got through the frogging quickly and are back on track. Reward yourself for each row! That’s a trick I use when I’m slogging through to the end. Bribe the crafter.

  5. Oh there were many a times that I wish I had a) counted the dang stitches, and b) checked the actual guage! gah! But on a happy note I’m 89% done with a baby dress I made for my god-daughter πŸ˜€ Keep on pushing is what I tell myself and do better next time!

  6. I desperately need to get some new supplies!

    I recently used an old scarf to make a two pocket pouch to carry my cell phone on my lap as I propel myself in my wheelchair.
