Just a Bunch of Crazy Hoosier Gals-- and a Guy or Two

We had a great meeting this month of our crochet group! I forgot that I had brought my camera until Ann had gone, so one of our group is missing from the photo. Have to get her in the pics next time!

Steve, as usual, made goodies for everyone to eat. This time it was his famous chocolate mousse, served in tiny Belgian chocolate teacups and topped with maple-flavored whipped cream and tiny dark-and-white-striped sticks of--- guess what--- chocolate! (I think this was Nancy's husband's favorite "project" at the meeting!)

It was fun to share what we all had been working on. Shelle (from Crochet Cabin) brought the most projects--- she made me feel lazy! Nancy was crocheting away on a gorgeous baby afghan, Stephanie was working on a burgundy ripple afghan, and I brought the Bon Bon Print jacket I'm making for my mother-in-law.

It was a lot of fun!

My New Bag Pattern

Finally--- I got a better photo (but only marginally better!) of my newest crocheted bag and was able to update and publish my pattern. I've been so busy lately with family (two new great-great-nephews on the way) and health issues that I really am very behind in my pattern writing and publishing.

The Come to the Point Handbag was fun and easy to make, and can be made in a variety of worsted weight yarns. I crocheted my model in cotton simply because I had purchased several skeins of Bernat Handicrafter Cotton Naturals last autumn and I loved the color combo of New Natural and Chocolate Ombre. My niece saw the fimnished model and fell in love with it, so it is now in her wardrobe. A lady never can have too many handbags!

My New Blog Home

I've moved--- my blog, that is. My life has been so busy lately that I had neglected my old crochet blog. I intend to use this new blog wisely, posting info about new crochet designs, trends, etc., but not letting it become a burden.
