Behind The Scenes ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿงถโ˜ƒ๏ธ

Hello my lovely friends ๐Ÿ’• How have you been? I hope all is well in your neck of the woods ๐Ÿ˜Š

All is good here…except we’re all getting a bit cabin-feverish. It’s so, so cold ๐Ÿฅถ โ˜ƒ๏ธ

The recent snow brought us some beautiful scenery

But we’re ready for Spring-flowers – so today I turned my ‘ Jim Shore’ pillow over. From ‘Winter’ to ‘ Summer’! I hope Mother Nature will get the hint, and we’ll get at least the average temperatures for this time of year! ๐ŸŒž๐ŸŒท๐ŸŒท

๐ŸŒท๐ŸŒท๐ŸŒท๐ŸŒท๐ŸŒท๐ŸŒท๐ŸŒท๐ŸŒท๐ŸŒท๐ŸŒท๐ŸŒท๐ŸŒท๐ŸŒท๐ŸŒท๐ŸŒท๐ŸŒท๐ŸŒท๐ŸŒท๐ŸŒท๐ŸŒท๐ŸŒท๐ŸŒท๐ŸŒท๐ŸŒท๐ŸŒท๐ŸŒท๐ŸŒท๐ŸŒท๐ŸŒท๐ŸŒท๐ŸŒท

I’ve suffered from a touch of ‘bloggers block’ lately ๐Ÿ˜• I’m not sure it’s over, but I won’t know until I try. Right? Maybe some pictures with comments to get back into the groove of things? Okay…here we go ๐Ÿ˜

While the Laptop got a bit dusty, the crochet hooks were quite busy.

I made another vest

The new cardigan ‘Opposites attract’ ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

I like the idea of two different-color halves…so there may be quite a few of them in the future ๐Ÿ˜‰

The second one is already in the works…

And I have an idea for a third one…

The sun came around the corner just as I snapped the picture, so it’s hard to tell that the right side is a deep black. I’m not complaining though…just saying she could’ve waited another second ๐Ÿ˜Ž

It’s not the best picture, but you get the idea of the colorway ๐Ÿ˜Š

The big fail for last month was this coat…

I loved it while I made it, kinda liked it when I tried it on (it’s heavy!), and started to get an uneasy feeling about it when I put it on the mannequin and started taking pictures ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ

It stayed on the mannequin for a few days…then the decision was made – it has to come apart. And I wasn’t even upset – I guess that’s a sign that it was the right choice! ๐Ÿ™ƒ

Notes to self:

1. Bulky yarn is not the perfect yarn for long coats (it gets reeaally heavy)

2. Do not use the Double-crochet stitch, especially when placed between stitches, when

working with bulky yarn (the stitches pull apart)

3. Don’t weave in ends until you’re 100% sure that the piece is perfect! It’s much, much easier to take something apart when the ends are still dangling

And last but not least…Georgia Mae’s blanket is finished ๐Ÿฅฐ Big yawn…I guess it’s quite cozy…

Now it’s back to one of the WIPs ๐Ÿคฉ

I hope you have a wonderful week! ๐Ÿ’•

      Hello Tracy ๐Ÿ˜ Thank you so much ๐Ÿ’•
      You know me so well… I do love my crazy colors ๐Ÿ˜
      Yeah, this storm was a doozy. And these temperatures! ๐Ÿฅถ This morning we had no degrees…but no wind – that helps a little.
      I saw that the โ€˜snow-eventโ€™ was down your way. The guy that was buried by a roof-avalanche…he made our news ๐Ÿ˜‚ And the wife taking a picture first, and dug him out second ๐Ÿ˜†
      I hope your temps have recovered by now! ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ’•๐ŸŒท

      Thank you so much, Kathy ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ’•๐ŸŒท Iโ€™m lucky that the crazy child inside me comes out to play once in a while.โ˜บ๏ธ
      Iโ€™m so done with this winter weather ๐Ÿ˜• Hopefully this was it! I just wanna open all the windows, and be outside more than 2 minutes! Iโ€™m sure you feel the same! Be safe and warm my friend ๐Ÿ˜Š๐ŸŒท๐ŸŒท
