More Progress

More fish progress. I have also been working along on the mystery crochet project, trying to get it finished up. Just a little work left now on that one, and after it is sent to my friend, I can show it off.
We just got back from meeting my brother and sister-in-law over in Dallas for lunch. We all share birthdays in September, so we decided to meet for lunch to celebrate. Today is my brother's actual 44th birthday. My SIL's birthday will be on Tuesday. We ended up having to fight a little Dallas Cowboy game traffic, but it wasn't TOO bad. Go Cowboys! :)

Crochet Fish

Just a quick post to show you what I worked on last night while DH was working.

The pattern is by Eboni. I saw it on Ravelry when she completed her first one, and I fell in love with it. Then, after Eboni had the pattern written up, Christy over at My Best Friend calls me Martha made a few for a blanket, and after I saw hers, that clinched it, and made me want to do some, too! The pattern calls for an H hook, but I used an F hook and Vanna's Choice Baby yarn. I tried the H hook that was called for on my first try, which in my opinion, made the fish look gigantic. So I frogged what I had done, and tried again with the F hook. However, I feel like my fish still turned out HUGE. I usually crochet spot-on with gage, but I'm not too sure this time. Also, it was hurting my hands to work the bobbles (but remember I haven't been crocheting much, lately). I will try a few more and see what I think about making a larger project out of it. If my hands keep hurting, I might end up with a potholder instead. :) I Love the pattern, and Eboni's instructions are easy to follow!

Happy Birthday to me!

It was my 49th birthday yesterday! I got a lot of nice gifts and many phone calls and cards.

Beautiful birthday roses from DH, along with some perfume.

Aren't they beautiful? I just love the color! My co-workers gifted me with a fruit arrangement at work on Friday! Isn't it the coolest? And it was so good!

We went to our niece's house today to celebrate three family member birthdays. DH discovered the zip line they had installed for their kids, and had to give it a try. Lots of fun and fellowship! It was a good birthday!

Friday Blues

Yes, you read it right. I have Friday blues. My little slice of Paradise has been invaded. I came home from work last evening to find our house had been broken into for the second time in so many years. Not much missing (that I have found anyway) except a box of cheap costume jewelry, but its the feeling of my home being invaded that has me blue today. Thank goodness they didn't harm our dog, just locked her in a bedroom.
