Back to my regular knit, crochet and craft routine. These hobbies are what keeps me sane.

Life got in the way. I was in a very minor car accident at the end of April. The other driver was 100% at fault. Nevertheless, it prompted me to make more life changes. I didn’t want to post anything in case the insurance companies were monitoring.
Anyway, the end of the school year has come upon us. My middle child was home for 2 weeks and helped me sell more things on Craigslist. We have almost cleared out the garage since the 3½ years since my husband died.
Along with the contents of the garage we sold the 1977 Corvette. We were the original owners and it was another loss that took me a short time to grieve. Yes, it’s just material things but it is just another one of those life endings that had both of our names on it.
His paper trail existence is slowly fading forever. There is just one more big thing with his name attached…the house.
Prayerfully, I’m hoping that our three children will marry and have sons to carry on the last name and genes. His side of the family is very small and there are only four males left including our two sons.

Yes, I celebrated another birthday! My youngest brother’s family sent me this huge tin of Popcornopolis popcorn. I just barely finished the Popcornopolis cones that I received from the office Christmas party. Yum, yum, yummy Zebra mix, peanut butter mix and kettle corn. So much goodness all at once. I am so spoiled.
I was feeling the sewing buzz and revamped this Skechers bag into a Star Trek bag. When you purchase Skechers shoes they give you these cool nylon bags instead of plastic shopping bags. It’s the perfect size for my knitting/crochet and it’s so now. Browsing through JoAnn Fabrics, I spotted this Star Trek fabric and could not pass without buying it.
I simply made a slip cover and attached it over the original Skechers bag which is now the lining of my new Star Trek bag. Love, love, love…
Since I was already on a roll with the sewing I quickly cut out and put together this sundress. New Look pattern 6888 This is the second time I used this pattern and I love the carefree nature of the style, although it is basically a muumuu or house dress. This time I added contrasting pockets and because of the bold flower print, I had to add a smaller breast pocket to cover up a potentially embarrassing flower right over my boob.
To sum up my burst of creativity, I crocheted this Shawl which has an inspiring name…Have Faith.
