half way

Image
So I've passed the half way point of the page. 56/98 rows finished.


Unfortunately I also caved to the Christmas in July sales. I have many more ornament kits on the way...

But in lieu of those items, here's Clyde. It took 6 months, but he finally likes the bed we got him. Although being a cat, he still likes boxes.

Busy week

Image
I didn't get as much done as I would've liked. Dead tired Friday, spent Saturday making 2 scarves for my mom, and my "weekend" was filled with doctor's visits... So only up to 44 rows.


During a visit to my parent's, sat on my old bed (which Clyde has claimed as his) and didn't quite know what to make of me being in that location in the house.



Last photo was taken after we put him on the bed.
Although he's finally taken to his bed about 6 months after we got it for him. Silly kitty.

1/3 of the way through page 3

Image
That's a lot of three's.


Got some more stash. I swear this should be the last of it for a while. (Must resist HAED sale...) The majority of the cross stitch was because I was ordering from Sew and So and had the need to make shipping worthwhile.



 Saw Clyde yesterday. These two photos were taken seconds apart. (Mom was getting his attention for me)



And had some visitors. Mom and 5 babies (2 were under the porch at the time of photo)


Where did those lights come from?

Image
Almost 20 rows completed on page 3 of this. This is one of those pieces that your so on top of, it takes a photo to realize something appeared.


So I went to another Yankee game yesterday, didn't get burnt this time, but I'm still slightly red from Memorial Day.

By the way, the two guys on the left are 5'11" and 6'2". Aaron Judge (#99) is a very large human being who will make me feel tiny if I ever meet him. (I'm 5'10" for reference)

And here's Clyde looking cute. He somehow found a hole in the pillows to have his own little fort.


Trouble with wearable items

Image
So my fit issues with crochet items I want to wear continues. Initially went with a larger size due to pattern 'bust size'. My gauge was a little larger than required, but figured it would give me a bit more room to possibly wear a bra under it. Nope. turned out way too big. Kept hook and went down a size. The band fits better but now I'm worried about coverage. I know there's a border, but still worried.



So, taking a break while I figure out if I keep going or modify the top. So back to Alternative Reality.


The prince appears

Image
I have finished page 1 as well.

 Some more stash arrived.


And here's Clyde lying in front of "his" closet.


Onto crochet!

More colors!

Image
I have color other than gray and yellow! I don't think I'd ever be happy to stitch green. Oddly, I think Insanity it next up in my rotation.


Here's some stash I got, still more on it's way, the holiday delayed some packages.



And I went to the Yankee game on Memorial Day. They lost, but I don't think this photo is so bad. I did get a tad burnt though.
