Since I can't rush the seasons, I am bringing spring into my crochet projects. For Christmas the mister took me to Michael's & I picked out quite a few beautiful colors for my next project. One project, which has already been finished is a gift for my Niece to be for her birthday. It's a double yarn, double crochet granny square lapghan. Since during Christmas she told me her favorite color is blue. I found this color called Turaqua... I LOVE it! I actually hope to go back & buy some for me now! The picture doesn't quite show the awesomeness of the color itself. But it's a perfect shade between Turquoise & Aqua. I did the double crochet using two yarn strands, one of the Turaqua & one white. :)
I've had a hard time deciding what my new project will be. I already have the colors. A set of pastel colors blue, purple & yellow along with white. At first I wanted to make a granny square blanket & patch it together, sadly... my ADD is not letting me continue on with the squares. The few I have made are absolutely adorable & I am sure I will use them for something, but not for an entire blanket. So, my next thought is a Granny Stripe Afghan. I'm sure I will keep you all updated on what happens there. lol.
Today is day four of my Vegetarian journey & I am honestly not doing too bad. I actually feel better, I have not had heartburn since day one. Hooray! Tonight's dinner is a Vegetable Barley Stew. As it sits in my crockpot it smells AMAZING. I didn't quite find the recipe I wanted online, so I just decided to go with my gut & throw in what sounded good... The soup has golden potatoes, carrots, celery, onions, red bell pepper, fresh garlic, yellow corn, parsley, diced tomatoes & barley. Can't wait to try it & see how I did. :)
Doctors appointment tomorrow. I'm wondering if I have lost any weight since Thursday. I sure hope so! Anyway, life goes on either way. I know that sometimes it takes a while for your metabolism to kick in. Hope you all had a fantastic weekend!
P.S. I've been thinking about doing a Crocheted Item Giveaway... not sure yet. But I would like to before the end of this year. Hmm, I guess that can be one of my goals for 2013. Perhaps if I hit 50 followers. ;)
