    Projects that teach me something new
  1. Thank you for sharing that website Judy!! What a wonderful organization and I see there's a chapter up here! I haven't been able to do any crocheting this week or next. It's May. Pray for teachers. ????
  2. Hah, no she just shared it. I'm the only one who crochets in the family. This blogger dyed some of the doilies before sewing them together because she thought all white was just too blah for this time of year.
  3. Awesome! I'm intrigued by yoyos.
  4. Yay!!! I'm so glad you got it!! It's so pretty Mary Jo!
  5. My aunt posted this on FB and I'm all about it! So pretty!! You sew together doilies to make a table runner!
  6. Well all done with my April vacation (we always get the last week in April off). now it's run around for the next 2 months until school is out. This season always flies by! I didn't quite finish the project I'm working on. I want to show you when I'm finished but I don't want to jinx it. Mostly done though. Holy weather! It rained here most of the week, much to the dismay of my students, and probably their parents. The river outside our apartment was rattling the windows terribly yesterday as it went over the dam. But that's nothing compared to whatever is happening in the middle of the country! I only know what people in NE post on Facebook but there's is definitely a blizzard and winter storm warning for my home state. what a May Day! Then I read online that there's is crazy flooding in Missouri? Stay safe out there my friends. And now I better get to bed, back to school tomorrow!
  7. It's called Annelies and it's by James Whitbourn. We performed the chamber version. There is a nice video on YouTube with subtitles. It's mostly in English but it can be tricky to catch all the words.
  8. Thanks for the squares Katy!! It was super nice out today. Vacuumed the floor and just chilled a bit. Now hubby and I are gonna make din. It's supposed to rain the next 2 days I guess.
  9. Sandra, that is so bizarre! I'm glad your back. How frustrating!
  10. That's is awesome! Where did you get the pattern?
  11. Those are really really cute!
  12. Oh my goodness! I'm back! I feel like I blinked and the month is over. I think it took me like 2 hours to catch up with this thread. Sounds like everyone is busy! And sick, I really hope Snowbear gets better soon! A guy in my church choir just came back today after being sick for 5 weeks! He said he had the flu and then he had pneumonia. I'm glad to hear that most of you are feeling a bit better. Happy Easter! Easter time is always pretty busy for me but I wouldn't have it any other way. It is my favorite time of the year. Slightly more than Christmas although I do love my Christmas carols. I sing at all the extra masses and love it! The best part of this year was that the forsythia bloomed just in time for Easter! I didn't see blooms on Good Friday but come Easter Vigil, a bunch of bushes were glowing! It just isn't Easter without forsythia. The funny thing is, i don't remember forsythia in Nebraska but now I can't have Easter without it. Also, a parishioner at our church funded two angel statues at the front of church and they are lovely! Before Holy Week even got started I was crazy busy with my choir concert, which went very well. We did a Choral work based on the Diary of Anne Frank. It was amazing. Very very moving. Several audience members were in tears at both concerts. And I even broke down when it was all over. I didn't want to stop singing it. It was such a beautiful piece of music. Now I'm on April break so I'm off all week but I have plenty to do. I'm crocheting a sorta big project, but I'm keeping it under my hat until it's done. It's turning out lovely. I have school work to do and rehearsals to attend and cleaning to do. And I'm picking up some hours at my retail job Fri. and Sat. And then it will be MAY! Good gravy! Well that's my update. Katy, I haven't gotten the mail this week yet but will check tomorrow. Haha, PS. I just reread what I wrote and notice that I use a lot of exclamation points. I'm not shouting, I'm just very enthusiastic.
  13. Wow you have all been very busy I see! What wonderful projects! Anna, have fun in Greece! I love that lace egg you made. Wow! Not too much to report here. I'm working on a big-ish project. I think I'll be done soon but I'll tell you what it is when I'm all done. Don't want to jinx it. Concerts and Holy Week went well. Holy Week and Easter are my absolute favorite masses of the year. I think I like it more than Christmas. I hope you all had a lovely Easter too! Thankfully my schedule is cleared up a bit and I'm on vacation this week. All though I have lots to do and going on.
  14. Congratulations! Well deserved win!!
