Unless life gets extremely complicated this week i should get it completed this week & then I'll have a picture to share. WTD: +4 YTD: +192

    2018 Stashbusting CAL

    Hi everyone!! This week I was working on a new CAL from the Crochet Graph Lobby Facebook group. The group just celebrated their 2nd anniversary and the moderators decided to release a Birthday Bingo CAL. Everyone was given the first block to work on, then people post pictures of their completed block and ask for the next one they want to work on. There are prizes for the first 3 people who get a Bingo (5 completed blocks) and a grand prize for the first person who makes a complete blanket of 9 blocks and a banner all put together. I actually won the first Bingo prize because I was the first person to complete 5 blocks! I was given a $25 Joann's gift card as my prize! So over this week I used up 3 skeins and 5 balls (+11) and I bought 2 skeins of the background color just in case (-4). I'm currently nearly done with block 6 and I'm aiming to try and win the grand prize this week 😁 WTD: +7 YTD: +188

    Happy Saturday everyone!! This week I made the rest of the bonus squares for my Myriad CAL (total of 10) and did the 8th section of Myriad. I finished 4 skeins on that (+8). I also made a Gingerbread Boy to go with the girl I made last week and used 2 balls (+2). And then a Pumpkin Cuddler that took 2 balls (+2). I've started the first square on a new crochet-themed CAL that just started today! This is something new for me...they gave everyone the first square, then once you finish the square you have to post a picture of it to the group and request the next design you want to complete. Should be interesting. WTD: +12 YTD: +181

    2018 Stashbusting CAL

    Happy Saturday!! So I am reporting on the past two weeks due to the hurricane...I completed my Something Magic blanket and used another skein and ball on that (+3). I made a stuffed Santa that I am so completely not in love with but my youngest loves it so it's not a total loss..used a total of 2 skeins and 5 balls on that (+9). I made a gingerbread girl and used 2 balls there (+2). I made myself a cardigan and used 4 skeins and a ball (+9). And I have made the next section of the Myriad CAL and one of ten bonus squares to make it a rectangular blanket at the end...finally finished a skein on that (+2). WTD: +28 (12 last week, 16 this week) YTD: +169 and here are my pics...

    2018 Stashbusting CAL

    Hi everyone! Just checking in. We actually got home today! I did get a little crochet done over the past week but i don't have my info handy so I'll just add it in with this week.... We have been so blessed throughout this entire thing! We had a safe free place to ride out the storm. We had time to get all the important stuff packed before we left. We got home without any incident even though there were flood warnings everywhere. We got an inexpensive beautiful big hotel room in a town that was supposedly completely booked...and it only took 2 phone calls! When we left this morning, we found a gas station with no lines, plenty of gas to fill both vehicles, again in a town where everything was either sold out or had crazy long lines. We got all the way home through roads that were flooded yesterday and are expected to flood again in the next day or two....and as a final blessing, my daughter's boyfriend was with us the whole time and had left his car at our house. He apparently left the inside dome light on in his car when we left on Wednesday morning. This afternoon, he started his car without any problems to get to work. I simply cannot express how incredibly happy I am right now. We are expecting to get power back in the next day or so....could be an hour. Could be next week lol. I'm just gonna play with my yarn and enjoy the time w my family ♡

    Hi everyone! We were 4 hours inland when the hurricane hit, but we live about 20 minutes from New Bern, NC. I'm sure you've all seen New Bern mentioned in the storm updates. Thankfully, some local friends who stayed were able to check on our house this morning, and our home has gotten through intact with no flooding nearby. The water is still rising and will be for several days. I have no idea when I'll be able to get home again. I'm stressed, but we are all together and safe, so I'm trying to focus on the positive.

    Update...our county has been given an official mandatory evacuation order. So, tomorrow morning Hubs, our 4 kids, the eldest's boyfriend, our pup and I are loading up and heading out. I have no idea when I'll be back on, but I know it will probably be around 10 days to 2 weeks before I can get home. If you pray, please say a prayer for NC 💕

    Hi everyone! I hope you're all well. We're getting ready to get hit with this hurricane on Thursday/Friday. We're definitely going to get hit pretty hard, but so is the whole state of NC, so I'd rather be home and stranded then somewhere else and stranded. I'm pretty sure we're going to lose power for an extended period of time, so I'll be posting my score on Wednesday evening just to be safe....unfortunately I've got the shoot the moon for last week and i don't know if I'll have internet to do that. Just wanted to give everyone the head's up....

    2018 Stashbusting CAL

    Hi all! This week I worked on both my CALs...completed Something Magic part 7 and Myriad parts 4, 5, & 6. I finally finished 3 skeins on Magic (+6). Then I decided that I am going to make stuffies in between working on these CALs because now I'm all caught up so I'm probably going to have some down time waiting for the next parts to be released...and I think there's only another week or two for Something Magic...so I printed out a bunch of patterns, organized my stash, saw a 30% off coupon for Michaels and went and got the yarn I needed for my new to-do list! 8 skeins (-16). Today I made a Frankenstein's Monster cuddler and about 90% of a Vampire cuddler. I used a total of 9 balls (+9) on those. WTD: -1 YTD: +141 I'm wondering if I could pick your collective brains on something though...it's just been announced that my church is holding a craft and vendor fair in late November. I'm thinking it could be fun to do one at some point as a way to reach new customers. is $25 a reasonable fee for a 10 x 10 space including a 6 ft table and 2 chairs? Also, what kinds of items would you suggest I make to bring? I'm thinking Christmas themed cuddlers, maybe some stockings, possibly bring a finished CAL blanket as a backdrop? Would it be strange to have pictures of items I've done to take orders from? Would baby dresses and blankets be good? I honestly have no frame of reference with this, so any info or tips would be hugely appreciated!!! Thanks in advance!

    Hi everyone!! Ok here is my official score post for myself for the week, and then I'll tally up the group scores This week I did the 6th portion of the Something Magic CAL, I did the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd parts of the Myriad CAL, and I finished the first part of the Cosmic CAL. It's been a CAL kinda week . I used up 2 skeins and a ball (+5). Then....I saw the Farmer's Alminac report about how extremely cold this winter is going to be...and I realized I'm already starting to have issues with being cold (I've lost 80 pounds in the past 4 months and my body is trying to adjust lol)...so I realized I'm going to need sweaters! Remebered that I'd made myself a granny square sweater thing year ago but have never worn it and decided to fro gthe entire thing so I could use the yarn. I don't remember exactly how many skeins I used, but it came off in a total of 12 balls (-12) so that's how I'm going to count it. WTD: -7 YTD: +142 Next week I'll have part 7 of Something Magic, and trying to catch up to the Myraid CAL (next week part 6 gets released). And hopefully I'll be starting on a sweater for myself....the last one I made was a 3X size. This will be an XL!
