My WIPs are going S.L.O.W.L.Y. I really don't have much to do, but I'm so unmotivated when I get home form work! UGH! My goal is to finish the potholders THIS WEEK! I'm 1/2 done w/ the bear, and then i have to start on the Beehive. The blankets are just going to have to wait...still...

 

Weekends I spend all the time I can with the Kids. I miss them SO much! So Crocheting gets put on the back burner then too... I hate that I had to go back to work, I was spoiled being off for over a year! I feel like I'm missing out on EVERYTHING, and that my BFF is raising my baby. :( I'm pouty today... sorry girls! Does anyone else expierence Mommy guilt? I could use some support right now.

:blush reporting...a few stitches here and there, nothing significant to report in about. I was seriously hoping to be finished with baby pink granny but it's getting close. I can only do tiny yarn for so long, so why do I continue projects with that yarn? LOL!

I am still making the Elmo purse. :lol I actually started a cookie Monster too. I am at a standstill, waiting for solid black animal eyes for the pupils. No matter how hard I tried, crocheted pupils looked too tacky and made them look surprised! So right now, I have two red and two blue fuzzy circles waiting for action. I think I will make two more, but make them as pillows for my 2 year old son, who LOVES Elmo. I also finished a new market bag for a giveaway, but I'm waiting until the first one is received to post a picture. :devil

yeah both take a bit of yarn. Though I did get the wavy one done with 2 skeins of the varigated (I think..time lapse lol) and 3/4, probably a bit more, of 2 pounders

Ok, the pot holder set is DONE! WOO HOO! I'm now working on DD's afghan. I'm hoping it'll work up quickly.

 

On a bitter-sweet note - I lost my job last week. So now I'm incomeless, BUT I get to spend the days with my babies. It'll be cool for about a week, until I run out of money.

 

however, this will Definately give me more time to work on projects. :D
