Lunch Date and Crochet Project

Today hubby and I went to see Red Tail, if you have not seen the movie you are missing a treat. It was a great movie.

I started working on a crochet bag. This bag was popular in 2007, and I found the pattern here in 2007. I cannot remember the blog, however I know that blogger live in the middle east and she knit and crochet the most beautiful things by creating her own pattern. The bag measurement is 13-inches wide by 16 inches long. My bag is HUGE, so I checked the instruction and guess what I used a size 5 1/2 crochet needle instead of a size 4 crochet  needle. Oh well, I am going to start all over again. I was hoping to have it done by the end of January. Oh well I am going to start all over again with the correct size needle and hopefully in the next two weeks I will have a finished crochet bag.

End of the Year Post and 2012 Goals

The first  major achievement was sewing two dresses here and here that fit my body. It needs a little bit of tweaking, however I am happy with the fit.

The second major acievement was organizing my sewing space. My husband did a moving job and was able to bring home several cabinets. I put them in my sewing space and organize my fabric. What a difference those cabinets made, I can put my hands on every piece of fabric I own.

The third project I am happy about was for Chase. I also crocheted a blanket for him. Another project I did last year was a scrapbook that showcase my son. My son will be celebrating his eighteen birthday in Febuary. More about the scrapbook in 2012.

My goals for 2012 are the following:
