Planes, Trains and Automobiles

It has been a hectic and busy past two weeks, and I am still on the go! The trips to Dublin and London went well, but I did not get back to Brussels until 10:30 on the Friday night and then left at 7:30 on Saturday morning to fly to Chicago and then drive the 4 hours to Michigan! Long and tiring but I managed to arrive safely! I have had a great time here - camping with my nephew, going back to Chicago for my award ceremony, shopping at Walmart, JoAnns, Hobby Lobby and Michaels, going with some friends canoeing and camping over the weekend - a great time in all so far and I have one week to go!

The nicest thing about travelling is the time on the planes to crochet! I used some of the Sugar'n Cream that my Secret Pal sent to me to make up these dish cloths: Dish Cloths

I have also been trying to be more free in my crocheting.....to those ends, I randomly started crocheting and ended up with half a mermaid, half an alien and several bookmarks!

Mermaid Alien Bookmarks

I also received an excellent swap package from the Sea of Yarn swap at Crochetville from Stacey:

I've been busy while in the US putting together a few little packages to mail out to participants in the Christmas in July list at Crochetville - I brought back some Belgian chocolates to include with the packages - hopefully they don't melt too badly in the post!

More once I return to Belgium on Monday!

Nice travels! That half mermaid actually looks like it would make a cool looking bookmark too. and every woman knows Belgian chocolate tastes good in any form, melted or not. LOL

Yippeee! You're back...well, at least to blogger. Sounds like you are having a great trip!

This is probably obvious, but if one were to slip stitch the alien head onto the mermaid tail you'd have an amazing FO!

Mmmmm....belgian chocolate. Mmmm...pommes frites. Mmmmm...beer.

Can I come visit?
