Ready to run!

Run away screaming that is! I realize that I complaign about work a fair amount, apologies for that! But, once again its kicking my rear end! I was in work yesterday at 8:30 am and left at 11:30pm, to come back in again at 8:30 today. Tonight should be another late one, and then I have a 7:30 am meeting tomorrow with on of the VPs. Oh joy....I detest morning meetings, and to make it worse, its one on one!


Okay, enough with work.


The weekend went very well! My friend from Argentina, Zori, stopped in Brussels on her way to Shanghai where she will live for the next 6 months! Of course I am planning a trip to go and visit her! Probably in May, but it depends on my work schedule!


I had a few e-mails about the pattern for Chloe.


The book is called Crochet Les Doudous de Cendrine, autour du monde. And is by Cendrine Armani. Yes, the instructions are in French, but I think anyone with basic crochet knowledge should be able to work them out....there are resources available that explain the terminology from French to English on the web. And of course I would be more than willing to help anyone who gets stuck!



I started the Monkeys this weekend. They will be 17cm tall when completed with the Size 5 thread.



And my following projects after them will be:




The Pig will be about 30cm tall and the others will be 32 by 34 cm. So they are not very big, but they are super cute! I wonder how they would look done in yarn.....perhaps one day!

As for the other outstanding WIPs in my life.....

Peach Doily - round 11 of 35
Baby Blanket - 10 of 25 repeats
Sideways Scarf - 4 of 5 rows
Pooh Cross Stitch - about 90% done - just the outlining to do

Progress is being made on my goals....slowly but surely!

Wow, those dolls are so cute! I think what makes them so lovable are the colors used and the facial expression on them. I love the pig!

I just have to have that book now! Thanks alot Kimberly. :)

I can't wait to see the other's done. Especially the monkey.

Kimberly said...

Gee Kelly - you are so very welcome! *grin*

The book is cute, there is a second volume which I'll try to get some pictures of which has a cute cover, but the others in the interior are not as cute I would say as this book?
