The City of Crochet

Crocheting...an escape from everyday life in Europe as I face the perils of yarn shopping in a foreign country and dealing with all of the crazy looks I get for crocheting & knitting on the public transportation system.

Crochet you ask?

Sigh that is right...this is supposed to be a craft /crochet blog, and yet lately, that has been far from my life.

I did buy a new book of crochet food....will be working on those shortly.

I've also started back on that darn star afghan...reminds me someone what I was thinking on this thing! Lol

Made another bead necklace and earring set....future owner uncertain, picture to come!

Happy crafting!

The journey continues....

Everyday life continues to amaze me and change me in the process. 2 years ago I was starting to wrap up my life in Europe. I was already starting the packing process, saying good byes and looking forward to my journey back to the US and seeing what life had in store for me.

It's not been an easy 2 years.

As you know, I said farewell to the boyfriend of 3 years...emotionally difficult but what needed to happen for my own mental and physical health. Over the course of our relationship, I gained 60 pounds, mainly due to stress eating and drinking...its easier to keep a harmonious relationship when we are not stuck in the same apartment

I moved back to the US, and in that first year I lost 30 pounds, half of what I had gained.

I met Mike, and slowly went back into old habits when the relationship started to go downhill and he pulled away. I did not recognize it for what it was, but I gained back 8 of those lost pounds. I went back into focusing on an on-line gaming world.

Single now for 3 months, I have once again started to focus back on my health, and have lost those 8 pounds, plus another 7. I no longer play games on-line and my TV is rarely turned on.

I have another 30 still to lose. My focus is on health eating habits - no more skipping meals or eating junk food. With a focus on being more physically active - no more sitting on the couch at night watching TV.

The journey towards happiness continues....stay tuned....

Beading continues!

I continueto find time to bead...even if I rarely pick up my hooks and needles these days. Total lack of interest....I was in the middle of working on a set of play yarn food for the boyfriend mike's niece when he decided to split with me...since then no yarn at all....will start again I promise :)

Darling Vik is visiting from Buenos Aries...the necklace set pictures above will be returning with her to argentina as I gifted her the set. I hope she enjoys it!

No other news here...will be taking Vik shipping tomorrow...pictures to come!
