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.

Date night...it's hockey time!

Hockey tonight with Steve for our date night this week. Came to see minor league hockey - chicago wolves vs grand rapids griffins...I'm cheering for g.r. since they are from michigan about 30 minutes from where I grew up.

Valentines yesterday was great..very low key - Steve cooked dinner for me at home. It was yummy!

I'm still working on the blanket...need to hurry since baby Alyssa is now a week old! :)

The dog's are getting along great. Beau is now about 80 lbs and a total lap dog lol

Have a wonderful week! Happy crafting!

Pizza making!

Had great fun last night making pizzas. We made our own dough, and then loaded up the toppings before throwing it all in the pizza oven! Both of our pizzas turned out great, and we had fun making them together! Can not wait until our next date night out!  Attached are pictures of our masterpieces!

Forgot to mention yesterday...I entered a cake into the office superbowl dessert contest and it won first place!  I made my grandparents lemonade cake...yummy! One of my favorite non-frosted cakes.

Have a wonderful wednesday!

Tuesdays are for pizza making!

Happy tuesday everyone! Tonight me and Steve are heading off to pizza making class! Signed up for a lesson in groupon...should be fun learning something new with him!

Things are going great between the two of us! Steve is officially moving in the end of the month when he can terminate his apartment lease. He and Lil' Bear haver been here now since new years without any issues. A smile is constantly on my face these days! :)

I am still working on the baby blanket. Finished 2 more squares last night...slow but steady! Need to think about what my next project is going to be!

Still have not organized the craft room and books...focusing on other areas of the house which need it more....i.e.last night I cleaned out the closet and dresser, getting rid of junk and garbage including 6 parties of old shoes...I told steve to hurry and throw them out before I changed my mind!

Have a wonderful tuesday everyone!

February already?

The year is flying by once again! Then again it usually does when one is happy and keeping busy!

Beau is keeping me busy, along with Steve's dog Lil'Bear...I will not say they are best buddies, but they are getting along...more so now then at the beginning!  Having 2 dogs makes me almost want a third one...will wait though...Lil'Bear is 14 now, so in a few years will most likely pass away...will consider getting another dog then!

Crafting right now consists of working on a baby blanket for a co worker who is expecting a little girl soon. making a simple squares blanket, 2 sets of basic squares and then a third set of squares with a star pattern on them...pattern from a ball band.

I leave you with 2 photos...one of the squares, and one of Beau! Happy February!
