Picture of Bookmarks for Relief Sale

These bookmarks are crocheted of 100% cotton, size 10.

Not shown because they were already mailed off in sympathy cards, are 3 other straight bookmarks and 2 crosses.

Twelve done in 10 days, with these 7 in the last 3 days.

I didn’t get a call to work as a TA Sub on Friday, so I finished a bookmark I had started the evening before, then two more while sitting beside a sunny window.

Several of the shaded threads were in a gift box from Mary at Mommma’s Corner.  Since these will be donated to sell at the Mennonite Relief Sale next weekend, I was just the middler who worked the hook.

The University is on Spring Break this week.
The difference in traffic is quite noticeable.

This doesn’t mean that Husband is off, but still, somehow he seems more calm.  Since there are no classes in rooms, he and the tech team are able to do some cleaning and maintenance and updates.

All the geekie stuff I don’t bother to learn because I depend on him so much.

Son Chris also looks a bit relaxed.  He and a friend are using free time to be doing research for an apartment.  There are plans for him to move out this summer, even though he will have classes to finish for his Bachelor’s degree.

I say we have plenty of room here in the house.
He says it’s time to go.

I worry more about how lonesome our cats will be than whether the kid will make it on his own.

I suppose how quiet my Inbox and phone have been this week is a good thing.
I’m in the middle of getting a tooth crown replacement, and the temporary makes my mouth feel too funny to talk.

Really,  I haven’t been inclined to mingle.

I’ve been busy with my hook.
The folks at Thursday’s weekly Yarn Group are greatly impressed with my output.  One says her Show-n-Tell can’t compare to mine.

We each do our part.

Once the Relief Sale is over, our whole congregation heads towards the easy chair, for awhile anyway.

Gonna go.  Laundry to move along.

~~love and Huggs, Diane

    I’ve just finished the last of 3 baby afghans since the first of February and now have started a regular afghan for a friend. I can’t knit for beans so it’s all crochet.

    Love your bookmarks. I don’t suppose you have the patterns printed out so you can scan them and email them to me? If not, don’t even worry about it. Several people have asked for the patterns to the afghans I made but they’re all in my head. I memorized the patterns and lost the paper copies years ago.

    Hope you have a restful and enjoyable weekend, Diane. 😉

    Love and hugs,

    The other day while at lunch an older volunteer lady was making a hat on one of those looms you talk about…she said she makes them for the new babies on floor 2. I was like AWWWWWW very pretty and cheerful colors.

    Hope you have a great week off.

    Ah but without the hook my friend it would just be a pile of string!! They are lovely as always. Take it easy and stay warm.

    Well, Diane, my pattern page is wrinkled and doodled so much that nobody else would know what’s going on.
    I’ve had it at least 10 years.
    However, I have a bid in on a newish copy on E-Bay and hope to get it.
    Three more days on the auction tho.

    Most of my bookmarks are just regular stitch patterns that I’ve worked with a smaller steel hook and the size 10 bedspread cotton.

    I’ll see what I can do.

    These bookmarks are always well-received as gifts, and sell out every time I donate for charity crafts.
