I also started a new hobby in my free time. My friend Melissa taught me how to crochet one day while our little kids were playing together and the big kids were at 4-H. She did a great job showing me what to do, and hopefully I will improve with lots of practice. I'm glad that I've met some wonderful people in MN and Melissa is definitely one of those.
Melissa- Thanks for the hook, thread and pattern to get me started!
My first crochet project. Don't look too close because I kept forgetting what row I was on and I couldn't tell the difference between row 2 and 3. Oh well, I definitely won't be starting any complicated dress projects like my friend Gretchen, but I figured it didn't have to be perfect to wash dishes.
At least I know it makes a good peek-a-boo toy.
Over the past two weekends we have been busy building K-man a new bed and we are very pleased with the results. K-man loves it, we had fun together as a family building and it cost us way less than if we would have gone to the store and bought a bed made with real wood.K-man is always ready to help with any project we do. He can use more tools than I can!
All the helpers, helping daddy assemble the bed after it was stained. Notice all our wonderful snow! We did this part of the project in the driveway because it was sunny and we were hoping the stain would dry faster since it was only in the mid 30s.
Now we just have to finish up our bathroom project and paint all the bedrooms. I'm sure I'll keep Shawn and the kids busy all summer long.
