I love hearing her curse when she misses a stitch and has to pull out a whole row, but shhhhhh, dont tell her.
she could always make a bunch and put them at a flea market or something. She can always tell people that does not make to order and that she sells as she makes them.

I remembered!!!!

Ok, here are the sweaters I've made for legogirl..... the maroon one is hard to see but I love it, its got big chunky cables in it..... too bad it only fit her a couple months. I think I may make one for myself when I can afford to do it with the yarn I want.

There's also a doily I made and a bunch of snowflakes... those are all thread crochet. They'll look better starched and stiffened but I haven't got around to it yet.

I've threatened DH with plastering the house with doilies because they're so pretty.... but I've been threatened with divorce.....

Well I really went gangbusters on those, plus I wasn't working at the time, so really just a few weeks....
I'm afraid to start another at this point because life got so much crazier now that I'm back to work., but I really want to!!!!

Well make something that doesnt have a time limit (something that can't be outgrown) that way you can just work a little at a time....Im sure with the new job you will need something to unwind your brain before bed with after a long hard day!!

Well this is the only project that I have actually finished I have ALOT of counted cross-stitch pieces that are all "in progress"
Hmmm guess I should have taken in out of the frame before I took the pic!!
