“Play around with materials, colors, stitches. Everything is allowed! Crochet is a magnificent adventure that opens the doors to your wildest imagination and creativity.”
Here we are, another Tuesday Question. Hope you all had a wonderful start to your week yesterday!

Crocheting in Georgia You need to look at her cute little ghosts. Everybody aught to win this one so you can display these on your table.
House 9 She is giving away 5 really cute crocheted owls. The blog is in Dutch, but is worth to translate.
Clara's Crochet Room She has a bag with Goodies to give away. You must hurry so, today is the last day to enter.
Moppie Moppie Another Dutch blog worthwhile checking out. She has dog or cat collars to give away.
For others not mentioned here (sorry to say I have not been able to look enough lately, as you know), I have a link-yourself at the end of this post. I hope you all will used it.
Now to the Tuesday Question:
Have you ever tried Freehand Crochet or Knitting? If you have, do have an idea in your head before you start or do you just start working on the project and hope it will turn out? Lately I have played with the thought of trying it out, am just still a little chicken about it, lol.
Happy Monday Everyone! Hope you all had a great weekend and are now ready for the week ahead. Well it is Link-Yourself Monday and I hope many of you will participate.
Here now something I have been working on a little. Still not back in full swing, as we are still working on the house and craft shop, but it is slowly coming together. Will have to get in full gear soon, so I will have enough product for my new little shop in Hardy. Currently I am still working on some potholders, which seem to be selling around here pretty fast.
What do you all think of this design above?
Well off I go to get some things done. I am in Mississippi today and tomorrow and need to run a bunch of errands, plus I want to hit the Yarn shops here, as you can't find much in the country where I live now. So you all have a great day and I will share my new stash with you all soon.
As you have probably noticed I have once again been absence for the last few days. My plight with the Internet continues. In order to write my blog, I have to stay up during the hours of 1 and 5 in the morning, which are not the kind of hours I like to keep. Sorry to gripe to you again. We are currently 5 people in the house, all of us having computers and between us we are only aloud 375 MB during the daytime hours. With e-mail downloads, etc. it is almost impossible. Take my word for it. After that the connection slows down to slower the dial up speed. Scary isn't it in these times of fast DSL or Cable connections. Until I find another solution to this problem, I hope you will all bare with me. Thanks!
The weather here has been absolutely beautiful and almost perfect. Could live with temperatures like these all year round. How has it been where you live?
Have some News to tell. Last weekend we went to the little town of Hardy, Arkansas. It is a crafts Mecca. The whole little town is nothing but crafts stores and a couple of Restaurants. We saw so many wonderful handmade items and artisans, from Quilting to Oil Paintings. Since it is not to far from where I live and since the prices for rent are very low, I have decided, starting next March I will have my own little shop here. I will be carrying crafts from other crafters in the area, (They will also be featured in my online Store shortly), plus my own of course. I am looking very much forward to this opportunity and it has been a dream of mine. Will also have my yarn for sell in the shop. Here now a looksy at the town of Hardy:
Here now a little humor about the town. At one time these buildings were used by the Ladies of the Night to do their business. Men from the Railroad that runs through town were frequent visitors.
Hope you enjoyed this little trip with me. Will sure you more and share more with you about it in the Future. For now I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. Until we can see each other again, Take Care!
Hallo, sorry to say my Internet problems have continued over this last week. We once again had a repairman out over the weekend and hopefully were once again in business, at least for now. This is very much a downfall of living in the country.
Today I will show you a few pictures of my future crafts room before we started cleaning it out. Most of the things in it at that time, were crafts related, as this was a crafts room used by the previous owner before she passed away. Many things can be used in future projects and I am looking forward to working on them this upcoming winter.
We also had an Elvis sighting in a town nearby. Figured it would be fun for you all to see:
Ok, that's all from my neck of the woods for today. Hope to see you again tomorrow for the Tuesday question. Have a lovely day everyone!!!
