More Shirts, Cables, Hearts and Stripes

I've been busy these past two weeks. I've been looking for a job and trying to organize this house and move around furniture and things. I did manage to get some crocheting in of course. I also went to visit my cousins this past weekend and our art project that I took along was tie-dye. I think the kids had a good time, and here are the results, except Travis' picture is lost.

I also completed 5 squares for the Football Charity Challenge this week. I decided to do the 63 Cable Squares because I'm also apart of the CAL on the 'Ville. Here they are...

#1 Lobster Claw Cable

#3 Diamond X

#11 Cable in a Diamond

#32 Diamond X

#35 Chained Diamonds

I've made some progress on the Flag Ghan after not touching it for months. I finished all the striped squares, and I only need 9 more heart squares then I get to assemble!

And the Piano Purse which has been finished for a while.

Wedding Pics

This past Sunday I attended a lovely wedding for a former coworker of mine. We used to work at CompUSA together for nearly 5 years until the store closed in May. I've got a few pics, unfortunately none of the couple.

Me and Chris

Me wearing the jewelry I got from V-Hooked for the accessory swap on Crochetville.

The gift we made for the lovely couple.

Placemats, Hotpads, Napkin Rings, and of course the lovely cake.

Here are some square I made yesterday to send out for various comfortgans. The took about an hour to make each, so you can see I spent at least 4 hours yesterday crocheting. The rest of the day was spent wondering around IKEA to get furnishing ideas and BestBuy looking for a washer.

For some reason I was in an orange kind of mood this past week. I made 3 things that were orange! I guess considering what they are it kind of made sense, and for the cupcake that looks like an ice cream cone, I was too lazy to find another color.

Here's some pieces of the 8-Pocket tote I've been working on. Now all the pieces are complete, just have to assemble and make a lining.

And, speaking of linings. Here's the linig for the Piano purse. I still haven't sewn it in, I like to wait forever to finish the last bit of a project, not really sure why though!

Those are all the pictures I've got at the moment. I just finished a Circle Geometric Baby...guess what color!?!? ORANGE!!! and black. I'm also ready to start decorating for Halloween, but we've got a house to rearrange first, maybe I'll get some pics of the way it is now, and then take some during the process, and after it's completed. We'll be starting with moving our bedroom to another room in the house. This process will probably start on Monday, after we figure out what to do with the extra bed in the room we want our bedroom. Then, we've gotta empty everything else out and move our bed in and 2 dressers. It will be an ongoing process, but hopefully it wont take too long.
