Today is the last day of the Knit & Crochet Blog Week Challenge… I can’t believe I was able to post all 7 days!  It has been fun and I hope you enjoyed it too!  Our last assignment,,, Day 7,,, Is to talk about “Where we would like to be 1 year from now with our Crafting”…

I have already stretched myself this year by opening my blog and life up to all the world with my crochet… It has been a great experience so far…  But, my main goal in the next few months is to get my Etsy Store up and going… It isn’t so much the work it will take to get the store open,, Its more having enough crochet products  available…  Thanks to  my friends at our local store Alpine Originals, I sell many pieces each month there… So I will have to step up my game and get some things going for online sales… Who knows, all this crocheting could work into a full-time job at the rate I am going…

.

Since my topic for the last day is asking about the future, I didn’t have any pictures to post to go with the subject,,,, So, I though I would show you a few pictures from my life… Hope you enjoy!

So here is to What is in the future, My daily life and hanging out with my friends at Church!  Now it’s off to Crochet,,, Can’t Wait!!!

I had the spring bug to crochet something colorful… It has been blowing snow here the last couple days and although it is spring,,, It sure hasn’t felt like it!  So,,, An African Flower something was my thought… A Potholder, Pincushion,, or …. A Paperweight!   Yes,  a paperweight will be great… I have a collection of Mt. Shasta River Rocks I collected up above the lake last summer to crochet doily style paperweights… So with hook in hand once again, the experiment began!

River-Rock, Flower-Power Paperweight…

.

I think they turned out so cute!  I will have to make more and at least one for my desk at work where the papers get blown every time they guys crack a window… Of course,,, this one is for Alpine Originals and will be up for sale later today!

.

Here is just a peek of the blowing snow yesterday… it didn’t stick,,, but it was wet and windy… No fun to be outside…
