And just what have I been up to for the last two weeks???? Not posting for one. And I have no idea why - I just haven't. I'll blame the rain, how's that? I think we've had nothing but rain for forever. Shasta Lake is 41 feet from the crest of the dam and has come up almost 5 feet in the last 24 hours......wow!
I have been busy with a few little projects. Here's either a dish scrubby or a dog toy - interesting to make, and Luna liked it.....
This is my quilt a couple of weeks ago. I now have it ready to put the last of the edging on (today, I hope)
Another scrubby I made - this one with netting. Margene wanted to learn to make scrubbies, and working with net in the round (and she wanted BLACK netting!!) for a new crocheter is tough. The rectangle is much easier to see and work.
I had a visit from a co-worker last week. She had a brand new god-granddaughter, and found a picture of something, and her boss had told her to ask me if I could make one for her.....good thing is was easy! She wanted a little crown for the new 'princess', She pickup up the decorations, and I whipped up the crown on my lunch hour at work - that's how easy it was! And it is sooo cute! Here is the base pattern. I changed it up a bit, but not much.
I also dug out an old UFO (Unfinished Object) and finished it last night. I so should have done this sooner - it didn't take lang at all, and it has been hanging out for well over a year. It was supposed to be a Christmas present for Allison two Christmases ago. I found the fleece at Joanne's and kept meaning to crochet around the edges. Finally - project finished!
This weekend is conversion weekend for much of the bank. We closed on our purchase of 5 branches from B or A - the Yreka, Colusa, Corning, Orland, and Willows branches. To try to introduce the 20 new employees to the rest of us (100+ employees), Malorie from my department got tagged to round up photos of everyone....here's the photo of my department.
