I Might Be Back!

I am slowly but surely coming out of my funk! Don't really have a lot to talk about and not feeling real spunky yet but wanted to say thanks for all the nice comments you all left me and for your concern and emails. It is nice to know when your world is falling apart that there are people out there that care.

These are a few items I have been working on. It goes slowly as my mood improves. Then I go into a slump again and stop, so this is just a rendering of what has been on my hook. This cute little candy kiss. I used an "F" hook and Herrschners Halloween yarn, donated to me by my sister.

This item was requested by my daughter. I used the lip balm pattern from JPC and a steel #7 hook. I used #3 thread and added the sequin flower. Sorry it is not a very clear photo. My daughter calls it the Awesome Blossom.

These next two items were started before I went into my funk and just finished yesterday. They are made with cotton, the first is an acrylic and cotton blend called Cotton Plus, donated by my sister. It was just a partial skein and I was not sure it would be enough for an entire washcloth. The blue is some yarn that was sent to me by June, see side bar for link, and I don't know what is was since there was no label. But it was some type of cotton.

This second cloth is known as an illusion cloth. I have never made one of these before. It is suppose to be five eggs but there were errors in the pattern and the corrections that were sent were also incorrect and we were not aware of it till the cloth was almost done. So I can't say at this point if I like illusion cloths or not.

Most of these items will be going to my CFAC group and I am off now to work on a throw that I am completing. More on that the next time.

That's it today. Ghost, OUT!

Ghost, first of all, all your things are beautiful. Secondly, I've really missed you. I know what you mean about being in a "funk". I've been in one for months now and can't wait till it passes. If you need time, take it but please come back, we really love and miss you. :)
Hugs, Cherri

Nice work, I like the kiss best and now I can see the egg on the was cloth. Very nice.

I have heard of the illusions cloth but have never seen a pattern. I think there was a class somewhere at one point. Good job on it despite the pattern errors. I can see where the eggs are.

Wonderful to hear from you here again. I've been worried about you!

Love the squares, sorry to hear you've been in a funk. Your blog looks so different I was confused where I was. Actually thought I was on Sis's blog, must have clicked in a different space.

I'm sorry I'm not up to speed to know about your problems, as I've lived at the hospital. Whatever they are, here's a (((((((HUG))))))) for ya.
