Me and my Puppy Spud in Florida

Image
This is a recent trip to Fort Pierce Florida.  We took our new little puppy Spud.  He travels pretty well now.  However our first experience taking him across town was not so pretty and he ended up car sick.    We found using a cage keeps him feeling secure and happy.    There are motels who do permit pets.  We stayed at the La Quinta in Fort Pierce for the two trips we took.   The experience was good both times.  Now when we got home, my husband realized he forgot his pants, shirt and belt in the closet.  We called and asked them how we get his clothing back.  They recommended we go to the post office, get a box with a prepaid shipping label and mail it to them in a mailer.  When I talked to the post office, they told me the box would need to be weighed with shipping being based on weight so the motel would need to pay the costs.   He ended up asking his cousin to pick up his clothes.  Times sure have changed.  Back when my daughter was a baby, we forgot some clothes in a drawer and…

Crochet Geek Lace FunTimes on Carnival Cruise

How many of you are working on crochet lace?

My son asked me to make a lace tablecloth for him about 40 inches across.  I have been working on it for about 3-4 months.  The cruise was a good time to work each motif piece of lace.  I have about 12 more to make before its complete.  Maybe I should have taken another 8 day cruise to complete the tablecloth.  We left April 17 out of Port Canaveral on the Carnival Valor and came back on April 25, 2015.  This was a good vacation and very relaxing.

Crochet Tip - Crochet Geek

Image
This is a crochet tip for reducing holes on the edge of your work.

and i'm going to point out

something here that i did

when i was first learning how to crochet

what i would do is

i would just find one loop like this

and wrap the yarn over pull through

and i tended to crochet a little bit tight when i was first learning

pull through all three

and you can see what happens here

then you end up with this big hole here on the side

the solution for this

is going through two loops like this

wrap the yarn over pull through

yarn over pull through all three loops

and then it keeps things in place

just like that

please remember to rate, comment, share and subscribe

always remember to have faith and believe in yourself
