2 crafty. 2 many ideas. 2 much yarn. 2 many pattern books. 2 many craft supplies collecting dust. Time to get moving. Past time to define myself. This begins my journey.

Something New Saturday - Spa Set
Yesterday I spent a lot of time "working out" with more cotton yarn. I don't know why I feel like it takes more strength to crochet with cotton... This Spa Set (Crochet World - August 2010) includes a wash cloth, scrubbie, and puff. I used some cotton yarn from my stash - so not really spa colors. I think the puff gave me the most challenge - working through all the ruffles, and wondering "am I almost done?" But I really turned out neat, and I'm glad I tried it. Next test is to see how it holds up when put to use.
Last week I gathered everything up for my November box to send to Online Angels. Shown are 250 squares. I made 50 more squares to make 300 in the box. After these, I think I have about 60 more to make to reach my 1000-square goal. Also included in the box are some fleece blankets I found at the drug store marked way down. And then some hotel toiletries and condiments collected for me by my husband and some co-workers. These items make great stocking stuffers for senior homes, shelters, children's homes, and hospitals.
