So I decided that I am going to start a video series on youTube. Yeah, I know, everyone and their brother have the same thing, and mine isnt anything new. But I am going to post these on my blog. Of course, its a knitting/crochet video series. I have a palm centro, so I am going to use it to my advantage.

So I joined this site, called mom bloggers club. Im guessing it is a site for moms(hence the word "mom") that blog. I really like it.

I got stuck working today. It isnt my weekend to work, so Im not that happy. But in the same aspect it adds 8 hours to my normally 20 hours every 2 weeks paycheck. For those of you who dont know, I am a laundromat attendant. It is a decent job, because I literally get paid to sit on my butt. I am aloud to work on my projects, and I can take my laptop, and I can have my kids,or my friends at work with me. Couldnt ask for a better job.

So I am halfway done with the eagle blanket. I am about 5 rows away from the head of the eagle. Yay!! I cant wait to get this done and get it sold. I just hope the person who is supposed to buy it doesnt back out. I wont be happy.

Ugh! I have not been sick(flu type)in almost 2 years. So low and behold, I am currently sitting on my couch, feeling like I have been hit by a mac truck. Last night I started getting sick, and then the girls both got sick too. I love being sick, and having to take care of sick ones as well, not!!

Today wasnt so bad. I just ached all over. And I still do. But hey life goes on.

So I have a job interview at Wal Mart tomorrow. I am kinda excited. No it isnt really the type of job I want, but until I graduate college, its what I have to deal with. So hopefully I get the job.

I might work on my project. Just havent decided yet. A hot bath and bed sounds better.

It is really cold out today, and kinda gloomy. So here I sit on my new loveseat...I got a new couch too. I love it. The love seat has two recliners on it. So I have my new comfy spot when I knit and crochet,or play guitar hero,lol.

I havent worked much on my projects. I actually went through all of my craft totes Friday evening, and have reduced my stash from over 4 totes, down to 2 totes. I took apart most of my projects, except for 2, and all the tangled yucky yarn got pitched and the yarn I knew I would never use, I gave away. So now I have one large tote with yarn, and a tote for projects, and now I just need to go through all of my books, and weed out what I will never use. I literally have books that I bought just for one project in it. So yeah, time to go through them,lol.

I am currently working on my eagle afghan. It is turning out pretty good. It is my first big chart afghan, so I am kinda proud. After I get finished with it, I have one more blanket I need to finish. Then I can get started on the pair of socks I want to make for a resident at the nursing home I used to work at.

I know this is probably some sort of "sin" for a crafter to say, but I can honestly say I am getting bored with my latest project already. Call me weird, but I guess I never have been into the big projects. I get bored with them easily, and have a tendancy to put it aside to start a new one. But I know I can't on this one, because I am getting paid for it.

I don't really know what to charge though. I know the project is 177 sts across and approx. 100 rows, give or take a few. It isnt going to cost me much to make it, but it is going to take some time. At this moment I have around 6 rows done. I think the toughest part of this will be the eagle. hopefully it turns out good.

well i am off to grab a bite to eat. then i will attempt to work some more on this "great" project of mine.

so my blanket is now finished.

it took me almost a year,lol. but it's finally done. and now i am working on my next project, which is a paid project. my neighbors dad saw the train blanket, and said he wanted one with an eagle, and he would pay me for it. so i found a good chart with an eagle, and created a pattern with it. hopefully i can get it done in a fair amount of time.

but i am going to get back to working on the new project. hope everyone has a great evening.
