here chicky!

By Tara Zandra | April 4, 2013

Have I mentioned here that I’ve started crocheting? I know I have on facebook, but seriously doubt it has been mentioned here. I started less than 2 months ago on a whim and it turns out, I really like it! Simple hobby that I can take with me, unlike scrapbooking or sewing. Of course, my bento making hobby is technically portable, but not exactly long lasting. So I’ve made this chicken family for Miss Daisy.


I shared The Doctor that I made for Tabi on facebook, but if you haven’t seen it, this is fashioned after the current Doctor (aka, Matt Smith).


Now I’m working on the tenth doctor and then I’m going to make something for me and a set of babies for Daisy. I’d also like to make Dee a hat and I have a friend who’s going to have a baby so I’d like to make a couple baby hats and diaper covers for her as well.

And I really want to get back into this hobby- blogging. I need to make a real effort as I do enjoy going back and reading past entries from time to time. And all you friends of mine who have stopped blogging for whatever reason- get back into it. If you think I’m talking about you, I am. Facebook has really killed blogging, I think.

Lastly, I’ve stalled in the losing weight mainly because I’ve stopped watching what I eat and am only working out sporadically. Yesterday I felt that mental shift where I recommitted myself so I’d like to think I’ll be back on track. I’m still holding at 18 pounds lost since last August, but I’ve got at least 22 pounds to go before I will even consider staying put. I really wish I could attend one pilates and one yoga class a week, but I can’t seem to make it work with dance and neither can I find a decent video game to use at home. I like the gaming aspect for some reason even though I don’t care about my score- but it works when DVDs never have.

So a hodge-podge entry, but it’s what I do best. I’ll be back tomorrow. Promise.

    I am so very impressed! Seriously! Wow. I have tried and failed many a time to crochet even with people trying hard to teach me. I’m just all thumbs and don’t “get it” as with any fabric arts, I’m afraid. I missed that gene from my mother’s side.

    I actually surprised myself at how quickly I picked it up! But I had a friend tell me it wasn’t that hard to learn so I kind of based it all on that. Definitely not something I would have predicted about me even as recent as a year ago.
