WOYWW 224--A little of this and that

Happy What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday! I've been in my own little corner in my own little chair trying to teach myself crochet! However, my desk is busy with a little tag making, and I had just finished up a scissor holder necklace (I'll post that story Thursday). It's just a busy week, and there's a mosquito flying around me right now, and daughter and I just finished watching a movie, Easy A. Life is good...and I hope I see your desk in the morning!
I can't live without my hole punch grommet maker!
Found my little organizer thing, and I'm filling it with mini projects for on the go!
Eat, Write, Dream, and Stitch Happy

  3. We had a crochet lesson at craft club a few months ago - I was NOT a natural... abandoned, never to pick up a crochet hook again... good luck! Helen 22

  4. Keep the faith with the crochet... it WILL come, I promise you! I found I was all fingers and thumbs at the beginning and then it all just clicked and now I whizz along and, at last, understand the methods and why you have to do certain things like chain up 3 at the beginning of a row. It's taken a while to sink into this ancient brain...but it's there now!!
    I've been sewing loads these past few days, all stuff to send to other WOYWWers for their charities. A combination of rainy days and not feeling too clever have meant a very productive time in my crafty room!

  6. Ah ha! You have the same hole-punch, grommet maker as me! I call it a Crop-o-dile, which was its marketed name and I like to think of it as having a kind of snappy personality! Oh dear, there's no hope for my madness, these days! I've never learned to crochet. I must take my auntie up on her offer to teach me sometime. Happy WOYWW! Julie Ann xx #45

  8. Crochet is well worth learning! Once you 'get it' it will be easy and you will do it without even thinking about it! Happy WOYWW! ♥ Karen ♥ 87 x

  11. Why is it mosquitos seem to find a spot near your ear and buzz around? LOL. And you have yourself a mini organizer for projects on the go...that's great. Always able to work on something. Me? I'm more of having a book to read at all times. :-) Brigita #97
