Andy finally got his Christmas present from me hung at work. He put a thin piece of wood through the casing with pre-drilled nail holes so he could hang it without harming the wool fabric. I think it looks great and anything OU makes him SMILE. I should take a picture of his entire office - all OU, all crimson/cream with touches of black.
|He sent me the photo in a text, so it is what it is. lol|
I haven't mentioned that I'm trying to teach myself how to crochet. I think my mom taught me some as a child, but I've wanted to take it back up. Another good distraction technique for the pain. Only problem I'm having? Counting. This un-medicated ADHD situation isn't working. When I need to do 1 stitch, then 2 stitches, then 1 stitch, the 2 stitches..........well.....forget that. lol I saw a counter thingy at the store - do I need to get that? Any tips?
Today is day 6 of my self-taught plan. Thank goodness for videos on You Tube! Here is what I just made - see my errors to the right hand side (among who knows how many others)? I'm still pretty proud of myself, though!
|I picked purple yarn........shocker!|
Fun way to pass the time. I'm sure my family and friends are going......ggrrreeeaaaaattt...now we know what we're getting for gifts! lol
