My Crochet Creations

Well I started yet another project which makes 7 WIPS in completed lol, not counting my kitty kubby lol. This is a baby blanket for my friend who isn’t sure of the gender yet so I’m making her a gender neutral large granny square blanket, with white, minty green, and mellow yellow, all yarns are red heart. Β I’m using a K hook.

So far I’m loving it! This is my first large granny square so I hope it turns out nice πŸ™‚ Β she loves the colors and told me to decide what pattern to make, originally I started making a simple v stitch pattern alternating colors but it just didn’t look right to me, so I 🐸 frogged it and started over. My question is, how big should I make it for a newborn? I’ve never made a square baby blanket so I’m not sure on sizing.

Living in “Sunny” San Diego… What a joke

I seriously think Mother Nature got her map confused, it’s supposed to be nice and warm all year round, not so cold where I can see my own breath!!! I so can’t wait til summertime!!!! The new apartment we moved to back in October has a really nice, unheated pool, so this summer we get to teach our little boy how to swim! I seriously wish that there was a jacuzzi, but finding a place with a pool was hard enough, let alone a downstairs unit close to my husbands work, that we could afford! 
Lately we have been thinking about moving tho, closer to my husbands family, and closer to my grandmother. It’s like they got our weather and we got theirs! Moving to Florida would also mean that Spencer would be closer to his cousins and get to grow up with them.  We do have family out here but it is very limited, and we rarely see any of them anyways. But that would mean a huge move, and my husband would need to find a job before we moved so it looks like the move will have to wait until he gets a job that he can transfer to another state. Meh, anyways. 

I’ve been crocheting a little here and there but I still have Christmas presents that I haven’t sent out due to lack of motivation to actually complete them, not that I don’t want my family to have them, I just haven’t been feeling up to crocheting the last one due to a massive fibro flare caused by this insanely cold weather!

Long time no see!

Well I know it’s been a long time since I’ve written here so I thought I’d get my page up to date. So hubby and me found a new, bigger apartment close by, and I am completely dreading the move!!! It’s a lot bigger and my son will have his own room. It’s bitter sweet, it’s good for him to have room to grow as a little human, but I don’t know if this momma is ready to let him lol!!!! He is growing so much every day, he knows how to walk without shoes, with shoes he falls every few steps lol. He has 8 teeth, he is 26 lbs, loves watching learning shows, and spending time with his momma. I can’t believe he is already 14 months old! I swear it feels like I blinked and BAM!!! He’s one year old!!! Where did the time go?! 

Well, another new change happened, we had to regime my pit bull Kahlua once again but this time she has a beautiful yard with wonderful owners who love her and run and play with her all day! ( when they aren’t in school lol ) we still get to see her whenever we want so it’s good for all involved. 

Ahh!! I really need to focus some time on finishing some of my current WIPS so they will be done for Christmas!!! I finished a baby blanket for my nephew and I can’t wait to send it to him!! Check out the pics down below πŸ’πŸΌ
(Ohh! I almost forgot!!! The other day I followed a really neat YouTube tutorial on How to layer your own hair Along with dying my hair burgundy.)  


I hate hospitals

So, I’ve been here at my local emergency room since about 8pm and it’s now 1am. All they have done is give me pain meds for the abdomen pain I came in for, and my dr tried to do an ultrasound to see my gall bladder and ha! He couldn’t find it! I just wanna get outta here so I can freaking eat! I’m so frustrated right now. They ordered the ultrasound about an hour into my wait, so I guess it takes 4 hours to get a damn ultrasound!  Gahhh! I wish I had brought my crochet project so I wasn’t so darn bored!

Today has been pretty uneventful, mostly slept today, been in a lot of pain so sleeping is my only outlet to forget the pain. Hubby ran errands today and played with the kiddo. Hopefully I can get home soon and not be in as much pain so I can have a fun day with my son tomorrow πŸ™‚

It’s been a while…

So it’s been quite some time since my last blog. I’ve had so much stress in my life with family and people I call family, and when I’m not stressed or battling fibro pain, I’m spending much needed time with my growing baby boy who just turned one πŸ™‚


right now it’s almost 5am in muggy san diego and I can’t seem to get to sleep, partially due to fibro pain and the other part is due to my new light up crochet hook I got for my shells blanket I’m making my mom.


My mom has had 4 heart attacks in the past year, the last big one was so bad she was in a coma for about a month, she still can’t eat solid food without vomiting, her stomach just can’t handle it. She has lost a tremendous amount of weight, which is really bad considering she is 6ft tall and about a buck 50. All of her health issues really have had her down so I decided to make her a blanket to cheer her up and put a smile on her beautiful face.

Some other battles I’ve been dealing with is my dog kahlua. She is a 5 yr old pittie purebred and has a never ending uti that comes every few months, and she also has been real picky with her food so we have been battling to get her to eat. She’s my little fur baby princess πŸ™‚ 🐶


Anyways. That’s about all I can put into words for tonite. Hopefully I’ll pass out soon so I can get rest before I have to run errands in the morning before hubby takes off for work at 3pm.

So I went to pick up the blanket I’m in the process of crocheting and realized the last row was all wrong. Urgh! On a good note things have been just a little better pain wise, the humidity in San Diego has gone away and we are back to our normal amazing weather. It’s days like these I truly am thankful my hubby ignores me when I have sudden urges to leave san diego lol! So my son turns 1 on Wednesday, we have had 2 parties for him so far, and I have this gut feeling that my in laws are going to call last minute and ask us to bring him over to visit blah blah. Just a little back story, my mil freaked out cuz my hubby has never been close with his gpa so didn’t call on his birthday, so mil decided it was appropriate to threaten to show up at my hubby’s work and get him fired if he didn’t call, apologize for being 2 weeks late, and to say happy birthday. Can you say insane?! Ugh!

So now that I have had my rant for the day, I’m gunna watch big bang theory season 3, try yet again to start writing a book or short story, and hope to get some good rest. πŸ™‚
