Starting on design...

finally of my June 12for2012 project that I am working on for my sister. This is what I was able to accomplish over the past IHSW weekend. I am so excited that I am finally working on the actual design instead of just the wording and border.

Crochet and I items I got today...

I have tried to learn how to crochet and my issue is being able to keep the edges straight. I had heard this book was really good to learn crochet and had lots of pictures. I plan on practicing and practicing until I get it right. Earlier today I did pick some this lovely varieated crochet thread (perhaps it could also be used for tatting?). I also got some good movies at the clearance section, a John Wayne collection that includes 25 of his movies with a documentary for only $4.99! Can't beat that. It will be a gift for my dad as he loves John Wayne. Also for $4.99 I got the movie Raising Arizona, love that movie. I used to watch it all the time as a kid. See pics below! By the way I am going to be participating in the IHSW so will post progress pics later.

Check In for The Classics Club

Well, I haven't gotten very far as I would have liked too. I am still on my first book, Pat of Silverbush by LM Montgomery. It wasn't until around page 100 that I felt the book became interesting. I am not even halfway through and hope to be able to read more soon. I am really excited to start reading some of my other books, but if I do this I fear I will not finish them all. Since joining this club, I have looked into other books that I think might be good, which has led me to buy a lot more books. I don't plan on reading them though until after I have reached my goal for this challenge (around 67 books or so).
