Gaze upon The Cathedral Rose Window Afghan project!
At long last, it is done! I started this thing
in January on March 1st of last year. So just two weeks shy of a full year to complete. I will note that I took a few months off to work on other things. I’m so happy.
Edit: uploaded a better picture. Clicken to embiggen! Oh, and now what to do with it? I have a wall space in my bedroom where I thought I’d hang it but I’m not sure how one goes about hanging something like this. Digging around on the interwebs other folks have pondered the same thing. One person suggested velcro. That. Just. Might. Work. I could sew strips of the hook side at the end half-circle sections and sticky the loop strips on the wall. I’ll have to take the TV out of the bedroom though. It’s not really a loss as I can’t even remember the last time I watched anything on it. Looking at this will be so much better than a big, black rectangle. *\o/*
In case you were wondering, this afghan is exactly seven feet across. That’s a LOT of yarn.
Yarn January 14, 2014Posted by Mitchell in Home.
I have yarn.
More yarn. Used to be a pool table. Now it’s a yarn table.
So. Much. Yarn.
You know what I did last night? Yes, I bought more yarn.
I don’t have a problem. I can stop anytime I want to.

Time to get into the Christmas spirit! Nothing does it better than good old fashioned Christmas music. Right? Right!

The Grand Project July 8, 2013Posted by Mitchell in Home.
This is what I’ve been working on the last few months. It pretty much consumes most of my attention these days.
Right now it’s about four feet across I think. Final project size will be about six feet.
No, I didn’t come up with the design myself. It’s the Cathedral Rose Window Afghan project I got for Christmas.

Last week I turned 43. Whee. On the plus side the Parental Units gave me a REALLY nice gift.
Here, take a closer look at it:

Mom hand cut each strip and sewed them all together on her sewing machine to make the top. Dad hand quilted the top to the backing with a line of quilting along each seam between the the strips. Yeah, it took a while.
I Went To Zion & All I Got Was This Lousy… April 17, 2013Posted by Mitchell in Vacation, Yorling.
Really cool stuff!As
As I mentioned there are a bunch neat galleries and shops outside of the park. Monday it got kinda cool & overcast so it wasn’t a great day for photos. We went & rode the buses that take visitors through the main valley. To get to the really neat places you have to do the hiking trails. Yeah we didn’t do that. Afterwards we went shopping.
Here’s the haul:
The prices for the ceramics were very reasonable for the quality of craftsmanship and I just loved that picture.
Yesterday the weather got rainy & colder so we just came home. I’ll get some pictures of the park up later.

Hello! Long time no type at y’all, I know. Sorry. Not much has been happening with me. I go to work and come home again, work on my crochet. Lather, rinse, repeat. This week I’m on vacation though. WOOT!
Today I drove up to a hotel just outside of the park and tomorrowm I’ll be taking in the sights and hopefully get some good pictures. Here’s the scene from my porch:
There are some interesting shops around here too!
