7 Quick Takes on Easter Friday

ONE The lack of posts this week is because I haven't been feeling great.  I'm still hoping that Catherine and Peter don't catch it.  Catherine is going to be especially happy that I'm feeling better this morning--the last couple of days have been pretty boring for her.

TWO  I desperately need to finish up all of the projects that I have started for the craft fair.  I seriously have about twenty crocheted things that I need to weave in the ends.  I am not sure why I always put that step off until the last second, but I do it all the time.  (Have you see my latest creation?  I am pretty happy with it!)

THREE I've had Super Stitches Crochet sitting in my Amazon cart for about a month now.  As a book sale and library junkie I keep hesitating on actually purchasing the book.  I think that I will cash in some of my Swagbucks (I told you about them here) and get it for myself as an Easter gift.  It really is an awesome book--I've checked it out of the library multiple times.  I love that it isn't a project book (ie, how to make a this sweater, or how to make that afghan, or how to make this particular thing) it is a pattern book (just blocks of stitches).  I think that it is an excellent resource and I will refer back to it often (so it is totally worth the $8 bucks).

FOUR Here's a couple of picture of my darling girl on Easter:

FIVE When I am on Facebook and I see an update "So and So read Such and Such Article" and it has a link to the article I HATE when it wants me to agree to a Facebook app and it doesn't just take me to the article.  Seriously annoying.  Speaking of Facebook, this awesome photo has been shared quite a bit recently.  I think it is worth sharing here as well!

Original Source, I think.

SIX  I've heard two quotes that I love recently.  Ok, they are from the t.v. shows that I've been watching while I've been lying on the couch sick.

"You know what the issue is with this world?  Everyone wants some magical solution to their problems and everyone refuses to believe in magic."  Mad Hatter from Once Upon a Time

"To sin by silence when we should protest makes cowards of men." Kate from Castle--but I missed where she got it from

SEVEN I've noticed that just about all the recipes that I've "Pinned" are for desserts.  I just might have a sweet tooth.

  1. The article thing with Facebook annoys me too. I usually just go to the news source and google the story because I hate dealing with the app requests.

    1. I'm glad that I'm not the only one! Yeah, that's pretty much what I do too. Although I don't bother with at least half of the stories that I click on originally.


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment! I love reading each and every one!
