Freeform Foray

Working on some more scrumbles...
In my favorite medium thread and size 7 steel.
It is fun playing with shapes be different types of stitches...

Joining the club

Last week Tuesday, I joined the...
broken phone club, the elite group of accidental people.

 I had my phone in my jacket pocket and thought I zipped it closed.  As I put on my jacket, I heard that distinct phone falling to the floor sound.  

My first thought was well I have to get a new one.  Even though it still works,  I don't want to cut my finger on shards of glass.  First, I added some shipping tape to protect myself from shards. 
 Then I checked my phone contract which expires next February.  Back when we bought our discounted ($50 and $1) smart phones with a 2-year contract we added insurance.  For each phone we pay our inexpensive $8 monthly premiums.  So today, I started to make a claim, enter in all my info, and if I pay a $200 deductible, they will send me another iphone.  Do you think I am going to pay that deductible?
My common sense tells me absolutely no way!  Now I am wondering why pay insurance with deductible I can't afford.  I can live with my broken phone until February.  I just hope there are no dues for the broken phone club.

Celebrating our Veterans

Thank you to all our Veteran's!  
For everyone who has served and sacrificed through military service.  

I am especially thankful to my Dad (Vietnam), my Grandpa G (WWII), and
 my sister-in-law Katie (Navy).

On the run

Last week and this week have me on the run.  Going from one job to the other with a quick stop home to let...
Elvie outside.  

Trying to fit in a quick post while eating breakfast, getting Orla ready for school and myself for work.  My time is limited for fun things like pattern writing and blog posts, but everyday I fit in time for Crochet.

Over the weekend, I put all the flowers I have designed on paper in a way...
so far I have 57 flowers and counting...
