Crocodile stitch bag

I wanted to learn to crochet Crocodile stitch, so I went on YouTube and found a tutorial on a bag I liked and went for it. Found the strap on another tutorial and added that one to the bag instead.

First I used this video to learn how to do this and get the general idea.

For the bag I used this video
(did one alteration to the base of the bag, to make it match, I did 1 DC in one of the 7 stitches at the end and 2 DC in the rest of them on each side).

Then for the strap I used this video, it begins at 25 min and 50 sec.

Attacked by a window

Attacked by a window at work…
Was going to close the window but the mechanism that it was attached to broke, the window did not fall off, it crashed towards the building and my forearm got stuck in between.
It hurt!
The feeling in my little finger is not quit right, has this strange tingling sensation sometimes and around my elbow at times… and it hurts! But other than that it is fine.

Day 1.

Cute crochet bookmarks

I found a website with these cute bookmarks…
I did want to learn how to crochet flowers and of course you can never have too few bookmarks, so it was perfect to try this out.

Few more FNoF amigurimi!

So, here are few more five nights at Freddy’s amigurimi, Foxy and Chica, both boys were happy with them.
It is so much fun and wonderful feeling to make these for my boys and see them be so happy with them and also coming with more requests for stuff for me to make for them… It is kinda fun!

Ran out of blue textile marker but my son used one of his blue markers to finish it off…

More Crochet, this time FnaF amigurumi!

So as I have mentioned,  my boys asked me to make five nights at Freddy’s teddy bears for them, so I decided to learn to crochet.

I used Youtube videos to learn and then I found this pattern for these FnaF teddy bear/amigurimi.

It was much easier than I thought it would be even as I had to use youtube a few times to see what I was suppose to do, (did not know/understand all the abbreviations in the pattern).

 

         

 

I am VERY happy with the result… and off to do the next one, FnaF Bunny, so both boys have one made by Mamma (mamma=mom).

Learning to crochet

So I decided to learn to crochet, my boys asked me to make five nights at Freddy’s teddy bears for them.

That required me to learn how to crochet, so I went for it!!!

 

Practice… practice makes perfect or something close to it…

 

Tying out this amigurumi, to prepare for making the teddy’s, it went fine, not perfect but gave me an idea how to do this and what to watch out for as I go for the next project.

Using this Video to make it!

Knitting the Ærmeling

So I took on the knitting project, ærmelingit was fun, and went better than I expected it would with only 3 years of knitting experience.

 

This part was SO much work….

My first time changing colors…. was fun and I learned a few new things….

I learned this is a lot of work and takes time!!!

 

The final product… I am so happy with my Ærmeling, I will most likely make few more as these are just so cute and fun!!!

Hard work…

Loosing those extra kilograms is hard work and finally, the weight began going down, 80,6 kg. I am getting there, slowly, now, but I just have to keep up with the hard work involved to get to my final goal.

It is not easy, sometimes I really have to rein myself in and remind myself, that the amount of workout I have to do just to eat some delicious thing is not what I actually want to do, as I HATE workouts. I do not deny myself anything, I just choose to say ‘no’ to those things more often than not… but potato’s are very hard for me to say no to, and I don’t, but I have to control the amount I allow myself to eat.

I have changed the way I eat and what I eat and over time it has become much easier than I would have expected. Now I get disappointed if I can not have veggies or salad as part of my dinner.

To make this happen, it required me to make the decision, that NOW, I was going to do this and be selfish, take the time to exercise, to require salad to be big part of the dinner table and the budget. To ask my family to support me and for understanding as I allow myself to be selfish so that I can work hard on making this change.
