On my trip to Michael's on Monday I discovered that a craft open house was scheduled for today. If I booked classes today I would get a discount on the class and a discount on supplies. Finally I was going to learn to crochet.
I spent my bus ride dreaming of the yarn I would pick for my first crocheting project. I kept debating whether I would crochet a scarf or if there was an alternative for a complete beginner.
When I arrived at Michael's there was a table near the entrance for all of the craft instructors. There was jewelry displayed, cake decorating supplies and cards, but there was no yarn. I asked one of the women sitting at the table where the crochet teacher was and was told that there were two of them and neither had arrived, even though the event had begun an hour before. I didn't want to register without asking a few questions and while I waited for the instructor I made a quick change in plans. I was going to take a different class. The nice woman I had chatted with was teaching card making and I certainly could use a refresher course in that topic. I signed up for "Card Tricks in a Flash," and I have high hopes for this years Valentines. The jewelry looked good, too, but that will have to wait for another time.
Instead of yarn I have this to look forward to...
...and I think I'll add a pretty in pink scissor, too.
I really need the pink striped model. Really!
I came to crochet and I departed a card maker. I'm excited about my card making class and I'm already dreaming of the cute cards to come.
I arrived in time to be early for my Bible study group this afternoon and enjoyed the conversation and the study. We are slowly making our way through Ecclesiastes and feel so grateful to be part of the group. I walked most of the way home in sixty degree weather, which felt like spring. Very unseasonable, but so nice after our arctic conditions earlier in the week.
So enjoyed being part of Pink Saturday. Please stop by and meet some great bloggers. As always, thanks for visiting and take good care!
