Five Things Friday

I’m frequently amazed how much my mood is changed by the weather, the sun came out, the temperatures rose and life is good.  I have friends from college visiting for the weekend and I’m really looking forward to a fun three days of hanging out and exploring the area.  Hopefully we’ll get to several restaurants on my list, plus some museums and parks!

This week was a productive one:

1.)  Last Saturday I built a shelf to hold all of my craft supplies!  I’ve been spending the week admiring it and filling it with all the random items that didn’t have a home.  Plus I realized that the white shelf abutting a white wall makes a perfect photo background, although I’ll still use my pillowcase sometimes since I like the texture.

2.) I finally started (and finished!) the entrelac bag that I’ve been planning for ages.

3.) I thought I would try out single crochet entrelac using some undyed cotton yarn, but quickly realized I didn’t have enough for the project I envisioned.  The piece became doubly educational since I figured out how to do single crochet entrelac and how to add triangles to the squares.  I’ll do a full post on that for Monday.

4.) I listed sets of coasters and placemats on etsy that are pretty in pink, bright for summer and reminiscent of watermelon!

5.) Yesterday I spent a couple hours sitting outside, sipping iced chai and eating a muffin while chatting with a friend.  I suffered the consequences of extended exposure to pollen today but it was most definitely worth it.

    Totally love the color on the shelf! It “pops!”

      Thanks for stopping by! I was really happy with the colors even though they weren’t the original ones planned.
