on the hook. off the hook?

I finally decided to attempt the Turkish slippers form Simple Crochet by Erika Knight. I rarely attempt to follow patterns only because I usually have to re-read the same information several times while flipping back to the section that tells you which stitch the abbreviation stands for ...THEN I have to flip to the stitch section of the book to remind myself how to do that particular stitch. But to my surprise I managed to work them up fairly quickly, making adaptations for how I wanted them to fit my feet along the way. Now to finish them off.

recent purchase/creation & 11.15.07

I bought the components at a flea market I visited recently.

It hangs in our tiny entry. I love it. More of what I bought once I tidy up a bit. Ugh, so much to do. How the heck can I finish projects when I have to clean??? Unfortunately my "studio" is also the computer room & guest room, so part of the cleaning IS the numerous projects I have in various stages of completion strewn about the living room. I know...I need a bigger house. Wish me luck.

Oh! As if everyone doesn't know already, 2 people who's talent & creativity I envy are on National television TOGETHER today. Anna Maria Horner & Martha! Alas, I'll have to catch it in and all. Phooey. Don't tell me what happens, I want to be surprised.
