grandma dream camp

crochet baby blanket

here i go :)
off to the wonderful world of seattle to what mr.handsome likes to call "grandma dream camp" or better known as: the Dottie Angel workshop. Ahh that mister handsome... he does have a sense of humor. I remember back in early may i saw the announcement for this super amazing workshop by the wonderful Tif of Dottie Angel. I knew I wanted to go. And thankfully... I convinced mr.handsome that I NEEDED to go. like now. like 4 months ago. i wanted to open my eyes to vintage + crochet + sewing = love.

hi. i'm a nerd. grandma stuff is cool to me. and sadly i'm getting a little absent minded. let me explain. i accidentally threw out a whole bag of amazing vintage doilies and all my crochet hooks. yes. indeedy. i did. i kept thinking dangit debee! you dork! (yes. i yell at myself). heck i cried. i was so broken hearted just thinking about my little bag of goodness god knows where laying there all loveless thinking if they did something wrong to deserve being dumped.
oh how i want to rescue my little bag of goodness. I almost didn't allow myself to give up looking. I was getting so frustrated. i had a blanket to finish dangit. ( the blanket pictured above in the birth stage of a baby blanket :)

oh. joy. you are so funny.

alas. back to my travels. yes. i just finished packing Nena. She's not so happy with yarn stuffed up her nose and vintage pillowcases shoved in all directions. but i'm on a mission to enjoy a much needed me time. my grandma time. i really want to be a grandma. crochet.knit.sew. and mister handsome thinks it's like fantasy football or something so I have been hearing jokes about it for the past 4 months. real charmer that man :P

i love vacations that have been payed for since forever ago. seems like it's free now, especially since we wouldn't be able to afford it now. can you say perfect timing?! yay yay!

we will crochet our little hearts out
we will sew like nobody's business
and create whatever our little creative minds & hearts wish to create.
i . cannot. wait.

( i will be back to show you my finished blanket- it's soooooo cute!)
grandma's are So cool :)

Aww..I'm sorry about your bag of goodness. Maybe it was a way to make room for even more goodness in your life. Would that be betterness? LOL *I made a funny*

Debee, I believe that someone else needed your goodies. Needed them very badly, it seems. There will be more treasure in store for you, I know it! Have fun and I can't wait to see what you make! Besos, Wanda
