First Crochet Projects Completed

I know it's been a while since I blogged, I've been extremely busy at work preparing for hearings back to back. Ordra and her mother did make it back by my house for a follow up crochet lesson weekend before last. It was a very relaxed afternoon. I was so pleasantly surprised when I saw the work they had both put into their projects. They had learned so much about going to the end of the rows and tension, their stitches had gotten so uniform, I knew they had both gotten into a flow. Ms. Smith, through trial and error, had learned how to decrease and made a really innovative stair step design to the front flap of her purse. I taught them how to sew up the seams and we made a very long chain stitch using 3 strands of yarn and weaved them through the purses. They (including my fiance) were very excited to put the purses in the washer. They were amazed at how quickly the size and texture completely changed. Ordra's bag was really cool and had a sort of 70's vibe in my opinion. I loved her choice of colors. She laughed at her photo and jokingly said not to use her photo, but just to be careful, I'll just show you her bag. (I know how I'd feel, I rarely ecen post photos of myself here). The mystery project is still sitting in a chair. I'll finish it up I promise, but the pay-per-view fight is tomorrow and I'll have a housefull. But soon.
