I Think I'll Call It...UGH!
One day I saw a beautiful photo of UGH!, attached to it's mama, on the blog Alittlesprite, and I fell in love!
The pattern was written simply...exquisitely. I could see she put so much time into making it easy to read. And everything went great....until....time to make what I fondly named...UGH! The handle.
I read the pattern over and over...and over and over...and over some more. But, as there were no photos of the handle part up close, I couldn't figure out how to attach it! This is when I decided to name it! Grrrr!...And this is also where I decided that it didn't matter where the handle was attached....I wanted to be DONE with it....NOW!!!!
So, UGH! was put in the place that I thought it would best be used...if I ever want to look at it again, that is!! LOL
Well, not exactly the end...yet! On this blog the end sometimes comes with music. But always comes with a poem...Have a good weekend Everybody!!! :-)
Blankets Of Love
I make blankets, in my own time;
putting love in every stitch;
I let no one rush the process;
I'm not concerned with getting rich.
Crocheting brings about a calm
that nothing else quite seems to do;
I get such joy from choosing patterns,
and from choosing colors, too.
The more intricate-the better;
that gives me much more time to think,
'cause I slow down, so I can read it
keeping brain cells in the pink.
Just the steady, jutting motion
of my needle's in and out
makes me remember who its for,
and what the pattern's all about.
I made a blanket for my sister,
with kittens crocheted all around;
and another one, for Tammy,
with her name written up and down.
I made a special one last year.
(made lovingly-to give away)
It marked the 20 years of love
that we remembered on that day.
We threw a party for our friends;
We had good food, and dancing too;
and on the blanket, it was written:
'Roses are red, violets are blue'.
That was a special blanket;
but special is always what I say
'cause I put the time into them
so that they won't easily fray.
They are blankets made with love
that I'm proud of-from 'chain one';
To watch the faces of receivers
is, without doubt, half the fun.
So-if I ever make a blanket
for your anniversary,
or your wedding, or engagement,
here's the thought you'll have from me:
That 'I love you very much,
and making it was fun to do;'
and that 'with every single stitch
my every thought had been of you!'
