Hi, I am revitalizing this site, it is obvious I am lazy at writing recipes, well I tend to eat them and then remember I need to take photos, lol.
Circumstances have changed for me recently, I am housebound due to a bad accident which involved falling off a ladder while hanging curtains. I damaged both knees quite badly and am confined to the lazy–boy or crutches for the time being. I have physio etc usually in the mornings or a home help comes in etc. But the afternoons and evening are very long. In the spirit of making a silk purse out of a sows ear I decided to get cracking on all the crochet and art projects I keep putting off because of lack of time. So Alice and Phylis is going to be my diary of my progress and hopefully by the time I am on my feet again the blogging habit is ingrained!
I downloaded one afghan cal from Ravelry that I had an eye on and got sucked into a cal that was previous to that, similar design that would make a pair in my lounge. Both in cotton from my stash even if one is aran thickness and the other is dk thickness.
I got stuck in and unfortunately I finished the 1st clue with two days and had to wait a week for the next part! So that’s how the second afghan got started, same again! So a third cal got started…. yes same again! So I decided to go with it and have made a time table, a different project a day, it seems that cal parts are usually involving up to 4 hours of work.
Here is my time table
Monday – Lilliana Cal
Tuesday – Atlantis Cal
Wednesday – Mandilla Madness
Thursday – small projects i.e washcloths, toys etc
Friday – Amanzi Cal
Saturday – Off
Sunday – Last Dance Cal
As of today Saturday 21st Oct this is where I am at with the different projects.
The Lilliana Cal –
I have just started Part 4 which was released last night, tut! that’s for Monday, lol.
The Atlantis Cal
I have nearly finished Part 2, here is a photo of it at the end of Part 1.
Have just finished Part 1
Photo to come
I have been making toys and washcloths to sell and for charity.
Here is a selection of toys I have made recently.
I only started this yesterday and haven’t finished Part 1 wihic is rather large as it is the central block athat is about 18 inches. So, I am giving myself 3 weeks for that as it rather complicated Part 3 came out today , but I see these are somewhat smaller, so I just might catch up.
The Last Dance Cal.
I am following this as a cal on a ravelry group I belong to. We are up to Part three, I have done part 1 and 2 and half way through Part 3, part 4 starts on Monday.
There you have it!
I will post every days progress and there I will give out more detailed information about the projects. What about your art projects, I hear you say, I am posting my progress with them on my art blog Rainbow Splashes every Friday.
See you tomorrow with my last dance cal.
