TTMT #370 - Keepin' It Short


A note for anyone that pre-ordered 100 Blocks: I talked to the publisher on the phone yesterday and there was a mistake on their end holding up my magazine order. They are NOW on the way and I'll be including a little thank you with your order to thank you for your patience. :)

You sure pack a lot into a short time. Being from the south, I couldn't talk that fast if you paid me. Well, it depends on how much you were willing to pay.

Good deal on the fleece! Your Linus blankets are very cute.

Have a great week with your kids!

I hope your foot surgery goes well and your doctor is as good at crafting as you are.

YAY for the magazine coming soon!!

I tend to be on fast forward most of the time! I also edit out the "ums" and that makes my videos much, much shorter!

I love having both of my kids home at the same time. It is lovely. :)

Thank you for the well wishes. The biggest challenge is going to be sitting still.

Those magazines! I will be VERY pleased when they are finally here!

Makes me so happy to see that flannel being put to good use. :) Those fleece prints are cute, too.

Surgery...yikes. Sending good thoughts your way that it goes well. Hope it's nothing too very extensive. Will it affect your trip to England later?

I used all but a few scraps of the flannel! It washed up nice & soft, too. :)

Thank you for the good thoughts. I don't mind explaining to y'all, but I didn't want to spend too much time on it in the video. I have to have a complete joint replacement in the big toe of my right foot. The cartilage is gone, so the bones are rubbing together and I now have a floating bone chip. It was the pain from that which caused me to go to the doctor. I didn't have a clue it was so serious until I saw the X-ray. A weekend to think about it and I think I'm starting to wrap my mind around the idea. It will hopefully not affect our trip, but we bought trip insurance (my idea, thank goodness!!), so worst case scenario, we'll can delay it for a bit without losing any money or anything.

I love what you did with the fleece. I still have one or two smaller remnants left, and then the others I have a actually pretty good sized, maybe a yard, yard and a half, so I still need to decide if I'm going to crochet around those or something else. I'm not feeling the crochet mojo these days. Not sure why, maybe because it's so hot.

Enjooy the family time, I know it's seems to get more and more fleeting.Time just keeps marching on, darnit!

I got really excited when I saw the solid fleece because I've been wanting to try that! Next time, I'll use a bigger design or more than one, but still, I like it. :)

Now that I have yarn to crochet, I haven't done it at all. You'd think I'd want to with all the sitting, but not so much.

Time is FLYING at the moment.

hope the foot surgery goes well

we had a good sale on clearance stuff at my local craft store too. I want to go back and get some more but i'm avoiding going outside as much as possible until my asthma is better

You sounds like you have a lot of stuff to get through at the moment - good luck with it all

There is some good stuff going on, it's helping to keep me focused.

I do hope your asthma improves. I saw on FB that you're not doing well. Good thoughts and lots of hugs!!

I'm housebound at the moment so i'm not exposing my lungs to cold air. I'm not even going upstairs where my sewing is as it's colder there. hopefully i'll be better soon

Sorry to hear that you will be having foot surgery. The fleece blankets are so cute! I love that star fish.

Thanks, dear!

I will manage, but it's not fun to have to slow down!
