crafty waiting room

crafty waiting room, originally uploaded by summer pickles.

so... what does one do when one is thirty-seven weeks pregnant and spending inordinate amounts of time in waiting rooms???

turn the waiting room into craft central with crochet crochet and more crochet!

thanks to obstetricians delivering babies, gestational diabetes tests, gps running behind schedule, the baby blanket is now completed. once bub has arrived i will post a photo of bub with blanket, but in the meantime, i hope you will appreciiate my public crafting efforts!

amazing how many comments i received (and funny looks, i might add), crafting in public. and loads of compliments from the baby boomer plus generations who were thrilled to see some of the old crafting arts had not died...

ah crochet, i think i may be falling in love with you...

I was wondering how you were going... Glad to see you... LOL - once you have a couple of small people waiting rooms become part of the social calender - so always have some sort of craft tucked into your bag... Yes people do strike up conversations when you are doing something like that... I wish I could crochet :( - a crochet hook, yarn and I just don't 'get it' together...Stay well and rested for the weeks ahead... Love and hugs...xoxoxo

I love to crochet too. I taught myself two winters ago and marvel at how much you can get done in a short space of time. Look forward to seeing the new baby in the baby banket
