Quick post for those who were asking about the cardigan pattern. #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #atchezdepre #keepingitreal #evansvilleishome #allfiberarts #crochet

On the last row! Then the border on two sides and this Corner to Corner Shawl (pattern can be found on Ravelry) will be done. And yes I am contemplating casting on another one (maybe tomorrow) for someone special. #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #atchezdepre #keepingitreal #evansvilleishome #allfiberarts #crochet

Just back from a field trip with Paul. We went to the Meijer store for this weeks shopping....meh. Aldi's still has me. Next week Schnuck's. I did get this done this afternoon. I am loving the ombre effect of this yarn. This cardigan is crocheted in one piece, sleeve to sleeve, so that ombre will be nice. I will share the pattern info tomorrow...we are tucking in early tonight...hopefully the phone doesn't ring. Good Night - Sweet Dreams #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #atchezdepre #keepingitreal #evansvilleishome #allfiberarts #crochet

How to you fight project boredom? When you just want to keep pushing thru so you can reach the finish? In this case I gently pull out a "small skein" from the larger cake and tell myself - just get thru this yarn and you can cast on the Montreal Jacket pattern you found yesterday on Ravelry. Then I will bounce back and forth with equal time spent on each project til the shawl is done. #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #allfiberarts #crochet #atchezdepre #keepingitreal #evansvilleishome

Worked the phone this morning and got several more things done on my list. Most important is I found a new Veterinarian for The Crew. One that is close to the new house, is accepting new patients (I had a list of 6 vets and half weren't accepting new patients due to covaid) and after June 1 we will be able to go in with The Crew for their visit. Bruce is in need of his annual check-up and shots. And there is no way I would just hand him over to a new doctor for this and wait in the parking lot. So I am happy this won't be the case. And we are down to ONE piece of paperwork needed on our new home and closing can be scheduled. Nothing to do but wait as it is the title and so we are at the mercy of the title company. Home sales are booming here so it may take awhile ...or not...fingers crossed. I think I will crochet a bit and then nap. The sleeping is wonderful I must say. I fall asleep so easily and so relaxed. It most definitely is what my body needed. #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #atchezdepre #keepingitreal #evansvilleishome #allfiberarts #crochet

Working on Emie's shawl. ...and loving this rug in our apartment. I think I will be making one of these for the kitchen area between the sink and stove! Has anyone made one of these rugs? #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #keepingitreal #atchezdepre #crochet #allfiberarts

Paul went on a quick tour of the house and reports back that a solid 40-50% is packed. The Crew went for a walk and is back asleep next to me. Working on Emie's shawl. #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #keepingitreal #atchezdepre #evansvilleherewecome #crochet #allfiberarts #packingthehouseday

While waiting for Paul I am going to finish up my shawl. Two more rows and then the edging and it will be done. It will be perfect for porch sitting in the late Summer/early Fall. #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #keepingitreal #atchezdepre #crochet #allfiberarts #DeuxDoxieSnap #BruceDoxieLove #dachshund #doxie #brucegingerdoxielove #shortlegsbigheart #bruceandginger #thebruceandgingershow

Well is it a good thing or a bad thing when you finish all the "work" items on your to-do list by 9:30am. I did have a crochet to-do added to my list. A dear someone asked for a scarf. So I think I will get that done and shift then to hand piecing by mid afternoon. Started "Win the Wilderness" on Netflix- my apologies I can't remember who suggested it- so that will happen while I hook & stitch. (Yes even the fabric packing in the studio is done...and I did one quarter of the FQ wall before I stopped myself....lol) #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #crochet #allfiberarts #keepingitreal #atchezdepre

Put in two hours in the studio doing some light packing. Going to just do a few hours every day. No need to rush. Made some late lunch and then I am going to rewatch (because I fell asleep during the last 2 episodes) Bosch and work on this crocheted Bobble Stitch pillow for the new house. I finished up my skein on the shawl and want it to be bigger so I have another skein on the way. I'll probably finish that up later next month. I also plan to lay out the fabric orientation for the 3rd row of block kits for the Ring Toss quilt and take pictures for easy reference when I start to work on them. And that is the excitement happening here at Chez Depre today...lol. #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #atchezdepre #keepingitreal #evansvilleherewecome #crochet #allfiberarts

We are exhausted. All the papers have been signed. Our house is officially for sale. The backyard is looking beautiful (12 more bags of mulch today) and we are exhausted. We have decided the next few hours are "Bosch Time" and maybe later we may take out a shelving unit that is not moving with us. We will post it's availability (free) on our neighborhood page and hopefully it will have a new home soon. I am going to work on the shawl. Too tired to walk downstairs to get another Ring Toss block ....lol. #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #crochet #allfiberarts #keepingitreal #atchezdepre #evansvilleherewecome

Progress Pic! And just so you know I am piecing another Ring Toss Block also. Every hour I switch projects. #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #atchezdepre #keepingitreal #crochet #allfiberarts

A few days ago I spent some time on Ravelry tracking down some patterns (knit or crochet) for the Lion Brand Cupcake yarn cakes I bought. These are DK weight (light 3) and 590 yards each. Long five color cakes of yummy yarn. Just like the hats I wanted a super simply mind zen pattern. Something to just pick up and not have to truly keep track of rows/stitch design. I found this Corner to Corner Shawl pattern by Nurturing Fibres. I am liking it. We will all see how big it will be at the end. #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #atchezdepre #keepingitreal #crochet #allfiberarts

I am free from the office....for a few days! I did make a hat yesterday. I put another skein of the same yarn (different color) here in the picture for those who want the yarn info. I love this yarn. So soft and bouncy. And it has some weight to it. I see a blanket in my future. But that will happen when we are in our new home. Right now I see some quiet time at my table. Maybe I will queue up an audiobook, podcast or music. It may be I will just sit quietly for a bit and enjoy my puzzle. I have gone thru 60-70% of the puzzles that were in the house since March 8th. I am now firmly in the 500s with a few 750s rounding the bend. I am going to save the 1000s for Evansville. That is my hope...to be in Evansville before I hit the 1000s. Fingers crossed as I am optimistic. #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #iluv2jigsaw #jigsawpuzzle #onemorepiece #zenjiggin #crochet #allfiberarts #keepingitreal #atchezdepre

Remember my saying my yarn stash was pretty small. Well there may of been some anxiety yarn shopping about 18 days ago. The box(es - look away Paul) arrived several days ago and have sat in quarantine in the laundry room. I'm good for yarn thru the summer. Maybe :) #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #atchezdepre #keepingitreal #crochet #allfiberarts

There are going to be quite a few of these colored hats. Ginger has decided to watch intently again in the hope of getting the hang of crochet. Now I almost feel guilty if I switch back to knitting today which was my plan. Looks like my bank jumped ahead of the news we all know is coming with their email this morning saying they are restructuring their hours of operation based on the recent developments to the Illinois Stay-At-Home order. #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #atchezdepre #keepingitreal #crochet #allfiberarts

Good Mornin' Again! The Crew met me with smiles at 9:20am sitting at the side of the bed. I am going to start this morning with some coffee and crochet. This hat is for me. I bought this yarn 2 years ago right after Molly crossed the rainbow bridge. I was teaching at the Stitches Midwest show and a vendor who dyed yarn had this. It was named Molly Rocks. It was kismet. Made Paul and I each a pair of mitts. Found the remainder ball and realized I may have enough to make this hat. Another Crystal/Bag-O-Day pattern you can find on Etsy. See 2nd pic. So this morning a game of yarn chicken...let's see if I indeed have enough yarn. #mickeydepre  #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #atchezdepre #keepingitreal #crochet #allfiberarts

Well I have been crazy busy this morning .... so I could veg and crochet and hand piece this afternoon. Office list for today completed, a tiny bit of yard work - just wanted to get one thing done before the rain shows up. Chicken is in the oven and pork chops will follow. And now it is time for some feet up. Yes another hat. If you only knew how many hats. Might flip back to mitts for awhile. Lots of leftover hat yarn to use there. The giveaway/donation bin is going to be quite full. And that is a super positive to all of this. #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #atchezdepre #keepingitreal #crochet #allfiberarts

My afternoon. Today this scarf will go to the "done" bin. Beneath the fleece blanket are 2 doxies who are not moving. I may nap sitting up! 🤣😴😴😴 #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #atchezdepre #keepingitreal #allfiberarts #crochet

There has been some sewing (update pics tomorrow) and some crochet. Another hat for the donation/giveaway pile. It's been a good day. Off to read and then dreamland. #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #allfiberarts #crochet

My phone is starting to squawk with weather heads-up! alerts. So I think this is my plan for the rest of the day. This will be a "2 cake/skein" scarf. (There will be quite the number to giveaway/donate later this year) And Ring Toss Block #11! #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #zensewing #slowsewing #RingTossQuiltBlock #crochet #allfiberarts

Hello Everyone! Ahhhh sleep. And so much better when Bruce decides to be a neck muff and Ginger curls into your front side for a hug. ...who's Paul again??.....lol. (That's humor people) But truly the 3 of us have a sleep arrangement now ...hahaha. Here is the scarf that I finished in the wee hours of the morn. Let's spend sometime together tomorrow...around 10ish CT and I will walk you thru the crochet stitch for the scarf and tell you where to find the hat pattern etc. I'll start another scarf tonight so I will have something to demo on during the live. Sound good? #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #atchezdepre #keepingitreal #allfiberarts #crochet

And we are home. And this chick is staying put for the next week or so. I am pretty worn out and just need some low key days. While out and about groceries were obtained and a quick stop at Hobby Lobby added these to my stash. That multicolored skein is the same yarn as the scarf I made last weekend. Going to make a hat and mitts to match...and may even make the scarf longer with the remaining yarn. The other skeins are my mismatched coffee set. Hats & Mitts will happen. I like things mismatched at times. Tomorrow I will work some more on Ring Toss blocks kits. But today I just need to veg. #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #allfiberarts #atchezdepre #keepingitreal

Scarf was finished on the ride home. One skein of the Roll with It by Red Heart (389 yds) in the Catwalk colorway. I bought mine at Hobby Lobby (I believe next week is 30% all yarn off week....but check...it is every other week). The stitch is #58 Fantastic out of the book shown. I think I will get a second cake and make a hat and mitts to match. #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #ilove2crochet #futuregifts #allfiberarts #crochet

The scarf yarn is Roll With It by Red Heart. It is so soft and squishy. I knew this multicolr yarn needed a repeative dense stitch to let the coloring sing. I own a crochet stitch dictionary and this stitch is called Fantastic. I will post a pic of the book when I get home. And I will be home tomorrow. We are cutting our visit short by one day so we can get home before the snowstorm hits. And to do so means we will be rolling out of Evansville and heading to Michigan to get the crew by 5am. So sweet dreams everyone...this chick is heading to bed. #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #atchezdepre #keepingitreal #ilove2crochet #allfiberarts

I ran out of time to kit up any Ring Toss Quilt Blocks so just grabbed this skein of yarn for the trip. No crochet happened on the drive down due to the hour/darkness....but I am making up for that now. A scarf is born. #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #ilove2crochet #allfiberarts

And because I have ZERO attention span it seems today....or I am excited about this soft yummy velour yarn... A bobble pillow has also been started. I need to head to the office. LOL #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #atchezdepre #keepingitreal #crochet #allfiberarts #ilove2crochet

While in the studio working on step out pics for the Double Basket quilt block blogs I also went looking for my cable carry stick for knitting. That reflective forest green yarn from Hobbii is going to be a cabled hat for Paul Sr. Or a crocheted beanie for him. Still deciding...anyway...squirrel...lol. I found this note card and these stitch markers I made at least 15 yrs ago. If your a board gamer you recognize the "meeples" and that index card is the design repeat on Monkey Socks by Cookie A that I made constantly while traveling for two years. ....now back to the Double Basket Quilt Block work. #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #atchezdepre #keepingitreal #quiltknitcrochet #fabricandfiberforever #fiberforever #allfiberarts

Tonight my goal is to finish up the mitts I am making for Tommy. He is our neighbor who is the HVAC guy who fixed our furnace on Sunday. I want to put these on his windshield for him to find in the morning when he is out to work. Just in time for the winter storm that is possibly on it's way for us. #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #Ilove2knit #mittmania #allfiberarts
