Well another weekend bites the dust! It seemed like the weekend went by really quickly. I got to work production on a comedy show on Saturday at a casino that we hadn't worked at for a while. Its not very often that I work a show that my husband doesn't work with me so its was a bit different. Its always a better show when we get to work together, maybe the worse part of not working together for this show was the 2 1/2 hour car ride alone and then another 2 1/2 hour car ride home after working a 12 hour day. The crew I was working the show with are super fun guys so it was a pretty good day.
Sunday was a pretty
lazy day because the hubby also had to work a show alone Saturday night
so we both got home really late. I got in a little bit of yard work
because it was the first nice day we have had for a while but other than
that we didn't get much accomplished.
Earlier in the week I had
decided I was just going to do another doily of the same pattern that I
had just completed. I had someone in mind that I was going to do the
first one for but since I am not super happy with that one I am going to
try it again. I am going to be brave and try to do this one with
several colors which means quite a few decisions. So far I have already
decided on the colors and which colors the first few row are going to
I also decided to tryout one of my new
shuttles. I had ordered an Handy Hands Aerlit shuttle which has a
crochet hook on one end and a removable bobbin awhile ago but I haven't
had a chance to try it out yet. This shuttle has good points and not so
good points. I really like the fact that I don't have to constantly
look for a separate crochet hook to do joins but the hook sometimes
tends to get in the way and it hooks itself on the thread when you least
want it to. I love the the fact that I don't have to unwind a shuttle
if it has the wrong color thread on it I can just change out the bobbin.
I ordered a set of extra bobbins so I think that will be an extra
bonus. The down side is I don't think the bobbins hold as much thread so
it seems I am having to add thread more often. I have tried to find
out how much thread each shuttle holds but I cant seem to find that info
out. I think I may have to do a little experiment to find out exactly
how much each holds so I will know in the future.
