I Finished It!! -- But I Can't Show You :-(

So... a tornado (the second one in my lifetime) ripped thru my town yesterday. Trees and telephone poles are all over my (normally) quiet and shady street. We are fine-- no worries there. Aside from being too hot, the only real damage we took was my boyfriend's car window was blown out by a falling tree limb. The interior was soaked and the window is totally gone but we are healthy and that is what is important.

This, of course, means that I cannot upload my pictures to my computer to show you my beautiful, finished steering wheel cover. I will, though. I promise! I will include the two sites where I found instructions to make one plus my own personal changes to the pattern. As you can see above, I made a pieced top of pinks and blacks to match my car named Hansel. 
More on all of that later as well.

Almost Finished

I have been working on projects for swaps that I joined--- so I can't post any of them until people get their gifts. I don't want to ruin the surprise for anyone but I am getting really antsy.

This past week I gave my final presentation for to get my second Master's degree. This one is a Masters of the Arts in Strategic Leadership at Neumann University. This coming Wesnesday is my exit interview and I will have graduated again for the 4th time!

I am excited to get back all that time I have been spending on presentations, papers, and research for crafting fun. Oh, what luxury time can be...

Back from the Hideaway

Just got back home from another cropper's weekend at the Hamburg Hideaway. It was a ton of fun, I hope to upload what I worked on when I was there... later.  I am so tired now I can barely type. I rarely sleep at the crops-- too much stuff to work on!

Sometimes I Fear I Am Overzealous

Cheers to the Great Owl Crochet Along!

It is not to late to join, people! If you want to be in the swap, you have to have your package in by June 30th. Trust me-- you have time. Each of these took me 2 hockey games to complete. :-) For "normal" people, you only have to crochet one to join the swap. Now I am trying to figure out what else I want to put in my swap package and get that puppy in the mail. Can you tell I am excited?
