A little bit back into my crafting. For those that read my last post I am still reading I have finished 2 books since my last post and plan to try to read these 2 books here this week. If you didn't know now you know I am a urban and fiction reader. I have been checking out my blogger friends blog. I see I am not the only one behind on my crocheting and sewing while I read. So now I don't feel guilty at all lol. :)
But, back to crafting. Only work I got done was a little crocheting. I have missed it a bit. I have been getting packages from Annie's Hook and Needle Kit Club for now 3 months. They send you yarn and a pattern that you can do. Loved this pattern I got this month. It was of a table runner. Very cute. I have been thinking about changing my dinning room colors but, didn't know what I wanted it to be so this gave me a good idea. Light and dark brown with a bit of green and blue. So I made this table runner here.
Also here is the little fringes at the end of the table runner.
This pattern worked up quick only need to know 2 bases steps and I went for it. Finished in about 1 hour and a half or so due to me chasing after my kids lol.:) Overall love how it looks.
Here is the picture of the table runner of the pattern. I didn't do all the rows that the pattern asked for because I didn't want it to wide because I wanted enough room on my table for the placemats that I have plans to do.
So here will be the colors I used for my dinning room. Have plans to do some placemats also.
Also my mom gave be a pretty green stand for the bathroom. Due that my bathroom colors are blue this helps me also to change my bathroom colors. So have plans to change it to blueish, green.
So I got started on some mats to go on the stand for a little of deco. Also have plans to crochet a couple of towels for my bathroom.
So far so good. Have my own kind of pattern I am following just winging it so afterwards you all will see the finish project.
WARNING IAM VENTING HERE
Other then that I am just trying to hang in there. Having a lot of issues with my cousin that lives with me. OMG I am so glad Nesa and Nellie have a long time before they are teens because I totally can't deal with this at times. Me and my cousin had a little falling out due that I said, that her boyfriend can't stay here. What I look like having my 16 year old cousin and her 16 year old boyfriend staying under my roof doing god only knowns what and she wants to have a hissy fit at me because he can't live here. She then wants to threaten to leave asking me can I get information about her going to a group home. So I got the information after the woman from the state told her that if she goes to a group home she wont never get to see her boyfriend. The woman said, that is a stupid reason to leave. The rules there are much worster then my rules. All I ask of her is 2 rules don't get pregnant so I made sure she got on the depo shot and the second rule is to go to school. Those are some simple rules. Now I didn't say her boyfriend can't come and visit but, after she talked to the woman from the state she then changed her mind and went to unpack. Also she know this from watching news that a teenage girl 15 years old homeless girl was raped and murder last week here where we live. What I don't understand is that she watched the news with me and said, that was sad but, she want to go out there and take that chance is what I don't understand.
I wanted to make sure she knew where I was coming from so I called up a friend of mines that is a counselor at a all boys group home things at the boys group home isn't no different then the all girls group home. He wanted to set her straight. So we went to his job. She then got to see that you don't have a room to yourself you will be sharing a room with about 3 to 4 other teenager girls. It maybe about 15 teenagers living there all at once. That you is most likely to end up fighting because there other teenagers come from some ruffer homes then she due and they are welling to protect what is there at no means. He let her know you can't eat when you want to you eat when everyone else eats. You can't come and go when you want to. You only leave to go to school but, if you in a group home where they teach you in the group home then you don't leave unless you live with the counselors. No company at all unless it is a family member. You can't be on the phone all times of the day. Or on the internet all day. There is only 1 TV and you have to watch what everybody else watch. You have to be in the bed by 9;30PM. You can't get a job unless you have a good grade point averge. He walked us though the group home and she just starts crying because she knew that if she went to a group home she wont have all the freedom that she have now. Dang teenagers. She stays with me she has her own room, phone, internet, cable, food she can eat when she is hungry her school is just 3 blocks from the house. I buy her all her personally things she needs clothes shoes and all. I told her you should be greatful that I am welling to take you into my home with my 2 kids and rise you like my own even though she is my little cousin.
She said, she is gratefully I said, I don't want you to say it I want you to prove to me you is gratefully by staying here and finishing schools and don't get pregnant. That is all I ask of her.
I asked my mom was I like that when I was a teen because if I was I am truely sorry. She said, I wasn't like that at all. I am like what the hell is happening to all these damn teenagers now days. They can't get they way they want to make everyone else feel guilty. Grrrrrrr.
Grr sorry had to vent there a little bit. But, that has been stressful. Me upset and crying hoping she don't make the wrong choice but, all I can do is hope and pray that she makes the right choice. I said, all I could say so I just have to sit back and wait.
But, that's all blog readers. Thanks for stopping by to here me go on and on about my crafts and my life. I can't believe that it will be 2 years in January that I have been blogging. WOW amazing how time flies by.:)
Everyone take care have a great weekend. I will totally try my damnest to do the same. Now got to go watch Spondebob Squarepants with Nellie and crochet lol.:)
