I am going to have to start a Support Group

I have neglected my family, my dogs, and I cannot concentrate at work, this drug is so powerful.
These habits need a stronger will than mine to be conquered. I need therapy and rehab. But it's not my fault...Blame the pusher!

That's right, you know who you are,,,finn!!!! (finn has a wonderful tutorial on her blog, she is so patient with us) You lured us into your trap so smoothly! You knew how addicting your drug was, and yet you taunted us all with your innocent looking crochet hook. All along, you were plotting to get us hooked, so you could laugh at us with your scraps!!! Well, your trick worked, I am hooked, and I know others who have fallen under your spell!
I am never going to be able to do another thing with my hands, I will grow old sewing strips together!

....What have we here??

ok, I might be able to put the strips down for just a moment ot two, but then I'm back to the guilty pleasure of ragging a rug.

Actually, this is not that far off, I am really loving this process!! I have loved rag rugs forever, and now I am addicted!

thank you, again, Finn, for the wonderful lessons!

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend, mine will be a little "ragged"

Can't be nearly as bad as me reading blogs at work! Now that is horrible. But I do like the rag rug and my have to try that sometime. And the ice cream, well that ALWAYS takes precedence in my house!

Hey Granny, I plead the 5th *VBS*
Your new beginnings look wonderful...*VBS* And hurray for you for getting it going and in your own direction. Now, of course, I can send folks to YOU for oval directions....LOL
You're doing a great job, and yes, it is addictive, but makes great pick up and take along work...not much thought is needed once you have the prep work done. I'm so proud of all of you gals *VBS* Big hugs, Finn

Yeah, Lyn, need oval instructions! Soon please as I am almost finished with the round one, just need to decide how big it is going to be when I say, "finished!'
How many stitches did you put in the center and do you still do two stitches per loop?

Finn is in big trouble causing addictions like this to her friends! I am thinking hot pads and mug rugs and bowls and more rugs and..............

Such pretty colours you chose for this! I've never tried crocheting with fabric but the effect is lovely.
