We made it safely back home and had a wonderful visit with our daughter, Jennifer in
St. Petersburg, Florida this past week.
I stayed busy on the way down with my knitting and crochet. I finished Brea except I have to purchase the handle and sew the lining. I will post pictures of it when I am done. I have to get my serger fixed first as I sewed over a pin and now it won’t sew. Ugh!
This is the crocheted blue purse cover that I made on the drive to Florida. The small pouch I finished on the way home with my leftover yarn from the blue and black purse cover. I was going to knit on my Something Red sweater and realized that I had forgot to take the size 7 Knit Picks Option needles I needed to work on it, so thus the little tapestry crocheted pouch.
The Little Pleated Skirt that I had knitted for Jennifer fit perfectly and she loved it. I did have to crochet a little edge at the top to run a small crocheted cord through so that it wouldn’t fall off. It was the perfect solution!

Since it fit her so well and she really liked it, I am going to knit her a green one. Here she is wearing it out to dinner last Friday evening for her birthday. The guy with her is her boyfriend Sean.
I gave Jennifer a refresher course on her knitting and also taught her to crochet. I’m so proud! LOL
