Work Week Has Ended

It’s good to get back to normal and on a regular schedule. My work week is over and now I’ll concentrate on my home and some projects.  I would like to finish my bathroom rug this afternoon and tonight.  I’ve crocheted two more dishcloths this week and now I have all the threads need to start a new cross stitch project.

Project for tonight is to complete the other half of my crocheted bathrug. It’s made of cotton and will wash up good each week in the laundry. I plan to make three of these to replace a few of my very worn rugs used in there now.

I’m using three different thread colors for my dishcloths and can normally make a 9″ one in a night while watching TV.

My crochet project is coming from this booklet which I bought new in 1985.

My project station is right beside my chair in the living room. It’s also my writing station. I plan to send out at least one letter/card a week in 2019.

    It is so excellent that people still do this. My niece, who was not brought up with it at all, knows how to knit. I am not certain if she knows how to crochet. I do not know why, but I believe that it is healthy to know how such things work, and where some of the things that we consume originate, or used to originate. It is like gardening in a way.

      Tony, I truly believe that sometime in the future people will be looking for homemade everything because computers and electronics are going to take over everything including our jobs. Everyone will be looking to make ends meet because their jobs have been taken over by machines. We see and hear this everyday and learning old ways may very well keep us alive!!

        Unless we get replaced by the machines that are being developed now. I think that humans would innately be drawn back to old technology. However, I do not believe that machines would be so interested in it, especially since those creating them are not interested in it. I find it ironic that the ‘S______ Valley’ (that will not be named) where all this horrid technology originated, happened to develop within, and then destroy, the idyllic Santa Clara Valley, where we once lived such simple and sensible lifestyles.
