Everyone in our area hunts. Many people rely on catching deer to feed their family. I enjoyed reviewing the Quaker Boy White Buck Grunt call. It was easy to use and is freeze proof, patent pending and is a silent adjust. You can also change the tone of the grunt you use. Perfect for the hunting season get yours now! Take a few minutes to look around Quaker Boy 's site as they have many great calls and items! I did receive this item for review purposes and no monies were exchanged.

Fall or Peas and Carrots ? #CROCHET hat and scarf

Image may contain: 1 person, smiling, hat and closeup     We were surprised with the fact that Clay had a extra day of his vacation. It was great since it was the FIRST day of his vacation! Since we had a major electrical problem it worked out nice since we called another electrician, the first one didn't respond back. I think he may not have liked all our BEES as we are beekeepers. We went to Walmart and Lowes. I grabbed two skeins of "fluffy" yarn that I hadn't spotted before and LOVED the color! Clay and I popped a couple of those cheap movies you get in the bin at Walmart when we got home. I was wondering how much was on the skeins so I decided I would go for a hat and maybe if I had enough would make a cowl or infinity scarf. It worked fast since I was using a Size N hook - so hooking at the speed of lighting..  Oh yeah the, Metal N Hook is  available at Walmart for about a buck. I found that there wasn't much difference between the single and double crochet with this yarn so I did double crochet. Both projects were finished during the two movies. I showed Clay and he started LAUGHING! The fit was right the cowl was right, but the COLOR! After being a interior designer and make up artist as part of my career portfolio I knew it could still work for me,  but I did toss it out on facebook.. to see what everyone else thought.. (http://www.facebook.com/RuthiePople - friend me please or follow me!)  and yep, peas and carrots, and other comments showing for me this wasn't the best choice.  People weren't thrilled with the project. HOWEVER.. I think this would be awesome for rugs, home decor, and a fall blanket. It will be a fun challenge for me to find a way to make this work for me.. LOL.. another thing in my career portfolio image consultant.. so fashion is in there.. My strongest skill has always been sales, marketing, influence 2nd being the arts- Maybe I can market the Peas and Carrot look for fall? All said if you buy this yarn make sure you pick out a nice project cuz it it is pretty awesome. Sorry about the career bio guys.. I have worked so long I am a natural born sales influence type person so it is just part of me :) Love you guys next time you eat peas and carrots think of me wearing this hat in dignity! Or snap a picture of me in those people you see at Walmart! LOL

Branching out to bigger things #CROCHET #KNIT



The other day I had a fellow crocheter/knitter come over for a visit. She makes the most beautiful work I have ever seen. Unfortunately she has no interest in online life but fortunately for me we are crafting buddies. We usually exchange patterns and ideas. We had been discussing all the various types of yarn lately and getting out of the box so to speak by creating items with different tools and pulling various yarns into different projects. I like to periodically crochet blankets with cotton yarn and watch as it goes from a blanket to a baby blanket at times LOL. I also love to teach people for free how to crochet, knit etc.. to make sure our next generation enjoys this great hobby. So today I just wanted to encourage all of you to do the same.. share your hobby..share your love for crocheting. I truly believe as we share together we ourselves grow in our hobby!
