A place to write about my crocheting, things I'm learning, book reviews, ideas, projects in mind, works in progress, patterns, photos, fair entries, whatever...

The Paperwork!

I finished another scarf today and decided I had enough different designs that I could self-publish a booklet of Tunisian scarf patterns. I spent several hours at the computer making notes; things that would need to be included in the pattern book, things that needed done, pictures needed, etc. I also started typing the specific patterns.
In the evening I spent another hour or more putting written patterns and photos into my reference book. It's a 4 inch binder with records of all the items I've crocheted. Well, technically not all. I have patterns, yarn wrappers, yarn samples, and photos of all the projects since the beginning of 2003. The previous decades are mostly gone.
After getting all the patterns & photos into the book, I spent time making notes of the pages of items that I entered in the Gratz Fair in the fall of 2004, and the items I entered in the Pennsylvania State Farm Show this month. I entered 15 items in the county Fair, and won 12 ribbons, 4 Third place, 4 Second place, and 4 First place which included a Best of Show for an afghan. The Farm Show had less categories and you could only enter 1 item per class, so I only entered 6 items. I won 3 ribbons, 2 Third place and 1 Second place. I thought that I didn't fair that well, however, my husband reminded me that it's not a County Fair, it covers people throughout the state. Okay, that's not too bad!
Now I need to learn how to add links and photos to this site to make it more interesting.
