WIPWednesday: Crochet Block Partay

Hey there!
Do you block your crochet squares?
I've decided to block my scrapghan pieces but I'm trying to figure out which blocking method works better. Wet blocking each block (pinned on my blocking board) or wet blocking and stacking them.

Which method do you prefer/use?

{Mostly} Wordless Wednesday

When you walk past a bedroom in your house and you see this:

He looks guilty to me!
I think he must've realized it and changed his body language.

What do you think he's up to/thinking?
One day I will catch him red-pawed!

Teaser Tuesday ::: Missing Melissa

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, 
hosted by MizB of A Daily Rhythm
I sit on the sofa and my parents and I share a quiet moment.
"Great party," my father says, breaking the silence.
My mother and I exchange strained smiles, and now I wish I hadn't made that promise.
What do you think?
Keep reading?
What are you reading this week?

Liebster Award

Hey Hey! Jenn @ Going the Distance nominated me for a Liebster Award! Thanks Jenn! 

 1. If you could pick up and go to any state in the U.S. right now, where would it be and why?
Hawaii. Something about the water, the trees, the weather, the people - it just calls me. I've never been but if I could go tomorrow. I think all the pictures are calming and relaxing to me and the people are always so happy looking. I'm buying whatever they are selling!

2. Sweet or Salty?
Both.  Don't make me choose! I'm not that mean to you!

3. What are you looking forward to most this Summer?
Relaxing by the pool. I'm looking forward to taking a few mental health days off from work and having some quiet time poolside. 

4. If you could sit and read a book for an entire day, what genre would you choose?
Oh that's tough! It depends on my mood on that day. If I had to pick one I guessssss dystopia. 

5. What day of the week is your favorite and why?
Saturdays. There's no obligation to do anything really unless you WANT to and you don't have the stress/worry of going back to work the next day.

6. Are you on Pinterest? What types of things to you pin the most? Link to your board.
Jenn got me on Pinterest and I haven't stopped. If you follow me already you KNOW it's crochet stuff. My non-crochet buddies aren't as thrilled to see me on there after I've had a massive crochet pin party.

Follow Patricia's board Crafty Crochet Stuff on Pinterest.

I pin other stuff too! Only about 2000 of my 6300 pins are related to crochet :)

7. What's your favorite app on your phone?
     Instagram. I check it constantly. I just love it (except for the stupid sponsored posts).

8. When you're having a rough day, what are some things that you do to de-stress?
Take a HOT HOT shower and try to unwind in front of the TV and try not to freak out and take it out on anyone else.

9. If you could change careers right now, what would you do?
Become an entrepreneur - I'd like to own my own little yarn shop.

10. What's your favorite dessert and/or appetizer?
I love cake and cupcakes. I just can't say no. I love the cupcake craze because that means anywhere you go you can find a cupcake shop - how convenient? 

I nominate anyone who wants to join along! 
Just leave your link below.
Here are your questions:

1. If you could have one extra hour a day - what would you do with it?
2. What makes you "LOL" every time you see/think of it?
3. If you could only eat one cereal for the rest of your life - what would you choose?
4. What TV show rocks your world?
5. What idea/invention do you wish you came up with?
6. Piece of advice you would give any stranger in the street?
7. You have a one-way ticket to anywhere in the world - where does it take you and why?
8. Are you a Spender or Saver?
9. What is your biggest pet peeve?
10. What's your favorite/can't live without electronic gadget?

WIP Wednesday: Scrapghan

I've been inspired by BHooked Crochet and I've started another WIP!

I have skeins and skeins of Caron Simply Soft yarn left over from other projects and lack of restraint of buying them for "future" projects so I'm taking them and making a scrapghan out of them.

Round 1:

Round 2:

Round 3:

I'll share with you once I start blocking and joining! I hope my blanket comes out as beautiful as BHook's!

If you want to make one yourself she has a video tutorial and pattern on her blog.
