Judy's Desk...Ramblings on Life

I love to do so many things: I crochet, read, and I also write. I believe that it's the act of writing that makes me a writer, not my published works. This blog is a record of my often meandering path as I try and follow my muse.

Location: New Jersey, United States

The short version: crocheting and books...as necessary to my life as breathing!

Present in the Mail!

I wasn't expecting anything from my Secret Pal for a while...but today I had a wonderful surprise! My bright green mailing envelope revealed 3 pattern leaflets - and I don't have any of them - 3 herbal teas and a beautifully embellished journal. The finishing touches were put on by my SP's granddaughter (who happens to share my birthday, no less!) She's the sweetest...and we're getting to know each other through chatty emails and cards, too. It's like chatting with a friend over a cup of coffee! This Secret Pal swap has been terrific. I'm so glad I signed up for it.

Betty Lou's question...

...I would love to answer your question about the squares I made, but you didn't leave me any email address where I could contact you. If you'd rather reach out to me on crochetville, send a PM to me. My name there is: judianne.

A Really Nice Surprise from My SP

My SP is terrific! I received a cute note card from her today...and inside was a perfectly balanced, lightweight, German-made crochet hook! It's a size "J", which I use a lot...matter of fact, I only own one J hook right now since I lent mine to a friend I was helping get started crocheting after a long hiatus. My good deed got "paid forward" as they say - when I wasn't even looking for it...and in such a wonderful way!
TY, secret pal...you're terrific.

My Secret Pal

My unknown SP has been terrific! Contact with emails, ecards and "getting to know you" emails have been waiting for me ever since this swap started - and it's been wonderful! The best part is knowing that you're in someones thoughts and that all they want to do is spoil you and make you feel great!!
Thank you, my friend!

Crochet project updates

I'm making a pink and white baby "quilt" and have just joined a 9-patch block to the star I crocheted...slow progress, but it's progress - and I do have some charity/gift items in the works, too!

Here are some of my crochet projects... the skiens of yarn are for an involved pattern, working with the star posted here. I'll post more progress in a few days (hopefully!).
