Crocheting one row at a time...

Its been more than a week...I almost forgot to blog! I'm doing a custom order for a dress, slowly finishing one row at a time, I already finished one ball of thread...and have 6 more to go!
Other than that, there's a bit of a commotion going on at home and the little luxuries that I normally had are now getting rare : (  I already mentioned I lost my computer, now my brother can't repair it yet since he's getting the house repaired. Aside from the electrical problem, the house got infested with termites - his room is on the 2nd floor and when they ripped the ceiling below, the damage was uncovered!
It looked like this (though I got this pic from a website):


Anyways, I sort of manage using my son's computer at the attic, when he's in the office. But what disables me more now is I don't have a car! My old car needs repair (again), and I don't know if it can even make it to the repair shop...

Back to crocheting, I haven't decided on what to design next...I've been playing around with dog amis, just for fun. I might not continue on writing the pattern for the English Bulldog or the Scottish Terrier, since I can easily get back to both of it, having had finished the Dachshund amigurumi pattern. I realize only a few would appreciate having the pattern, but the effort is worth it - I like it a lot myself :)
And in keeping with the holiday season, and as suggested by my friend Tina, I've made a Santa hat and scarf for the Dachshund ami. Here it is:


 The same hat and scarf can also be worn by  my Bulldog ami  :-)

  3. Thank you Pearlin and Tina :)
    Seems like I'm starting over again. I did lose some of my photo inspirations, bookmarks and some written patterns, but I'm glad I still have a lot to work on and friends like you who are there!

  4. Hello dear Mimi! I´m so sorry about all the inconvenients at your house and car. I can perfectly imagine how much you miss your computer...
    Tina had a great idea and I love how it turned out. Hey, in Ravelry there are a couple of Scotties fan groups... maybe you should write that pattern also...
    Hugs
