Sorry I haven't posted here lately. Seems like there just isn't enough hours in the days sometimes to do everything one needs or wants to do.
Been busy, working, living, playing. all important things.
The big news of the week is I found out that one of my designs is on the cover of the June 2012 issue of Crochet World.
I am so thrilled to have made the cover. That is a first magazine cover for me.

My creating has been my major focus and when I pick up my hook and get going everything else tends to fade away.
But I am back and I will try and be better about posting.
Tuesday was Prescott day this month. Spent the day visiting with the crochet group up there. They are such a great group, I love going up there and talking the talk.
We took short hike Easter day. It was rather warm so it ended up being far shorter than we intended. But the ground was hot and poor Pip was letting us know that he was uncomfortable. I think his hiking days may be over for the summer. Though this weekend is supposed to be cool. So we will try and sneak in one more with him.
We did come across a band of bachelor wild horse. These are young male horses that band together as they aren't welcome in the main herd. The stallion doesn't allow upstarts to hang around.
We saw them across the river and snuck up where I could get a picture or two. Turns out I didn't need to sneak. They are used to people on the river and ignored us totally. Good news is I was able to take as many pictures as I wanted.
I will share a few with you.
I have been working on the final piece for a book and also a piece I want to enter in the CGOA design contest. So I have been very focused on my crocheting this week.
Here are the pictures of the horses as promised.
A good shot of my favorite one of the bunch
Here they were watching some people rafting down the river.
Shows over time to relax.
A close up of 2 of them. I liked the bay best. But he wouldn't follow me home.
