Back in early April this year
(everything else I've tried before had failed).
It ain't easy!!!!!
Thirty five years of addition are not easily turned off...!!!
But again, life is about choices.
And that was the moment I felt I had to choose:
do it, or else...
or else ... meaning I have not only myself
but my husband to consider
(he totally depends on my survival for his own survival, no kidding).
And that is when I went into the survival mode I told you about a few days ago!
It wasn't easy and it still isn't easy... but ...
it feels soooooooooooo... good!!
I can do now lots of things I wasn't able to do before
(and I had not realize I couldn't!... amazing, isn't it?!).
Anyway... how does the Tunisian crochet fit in all this quitting talking.....?
....... that was one my strategies to succeed:
to learn and/or to make a new pretty thing every day!
I love to crochet!
Have made lots & lots of blankets!...:0)
(I would wake up really early, the cigarette cravings killing me)
I would sit at the computer,
watch YouTube tutorials
(I gotta say this: I love all those wonderful ladies
for sharing their knowledge and helping me out!)
and learn everything I could about Tunisian Crochet!
I'm not going to describe the technique here,
if someone wants to learn how to
it's really easy to find about it on the net,
but I will tell you it is a crochet technique
made will a special hook
(it's just like a crochet hook but much longer)
and the way you work it looks like knitting
it's in fact crochet!... :0)
Now... once again... if I want to master it
(and believe it, I already do...:0)...)
I have to practice a LOT... and so I did...
The pics do tell the rest of the story!
