Start the March

I am super tired, didn't sleep in much even though it was my day to do so. I guess I was more excited then tired. Thats okay, today has been a great day.

We got the dishwasher installed today, and man am I thrilled. Months and months and more months of hand washing really started to get me in a fritz. Im very glad that the husband finally gave up on trying to "fix" the old one. It was old thats for sure. Probably the first one the house had. Now not only can my hands have a rest, but I freed up more time in the day, and more counter space for that matter

Also I want to share with you something I worked up today. Something for myself for a change. Seems I rarely do that. Months ago I purchased a kit and pattern from Alessandra over at JustBeHappy! from her shop. Of course, like anything I actually intend on making myself, it sat around for a while, til I decided to bust it out today while the plumber was her installing our new friend. I finished it by the time he left too. So heres a few pics of the pretty Crochet Button Necklace.

Im am really rather pleased with it. Now I think I should have used a slightly bigger hook cause I have a thick neck so its a wee bit tight, but I am sure it will stretch enough for my liking. I cannot wait to make some more.


  1. I'm glad to hear that you got your dishwasher, that's great!
