March Is National Crochet Month

I had hoped to create some sort of exciting entry on March 1st announcing the arrival Dee's van broke down during a torrential rain storm on Fridayof National Crochet month, but I've been quite ill, since last weekend, not with the flu (as originally thought) but rather with a very nasty upper repository infection.  I only picked up my crochet hook on Thursday; the rest of the time I've been asleep (or waiting hours in the rain to be towed). 

I am starting to feel better and so I'm going to venture out today and participate in my CGOA Chapter's Crochet Demonstration we have planned at the Bethel Library.  Of course the "Dee Clan" will be there to ensure I don't over do it and cause myself another week of bedrest.  Dee's birthday loot from WEBs, yet to be played withI'm thinking that since I had such a miserable week (including not even having the energy to play with my birthday loot from WEBs!) I'll take advantage of some of the "Celebration Sales" I see sitting in my inbox for some, ah hem, party favors:

      *
Herrshners says they're having super sale on super yarn until 3/7
      * Seaport Yarn says I can take 10% off my $25 order if I use code
EM0307 at checkout if I order before 3/15
      *
Kaledoscope Yarn has some pretty Cherry Tree Hill merino boucle on sale (25% off)

     * Joanns.com is offering free shipping if I use code MARFSE735 withany order placed by 3/7 and is over $35

I do have some photos to share ... I'll try to add them after this entry is posted as AOL has been having some issues.  Stay tuned ... but while you're waiting think of some ways you can share your love of crochet with someone this month!  For ideas, visit the Craft Yarn Council of America's "Each One Teach Two" site ... www.eachoneteachtwo.com

Glad you are feeling better.. I wondered if you were sick, or just really busy since you hadn't been around.
