Whew, sorry I took a little break!

I have been busy traveling and taking classes, crocheting....

Oh where to begin??

I had a concert to go to, Joe Bonnamassa at Caesers Palace. I met up with Tanya for dinner. We went to Gordan Ramsey's pub and had meat pies, I had beef and Tanya had the chicken, wow, they were great!
Joe B...Played his heart out, he is truly an amazing guitar player and singer!

I also got a little gift from Tanya's yarn business:
a skein she dyed called Wine Wednesday..just for me!

She has an online store

and she sells locally here at

also if you are near Englewood, Colorado, they sell her yarn there: Wooden Spools


I tried my hand at a little Amigurumi, making stuffed animals in knit or crochet...
a cat, imagine that!
He needs one more leg!
He is not perfect and still a little wonky but I am getting better!

I had my big bingo tournament to go to, 2 days of bingo where they have 25,000 and 50,000 jackpots plus 1000.00 games and 5000.00 games you can win....
Yes, I won a 1000.00 game and so did my friend Debbie that comes to town for the bingo.
We had fun eating and playing, you get free meals, buffets box lunches, really good food too!

So that has been my busy October and there is still more to come, I have a cooking class on Monday to go to One pan sheet pan meals, should be a good one!! I will let you know.

Hope everyone is enjoying the cooler weather!

Boho Purse! I made this!! Can you believe that??

First and foremost, my heart is breaking for everyone suffering today due to a suicidal rampage shooter here in Las Vegas, Mandalay Bay is one of my favorite places to go have staycations at, I am sure they will improve on their security measures and will continue to be my go to place for concerts and spa days!! Las Vegas is safe...this was just a crazy person that could have gone off anywhere.
I love my city and pray that we heal quickly from this horrible tragedy!

As always...Life goes on, today I finished one of my projects that was sitting around, I think October will be my month to finish all "works in progress" So let's see how many I can get done this month, 1 down and plenty more to go!!

I have to thank for the inspiration, so many great patterns there!!
This pattern is called Urban Gypsy Boho Bag by Jess Coppum

If you would like to see more my name is Onecreativecat over on ravelery the best place for knitters and crocheters to play!

I would also like to thank Tanya for the material for the lining and she helped me when I got confused in the piecing of the panels......but it was an easy pattern to follow, the confusion was just my own issues...
I found an old belt at the antique mall for 12.00 and made the handle out of it.....I can't wait to go to a concert with this baby!! I still can't believe I made this!!!
