Happy Part 1!

 Hello again, Lovelies!

Oh, I don't like doing this...it's so impersonal but I'm issuing a blanket THANK YOU SO VERY, VERY MUCH for all your comments on the previous post! Our GIVEAWAY winners have been randomly chosen so if you entered your Ravely name please check your Ravelry just in case. 

As you know, I love to answer each and every comment! However, my poor typing fingers ( I have two πŸ˜†) declared a strike by first numbing the fingertips then cramping a few key hand muscles. Is this why people have Personal Assistants? I asked Roxy and Lally if they were interested in the job. They furiously wagged their tails and jumped about, basically indicating that they didn't evolve into Dogs just to work for the rest of their lives! There was also mention of upping cookie rations and an extra daily walk because did I not know they were Doggie Princess's and not us working class?


In the meantime, Miss Augusta snuggled deeply into the Chrysalis Throw yarn basket which made it impossible to begin Part 2 of our Mystery Make-Along. As we speak, it's STILL a Mystery even to me. By the by,  those of you Lovelies who purchased the Prelude...you will find Part 1 in your Ravelry Library.





I don't have the heart to move her! πŸ’“

These days I have a small team of Testers. I'm sharing a few of the "tests" completed so far and I'm sure you'll be inspired to create your own unique colourway too? It's taken me ever so long to summon up the courage to work with Testers...don't ask me why. Ok, fine, I'll tell you. πŸ˜† It's probably something to do with losing my mother when I was five years old. She wasn't "lost" so much as died from colon cancer at twenty-four. A young girl, without her Mom, often becomes very independent, resourceful, and self-sufficient. Asking for help is not an option when you have had to rely on self-preservation instincts for most of your life. There's a lot more to it but of course, I don't want to make you all cry, right? Crochet is our fun and happy place! Back to my wonderful Testers who I cannot thank enough, truly you are all a blessing!

Urooj πŸ’“




Amy πŸ’“


Samantha πŸ’“


Yunita πŸ’“


If you haven't yet joined our Mystery Make-Along and would like to then you can find Part 1 HERE. Note, the purchase price includes ALL PARTS ( image-rich + detailed videos throughout ).


Lovelies, as always I wish you a calm, safe and peaceful weekend.

May your yarn basket be ever full ( with yarn, not cats...although cats...ok, I'll see myself out now ).

HUGS,

Jen xx

PS: our GIVEAWAY today is another 5-copies of The Chrysalis Throw Mystery-Along. This is another chance to win a free copy! I'll be doing this until the Mystery Make-Along is completed. Don't forget to leave your Ravelry name if you comment. πŸ’—

PPS: I forgot to mention that I met a handsome Prince last week while the fur-girls and I were on our daily walk in the forest. πŸ˜‰

  49. I am here to give my testimony about Dr Ebhota who helped me.. i want to inform the public how i was cured from (HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS) by salami, i visited different hospital but they gave me list of drugs like Famvir, Zovirax, and Valtrex which is very expensive to treat the symptoms and never cured me. I was browsing through the Internet searching for remedy on HERPES and i saw comment of people talking about how Dr Ehbota cured them. when i contacted him he gave me hope and send a Herbal medicine to me that i took for just 2 weeks and it seriously worked for me, my HERPES result came out negative. I am so happy as i am sharing this testimony. My advice to you all who thinks that there is no cure for herpes that is Not true just contact him and get cure from Dr Ebhota healing herbal cure of all kinds of sickness you may have like (1) CANCER,(2) DIABETES,(3) HIV&AIDS,(4) URINARY TRACT INFECTION,(5) CANCER,(6) IMPOTENCE,(7) BARENESS/INFERTILITY(8) DIARRHEA(9) ASTHMA(10)SIMPLEX HERPES AND GENITAL(11)COLD SOREHERPES. he also cure my friend from cervical cancer Email: drebhotasoultion@gmail.com or whatsapp him on +2348089535482
