Hi!! How is everyone!? I feel like it's been ages since I wrote a post here (though it really hasn't been THAT long)
This post will serve two purposes. First, my Grow your Blog post (which is a blog party hosted by Vikki from 2 Bags Full) and secondly to help update my active readers with all the details on my life and crafting of late!
If this is your first time visiting; Welcome! I'm glad you stopped by and I hope you like my blog enough to stay for a bit.
Crafty things first!!
Up first for our lineup today is my Viking Helmet!
My friend, Ken, is a viking nut, he likes all things historical but he has a fondness for viking things. So when I found a pattern that I liked, I knew I HAD to make it for him. It was a little difficult at first, but once I figured out how it was all supposed to go together I managed to pull it off. And as you can see Ken just loved it.
A sidenote: Ken, his wife and I have been friends for eight years now on the web, and two weeks ago I was finally able to meet him as he was heading to Texas for a job opportunity. That was AMAZING. For me there is always a worry that I won't get along with someone as well off a computer as I do through one. But my worry was unfounded. And, he gives the best hugs, and I needed one badly that day. So yay!!!
Next up is a KNITTED Infinity scarf (that I'm super proud of by the way)
Up next is my most recent project (this past week infact); A tablet cover.
And now some Amigurumi!
The peacock I made for my mom on her birthday, since she collects them. The original pattern (which I've seemed to have lost >.< ) Was for a thanksgiving turkey, but I felt it would make a perfect peacock with the colors changed. And it did!
The pink wip in the corner is sadly still unfinished and the pieces miles and miles away back home. But I thought I'd share the poor thing anyway so it would feel the love too ;)
This one is just some random bits and bobs that you might enjoy looking at ^.^
And finally a collage relating to school!
Hello to all of the people visiting from the Blog hop! Here's a little info about me! :D
My name is Bliss and I'm 24 years old. I live in Alabama (when I'm not in uni) And I go to school in Dallas Texas at a Bible college. I love to crochet, and I've been teaching myself to knit. I'm also a radical child of God. In the past my blog has been all about crochet and craft things but I will probably be regaling all of you with stories that I find amusing or touching from my days at college. Sometimes I will review a book or music, depending on my mood.
I love purple, and yarn. I have more yarn in my tiny little dorm than I probably should have lol. Anyway, I hope you stay for awhile and follow me! I love interacting with you guys!
(and now for the update part of the post...so feel free to switch over to another post or blog for more photos. :) )
January 5th I left home for Dallas Texas, to return to college after more than a year off. It's been an interesting month to be sure, and now it's almost over.
I've officially survived my first week of classes (I think lol) And I'm already a little ahead in my reading. When I started my first semester in August '13 I never thought I'd make it through the first day let alone the first week and the next four months, but I did. And now I'm finally back and this time has been much easier for me than the last. I'm not as homesick, and already God is teaching me so much.
For those curious; I'm attending Christ for the Nations institute in Dallas Texas, it's a ministry college that I've dreamed about going to since I was nine years old. I'm 24 now, so that's a long time to hold onto a dream, but I am SO glad I did.
I'm taking eight classes in total and have a load of class work already, fun stuff!! And if you guys are interested in hearing more about my classes and such I'd be happy to share, but I don't want to turn my readers off by over sharing if there isn't any interest for it. ^^
Anyway! Yeah. I'm at school now! It's great and fun, my roommates are awesome so far, and I'm glad that I get to sleep in tomorrow lol.
I hope you guys have had a good January and for those of you who are new to my blog I hope to see you around again! :D
