My website now has 188 hits! It makes me wonder 'Who is looking at my website!?' It's quite exciting.

My goal this week was to complete the masters crochet program but I don't think I'm gonna make it. Which means I'll have to ask for an extension. I've really enjoyed the experience and would recommend it to anyone wanting to develop their crochet skills. The first half comes with descriptions as to how to create the swatch they are asking for, including diagrams for clarity. Chances are that if you've been crocheting a while and/or have done a variety of crochet projects then you can complete this program. For me this was money very well spent!! Visit the Crochet Guild of America website at www.crochet.org for more info.

I start a new series of the BEGINNING CROCHET CLASS and a brand-new series of TUNISIAN CROCHET PROJECT CLASS in September. Each series is 4 sessions. Visit http://tashiab.com/crochet_teaching_schedule OR www.knit1chgo.com for more info.

my early birthday present

30 minutes before my birthday I open my inbox to find my official acceptance to North Park Theological Seminary in Chicago. Woohoo!! I'll be getting my Master of Arts in Theological Studies with a concentration in Old Testament. I'M SO EXCITED! After 12 years, I am going back to school. Classes start in 3 weeks. I am soooo ready for this. Bring it on! LOL

One of my students at Knit 1 told me today that my teaching schedule from my website is one of her page favorites. Yeay! I'm on someone's favorites list!

I also just updated my teaching schedule with a Tunisian Crochet Project Class and new Beginning Crochet Class. These are both 4 session classes. Check it out and sign up today!

This evening I am seaming together the filet crochet tank top I've been working on for the last couple of months. It is almost done. But it may be set aside to complete the Masters Crochet program with a deadline at the end of August. If need be, I can ask for a 2-week extension. I'll have to see how it goes.
