Foto Finish --- Things That Are Slow

This week's Foto Finish theme is
This was a very fun one to think about.
First I went to the "usual suspects" - snails & turtles.
Then, in the car, I thought about that slow poke that was right in front of me, going 35mph in a 50mph zone.
Next I thought about time, how sometimes it seems to just dragggggggg.
But I wasn't sure how I could depict that in a still photo.
So, I have all these ideas percolating in my brain,
and I picked up my latest crochet project.
I had decided to make a string bag
out of actual string!
I really like how it feels & looks so far,
but...I've been working on this for at least
4 hours
and it's only this big:

(The hardest part was spelling with the string!)

And now, this next picture is
especially for
Barbara @ Cat Patches,
who organizes Foto Finish for us every week.
You see, she's just made her plans
to go to a big quilt festival
next year,
in Ireland!

I'll bet that the time between
is going to be
for her!!!

Have a terrific weekend!



  1. Love the "slow" photo! Very fun!

    I'll have to check back for Barbara's comment on the second picture. Very clever.

  2. Oh, I love this, Sue. I crochet too, and so I know how slow it can be . . . not as slow as knitting, however, which I only tried once. (That was plenty.) Love your calendar shot too. You are too clever. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Twenty years ago I started an afghan and it is still only 8 inches wide.

  4. Wow you really put some thought into this week. Love your interpretation of the theme. I am knitting a peggy square blanket for our expected new grandson who is due to arrive by c-section on Thursday morning. A perfect project for winter evenings.


Thanks for taking the time to leave me a comment!
