Men's crocheted slippers

Here are the finished crocheted slippers I made for hubby!  I sure hope they fit :)  Now we have "his & hers"  slippers haha.

It has been a rough last couple of weeks.  This past week we had exams in nearly every class... and of course, my body decided to get ridiculously sick the weekend before.  Needless to say, I got very behind & wasn't able to study like I wanted to (& without being able to study... that means I didn't get crafting study breaks!)
I am hoping to get caught up soon & will hopefully get my crafty time back :)  But in the mean time... I have lots of notes to go over (and ink stains to remove from laundry... fell asleep on colored pens & highlighters lol, yup).

Sea glass!

Took a little stroll at the beach and found these.  I'm so excited to make sea glass jewelry out of them this summer.  A couple of the pieces are quite large, which I was thinking might look cool in a jar or around a candle or something, we'll see.  I'd love to hear your ideas :)

I didn't bring much yarn to school with me... thinking I wouldn't use it much, but I have already made several things and knew my yarn wouldn't last all term.  Not knowing if/where you can buy yarn here, I just figured I'd have to plan better next semester.  Well, my classmate went to the States for the weekend, and offered to bring things back for people!
I asked for yarn, if she had space, and here is what she brought back!!  I am beyond excited :)  I was thinking she'd bring a skein or, if I was lucky maybe 2.  WOW!

I currently have 1 of hubby's slippers done (made from the same blue yarn as my crocheted slippers) and have other projects in mind!  I crochet or knit on my study breaks to relax :)
