Some time ago, I posted in some of the forums asking fellow cross stitchers for tips and techniques on how to make backstitching easier on my life. And almost everyone said that I should do it as I go along. But I really dreaded that stitch, so here I am again, leaving it til the end.
Crochet-wise, here are some more flowers. I'm thinking of making it into a shawl instead of scarf.

They are the same flower pattern except I change the color motif and used the threads above.
After I finished my multicolored shawl and my sister's, I will also make one for my mother with this color combination/threads:
And then when I finished all the shawls, I don't know what my next project will be, but I already bought these threads (all the threads I posted here are Canon made by Coats). I'm crazy I know, but I'm happy so it's okay :D
By the way, while browsing for more threads, I saw and bought these Boye hooks at a steal...all 7 pieces at P100 (US$2.25), and if you will look around the net, one Boye steel crochet hook costs $1.99. These are the old Boye hooks and I've read somewhere that it's better than the new ones. I just can't remember the difference. I am not sure how old these hooks are but they are in good condition. You can also see in the box that they were made by Boye Needle Company, whereas today, their new hooks are now being made by Wrights.
It's really very dangerous to my wallet having the needlecraft stores so near our place. They are just a five-minute, or less, drive from our home. Good or bad? You decide... But for me, it's good, good, good! Indeed, very good!!! :D :D :D
