Athena’s P.O.V.
Waking up this morning was like a breath of fresh air. I rolled over on my side to find Dean, half-naked in my bed. I smiled as I watched him sleep. I snuggled close to him, our warm bodies pressed against each other.

For the first time since Logan and I found out we were powerful witches, I felt relaxed. Nothing was going wrong, for once. I was happy. Something that I hadn’t been in a very long time. Not to mention, my brother was happy, too.

Although our mother was murdered by Ricky, things have been difficult, but our dad is dropping everything and staying with us since he is and our Aunt Marie, our only family we have left.
“Morning beautiful,” Dean spoke as his eyes were still shut. I gave him a kiss on his lips and when I pulled away, he opened his eyes. “I want more of your kisses.”

Dean grabbed my waist and pulled me back to him, as he started placing kisses up my shoulders and neck. “We should get up.” I laughed as he kept kissing me, as I was trying to talk. I faced him and smiled.

“Did you sleep well?” He asked as I nodded, laying on his chest. “How about we just stay and cuddle all day? I’ll get up and make breakfast in bed for you.” He looked down at me and smiled.

“As long as I don’t have to cook,” I said as he placed a kiss on my forehead and got up from his bed, I watched as he threw on some sweatpants and left the room. I grabbed his button-up shirt and threw it over my head as I laid back down in his bed, soaking up his scent.
____________________________________________________________________
Dean came in with a whole tray of food and laid it on the bed. He jumped right in and placed a kiss on my lips. “Hungry?” He asked as I went and took a piece of bacon off of the tray and placed it in my mouth. “I take that as a yes.”

Once we finished eating, we both laid back on his bed. “I’m stuffed.” I said as snuggled next to him. “Thank you for feeding me.”

Dean laughed as he looked into my eyes. “Your welcome.” We ended up passing out in each other’s arms.
____________________________________________________________________________________________Marie’s P.O.V.
“The house was completely trashed? That doesn’t make sense.” I said, holding the phone against my ear as I talked to my brother.

“I’m just gonna grab what I need, but whoever did this only wanted to destroy the kids’ rooms,” Tanner said as I sat down. I knew exactly who it was. “I’ll text you pictures of what this mess looks like.”

“Alright, but please be safe.” I reminded him. “Text me when you are on your way.”

“Okay, I will do that. I’ll see you soon.” As I hung up the phone and place it on the table, grabbing my glass of water and taking a sip.

James walked, carrying a jar of pickles. “Here you are.” James handed me the jar as I smiled. As much as I just craved them 5 minutes ago, I didn’t feel like eating. “What’s wrong? I thought you were dying for pickles.”

“I was.”

“Okay, what’s changed your mind about the pickles?” James chuckled. I looked up at him and frowned. “Are we in danger again?”

“Yes, but this isn’t about us. It’s about the twins and I did something a long time ago that I was only thinking about myself.” I said as a tear fell from my cheek. “I didn’t mean to do it, James. I was pressed for time and the only way to get her away from my brother.”

James looked concerned. I had never told him this or anyone for that matter. He got down next to me and held my hand out. “Whatever you did, you had a reason to, at the time. It happens. Look at me, I chose to be a drug addict and an almost lost everything, but you saved me.”

“James, this is different,” I said as I stood up and paced back and forth. I finally turned and looked at him. “Remember Jade for a second.”

“Okay, what does this have to do with what we were talking about?”

“Just do it! Please!” I snapped as he nodded. “Think about her past.”

“Okay,”

“Remember that boyfriend her sister had,” I said, as I watched him still looked confused. “He did something to Jade.”

“Lucas?” He said as he looked at me. “Marie, you didn’t.” He finally knew what I was talking about.

Lucas was Jade’s sisters’ boyfriend who raped her, on the same night, he had killed her sister in a car crash. I bailed him out of jail and his plan was to take Jade and the twins. I don’t know why I was so stupid to let him out of jail.

He ended up getting back in jail but ended up getting out last month. I understand why Jade wanted to get the kids and leave. She didn’t want him to find them.

“I wasn’t thinking, but it makes sense of why Jade wanted to take the twins from here and go. He’s looking for them, James. Tanner called me when he and Lewy got to his house.” My phone beeped as I looked down and it was two pictures.

Logan’s room was trashed and on the wall was spray-painted saying, ‘Luke Jr, my son.’. In the second picture, Jade’s room was trashed as well, but this time he wrote, ‘Jade, my princess. I will FIND you!’ As I showed the pictures to James, he threw his hands in his hair.

“I swear, these kids can’t catch and fucking break! They went from normal teenagers to witches to losing their mother and now, we have to deal with him!” James looked at me.

“Should we call a meeting? They should know what’s going on.”
I nodded as I took another sip of my water. “Let me tell them what I did. They should hear this part from me.”

James came over and pulled me into his arms. “Don’t you worry, I’m not gonna let anything happen to them or you.”

Crafty Sassy: Crochet Travel Bag (Easy)

Hey Dearies! Back with another super cute pattern! This is a market back that I had a blast making! Plus it was super simple to make as well. I ended up making this for my nieces 5th birthday and she loved it!

I would say that this bag a normal size for a bag, it’s not huge, but it’s big enough to fit what you would normally put in your purse. Well, for me, but you can use it for anything!

This pattern is going to be split into 3 parts. The base, handle, and gussett (which is a long part than connects both of the bases, I will explain more as we get there to hopefully make a little more sense).

Let’s begin talking about what you will need for this project:

  • Medium Yarn
    • Make sure you have 2 skiens of the colors you want to use. You will be working with 2 strains of yarn with this project.
    • I used Red Heart in white and orchard. You don’t have to change colors unless you want to, but I did just to see how it would look like.
    • 5.0 mm hook
    • Sewing needle
    • Stitch markers

Base and Handle (Make 2 of these)

Grab 2 strains of yarn, of your choice, chain 37. 

Row 1: Single crochet in the second chain from your hook and in each chain across. Turn. (36)

Row 2: Chain 1. single crochet across. (36)

Rows 3-12: Repeat row 2. Once row 12 is done, you can change into another 2 strains of color. I dropped the white by cutting it and crocheting over it. I just grabbed the other end of the yarn I was working on to replace my white.

Note: You don’t have to switch colors, but I did.

Row 13: Chain 3 (counts as a double crochet), skip the first stitch, double crochet in the next stitch and in each st across. Turn. (36)

Rows 14-19: Repeat row 13. Once at row 13, go back to using the 2 main colors that you were working with before. (You don’t have to do this unless you want to!)

Rows 20-27: Repeat row 2. Turn.

Now, we are going to be working on the handle part, we are NOT fasting off, not yet, but I just wanted to make sure before you start to fasten off. 

Row 28: Chain 1, single crochet in the next 6 stitches. Chain 50. Single crochet the last 6 stitches.

Row 29: Chain 1. Single crochet in the 6 stitches. Work a single crochet in each of the chains. Single crochet in the last 6 stitches. Fasten off and sew in any loose ends.

Once you have made two of the bases with handles, lets start on the gussett, or the part we are going to use to connect it all together!

Gussett (Make only 1 of these)

Working with 2 strains, again.

Row 1: Single crochet in the second chain from the hook. Single crochet across. Turn. (5)

Row 2: Chain 1. Single crochet across. Turn.

Repeat row 2 until it measures out to be about 30in. Fasten off and weave in any loose ends. Fold the gussett, from front to back, at the folded part, place a stitch marker on the row that is in the middle fold.

Assembly: 

There are two ways to do this:

  1. Single crochet around the long sides of the gussett and single crochet around the 3 sides of the bases. Sewing them together.
  2. Single crocheting all the pieces together, using 2 strands.

Whichever way you want to do it, is fine. I found that the first one made it a little bit easier for me to connect them, but I also wanted that nice thick border it has.

When you connect them, the short side of the gussett is the closest to the handles.

If you are single crocheting around, to connect them, make sure that when you get to the corner, you single crochet 3 times.

There you have it! I’ve been one of those people that just love the crochet bag idea and I had to share this on with you all! A very simple pattern, but it can be tricky to assemble!

Crafty Sassy: Crochet Basic Squared Coasters (Beginner)

Hey Dearies! Back at it again with another super easy pattern for you! This even goes with the can cozies we made last week, but I will be adjusting the size so that it will fit all sizes!

If you want to make a can cozy to go with this, here is the link: https://katiesblog96971617.com/2019/08/06/crafty-sassy-crochet-can-cozies-beginner/

So, when it comes to coaster patterns, a lot of them don’t make them as big as they need to be for normal or bigger size mugs/cups. Sometimes the pattern’s picture is zoomed in, so you really can’t tell if they are that big unless you make them yourself.

20190813_083031.jpg

Let’s talk about what you will need:

  • Medium Size Yarn
    • I’ll be using Red Heart Super Saver in White and the border in the same blue mix as the can cozy.
  • 5.0 mm hook
  • Sewing needle

Let’s begin.

Chain 18

Row 1: Single crochet into the 2nd chain from your hook and in each remaining chains. Chain 1 and turn your work.

Row 2: Single crochet across. Chain 1 and turn. Repeat until your desired length.

20190813_080927.jpg

Note: I kept crocheting until the height of my coaster was about 4in. You also have to keep in mind that we are also adding a border as well!

Once at your desired length, fasten off and weave in your ends.

Boarder

Grab another color, or you can use the same color to make the base. I’ll be using the same blue mix colored yarn for the border.

Insert your hook on any side of your coaster. Chain 1 and single crochet across. When you reach a corner, make sure to make 3 single crochets in that same corner.

Fasten off and weave in any loose ends!

20190813_083001.jpg

There you have it! A perfect and simple coaster to make for your guest or just yourself. If you still want to make the can cozy that goes with this pattern, make sure to check out the link at the top of the page.

Unforgotten – Chapter 27

If you haven’t read Chapter 26, here is the link:

https://katiesblog96971617.com/2019/08/05/unforgotten-chapter-26/

Athena’s P.O.V.
My mind felt completely clear as we started to head over to the field. My Aunt Marie stayed inside, keeping the protection spell going. I held Dean’s hand, walking side-by-side with everyone. I looked over at my brother as he nodded.

The closer we got, we saw more. Hybrids as far as we could see. We didn’t know how many there was, but there were two males that we more in front of the pack. We completely stopped as we heard one of the men talking.

“Why don’t we see if we can work this out?” He said as he and the other man headed closer to us. The one next to us looked familiar to me, but I couldn’t remember where I had known him from. Logan stepped in front of us all.

“You know very well what will happen. Hybrids shouldn’t exist. It’s an unbalance in nature.” Logan spoke as he looked over at Lewy and Colin.

“Your kind isn’t welcome.” Lewy spoke as he looked over at Colin, the both nodded.

“Ah, back then we weren’t, but maybe there is a change of heart. I want to discuss this with Athena.” The man spoke again. Dean stood in front of me.

I looked over at them both, they looked like normal humans, but so didn’t the vampires and werewolf’s. “Speak then.” I said as I stood next to my brother. “Whatever you have to say, say it. I’d like to know who killed my mother.”

“But of course,” He paused, placing his hand on the other man’s shoulder. “Your Ricky did the honors, love.”

My heart dropped as I looked at Ricky. Anger filled my heart as I looked into his eyes. He looked heartbroken. I looked at our brother who looked like he was going to jump and kill him. Before we could stay anything else, Lewy and Colin popped into our minds.

‘Do what you’ve been practicing, once they are set on you guys, we will jump in. Make sure it’s up before we start.’

We all looked at each other and nodded. We gather hands, and starting chanting. I once we started, I could feel the power rushing in out of my body as the power grew stronger.

With James with us, we were stronger than ever.

I peak my eyes over to see the hybrids running at us with full force, but once they even tried to touch us, the were turned to dust. Lewy and Colin lead the others, killing the ones that were trying to flee. I closed my eyes and kept focusing on the spell.

After an hour or so, we ended the spell and looked around. Everything around us had turned into dust, expect the two men. Lewy and Colin brought them over as they both laid on their knees. Ricky kept staring at me, as I gave him a hateful look.

“You know how much trouble you have tried to cause?” Logan spoke at the other man, but still kept glancing at Ricky. I wonder if Ricky was someone we knew.

“I don’t know, just kill me now.” The other man spoke, and so Logan did. He instantly turned to dust.

I looked over at Ricky as his eyes changed from a black to their normal color. “Athena? Is that you?” He asked. I looked confused as I looked over at Logan.

“Do you know him, Logan?” I asked as Logan looked over at Lewy. “What’s going on?”

“Well, Athena, you had me erase him from your memories. If I didn’t, we would’ve lost the war.” Lewy explained as I looked over at Ricky. Still, nothing rang a bell.

“Why would you do that?” Ricky said as he looked at me, heartbroken. “The Athena I knew would never do that. I thought you loved me?”

“Ricky, she only did what was best. After all, you killed our mother, would you want her to remember her first love that murdered our mother?” Logan said as it still burned my mind that this Ricky would do so.

“I-I killed her?” Ricky said, he looked rather surprise. He looked at me. “I’m so sorry, Athena. Please, just kill me.”

I grabbed the sword that killed mother and plunged it into his heart, he instantly turned to dust. I dropped the sword and headed back inside, with Dean running behind me.

“Are you alright?” He asked as I grabbed him and pulled him in for a kiss. I felt his hands around my waist as we kept kissing. He pulled away and leaned his forehead against mine. “What do you want to do to celebrate?” He asked.

“I think I’ve got a few ideas in mind.” I smiled as I grabbed his hand as we headed inside.
__________________________________________________________________________
Marie’s P.O.V.
“Ricky killed her?” As a repeated what Tanner just told me.

“So, what happens now?” Tanner asked as James came over, bringing me a glass of water.

“Well, we can’t leave this place until we have replacements, but even then, it’s dangerous since we are one of the most rare types of witches.” I explained as I took a sip of the water. “Lewy and Colin will go back to where they need to go. As for you, I think it would be best for you to pack up any of your stuff and come back to stay with us, if not move closer to us.”

“As long as it’s okay for me to stay here, I will. I rather be with my kids than away from them.” He said.

“Of course it is, there are plenty of rooms in the halls if you wanted to stay with your kids.” Elle came in and added. “After everything that you have been, I think it would be best that you stay by their side.”

Tanner nodded and started to turn away. “Don’t go alone, Tanner. Taken Lewy or Colin with you. I don’t want anything to happened to you.” I said, giving him a hug before he left.

Crafty Sassy: Crochet Can Cozies (Beginner)

Hey Dearies! So, today I have another super easy pattern for you all! Since we are still in the hot weather in Maine, I figured we would make some can cozies for our soda cans! This also goes with a set, so next week, I’ll show you all how to make the coasters that go with them!

If you are just starting out, this is going to be perfect for you! Especially if you don’t want to just make a dishcloth, which is what most crocheters recommend to start out.

Let’s talk about what you will need:

  • Medium Yarn
    • I’m going to be using a multi-colored yarn from Red Heart. I forgot what it was called since I lost the label for it.
  • 5.0 mm hook
  • Sewing needle
  • Stitch Marker

Let’s Begin!

Round 1: Chain 2. Make 7 single crochets in the 2nd chain from your hook. Do NOT join, we will be working into a spiral. (7sc)

Make sure you place a stitch marker at the end of each row. Move the marker up after each row is completed. This will help you stay on track.

Round 2: 2 single crochet in the next 6 single crochets, single crochet in the last single crochet. (13 sc)

Round 3: *Single crochet in the next single crochet, 2 single crochet in the next single crochet* Repeat 6 times. Single crochet in the last single crochet. (19 sc)

Round 4: *Single crochet in the next 2 single crochets, 2 single crochets in the next single crochet* Repeat 6 times. Single crochet in the last single crochet. (25 sc)

Round 5: *Single crochet in the next 3 single crochets, 2 single crochet in the next single crochet* Repeat 6 times. 2 single crochets in the last single crochet. (32 sc)

Round 6: Working in the back loops only. Single crochet in each single crochet around.

Round 7: Single crochet around. Repeat until your project reaches your desired length. I’ll be crocheting until I reach about 3.5 inches tall.

Last Round: Slip stitch in each single crochet around. Fasten off and weave in all loose ends.

20190806_162211.jpg

There it is! Sadly, I didn’t have any cans to actually use and show you how it would look, but I tried my best to shape it so it looks like it was holding a can. I think these are super cute and fun to make or have for guest to use!

Make sure you see next weeks blog post, it will go along with this pattern. It’s a coaster that is perfect for this can cozies!

Unforgotten – Chapter 26

If you haven’t read Chapter 25, here is the link:

https://katiesblog96971617.com/2019/07/29/unforgotten-chapter-25/

Logan’s P.O.V.
We heard a terrible scream, immediately, Athena and I ran to the entrance and saw our father, holding our mother in a pool of blood. He was sobbing and rocking her lifeless both back and forth. I dropped to my knees, I could feel the tears pouring out from my eyes.

Athena rushed over to my mother and my father looked into her eyes and over at mine. “I’m so sorry. I didn’t see it happen.” He spoke as Athena tried to move our father’s grip from holding our mother.

“I can save her, let us save her daddy!” Athena screamed. I felt someone’s arms wrapped around my neck as I cried more.

“Athena, it’s too late,” Lewy said as she stopped what she was doing and Dean pulled her into his arms. I watched as her head buried into his chest, I could hear her crying.

I pulled Roxi into my arms and held her tightly. She pulled away to look into my eyes and very softly touched my cheek. “What can I do for you?” She whispered as I just held her, crying.

Even though my mother was a pain in the ass, she never should’ve died this way.

Something enraged me that someone would be such a coward to kill our mother and leave. Something in me clicked and I let go of Roxi and started walking towards the field.

“Easy, don’t go out there until we have a plan.” Colin stopped me as I kept on going.

“Logan, dear. You need to come back!” I heard Elle say, which stopped me dead in my tracks. I turned to look at her. “Please.” I slowly looked back at the field, waiting for anyone to come out of the shadows and face me.
__________________________________________________________________________
Marie’s P.O.V.
“Oh my god, what happened to her?!” I said as I saw my brother bringing his lifeless wife and laying her on the floor. I got on my knees and looked at her, I tried to use my magic to help her, but it was too late. “What killed her?”

I asked my brother, but he stayed on his knees, silent. He just stood there looking at Jade’s face. Lewy and Colin came over. “With this.” Colin said as he handled me the sword. This wasn’t just any normal sword. This one was laced with deathly poison that can’t be undone with magic.

I handed the sword to Elle. “Make sure no one touches that. It’s laced.” James, came to my side as he got done on his knees, sobbing over his dead best friend.

I held him in my arms as he looked at me. “What do we need to do?” He asked, as I looked up to Elle, Lewy, and Colin. We all knew what this means, the war has started.

I stood up and looked over at my niece and nephew. I could feel it in their souls that they were heartbroken and wanted revenge. “The war has been started. Dean, Roxi, Athena, and Logan, we need to cast the protection spell, as I will be in here. James will go out to the battlefield with you all, I’ll keep the protection spell up.”

“You aren’t staying her alone,” James said as I nodded.

“Don’t worry, we are leaving her with a few of our kinds, not to mention she will have Elle with her,” Lewy spoke, as James nodded.

“Lewy and Colin will be outside with you all. Make sure your kinds know that it is happening now and get them ready.” I said I looked over at my niece and nephew. “I know that you want to mourn the loss of your mother, but we need to make sure that this kind doesn’t make anyone else lose their mothers. Take that rage and use it for the battlefield.” They both nodded as they headed to their halls to change.

I got down next to my brother. “I’m so sorry that this has happened to you, but your children will make sure that whoever did this, will be stopped.” He didn’t say anything, just wrapped his arms around me. “I love you.”

“I love you, too, but I’m going out there with them,” Tanner said as he stood up and walked over to Lewy. “Change me.” Lewy looked over at me.

“Are you sure you want me to do this? Once you are changed, you’ll be at your strongest, however, if they get ahold of you, they can turn you into one of them. You’ll lose not just your family, but everything.”

I grabbed my brother’s arm. “Think of your kids, Tanner. They don’t need to lose both their mother and their father.”

“Fine, but I’m going out there. I’m not leaving their side.” Tanner said as he looked over at Elle. “Suit me up, I’m gonna kill whoever it was that killed my wife.”
__________________________________________________________________________________
Athena’s P.O.V.
I quickly changed into my ritual outfit and headed to the room, but before I could leave my hall, Lewy was standing there. “You need to make a choice. This will affect everyone, Athena.” Lewy spoke as he came out of the shadows.

I looked at him, but I was still unsure about it, but in my mind, I just wanted to find out who killed my mother. “Do it. Wipe Ricky from my memories, please. I need a clear head.” I said as Lewy nodded and looked into my eyes.

I could see him going back to when I first met him, he had just turned 4 and I was just born.

Next one was when I was I first knew I was in love with him. He took me to his prom. He snuck Logan and I in, we danced to one song, that I always called it our song. Unconditionally by Katy Perry, we were dancing together and as I looked into his eyes, I knew that he felt it too.

The last one was when I found out he was stilled alive. I had hope that he would be completely fine and that I was gonna do something to change him, but because what happened to him, he wouldn’t be able to change.

All of those were wiped. I blinked my eyes and looked up at Lewy, I was a little confused why Lewy was standing in front of me. “Excuse me, I need to go.”

As I left my hall, I saw Dean and my heart fluttered. I gave him a long passionate kiss. As I pulled away from him. “I just needed to do that before we go into battle,” I said as he smiled.

“Don’t you worry, we have this. I’ll be by your side, always and forever.” Dean said placing a kiss on my forehead.

Temperature Blanket Update 2019 – July

Hey Dearies! With July finally coming to an end, it’s time to show you what our lovely temperature blanket is looking like! So, this month has been SOOOOO hot! Although we haven’t reached 100-degree weather, it has felt like 100 degrees on some days!

As you can see, our blanket looks different. It has an addition to it, and let me explain why.

So, as I have mentioned before, this is my first crack at the whole temperature blanket thing. I didn’t have a lot of time to really think this through and get the yarn I needed for the blanket.

I was gonna add the addition to the beginning of June, but totally spaced it, when connecting my squares together. I didn’t realize until I was in the middle of July that I wanted to do so. With that being said, I finished off July with the addition.

Let me tell you, I didn’t plan for the blanket to be this BIG, but on cold winter days, this will be the perfect thing to snuggle with on those chilly days. Anyway, take a look of it yourself!

20190731_125616.jpg
January, February, March, April, May, June, and July.

I tried my best to get the entire blanket in the shot, but for the future, I will be taking two pictures, just to make sure that I get the entire blanket in the shot! Literally, I was moving furniture around just so I could get a full shot of how big it is.

This is in my living room if you were wondering. The bigger it gets, the harder it will be to take photos, but I will try my best to keep giving you an update on it!

20181222_124142
100 degrees – Fire Red (I Love This Yarn)
90 degrees – Pumpkin (Red Heart Super Saver)
80 degrees – Bright Yellow (Red Heart Super Saver)
70 degrees – Jelly Bean (I Love This Yarn)
60 degrees – Green (Main Stays Basic Yarn)
50 degrees – Turqia (Red Heart Super Saver)
40 degrees – Soft Blue (I Love This Yarn)
30 degrees – Dark Orchid (Red Heart Super Saver) *Changed to the following – Violet (Red Heart With Love)
20 degrees – Orchid (I Love This Yarn) *Changed to the following – Orchid (Red Heart Super Saver)
10 and below – Light Gray (I Love This Yarn)

How do you tell which color to use?

I, personally, go with the overall temperature. So, let’s go by today, for example:

Today in Maine, the overall temperature is 17 degrees. I would choose the light gray.

Let’s say that it was an overall temperature of 22 degrees, I would choose the Orchid color. All my temperatures, for my colored yarn, has to have the same number first number. If that makes any sense, I’m sorry if it doesn’t!

What was the highest temperature for this month?

We have had a few days of 90 degrees, which are the orange squares. We haven’t hit 100 degrees, yet, but this is Maine. It’s rare for it to hit 100 degrees, but it has been 100 before in the past. It’s gotten close, but once it does, you’ll start to see some red squares when we do!

What was the lowest temperature for this month?

70 has been the lowest temperature we have seen, but only if we have a wonderful rainy day! Although, we have been getting a lot of thundershowers, that I HATE! Thunder scares the crap out of me and makes my anxiety go from 0-100 pretty quick when it comes to that.

Do you post daily updates?

Yes, I do. On my Facebook page, I post a picture of the square for each day. I also tried to post every week’s worth, but it was hard to keep track of, so I’ll be posting monthly and daily instead.

If you haven’t liked my Facebook Page, here is the link below! It keeps you posted and updated on my temperature blanket and any updates for my blog and YouTube channel, as well!
