Blog Book

Received the book I had made from my blog -- from the blogs beginning in 2006 thru 12-31-2008.  At the end of this year (the end of the week, LOL) I will have another book made containing most of my blog entries of 2009 and 2010.  I am pleased with the way the book turned out.  Thanks for the link, Robin.  This is great.

New Favorite.........

Here are 5 more finished scarves -- the super soft yarn is a delight to work with.

I started making these cute designer scarves. Very soft and warm and colorful

Have 5 different colors to work with.

Here's a pic of how I wind it onto my yarn winder and then use it FROM THE WINDER -- since this is a really quick project there is no problem in using the winder in this manner.  The yarn pulls off easily and in lengths you want to use.  And this sure saves the frustration of having it tangle all the time.
 Hope this will help a bit.

Christmas Program 2010

Tonight was the 3 youngest grandsons Christmas concert.  It was a beautiful night -- the children, the music, and while driving home a light snow that just put a lovely end to a wonderful evening.
 Are the boys getting tall or am I getting shorter --- or both?  :-)

Ending up the year 2010

I'm  finishing up some of the projects from 2010 and looking forward to doing some beading projects in the near future.  I will always keep some crochet projects close at hand -- most will be for the comfort/prayer shawl program at the hospital and also chemo caps.  Here are the three shawls I am currently working on. They are a simple repeat pattern -- easy and relatively fast to do and still  producing  a wonderfully soft and warm shawl  (I especially like Lion Brand Homespun yarn for these shawls). The Lavender (top left) and the Montana Sky (top right) just need the fringe applied. The pink is about 1/3 finished and the yellow is yet to be started.

Two Posts in One ~~~~~

December 4th, 2010

Our first "lasting" snow of the year.  Love that "first" one -- it is so clean and beautiful. Our Lab, Polly, loves it too -- here she is looking back at me thru the door and asking "Hey, Mom, won't you come out and play with me?"   ~~~~  I did ~~~~ and we both loved it.

Was surprised by daughter, Amy, with a birthday lunch at the Squire.  What a delightful time we had.
Thank you one and all.
