~ Moody Monday and a video ~

February 17th - 23rd:

Mon. 17th: bored - off-white
18th: sick/pain - grey = headache
19th: I'm ok/content - aqua
20th: productive/creative - lime = made a video, grocery shopped
21st: happy - pink = AC Moore & Target with Mom & Laura
22nd: happy - pink = Erica's bridal shower & new knitting machine
23rd: productive/creative - lime = laundry, made a video


Yesterday almost was an 'irritated/grouchy' day.  Vince and I went to the Dollar Tree to get supplies to put together bathroom baskets for Erica's wedding reception.  After we shopped, we got in line to check out and as I was putting my stuff up on the conveyor belt, the lady behind me started putting her stuff up there.  I took a step back, turned around and looked at her like 'what the heck lady' and then had to keep pushing her stuff back so I could get my stuff up there.  I have no idea what she was thinking - or if she was thinking at all.  I absolutely cannot stand when people get in my personal space.  BACK OFF and let me breathe please.

On a better note - I wish everyone a great day.  :)

~ A couple projects and a guardian grandmas donation ~

This first project is a draft dodger that I made with my knitting machine.  I made a tube 37" long and then stuffed it with polyester fiberfill.  Quick and easy and serves a purpose.

This little baby cocoon is for my sister Laura's best friend Joanie.  Joanie is due any day now with her 5th baby.
I made it with Lion Brand Baby's First yarn - one skein green and one skein yellow - and I used an L hook.  Joanie didn't want to find out the sex of the baby, so green and yellow are the colors she's using.

My friend Yvette and her Mom Marie sent me these cute little baby hats for the 'guardian grandmas'.  Thank you Yvette - I appreciate it very much.  Please tell your Mom I said "thank you" to her too.  You're both angels in my book.  ♥

~ Happy Valentine's Day and some things I made ~

Happy Valentine's Day to all my blog friends.  Go ahead and help yourself to a piece of candy.  ♥


Here's a few projects I've made with my Red Heart knitting machine.  2 scarves and a fat snake for Asher.  The multi-color scarf measures 70" and weighs 4 1/2 oz. - the pink scarf measures 55" and weighs 3 oz.  
I'm really enjoying my knitting machine now that it's quiet.  It's so neat to be able to make a scarf (or the fat snake) in less than an hour.   I see lot's of scarves for my family in the future.  :)

~ snow pics ~

I don't know how much is out there, but I'm guessing at least 8".  I'm not going anywhere for the next 2 days.  I've got plenty of housework (boo!) and yarn (yay!) to keep me busy.  And yes, I remembered to get my milk and bread.  You know - people always say to get your milk, bread and toilet paper.  I understand the milk and bread, but who doesn't already have toilet paper?  I've never understood that one.



In case you missed this video yesterday (I added it a little later) - here is my great-nephew Asher trying out his hat I crocheted for him.

~ guardian grandmas donation from Akhila and Asher's new hat ~

Hello everyone.  I've received another guardian grandmas donation - this one is from Akhila.  She has sent me a granny stripe baby blankie and 3 little hats.  Don't you just love those little hats?  Look at the pink one with the flower - it's adorable.  And the larger hat is very pretty - I love all the colors.  

Thank you so much Akhila - I appreciate your gift so much.  ♥
