He was on life support for the whole time and the good news is that they have just taken him off...and he is breathing on his own...thank you so much to all for your prayers....he has a long way to full recovery, but he will recover....it is just a rough time for our home so I will not be blogging a lot for next few weeks.

Merry Christmas
Happy New Year

My New Project

I saw this cape and hood and couldn't resist making it. Now my daughter has seen it and wants me to make her one. So when I finish this it will probaly go to her. I am using black and gold flecked Red Heart Fiesta and Trimming it with Festive Fur in Black Sparkle. Ohhh it is coming along sooo nicely. It is much easier than I thought it might be....

Swaps Rceived

I received this package from someone??? With the daily trips to the hospital it was joy to receive a package and put a smile on face. I just love the Apron it is so pretty and also love the hot pads....Thank you sooo much!!! But who is it from? There was no note or first name on the package, so if you are the one who sent it to me let me know, as it was not my SP11 partner..

Then I got my Nov Fantasy Brown Fat 1/4 Swap Bot package..Yummy Fat !/4 I love the gold flecked one and cannot wait to make a purse with it...and I also got some pretty notecards and and terrific brown trim and ribbon too. Loved it all...

Some of those hooks can be used for other things rather than crocheting ladies????

Oh I found a wonderful tutorial for a round Rope Rug that is easy and fun.

Come Swap with Me????

Ok now I am addicted to swaps and even run 2 of my own, but I saw a fun theme for a terrific swap and thought wow, that would be great to do but how??? So then I got this idea to put up a post here and ask my blogging friends if they would like to swap with me, no big swap, just would be you and me...the theme will be "Movie Night Out with our Yarn" [I may use this theme on my crochet swap too] anyways, what we would swap:

  • a terrific "Chick" flick movie [ an older movie like Sabina, or An Affair to Remember]
  • a pattern to go along with the movie theme
  • the yarn and notions
  • A mug and tea or cocoa

That's it, of course any other goodies is ok too, but not necessary. So if your interested in swapping with me just leave a post here and email me your addy and I will email you mine. ohhh this will be fun!!!
