Nice pictures

Here are some nice pictures by Hector .

My granddaughter came to visit at my work. She was shy, and would only be with mommy, but when I gave her some Melba toast, that was it. Gramma was then her friend. LOL. She's 18 mos now.

I met Dude last night

Hey, there is a nice guy! What else can I say? He is funny, serious, talented and oh, so nice.

We went yarn shopping, and after for Sushi, which Dude likes.
I had Chicken Teriyaki, how inspirational. But, hey, I liked it.

Oh, I forgot to mention that Dude came to visit Sherri, and they went to Kingston. Sherri was teaching Tunisian crochet and Dude was learning.

There were 6 of us with Dude the night he arrived here.

Blue Paisley

Maybe a jeans bag would be nice. Maybe.

But later, much later.

Empty thoughts

I was looking for little motifs for my jacket. I found a half finished doll, which I forgot I had started, I found two granny squares that I can use in our next crochet meeting for charity.
I also found some scrumbles I had made, that I forgot I had made. What I didn't find was a pair of purse handles that I had bought at Len's Mill store in December. Sherri and I went there, my hubby was driving, because there was a blizzard coming up, and sure it came. One blizzard in the winter, and it had to come when Sherri and I went yarn shopping.

I am so scared to go to my "stash" room that I hardly ever go there, I just go to the store and buy new stuff. Well, to be honest with you, I didn't actually go there today and take out some containers from the top of the shelf. I asked hubby do it. He did. I gasped, when I saw what was in the first contained. Nice, beautiful yarn that I could use on almost anything. I don't even know what the yarn is, it's so beautiful.

I must get back to reality. I must work on my jacket. I was going to make a purse with my scrumbles that I found, but since I couldn't find the handles, the purse stays as scrumbles.

There are no traffic whining to report, I've been quite relaxed lately, and didn't even get upset this morning when one driver in front of me and a few other cars decided to stop at the green light and then proceed on the red. I think we all had a little chuckle, instead of angry screams.

I wasn't late from work, I still had a full five minutes when I reached the door. Three staff members were waiting outside. Well, who am I? I am one of five who has the key to open the doors. One person, who is always early, was late, and I knew it, and the little devil told me not to rush to work this morning. I didn't. I stopped at the bank, and took some cash for lotto tickets, I also stopped at MacD to get a coffee and bacon and egg mcmuffin, and I also got a free newspaper. Don't think I go to MacD for the free paper, nah, it's just a bonus.

I wonder, if going slowly and relaxingly to work had anything to do with not getting upset with the dingaling who stopped at the green light. There must be something wrong with me.

It is amazing, how someone who constantly brings up the title, the boss has given, and uses it to sprinkle power sparkles over staff, does not worry about opening the doors in the morning. Oh, well, there is me, and that other person, who truly are loyal, and who really aren't responsible for the door opening ceremony. tsk tsk.

I think I will go to WalMart in the morning (the doors open at 7 a.m., can you believe it!), I wonder who opens the doors there. I might buy handles for the purse, that is not done, and is never going to be done, since I have too many purses. I just got inspired, because there are so many pictures of different purses everywhere. I am talking about funny purses and pretty purses, just like I would like to make. One of these days, yes. Maybe I could make a purse tonight, maybe....why not? No, I will not, not tonight.

Jacket on the go

I've been busy.
Started oodles of new projects. All of them, except one, forgotten, in bags, somewhere.

The one that is on-the-go is a jacket for an upcoming wedding in May. I have a full month and
then some, which should be enough time.

Here is the start of a beautiful relationship with a hook and thread

Wedding Shower Gift

Holy smokes (I had a dream the other night that I smoked a cigarette, I "woke" up in my dream, and was happy it was just a dream) it's been a while, since I talked to myself.

I've been busy making wedding shower gifts. I finished tonight, made two pillowcases.
The pattern is "monet pineapple", I had it saved on a cd. I don't think it's available in the web any more. but there are similar patterns, so I am going to use the similar pattern to make a throw for the wedding gift.

Clappy is done!

Finally, after a short break on the project. Well, I had to do other things, too. Have you ever seen me work on one project at a time. I don't think so.

Well, there were no interruptions tonight; and I got the Clappy finished. It's not blocked, or anything, but it's DONE!!!!!

It's 64" long and 18"wide. Yarn: Bernat Sox, 175 gr. (almost 200 gr.)
oh, for petsake, three and half of the fourth skein.
