Thankful for the Chance to be Thankful

This is our first grandson Douglas putting sox on the toes of our fourth grandson, Ethan. Yes, the baby is on the buffet table where the turkey will soon be- isn't it wonderful?

For various reasons we are celebrating the holidays with our kids and grandkids New Years weekend- more about that after it happens.

A New Beginning

A long, long time ago there was a little girl who picked a bunch of tiny, little squashes from the garden. "They are so cute!", she told her mom. The bloody welts from the flyswatter are very clear in her memory. Mom didn't see the tiny squash the way the little girl did.

Last week my grandsons picked tiny, little, really cute green peppers, green tomatoes and tiny, little cucumbers. They made 'stew' and 'cake' in my kitchen. It ends here.

Vacation fun

We spent last week at the cabin- the highlight of the week was Ice Age- Dawn of the Dinos in 3D.

Here's Douglas wearing his Buck eyepatch. And Scott watching TV at the cabin in his 3D glasses. I got some sewing and knitting time in and lots of grandbaby time!

Glad Rags Re-Visited

These are some of my best work with my original yarn that I call Glad Rags. Great fun to make the yarn and to design the projects to show it off. If you are interested email me or post a comment.

Baby Blanket Edge Treatment

I spent some time in my stash the other day and found a few balls of Universal's Classic. This is what I came up with. As a blanket edge on polar fleece it's stunning. As a stash buster it's perfect for those one-skeiners- from one ball you get a blanket edge and a baby hat! How cool is that? Makes a great baby gift for way under $10!

New Slippers!

I've just finished this design. The slippers are my Super Slippers, felted and very warm and I've added the cuffs. My suggestion is leftover sock yarn for the cuffs so the completed slippers continue to be washable. The first pairs were of course for my grandsons- they approved!
