Let Me Know You Were here!! :)

Thursday, September 29, 2011


I see it's been well over 2 weeks since I paid a visit to my blog.  Sometimes...life just gets in the way.  There's ALWAYS something that needs to be done.   But...I'll start fresh...and save you from the details of the last 2 weeks.

Well, I finished my order for the 6 hats in time and got them mailed off to Toronto.  Since then, I've sold another, which went to Quebec City...I've been fortunate the last few weeks to get 4 more hats completed, along with another scarf.  I'm currently working on a  neck warmer in a lovely rust color and it's giving me great STRESS!!  It's a "no brainer"...and I think it's the amount of yarn I have to work with that's causing the problem. 

Not alot of news here in Northern Ontario.  I'm hoping to get down to Michigan to spend a few days with my Mom before she heads out to Florida for the winter.  To win the lottery and make the south our winter home is such a dream....but dreams are free, right??  And you just never know where Lady Luck might be hiding...

With that...have a "lucky" day where ever you are!!!

Back To Work...

Back to work today...I need a rest!  Had a busy day yesterday.  Dusted the house, did a load of laundry and CROCHETED.  Just about finished my 5th hat for a special order.  One more to go....

This particular hat is black...hard to see the stitches, but it's turning out very nice.  I found the yarn at a thrift store and it is sooooo soft.  Wish it had a label on it...as I'd sure get some more. 

Also listed a few things on eBay...started the auctions off at a VERY low price, hoping I get a few bids.  Sold our 70's phone...and it's heading to Nova Scotia.  One item down and a ZILLION to go!!  lolol

Hope you have an awesome day....it's a beauty.  Not a cloud in the sky!!

Oh...by the way...Sunny The Cat sends a BIG "hell-o"!!!  :)

It's been a long time since I've made any effort to sit and blog.  Not much going on, but have been keeping VERY busy. 

I've been doing quite a bit of crocheting.  I had a sweet lady from Toronto order 6 hats from me.  Isn't that great news????  Six mock ear-flapped caps in various colors...one is pictured above.  She needs them by the 20th, so I've been crocheting up a storm. 

Have also been trying to "de-clutter" this house.  Not a "hoarder's haven" by any means, but alot of things that just need to go.  I list several things on eBay, and the things that haven't sold, or that I don't THINK will show much interest, have just gone to one of our local thrift stores.  Hubby tells me I need to be careful that I don't buy them back...and it HAS happened.  I have enough items to list to keep me busy for a year!! 
I really should get back into my yarn bins and empty some of them out, but I'm not at the point of wanting to part with any more yarn...at least for the time being!! 

John went to the Barrie flea market for the week-end, so I have a few days to myself. I do have to work, but no double shifts until Sunday.  My parents are coming for a visit on Sunday...just for a few days, so that will be a nice change. 

Better get my house dusted....hope to talk to you soon!!
