That NASTY 4-Letter Word...

Take a close look at those white spots on the deck....SNOW!!!  That NASTY 4-letter word is back in the vocabulary AGAIN!!  I guess you can probably tell that I'm NOT a winter person!!  Although it was just 10 minutes of light flurries...you just know what's right around the corner. 

Not alot of excitement here.  I finished the dark teal hat...pleased with the way it turned out.  I'll start another one tonight, just not sure what style to make.  I need to do a round of single crochet on one of the "scrap-happy dish cloths"...and make a few flowers for my other hats, and then I should be ready for the craft show on the 5th!! 

Vacuumed the downstairs this morning and did a load of laundry.  Having left-overs for dinner tonight--chili, tossed salad and some cornmeal muffins.  Easy-breezy!!

Hope you're enjoying your Thursday!!!

Hell-ooooo Blog...

Hi There...
Remember me???  I keep making myself a promise that I'll do a better job with this blog...but looks like I'm full of empty promises.

Let's see...no excuses. Hubby and I went to Michigan to visit my Mom.  Had a good time...and took our time coming home.  Stayed the night in Houghton Lake...one of my very favorite areas in Michigan.  We're heading back there in a few weeks for our annual Christmas shopping trip.  I just love the choices!!!

And...the big news...I finished all 8 slouchy tams for a special order.  I was so pleased....they looked really nice. (See the above picture.) I sure hope I hear from her again.  Believe me...it was great to have her as a repeat customer. 

Next event...the Craft and Hobby Show--November 5th.  I was hoping to get some kitchen "scrubbies" made, but I don't think that's going to happen this year.  I have a few flower pins to make yet...and price a few items...and that should be it.  I'm currently working on a brimmed hat in a dark teal green, and hope to get a few more plain skullies made.  They work up extremely fast!!

I better get some sleep...it's getting late.

See you in my dreams!!  :)

A Quick "Hell-o"...

Mostly sunny today...another real beauty!!  I've been working in my rock garden....fertilizing and cutting things back for the winter.  Hard to believe that we're already into the month of October. 

Have been crocheting...2 hats down and 6 to go.  So far I've finished the mustard yellow and oatmeal colored tams.  Hope to complete the third one today.  At this rate, I should have them done in plenty of time.

Here's one I made for the craft show..made out of super bulky yarn and in 2 shades of blue.  Just a simple pattern...nothing fancy.

Better get my day started...have managed to get a few things down so far this morning.

See ya later!!!

Sunny Sunday...

Well, it's just a beautiful Sunday afternoon, and I have a few hours in between my shifts at work.  I'm sitting here wondering what to do first...and how to enjoy my few hours of piece and quiet.   Think I'll grab my crochet project and head outside to enjoy the sunshine.

Have been working the last few days...it's been "slow".  I guess people are holding on to their money, so they can enjoy their Thanksgiving holiday...which is a week from Monday for the Canadians.  I have the best of both worlds...as I can celebrate once again in November.  (I just love turkey and all the trimmings!!)

Remember my last post and how I was so happy that I finished that special order for the 6 hats???  Well, that sweet woman was so pleased, she ordered another 8 hats from me.  This time I'll be making slouchy tams...in various colors!!  I'm just thrilled!!!!!  I'll take that money and stash it away for the Christmas holidays.  I have 5 grand-daughters...need I say more?????

I guess if I'm going to enjoy a little time out in the sun, I better get out there.  Hope you're enjoying your week-end!!!

Talk to you later....
