Another Hat..

It's finished..another cloche.  This particular one was made using Bernat Chunky--wine in color with a gold brushed button.  What do ya think??  I just love this particular pattern...it's fast and the end results are just plain "classy".

I worked in the craft room.  Hubby bought me a new cupboard...and I filled it with yarn I had "stashed" in tubs downstairs.  While I was at it...I managed to part with 2 large tubs...which I will put in my yard sale as soon as the snow melts.  Most of it was "dated"...and stuff that I've lost interested it.  But...have no fear...I still have a ton of the stuff...that I'll never use up in this life time!!

Took "Og The Dog" for a walk this afternoon.  He just loves getting outside.  Also dropped a few things off at one of our local thrift stores--a lamp and small t.v....both in working condition.  Now  out of my hair..not worth the stress of saving it for the yard sale.

Well, not alot of excitement...just some daily info.  Hope this finds you healthy, wealthy and wise.......  :)

Until next time...

Home Again-Home Again!!

Just back from our holiday--10 days away from home.  And it was WONDERFUL!  We spent 7 days in Washington D.C. and surrounding areas.  There is so much history there...and so much to see.  We'll definitely have to go back...as we just scratched the surface.

While we were gone, I managed to get some crocheting in.  Finished a tam in Aran.  What do you think?? It's not my favorite color...but it's a good neutral color.

I'm just about finished with a cloche..this one in wine.  Just need to add the button, and it will be complete.  After this, I think I will move on to a different pattern for summer.  It has a nice brim on it...great for walking, gardening, etc.  I make these out of cotton...and the colors are wonderful!!  I call them my "happy colors".

Well, time to finish up dinner and on to my craft room.  I'm cleaning house...I already took a large box and 2 big bags full of goodies to one of our local thrift stores.  Now on the the yarn...

Have a great Saturday!!!

And you want to know WHY I am so sick of winter???  Take a look.  This is in front of our house.

It's like walking through a tunnel. Now take a peak in the back yard.  This is what's piled up in my rock garden...won't see those perennials until September.

At least we can enjoy today's SUNSHINE!!!

Have a great Friday!!
