Daily Living

Well Hi there:) Ive been so busy I forgot to add to my site:( Ive been busy working on my HooksnGrannies SisterGhan. We had to make 30 squares, 2 for each person. I really enjoyed making them. I used a book called 99 Granny Squares. It was such great fun. I made many different squares. I think Ill make myself an extra afghan I was thinking about a Christmas ghan. What do you think?

  We had a great Halloween. The grandkids came by and they were so cute. I made them all a little baggie of candy. They really liked it all.

Im in the pracess of making Demise Pouches for Madigan Hospital. They are a bit challenging but they are turning out ok.

My mom and me are off to a craft festival here in Vegas. Ill write and let you know how it goes. Have a great day:)

Daily life

  Well, Hi there :) I havent been around much I know. Ive been busy with physical therapy nad then classes in needlepoint and beading the rest of the days. This coming Tuesday I have jury duty. I really like the process of it all. Its very fasinating.

  As I said I have been taking needlpoint classes. I finished my first sampler. It turned out great. Im thinking of taking it down and getting it finished by turning into a throw pillow. I like that idea better than a wall hanging. 

  Im also continuing making preemie hats for the challenge on Hook n Grannies. Ive only made about 30 so far I want to make around 50:) They are so easy to do. I just love Rhondas pattern.

  Well, its late here and I should be getting ready for bed. Ill be back later and tell you more about my life here in Vegas.

Bead classes

Well I went to bead class today and made a stretchy peyote bracelet. I finished with the first one so fast that I started a second one just because they were easy to do.

  I called Carri to let her know that Jacke is having new classes that she would just love to join in. She said that she would go check them out as soon as she could.

I needed to make two bracelets for Lisa for her birthday. One I made in pink and the other is orange, those are the colors she asked me for. I hope she likes them

Well, Im going to leave for now Ill be back later.
