Man you will not believe it but I cant seem to add an entry to my journal. Only with Instant message form. So here goes my entry for you today.
I cannot add or edit entryies to my journal so this is the only way I can communicate to you all right now. Ill contact AOL and see what the issues are.
I have some pics of items Ive been working on especially the ornaments. Ive also been working on dishcloths all this summer. I think Ive made enough to give everyone at least 2 this year:)
Im going to send my pic of the leaf pic I took while in Massachusetts I just love it and thought it was worth another look see:) well I tried and it seems I cant send pics in an instant message format. Sorry

Doing better:)

  Well Ive been gettting encouraged to complete my knitting:) Thanks Dee! So Im trying to work on the socks every night for a few minutes at a time. Im going to complete these socks if it kills me!!

  Ive finished making scarves. Ive made 2 so far. When I made her first scarf I used Lion Brand Homespun yarn and only used one skein to make one scarf. Now Im having to use 2 skeins to make one scarf. They must have shortened their skeins some I think but they cost the same!! Oh well they are going to a great cause. I hope you all are making a few scarves for your local charity.

  Well have a blessed day!

What Im working on now:)

  Well here is my next scarf for Crochet with Dee's race to '60 scarves in 60 days' scarf race:) Fun huh? I hope your all making at least one this November and then donate it to a charity of your choosing. And dont forget to tell Dee at so she can keep track.

  I ran out of this particular yarn color and need to go to JoAnns after church tomorrow. What an excuse that is :) I actually need yarn! I like it so much I might as well get a few skeins more. Excuses... excuses... wow what would I do without them:) lol

   Ill see you all later Have a blessed day and night:) Whoopie!!!!

update: I thought I would give you the pattern Im using to make this scarf. So you can try it out and see how easy it is to make a scarf. The pattern is :

ch 26 for the foundation then dc in second ch from the hook. Dc across you should have 25 Dc. turn ch2 and then do a Fpdc around post of dc on first dc on last row. Then dc on top of next dc.(Fpdc in next stitch then dc on top of next dc) across . You should finish with a dc on top of ch 2 of previous row. just repeat this till you get the desired length you want. Well I hope this makes since to you if not just email me and Ill try and explain it better:) You can tell Im not a designer.

  Oh yea I used Lion brand Homespun yarn with a K hook



  Here it is! Its finally gotten cold enough for me to have a nice cup of HOT tea. Ive been drinking cold tea all spring and summer long. I got up today and I was so cold or really chilled that I made my first cup of hot morning tea. Now to be honest I have had hot tea in the evening when I go out.

  Can you see the steam from the tea Im drinking? Its from a box of tea I bought when I visited Sturbridge, MA.They sell it at the Publick House in their bakery.( Boy I would love to have one of their pumpkin muffins to go with this tea!) Its called Harney&Sons  you can reach them at they make a variety of teas and items to go with tea. Im drinking their Cinnamon Spice tea. Its fantastic, smells and taste just like cinnamon. Its like having a stick of cinnamon in the tea! Try it if you like cinnamon.

  Well I just wanted to share with you my first cup of winter tea.

Boy Hero Doll

Here it is:) This is for my grandson Riley for Christmas. He wanted a Hero doll. So how do you like him? He was fun to make. I finished him in 3 days. I had to go to the store and buy felt for his chest emblem and his belt or he would have taken 2 days to make:) I sure hope he likes him!

  I just thought you would want to see him. I already showed you the grandaughters bed dolls in an earlier journal.

                       Have a very blessed day!
