~ Moody Monday and a video ~


February 17th - 23rd:

Mon. 17th: bored - off-white
18th: sick/pain - grey = headache
19th: I'm ok/content - aqua
20th: productive/creative - lime = made a video, grocery shopped
21st: happy - pink = AC Moore & Target with Mom & Laura
22nd: happy - pink = Erica's bridal shower & new knitting machine
23rd: productive/creative - lime = laundry, made a video



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



Yesterday almost was an 'irritated/grouchy' day.  Vince and I went to the Dollar Tree to get supplies to put together bathroom baskets for Erica's wedding reception.  After we shopped, we got in line to check out and as I was putting my stuff up on the conveyor belt, the lady behind me started putting her stuff up there.  I took a step back, turned around and looked at her like 'what the heck lady' and then had to keep pushing her stuff back so I could get my stuff up there.  I have no idea what she was thinking - or if she was thinking at all.  I absolutely cannot stand when people get in my personal space.  BACK OFF and let me breathe please.

On a better note - I wish everyone a great day.  :)

~ A couple projects and a guardian grandmas donation ~

This first project is a draft dodger that I made with my knitting machine.  I made a tube 37" long and then stuffed it with polyester fiberfill.  Quick and easy and serves a purpose.
  

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
This little baby cocoon is for my sister Laura's best friend Joanie.  Joanie is due any day now with her 5th baby.
I made it with Lion Brand Baby's First yarn - one skein green and one skein yellow - and I used an L hook.  Joanie didn't want to find out the sex of the baby, so green and yellow are the colors she's using.
  

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
My friend Yvette and her Mom Marie sent me these cute little baby hats for the 'guardian grandmas'.  Thank you Yvette - I appreciate it very much.  Please tell your Mom I said "thank you" to her too.  You're both angels in my book.  ♥

~ Happy Valentine's Day and some things I made ~


Happy Valentine's Day to all my blog friends.  Go ahead and help yourself to a piece of candy.  ♥

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Here's a few projects I've made with my Red Heart knitting machine.  2 scarves and a fat snake for Asher.  The multi-color scarf measures 70" and weighs 4 1/2 oz. - the pink scarf measures 55" and weighs 3 oz.  
I'm really enjoying my knitting machine now that it's quiet.  It's so neat to be able to make a scarf (or the fat snake) in less than an hour.   I see lot's of scarves for my family in the future.  :)

~ snow pics ~

I don't know how much is out there, but I'm guessing at least 8".  I'm not going anywhere for the next 2 days.  I've got plenty of housework (boo!) and yarn (yay!) to keep me busy.  And yes, I remembered to get my milk and bread.  You know - people always say to get your milk, bread and toilet paper.  I understand the milk and bread, but who doesn't already have toilet paper?  I've never understood that one.


   

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

In case you missed this video yesterday (I added it a little later) - here is my great-nephew Asher trying out his hat I crocheted for him.

~ guardian grandmas donation from Akhila and Asher's new hat ~

Hello everyone.  I've received another guardian grandmas donation - this one is from Akhila.  She has sent me a granny stripe baby blankie and 3 little hats.  Don't you just love those little hats?  Look at the pink one with the flower - it's adorable.  And the larger hat is very pretty - I love all the colors.  

Thank you so much Akhila - I appreciate your gift so much.  ♥
