new project

we store our plastic bottles in the house til the bag is filled, then we move them outside in the shed to the recycling box.

as we have no more plastic bags in the house, we dont shop often at regular stores that give them out, i figured i'd best make a stretchable bag that can be washed and dried and hole the bottles and cans. first is a picture of it hanging (sideways view) from the chair outside.

then a view of it on the lawn

only took like 3 hours today

our trip to TN

on our trip to TN to spend time with our granddaughter who's 8 this summer, we play to do some fun free things at home.

went to a site my friend vicky told me about www.grandparents.com where they have hundrrds of suggestions of things to do.

i have an old white round tablecloth that we can spread out and draw things on with fabric paints. then we can use it for a picnic cloth or on the table itself.

lie down and look at the clouds and talk about what you see.

also take photos of everything we do to make a scrapbook.

decorate a t shirt with fabric paint by drawing what we want on it, along with the bling

aquarium at the mall if shes' not allready been.

the eiffel tower in paris along with picnic lunch with my son who will be working in that town this week.

making ice cream

singing and playing jump rope and hopscotch

hobby lobby has sidewalk chalk on sale and tshirts and flip flops along with yarn. we'll even get to bring some yarn home to RI.

knit dishcloths

here's an easy one, this one is also good to use as a ribbing.

variation on grandma greens pattern

zig zag dishcloth

charity, crochet

squares for CP comfort afghans

thers at least 92 here and i plan to do more before we get to TN via a plane. gonna hand deliver them, cheaper than postage. and if i need to buy some shirts while there i can do that, just as long as these are given a high priority in the suitcase, LOL

piles of 10 each.
