jaunt around town

wheels on fire fabric to make tony a cover for his computer chair. cuz of the amount i got it was $25, think i need to do a few more surveys to pay greg back LOL
also cuz of the after xmas sales i did get some baby yarn, denim blue to mke a marvel sweater for myself. the light yellow is great for the spring and summer but this blue will fit in the following seasons. thinking size needles will take 5 months to finish.
went looking for Wii things but most stores were out so ordered online for a good deal, buy one, get one at half price. nobody was out today, stores were deserted.
forgot to replace my headphones that broke just the other night so ill be using the laptop to finish listening to books on tape from the net.

nice that some people still appreciate a hand made item.

jautnt around town

mom came to the mainland yesterday and we went to nanci smith's house for the annual christmas navy relief luncheon. what a huge house for just the 2 of them. they do now travel a lot and i hope to get them hooked up with my mom when they travel around prudence for the day. they've only been on the water. after a nice lunch, i had brought a pasta, chicken and broccoli with alfredo sauce 4 quart pan but they had barbecue pulled chicken and pork and a few salad greens. i didn't come home with much of mine but enough for dinner. met all kinds of new people that work at thrift store now. they are revamping the area and it's een closed a month. pat will take inventory but she gave us each 3 skeins of tlc to make blue afghans with. after we left we headed to sew nice ad mom spent a handful of money on lighthouse fabrics. we also were each given a zip up canvas type bag, just like the one the hospital gave us but a little smaller. got a nice place to put a bottle of water. i use mine everytime i go out. everybody loved my sweater and scarf and hat set. i worked on hats for hospital while there. her christmas tree had all handmade ornaments. she also gave us each a pasta angel that she had spray painted in silver or gold an put a halo on. very adoreable.
was on the phone for 4 hours today to get an item for the stove returned and my money back. will be working on more hats for hospital as i have small amounts of leftover yarn and probably go there this upcoming week as gregs' off again. they might have yarn LOL

mindless projects, my sweater

been working on hospita booties and hats, little barbie doll sweaters, hat/scarf for tree ornaments and will shortly restart my knit/crochet afghan resembling quilt patterns.
my self striping sweater is done. made wristers and a hat to match.its very light weight, good for summer as it's got short sleeves, they end under my elbow.

baking since day after thanksgiving. just now done and all mailed.
made a jacquard yarn hat to match my vneck sweater that is all done but the neck and assembling it. stated on wristers that will go a long way up my arm. also want to make a scarf in the same yarn.

there's been no yarn at hospital to make hats and booties.
