I finished the felted hat it was from the Lion Brand Hats book. I used Lion Brand wool. Lion Brand is for the most part good yarn. I do not like their wool. It just is not even close to Bernat or Patons. I have a bunch of Lion wool I bought when Wal-Mart closed out their good yarn selection here. Now it all will be felted purses,totes maybe some mittens for kids. ((bummer)).
I am not even half done on my meme project. I may have to take a break and make something for a baby.
I think my arm is getting better. I crocheted for almost 30. min the other day. Maybe in time I will be back in the saddle. Our house is getting organized and I cook more things I shouldn't like blueberry bread. It does smell good.
Ya and No were here this weekend. We painted magnets for the fridge, baked 2 batches of cookies,played basketball(OK I watched). Ya now can make a crochet chain with even tension. I should have taken a picture of it. It was about 18 ft long (seriously). I started her on a scarf, but all she wants to do is chain. I know this will change and I can't wait till she is looking for project yarn from my stash. I have a dream we go and look for yarn, books, a partner in crime hehehehe.
I did buy the batting for the quilt so my goal is for it to be in the frames by Wed.
Well, may this week be so wonderful that you will remember it for a long time. Smiles and hugs

Let me tell you I am not what I use to be. It took me all day to get to this point on this small quilt. It is still not picked over (strings) or ironed. It seems like yesterday I could have knocked this out in an hour and it would have been perfect. This I do believe is the first quilt I did not miter the corners. God forgive me for thinking less of others quilts when they chose not to miter. As grandpa would say "sissy you have been brought down a notch". Yes, indeed. My dear grandpa I have stomped on my magnifying glass.
I need to decide if I am going to add another patch work border. Nan will be here Thur. night to spend the night. Maybe we can hash it out then. I think I need batting so this may mean a trip to town with the precious nan-nan.
I can only do things for about 5-10 Min's. then my arm hand and wrist start giving me fits. I have a felted hat I am working on, the quilt, a project for me. I switch back and forth for relief....its just hateful.
I made stew today and cookies. I am sending food to my DD tonight then Nan and Popaw. Maybe someone is voiding out my recovery prayers because of all the food they are now receiving. ;)
My dears may you have joy this week . Hugs

I have so many projects I want to do. I can't believe all the free time I have since I hurt my arm :(. I am so antsy. Movies are not the same without something to work on. I am not adjusting well to this.
My bathroom is organized. I mean nothing in my cabinets is out of date. I have little storage thingies with the odds and ends all labeled. In the oven is my meatballs and a loaf of bread....that we don't need. WP will take it to work with him. Here's something on me: I was going to fix a very small roast. I thawed out the roast to find it was hamburger (meatballs). I clean my meat when I get home from the store and repackage it so the hamburger was in roast form. I now need to be creative with meat.
The pic is Ya's quilt. I am hoping to have the squares app. on and set it together by Wed. It will go in the frame. I hope I can still quilt.
The Hello- Kitty things are from my friend that went to Ca. last month. The tea set is from a German MT. village in Ga. I feel so loved.
