Here is some of my tons of yarn,love my Tasha book,had to throw that in there.

Also,one of my crocheted washclothes in thread,the color is a blue green,it was white thread,but colored it with koolaid dye.Also,a rose motif for a crocheted afghan I'm working on.

My first rughooking...

I did this one using a pattern of Jill's,she sent me the pattern and wool strips a few years back.I love it,have the pic on here somewhere,but this is the close up.As you can see,I am a beginner,but that's okay,it's fun.

rughooking with yarn

I discovered rughooking and love it,you can use rugyarn instead of wool.I have to hang them up,not sturdy for a rug like wool,but cheaper.My husband(he's the artist),draws the figures and I do the rest.I love the rabbit one,but with this little computer camera,can't picture the deep color of the background as good.

Valentine's Day...

So our day started as making heart shaped pancakes.Then we went to the florists and got red roses w/babies breath,WooHoo!I went to Shoppers to get a pink strawberry cake,had to get down on hands and knees to find one last one all the way in the back on bottom shelf,hey,I was determined,grabbed cream cheese icing and vanilla icecream.I got three helium pink balloons with candy hearts on them,so cute,for my girls and bag of sour cream chips for son,so he didn't feel left out.

I always make the 13xwhatever pan for a cake,sometimes a bundt,but I decided I was going to make the two round layer cake to put in my glass cake plate.Well,there's something about these moist cakes,sometimes as you're frosting them,they kind of fall apart and this one ofcourse did,it was great we were laughing so hard,the poor cake looked pitiful and my daughter wanted sprinkle color balls on it and they weren't sticking they were just falling off and that made us laugh harder,(had to be there),anyway it tasted awesome.

Have a question...

Did you ever just stand and listen to the snow?Yep,when all is quiet,you can hear it falling.There are so many moments you have as a kid,when you grow up you don't take the time for,looking up at the sky,not at the sun,dodo.LOL I used to lay down in the grass and look up at the sky,clouds in the day,stars at night,how often do we do that when we are adults?I love just looking at ice on tree branches,crackling fire,listening to a clock tick,hearing rain on windows,the wind or even the windshield wipers,I used to make up a song with the rhythm of the wipers and laugh as we swayed our heads with them,oh yes,people are wierd,ha.
Sometimes we need to stop,look and listen,isn't it awesome hearing little kids giggle and laugh?
