June Things...

I've been making some July 4th things for around the house,finished one americana washcloth and started the other.Plus a little colorful afghan I've started,I'm just all about color lately.
As usual Molly is loving my yarn and wherever there's yarn,she'll be laying on it or next to it. :)

The baby bunnies are running around and we caught one of them peeping at us from within the flower bed in front yard.

I needed a couch cover and goodness they are expensive.I started looking around,found this King Size Egyptian Cotton bedspread,$25 at Target...Yay!!!

Yarn Yarn Yarn

I went to Joanne's today to pick up some yarn and saw that a container I've wanted for some time,but was too much,was on sale.Yay!!!So,I got my daughter one for her writings and me one for what I'm working on and can just carry it around with me. I wanted to also show you a pic of a 9 point afghan I've started,just testing to see how I'd like it.I like it,it reminds me of ice cream,a great summer afghan.

Johnny Rockets...

We went to eat at a really neat restaurant today,Johnny Rockets.It's decked out in a 50's style decor.We caught it at a good time,weekday,between lunch and dinner.On the weekends,it's packed.It was such a novelty to go there,but the thing is,it was clean with good food.It was fun,reminded me of the old fountains where when I was a kid would get a grilled cheese sandwich,fries and hot fudge sundae.Today I got the same thing,except a chocolate malt,mm.I had to take pictures of it,so when some customers had left,I quickly grabbed some pics. :) It made me want to start collecting 50's red chairs,appliances and some more kitchen accessories,fun.
