The color of the rainbow


The color of a rainbow. I just
received my package of new
stitching yarn. How sweet are
the colors. I can't wait to
get started on my first blanket.
This will be my rainbow blanket.
The company I ordered them
from is Knit Picks in UK.
I have yet to find any yarn
made as well or as many colors
as they offer. Now keep in mind
I am still new to crochet. If
any of my USA friends have any
to recommend in this great
country please let me know. It
really wasn't that much more
and keep in mind the shipping
was also added.
I was over joyed with colors.
Have a blessed weekend.

What the "F"




My daughter had a midtern at Fashion Institute of
technology. she had to make a three dimensional
letter. Her letter was F as you can see. So course
I made a joke Saying "What the F". I wonder if
she got the joke, I'm not sure. maybe she didnt
want me to know she got it. The art work is
amazing, it was all done by hand, not computer.
I have no clue how she even built the letter.
Hope I made someone laugh.

I taught myself to crochet.



I taught myself to crochet. The first one I did
was the purple scarf and the second is the
pumpkin scarf. It is very easy to do. I
did complete a cross stitch piece but
ordered the pefect fabric to match.
Waiting to receive it in the mail. When
it is completed I will post a picture.
Its always interesting to learn a new
skill.

LHN piece completed






LHN - Bless our Home is completed.
I started this piece , the Air, on the
way to Chicago in July. I will
always think of Chicago when I look
at this piece. Does that happen to any
one else? My sons completed
monopoly board was started in
Williamsburg, VA. Every time I
look at it, it reminds me of VA. I
guess it is a snap shot in time. This
piece will be going off to the framer
next week. I took a trip today to my
LNS and will picked supplies for some
new ornies to work on. I received my
package in the mail from Annette for
the 30 days of Halloween giveaway
today. What sweet gifts. I was the
first winner. I am never that lucky.
23rd Finish of the year.
