posting pictures :)

do you remember my 'gwape wool'?
i've been mixing it with other various wools that i have
jacket fluff
creating these wonderful little batts - all each a little different
jacket batts
and OOOOOOh my it is lovely lovely lovely yarn.
jacket yarn
i'm all a flutter about it. can't wait to get more and more and more of it made. i will be either knitting or crocheting myself a coat from this once it is complete. deserves a close-up, don't ya think?

truly, i have been working on crafty stuff... along with painting and spackling... laundry laundry laundry... dishes ...and now all the volunteering at my kiddos' schools - OIY i'm a busy gal

a little cardigan i crocheted for my friend's (Kelly) new baby girl:
Maggie Cardigan i used RH baby teri and some rainbow eyelash i received as part of the Sea of Yarn Swap
a shrug type cardigan i knit for another friend (Jamie) with a new baby girl:
Jessica Shrug it is made from bernat baby in a lilac color
not too bad for my first knit wearable - huh?!?
but trust me, it is not without it's errors:
oops purli purled when i should have been knitting ooops!
and i'm not sure what i did here:twisted stitches my stitches are twisted or something?

alrighty - that's gotta be all from me today - last night's dinner dishes didn't get done, so i've got to do it now (along with this morning's breakfast dishes) and only 30 minutes left before Sesame Street is over and my young'un comes to me for entertainment :)

it's all green.....

woohoo! i received a fan-tab-u-lous RAOK in the mail :)
it's all green yarn with some goodies to boot!
i have a very fun, very special project that i am working on that requires many sizes, shades and amounts of green yarns. but, i can't tell you any more than that. sorry charlie.

green RAOK

she also sent a snowflake bookmark and a notepad shaped like a sheep :)
LOVE it!!

and a wonderful knitted cat toy - that my critters have gone mad for... SOOO funny. even the fat old one that enjoys nothing but food, rubbed and rolled with this toy for a few minutes. hey, any kind of movement from this guy is x-treme



well, the move to the new homestead has slowed down considerably... because of a few different things:
more work of the house than we originally thought - not at all complaining... dude, it's a free house!

oh - hey! what's that i see coming over yonder hill on his white errr.. well, it's no stallion, but it is a chevy! Prince William. okay, not THE prince william, but william none the less and he is the Prince of Plumbing!
yes you are reading right... we are once again back in the year 2005 with running water and able to flush the toilet without the assistance of my neighbor's waterhose.
after several hours of hubby and i in the backyard with shovels resulting in a sixfeet long 4 feet deep trench, the water "leak" (flood) was found. the next morning my wonderful plumber william showed up, nodded and said "yup, ya found it" - that's plumber speak for "as soon as i get back to my truck, i'm laughin' out loud at the thought of you two out here diggin' in the mud in this heat!"

but hey, a girl's gotta do what she can to save a hunk'o'cash... ya know!? and besides, it wasn't all done in the heat of the day... because (oh yeah) it wouldn't be an official adventure if it didn't involve flashlights, right!?

alrighty guys and gals - that's about it from me tonight... tomorrow is cake and ice cream to celebrate the birthdays of 2 of my sons that have long-since passed.... but now the tonsilectomy has healed and we are ready to go!

oh my - has anyone else had one of their children have their tonsils removed? was their breath beyond description?!? the doc assured me this was normal - but OHHHH... truly, gag
