Well we woke up to great big flakes of snow falling and no heat. Jill lit the furnace for us 3X but it won't stay going so hopefully the repair man will be able to come tonight.
I finished my Feb. mid-month bookmark which will look better when it is blocked.
Then I made three beaded bracelets plus a dozen stitch markers . The stitch markers are for me and two of the bracelets are for my sisters.

Mid-month wash cloth

This would probably look a little better if I had blocked it before posting the photo. It was a fun pattern to do and I like the effect of the bits of colour in the yarn. The yarn is Bernat Handicrafter cotton.

pity party

I have bronchitis and at the moment I am having a little pity party. I missed dinner with the Loud Crowd, the Weavers and Spinners Guild meeting and Fat Quarter Tuesday.
My CT scan appointment had to be changed, so I have to wait another month. I am not happy.
I did finish a wash cloth from the mid-month Kal, but goofed up the bookmark pattern as my brain is not working. Some one has put it on "stun and hold". I am going to do the bookmark over again with fingering yarn, not crochet cotton.

Here are all the goodies that I recieved from Maggie in Alaska. I was delighted with the parcel and am savoring the socks I will make from the opal yarn. The Magnets, the mug, the handmade bag, the DPN made from Bamboo, the seeds , the little gingher scissors in the case. It is a wonderful parcel. Thanks again Maggie I love it all.

Package arrived

I had a lovely surprise today. My parcel from the sock bag swap arrived today full of beautiful things

Martini washcloth

Last night I finished this washcloth. I have a friend in mind for this one. The photo isn't the best as I had to use the scanner and the cloth hasn't been blocked but it is finished. It is almost 6:00 a.m. so I definitely need some coffee.

Well today I finished Jackie's hat. Now we probably won't have anymore cold weather until next year...........LOL

Lazy Sunday

Today I managed to figure out how to get back into my blog and add photos. The Bookmark and the Washcloth are the two projects I have finished so far this month. Both DDs have stopped by briefly today and we are dog sitting this afternoon for the eldest . His name is DJ and he is a Poodle crossed with some kind of a terrier. Really cute little guy. The camera still needs a battery and he won't fit in the scanner so no photo at this time.

Spinning and laughter

Today was a fun day. Sharon and I went to Gail's house to spin. We had a great time spinning , talking, laughing, eating and drinking wine. Sharon was spinning Allsorts but found it dry and coarse so she switched to something out of this hugmongeous bag of fibre. She thinks its polworth . What ever it is , it is very nice.
Gails was spinning some purplish fibre which looked very pretty. This was done with the help of the cat.
I spun some multicoloured corriedale top, very nice. Don't know what I will do with it but it is nice.
