Hey Bullies

Please leave our kids alone !!! I am writting in protest of recent bulling my 12 yr old is suffering! This form of girl bulling is not thought of as such but it is what it is. Until Aug. of 2006 my children were homeschooled and did not have to learn the school thing until now. A girl my daughter befriended at the beginning of the school year has turned on her not wanting to be her friend/teasing etc... So from us moms we say Bullies leave our kids alone. We will not stand for it or tollerate it. PLAY NICE!!!!

Shopping = YARN

Yep eventhough I am trying to destash I went shopping today. I was pretty good I think I got only 9 skeins of Red Heart and one peaches and cream. I was only getting 4 skeins untill this voice of reason (my husband) said go ahead Ill give you $10 more. lol
Its ok because I am making berevment blankets for the Feb Blitz. Caps and fingerless gloves for the troops,and cancer caps. So the yarn is all being used for a great cause! Ok I am just rationalizing now arent I.
I was working on a WIP and the doll just needs hair and one more shoe to be finished. Phew thats one I never ever thought Id finish. Next WIP to bite the dust is the blue childs pullover sweater I am making for the Community fair in Sept. Plenty of time right. Yeah right It was sopose to be finished for last years fair.
After that who knows.
After all what would the world be like with out yarn junkies in it?

Well Tackel it tuesday came and went

and the only thing I tackled was the laundry! lol and that wasnt that bad! The main place I want to tackle will come next week. No photos until its done.

Guess what? Yesterday I ran to my mom's for a visit with the kids having a day off it was a good day to go. As most of you know she helps with sqs for the amegios project. Well she does not crochet she just whips the sqs together and I do a boarder. So I picked up 2 yesterday and the surprise is she crocheted a boarder herself on the 2 she did. I am real proud of her. Now all she needs to learn is a basic granny and I'll be in good shape. lol
Its been cold today and a few snowflakes were flying outside. I dont think we are gonna get much!
I have been working on my BedSpread bonanza from over at the Ville. I have a full row done and have a bunch of white sqs done. I am doing a checkered flag for the race driver/fan in my extended family.
My step-dad asked for more rows to be added to the gahn I made for his bed. Its a twin size Mile-A-Minute gahn. So maybe he will get 2 more rows.
I want to work on my doll tonight to try and get another WIP done. She needs sleves/bloomers/and the rest of her hair added on. I started this one to enter into the fair.I have a whole list of junk to do for the fair.
Selling crochet.
Well Its my plan to do a few craft sales this year. My friend Linda and I are gonna do some stuff together. If all goes well maybe we will do the Hegins craft sale in the fall. Its a bit more costly but hey they get LARGE crowds.
I have been getting RAOKed with some sqs to make myself a afgahn. One even from Canada!!! Thanks a ton.
I am sending my Jan blitz package this week and have 3 blankies done so far for Feb. I have also been working on cancer caps and some items for operation tosty toes for the soldigers.
Well have a great crocheting week!!!!! I know I will

Update on my dad
Some of you know he was sick after Christmas and needed stents replaced in his heart. Hid blood count is now coming back to where it should be and he is still weak but recovering. He gave us all quite a scare.
I cleaned out one of my many yarn cabinets yesterday and found about 10 projects that need finished so I am working on some WIPs. I joind a few CALs at the ville already including the Ripple along I am doing a round ripple to enter in the fair and then it will go to the Afgahns for Amegios project. I joined the BedSpread Bonanza. I am making a queen size checkered flad for my step-brothers son and soon to be new wife. He drives race cars! I joined and finished the scarf CAL (photos soon coming)
