She has been well cleaned and dressed in a beautiful gown and bonnet. Adoption cost is $10 that includes US shipping I will overseas ship for the actual cost to send. Anyone want to give her a new home? Email me at fivefold@epix.net

Ouch where did the month go?

I can not believe a month ago I promised updates and photos. Well once again sickness struck our house and I had a bad bought with broncitus. I am doing much better now and will (God willing) have some photos to share soon.
Afgahns for Amegios update!!! Sqs sqs and yes more sqs have been being joined by 2 great ladies my mom first of all who does not crochet has taken to the task of joining sqs God bless her!!! Then one day she decided she too needed to learn to do a boarder so that her gahns look finished and low and behold she is doing a very simple boarder of HDC around her gahns! The second wonderful lady I met just after the holidays and she is a crocheting machine!!! i bring her a box of sqs one sunday and the next she wants to trade the gahns for sqs I mean she is doing 6 gahns a week boarder and all. Linda you are truely a God sent and we appreciate all your hard work!
Family update!!! My dad had to have yet another stent put into his heart this past week. He is worried there will soon be no where else to go with a stent. He will be 74 on Sat. Happy Birthday PAP!!!! The kids are recovering from flu like symptoms and hubby and I are recovering from broncitius!
Traveling hook update!!!! Shes traveling thru the great state of Texas!!! I think Drew has her now!!! I can not wait to see the beautiful sqs he creates with that awesome hook. I figure we will be finishing up sometime this summer thats a great time to assemble an afgahn????

SP SWAP! I got me a secret pal and I dont know who she is! I am not tring to figure it out since the last swap I did was accidently revieled and I really wanted to be surprized! I dont think my partner knows who I am at least I hope I didnt sign my name to any thing!!!
