A Tough Thanksgiving

Last week I lost not only a Mother but a dear friend. Although she was my husband's mother she was not just a Mother-in-Law to me but more of a real Mother. I am really proud of the relationship that we had. I loved her very much and I will miss her deeply. I enjoyed being able to call her and talk with her when important things in my life came up. I think we had a special Mother-in-Law relationship, no bickering and fighting just respect for each other. I am glad she is not in any more pain but I will still miss having her in my life even though I know she will be with me always.

John and I are having a quiet Thanksgiving here home alone. Our thoughts are with Pat and our families today. It is a tough Thanksgiving.

Nehalem Hat

I finished another hat today. This one was more of a challenge for me at the end. I am really bored with my other projects right now. I have a purse that is so blah and a sock that is blah, so this was a fun one to do. I need to get a dummy head so I can take pictures of my hats on them.

One Bored Dog

Poor Didjerido. Since I have been sick for the last 3 weeks this dog has not had her walks. This is one bored dog. Poor Didjerido.


I decided to teach myself to crochet. The internet is so great when it comes to knitting and crocheting. I can look up how to do a stitch and watch a video from my computer and learn right here at home. Well, maybe it wasn't that easy to teach myself to crochet but I am doing it. I wanted to learn to make crochet flowers so I got a pattern off the internet and then I went to the crochet site and watched how to do the stitches. This is what I have come up with:

Okay, I got my invitation to join Ravelry and I am so excited. I love the website and I have been spending lots of time on there getting all my projects and yarn stash organized so I can see it all at a glace. Here is the link to my account there at Ravelry.

I finished my first hat tonight made with knitting needles. It was exciting because I wasn't sure if I could do it without help but it is fininsed and I like it. I swaped my friend Aly the hat (it is for her friend going through chemo) for two beautiful cerramic coffee mugs she made. They are so great. I collect hadmade mugs and I think these are my new favorites.
