I have ordered from Smiley's yarns - I've gotten some really good deals over the years. I picked up some Rowan yarn there last year that was fantastic. They buy close outs when lines are discontinued so be sure to order enough of what you need as it might not be there again.

Blessings, Sheri

No pictures yet Joanna. :( My camera is missing. I wish I could convince Danny it's time to go to the crate so I can go to work. But he's not going for it.

Brenda~ I just saw an add for smileys yarns the other day in the Woman's Day magazine. I took a look at their website. They have some really good looking yarns and cheeee-eeee-eeeeep too! Too bad you have to place a minimum $50 order or would have had to give it a go. I'm glad you brought this up. I was wondering the same thing.

I'm working on getting better and healthier in preparation for my next dose of chemotherapy. It's a day by day process and sometimes all I want to do is sleep.

Frannie, I haven't been on the line lately. I've only had one dose of chemo (non-Hodgkin's lymphoma) and my hair is starting to fall out. Spent last week in the hospital with atrial fibrillation. The past couple of weeks have just been YUCK. I get to feeling better and then WHAM, I'm back on my keester again.

I'm on a low fat low sodium diet and that is so undesirable to maintaining weight.

I'll get through it because I only have six sessions of chemo with one coming up next week and then only four left. Oncologist says that it gets worse before it gets better and that when I'm finished I will be cured! Hope he is right.

Thanks for asking.

betty j. ,
sorry to hear you have been going through this.
i had breast cancer, with bilateral masectomy, and chemo , radiation.
i had my first three month post everything visit the other day.
my first husband had non hodgkins lymphoma around 10 years ago, yesterday he had his 65 birthday.
i hope you do well, and i would love to hear what is going on with you on a regular basis. when i had cancer, the farmgirls here were so helpful to me with their prayers and thoughts.
i will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.


love

joanna, i know what you mean, creating has always been so much fun for me, and good therapy as well. when i was so sick, i would just come on the site here and check out all the creativity that the farmgirls have and it would just boost my spirits. now i am back to creating again. but that little pig, like i said is toooooo cute.

I am finally again working on my husbands cardigan/sweater. Crochet. I had to put it down to finish up Christmas presents. But when the sweater frustrates me I have about 4 other crochet projects in the works to choose from....clothespin bag, dragon toy, dish scrubbies, a small scarf.
Joanna, I should use that method, perhaps I would get farther along on my projects. :) I too am a coffee hound. :)

Hi Alicia! LOL!! Coffee hounds unite!!
You will be pleasantly surprised how well the 10 minute method works!
I caution you, it takes a month of sticking to it before it "feels" normal. Once you get past that, things just work!!

I would love to see pictures of cardigan you are working on. I crochet as well. Like you, always have many projects going at once depending on my mood, weather etc

Sheri, your hat box is absolutely exquisite. Reminds me of a piece of Stickley furniture I saw not long ago.

Joanna-
I'll get some pics of the cardigan and my other WIPs up on my blog.
I'm a little anxious about the seams on the cardigan. All my other seams were never that big of a deal, not...important enough? But I've put so much work into this darn cardigan that I want the seams to be perfect! I have a number of crochet books I'll be looking through, think I'll practice on my swatches.

In the meantime I've finished another washcloth, in a pretty, springy orange multi shaded yarn. Worked on it at wrestling practice for two evenings. Short and sweet. :) Probably about 3 hours worth or crocheting, looking up to watch the boys for a minute, chatting with the other moms, back to crocheting.

Woking on knitting a washcloth for a swap and two completely hand sewn quilts. Also, I am always working on my writing. Writing is something that I have to do. I always love seeing what others are doing. Thanks for sharing.

I just finished up a book wreath (and posted a tutorial on my blog), and after I do some housecleaning, I'm going to work a little more on my dishcloths for the swap!

After doing the usual morning chores (on my day off from work)I'm going to sew a cover for my netbook. During the snowstorm last week I sewed two sewing kits for some of my teenage sewing students and I made a pincushion out of a vintage teacup for a woman who hosts a creativity club each week at the college where I work. If I can figure out how to upload the photos (or have my tech savvy kids do it!) I'll share my projects. Dianne
