Trying to get high speed DSL setup finished, get a new laptop setup with wireless.
BUT, I gotta get back to my sewing for inventory . . ."guy" aprons next on the agenda. Then into the papercrafting room to move on to making "Thank You" and "Birthday" cards.
Too many fun things to do . . . not enough time!!!!!

I started working on an embroidery pattern from a stitch encyclopedia that I have. But I had to enlarge the pattern--I'm still pretty new at this so it's easier if I enlarge it. I'm using all hand-dyed threads for this project. I also changed the border around it to make it easier. Since I took a long nap this afternoon, I'll probably be up all night working on it. But I enjoy it so it's OK.

Diane, you surely do have your plate full. I hope you will be writing down all your ideas for your projects. It would help for me too, but I have a problem just keeping a grocery list.

Today I have to focus on making cards. Bday, thinking of you, and a backlog of others as I'm so behind and have scrambled to get some out the door on time. I still have 2 of the 3 mini-photo albums to complete, but those may not happen today.

Thank you, all. I will post pics when I have time. And don't worry, I am a list maker! I have the worst memory so I have to write everything down. Dianne

Joanna--I bought the hand-dyed threads at a local shop. They're a little more expensive than what you get at Michael's but I live the colors. I'll try to post pics when I'm done--which may be a while. The pattern features two partridges and there's a lot of detail involved. so I may be working on it a long while. But I like that, cause it calms and centers me.

Today I have done some cleaning around the house. And after the boring stuff was finished, I ran around town with my honey man for awhile. Made some pork chops and mashed potatoes and stuff for supper. Mmmm (My pork chops usually come out kinda grody, but these were good.) IThen I got to move on to the fun stuff.... I finished the scarf I have been working on for the beginner level merit badge for crocheting. Woo-Hoo! Then I wrote out some thank you cards, answered some emails, worked on the RAOK list. Then I decided I would start on some crocheted dishcloths. I have one finished and have started on another. Tomorrow is laundry and craft day!

i am working on spring cleaning and since i was sick last year it is quite a chore. i think i am making a bigger mess than when i started.
craft wise i just finished a bunny for a friend who has been in contact with me since the illness. we lived next to one another since we were born. she was a ballet dancer:


so i tried as best i could to make her a bunny ballerina.
all my crafts are swirling around in my head, but i am slower than ever with them, the anti-cancer meds they give me make your body feel like you have arthritis, and in my case it really has made my hands ache. i am hoping, though that with time i will get used to the medicine and it wont hurt as much.....or who knows, maybe not at all.

I just finished a baby quilt for my first grandchild due May 5th. So now I am working on a new apron and binding my underground railroad quilt. But I am itching to get outside and dig in the dirt.

After walking the dogs, and getting our clothes pressed for the 3 pm Passion Service, I am going to pick up my knitting and sit on the porch working away and enjoying the sunshine. I'm working on a pink silk yarn shawl for my mother as her mother's day gift.

I am working on a crochet recycle project. It is made out of the leftove plastic from an overwrap machine at work. I call them my garage rugs because you put one outside the garage door to catch all the dirt & then all you have to do is hose them off! They are great! When I was little (oh so many moons ago) my grandma taught me to make bread bag rugs & it is fitting to continue & recycle just as she did!
I also am knitting a helmet hat for my husband for next winter. I am making the bottom extra long to tuck down into his coat. Keeps the neck warm!

Karla, where would you find a pattern for bread bag rugs? I want to try and try and make a bread bag tote, but I don't know how you would keep all the bags together. For the time being, I'm working on my second dishcloth.

I am fillet crocheting an edging for a country skirt I am going to make myself. On the sewing machine I have a dress I smocked for my 6 month old granddaughter to put together. Today we are going to the fabric store to buy fabric to make 13 and 18 year old daughters sundresses. The fun never ends.

I'm baking baked beans, fixing some deviled eggs and Slaw. Going up to Overland Park, Ks. at the familys house and need to stop and get mom and load all her things up to go with us. There will be about 25 of us there and all the grand=children are excited. They only see each other a few times a year. So as far as crafts, not much today. May take my knitting up with me to see if SIL can show me how to do fingers in my gloves. Started them during the winter and just can't seem to figure the fingers out. We always get together on Sat. before Easter for dinner because we all go to different churches and it just seems to work out better for all of us. Except mom!! She wants to get together on the actual holiday. Believe me when growing up, holidays were always at our house on that day!!hahaha Old habits are hard to break!????
Everyone have a blessed Easter!!
