Good morning, and a lovely morning it is! It's sunny, with a tiny little breeze, and temps should reach right around eighty. Then for the next five days, daytime temps should stay in the seventies. It's sort of like Autumn is trying to slip in quietly, but Summer isn't ready to let go just yet. We still have a few more weeks of Summer.
Well, no packages arrived yesterday. Bummer! I was hoping for at least a package of embellishments for the dolly dresses. But nope! I did get an email saying that my box of new yarn will be arriving by next Tuesday. Oh gosh, how am I going to last that long without the yarn for my new projects? I'm working on the afghan, but I really want to finish up my other projects first. Ah well, put on your big girl panties Edna, and get over it. You'll live!
I'm so spoiled by Amazon with their two day delivery that I get antsy waiting for other companies to ship me my orders. Wouldn't it be nice if all the companies were like Amazon when it comes to shipping?
DIL Janet was here last evening for supper. I made a big pot of macaroni and meat sauce. Yum! Yum! Afterwards, we chatted, watched TV and worked on our crocheting. The queen size bed spread she is making is almost done now. Gosh, it really is beautiful.
This week, while watching the The Jewelry School, a new tool was introduced that intrigued me so I ordered one. It's called a "looper" tool. It makes the loops on the head pins, etc. for you so that they are all the same size. Wow, such a time saver, especially for these pudgy little fingers of mine. Now I can't wait for it to get here. There's another one that makes a different size loop, so I'll probably order that one too. Here's what the looper tool looks like.
One of my new catalogues has a great section on novelty tee shirts. I love reading all of them. Here's a couple that I thought might give you a giggle. I guess a lot of us can relate to both of these shirt sayings.
A couple nights ago, I ordered take out Chinese food for supper. You know, my Pogo loves Pork Fried Rice and Pork Lo Mein. I fill his plate and cut it all up small and he licks his plate clean. Imagine, my picky little guy loving Chinese food! Who'd have thunk it??? He even had leftovers for breakfast the next morning!
Today I have another quick page for you. I love dogs, and dogs evolve from wolves. This one was fun to work on. I used the kit "Wolf Adventure" by Pink Paradox. This lady has some awesome scrap kits. There is a link to her store on her blog.
Here is your download link:
Now I think I'll make a fresh cup of coffee and take my crocheting out on the porch for a while. I have a plant that needs re-potting so I may do that too while I'm out there. So till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
