Good morning. Tis a bit gray and damp here today, but that's okay. We need a little rain for the plants and lawns. Speaking of plants, one of the Dahlias is getting ready to bloom. Here are a couple photos that I've taken so far.
Well, Deanne and I went to the shooting range Friday morning and had a great time shooting zombies. That's zombie targets. Deanne did really well. I didn't do so bad either considering my arm isn't quite up to snuff and it's been months since we have been at the range. Here are my zombie target sheets.
Friday afternoon, Pogo and I went shopping at JoAnn's Fabric store. After looking at all the beautiful things that were on sale, we ended up buying some ribbons for the dolly dresses. As soon as the new dolly bodies get here (maybe by next week) I'll be able to finish up all the air freshener dolls and take photos.
I've been asked to post a pattern for the neck scarf that I made last winter, so as soon as I can, I'll post it on the patterns page. If there are any other patterns that anyone wants, do let me know and I'll try to post them on that page also.
I've also been asked for more of the gem quick pages. I'll be working on them soon. If you want any gem in particular let me know. So far I have requests for Opal and Sapphire. Eventually, I really should try to do all the gems.
Friday night, I started a new hat and scarf set in one of Red Heart's new yarns (Stonewash). I finished it yesterday and started another set in another new color (Almondine). I'll take photos when I finish this last set.
My shoulder doesn't hurt so much anymore. I've been taking lots of breaks when I'm crocheting or anything else that I use that arm for. This is good because I wasn't looking forward to getting another shot.
My friend Beth tells me that Austin has a shelter that is taking in a lot of the rescued pets from Hurricane Harvey. She and one of her sons has already been donating food, treats and toys to this shelter. I like to know that my money goes directly to helping the animals so I've decided to send a check to Beth. She and her son will go shopping for more food, treats and toys for cats and dogs and drop them off at the shelter. This makes my heart feel good.
Today I have a new quick page for you. This one is rather whimsical. Have fun with it.
Here is your download link:
Now I'm off to make a fresh cup of coffee and do a bit of blog reading. So, till tomorrow, Y'all be safe and have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
