What I am Reading Now

I have always
had a passion for reading.
I still have the first book I ever tryed to read.
Ballerina Bess.
But I noticed it was getting harder to see.
Well I went to the Eye Doctor and she said " If you want to continue to read, BIFOCALS"
I have been on a lot of meds. for the past 2 years and they are affecting my eyes now.
So I did the Grown-up Thing and got Bifocals.
I have been reading The Forgotten Garden. 
So far it's great.
 It is about a little girl who is left on a ship with a book of fairy tales, that is headed to Australia in 1913. Like all books there is so much more to say.  So If you want check it out.
I like to get my books from Amazon. 

My pictures are from: Me and Tumblr and Amazon.

Geometric Potholder and Lilly's

I just got back from Wishing My Dad a Happy Father's Day. Such a fun day.

Very cool potholder I crocheted. Just lovin it. The pattern is by Priscilla Hewitt. Geometric Potholder. I printed out the pattern and it does not say a web address. I should have written it down. Oh Well !!! Out of the 3 plastic bins that I have you would think I had white yarn. Nope not one.
So what does that mean ????? I had to make a trip to the store just for white yarn. HAHAHA

My mother-in-law's Lilly's are so pretty now. I forgot to take pictures of her poppies. They were Gorgeous. It's sad though they only last a few days.

JUJU says BYE BYE for now.

I have this wonderful book that I really need to find a new home for.

As you can see it is by Leisure Arts 127 pages I bought it for $14.94. Then I went to a garage sale and found the same book but hardcover for $2.00. Wow how could i let that go.

The patterns are awesome. I am sure you can check out Amazon and find out more about it.

My photos that I took are crappy. But the book is real nice. The rules are simple:::
1. Become a follower. If you are one that's great. Thank you so much. Cuz it's nice to here a Hello from someone out there.
2. Leave a comment on this post.
Easy Peasy.
I shall draw a name in the next few weeks.

Good Luck.
If only one person enters than they get the book.

Charity Squares! I love making them. Plus I have knitted and crocheted baby booties and hats for this Charity.....

If feels good to donate!!!!!

Sorry I have not been around. Death in the family. So much has happened, plus being sick at times. I so love to read my fellow bloggers.

Have a Great Day!!!!!

Pattern : Knit2, *yarn over,knit 2 together* end with knit 1.
Keep doing Pattern till done. Very easy and mindless.
So I made 2. and I am working on #3.
Yarn was Plymouth Thick.

The black one I used Lion Brand Thick.

Have a Great Day.

My first ever quilt

One thing I always wanted to learn was to make a quilt. I finally got enough courage to make one. I have been hoarding Amy Butler's LOVE fabric and I didn't know what to do with it. My handicapped sister-in-law's birthday was Wednesday. So I gave her my first quilt.

I have made pocket in a quilt before but no real quilt. I even did binding. To me that was scary. But I just LOVE it.

I am so Happy with it. It is 10 inch squares. I quilted them in the ditch. I did not want to do anything to hard.

<<>This poor kitty. I have used this before. I just think it is soo cute. We have stray Cats around.3 black and white long hair. This winter has been sooooo bad cold, ice, and snow. We have been feeding them cat food. Plus please don't forget the chickens. we feed them too. I am amazed that they cross the street every day to for us to feed them. It's a shame that the owner does not feed them. We are getting hammered with snow again.. So far 6 inches. Plus ice.

Have A Great Day

Ripple Scarf and M & M's

One of my addictions is M & M's. I try to get every new season's.

I don't always put them in a tea cup though.

My Ripple Scarf I double it and make a loop. So comfy and warm. I got the pattern from Lion brand.

One heart I made. Not very pleased with it found the pattern through Theresa's site on my blog bar. She has wonderful tutorials. This one was on you tube

Can't wait for Valentine's Day. We always know Spring is not far away.
