No pictures of my knitting projects as of yet as we haven't decided on which camera we want to purchase.  Hopefully, we'll decide on one soon.

Have a great day!

Nov. 1st, 2014

Hello.......I am SO behind on my blogs.  Of course, even though I have completed many projects, mainly prayer shawls for donation, there are no pictures as my camera doesn't work and I still have not even looked at new camera!

I hope in the near future that I have pictures to share here.

March 26, 2014

Still knitting shawls.  Last week, I turned in two completed knitted shawls.  No photos of them as my camera is still not downloading onto the computer.  In the meantime, I've begun two additional shawls, one in orange shades and the other in blue variegated yarn along with cream and off white. The latter will be finished soon, so I'll then work on the orange one.

Knitting is such a peaceful activity which I so love!  Along with the actual knitting, I enjoy choosing colors for future shawls.  Recently, while sorting through my yarn stash, I spotted two skeins of red.  I then purchased navy blue yarn to add to the red which will make a very cheerful shawl for someone in a nursing home.

Have fun knitting and/or crocheting!

Maybe by the next time I post, we will be rid of the snow which still hasn't melted.  We are experiencing a cold "snap" again here in lower MI. When I got up this AM it was 7 degrees!  Brrr!!!

More Snow and etc.................

Our huge piles of snow had begun to melt late last week. They were looking quite shabby so in a way, it was nice to see new snow covering them.  BUT, 5 inches?  That is what we got.  It is pretty though.  The temperature is supposed to gradually rise this week, so maybe the snow will melt.........I mean, really, really melt!

It is time for spring!

Still cold and snowy in MI!

Hello..........Just a quick update.  Although I've made several prayer shawls and scarves and taken photos of them to share here, my camera for some reason, will not load photos onto the computer.  I have tried many times, believe me!  Once I've researched camera models, I will have buy a new one and get back to the regular business of posting pictures online!

Keep warm and safe wherever you are.

Hi there:  I Hope everyone had a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.  Ours was nice. We have had quite a bit of snow during this time.  In fact, many of the area schools were closed because of bad roads for three days and some for four days.  

Shortly after Christmas I developed a nasty head cold.  I still have it, but am somewhat improved today.  I haven't even stepped outside the house in about two weeks but I will next week for a couple appointments.  Anyway, it has been very cold and the roads slippery according to hubby.  I do look forward to going shopping sometime soon!

I read a great book, "Winners" by Danielle Steel.  Hubby read it before taking it back to the library and he enjoyed it also.  I'd highly recommend it.

Earlier today, I decided to go through my yarn leftovers and stash.  Since I've been knitting so much (mostly prayer shawls and scarves), I decided to crochet a throw (sort of an elongated Granny Square), working around and around until it reaches the approximate size I want it to be. Will begin that later tonight while watching t.v. 

Due to the weather, the knitting group I belong to didn't meet this week.  It meets next week and I'll be glad to see my friends.  By that time, I'll have finished the last few inches of a prayer shawl I've been working on.  It's a beautiful shade of rose.  Will be sure to launder it first as I don't want to share my cold germs!

Have a great week; stay healthy and safe!

Thurs. December 12th, 2013

Its been a while before I've posted on my blogs......While I have taken pictures of most of the prayer shawls I've made over the past few months, our camera will not upload to the computer........we need to get a new camera. 

The prayer shawl ministry I belong to doesn't meet during the summertime, although I did make a couple of shawls to contribute.  Then, I went on to make a few scarves and hats to be donated to someone in need.  As it has been quite cold, I'm sure the recipients will be happy to have them.  So, for a while each day, I work on a knitted shawl, then change over to an in progress scarf.  Hope to have at least one of these finished to take to the meeting next week!  

It is such a joy to meet with the women in the prayer shawl group!  I totally enjoy being with them and chatting while knitting.

Hubby and I need to finish Christmas shopping for our family, so hopefully we can get some done tomorrow as a snow storm is expected Saturday.

Keep warm if you're in an area where its cold!   BRRRR!
