oops moment....

Did you ever have one of those day where you did something and didn't realize just what you did.  Well mine came today.  I wanted some scrap yarn to make a big ripple afghan but I didn't have enough different colors. Sooooo.... I went on ebay.  I don't do the fancy yarns... I am more than happy with Redheart or caron.  Something like that.  I looked at my goodwills too but they only had a bag of white and creams .. I didn't want that. There were these 5 auction.  Each in a different color.  All from the same seller. So I asked if the combine shipping and they did.  I bid on all 5 and ended up winning 4 of them.  I got them for a very good price and great price for shipping.  The pictures of the auctions just didn't do it justice to what was really there.  The box I got today was HUGE....LOL.  And all I could think was... how am I going to hide all of  Plus I stopped at Joanns on the way home and picked up some yarn for a blanket I am going to try and make my Hubby.  So as I sit in the floor laughing, I was rearranging. This is what my yarn stash looks like now...

  The purple bucket is where I put must of what just came today.  The full skeins went in the wire cubes.  I think I might have a yarn problem...LOL.

I hope you all have a great day. I will post pics of a baby blanket I am working on soon.

As of today I am.....

a Married woman.  We got married at 9 this morning at the courthouse.  The judge that married us was great and it was just the 2 of us and we had a great time.  We even went out to BobEvans for breakfast...LOL.  It is somewhat of a secret because he did it with out his mom knowing... long story... so I can't tell many people until he tells her but I know I can tell all my fellow hookers and friends here.  I am soo happy and just had to share.

Hugs to all

Crochet BAM CAL - Ravelry

I joined a Crochet -  Block of the Month  - CAL.  It is a great group.  They post 2 - 12 inch squares and a 6 inch square each month. at the end of the year you have enough squares to put together an blanket if you wish.

Here are the two 12 inch squares that I did for this month.

This one is Maggies square by The Crochet Dude.

This one is Enough Love to go Around by Penny Davidson.

The colors that I am using for my blanket are Pale green, kelly green, and deep violet. I didn't pick them out.  It is the yarn that the kids got me for Christmas so we are going to see how well I can tie them all together.

I hope that you will stop in and check the group out if you like doing things like that.

Have a great week!!

Christmas gift

I made this for my little cousin for Christmas.  His mom said he like dragons and dinosaurs so I searched Ravelry and  found this pattern.

It is a paid pattern and I modified the spikes cause I couldn't make mine look like hers.  Here is what I came up with.

He is almost 2 so I made the 2-5 size so he could grow into it.  It looked cute dragging of the floor behind him like a tail.

I hope that you all have a great weekend and HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

Merry Christmas Everyone!!

I hope that you all have a Happy Holiday and a great weekend.  I have Christmas Eve tonight at my Grams house and the Christmas morning with the kiddos.  After that they got to there dads till Sunday afternoon and I get to spend Christmas evening curled up on the couch with my sweetie.  ( or maybe playing with my sewing machine that is under the tree  =]  ),  I am brand new to sewing. Did it once in middle school all those years ago so if any of you know good places to get tips and such please let me know.

I went with my mom to pick out a new kitten last night.  She is such a doll.  Her name is peek a boo.  She is a light colored calico.  I wish I had a pic to show you all but she hasn't sent me one yet.  I made her a mouse last night.  Here is where I got the pattern.

The English instructions are at the bottom of the page.   It was really easy to make.

I better finish getting ready to leave in a bit but I want to wish you all the best and I will try to get on here more often to let you know how my adventures in sewing are going.
