Newest Addition

This is the newest addition to the family! Its a yarn eater! I so love these, I can create something new out of scraps laying around. I am using the moss stitch to make a queen sized afghan. The yarn is what what left from the flamboyant afghan I did over the summer.... (Which still needs the ends tied in). The best part is I don't have to think.... After all the counting stitches for Christmas presents its nice to do mindless work.... Bonus its so easy! I will show more pictures as I get more done.

After the ordeals of the past two months, I think things are finally starting to settle down. Christmas is almost done, minor things left to do. Grim will be getting his surgery scheduled, hopefully, for sometime in January. Both of the older girls are settling in to the new routine of having nice boyfriends.... Band is done and Bowling is in full swing! School is out on Friday so I get two weeks to just veg! I'm so looking forward to that.... I actually won't get to veg to much as I think I will teaching a canning class here at the house. A friend wants to learn and I have two freezers bursting at the seams. I think some jams will be on the menu! Strawberry, peach and blueberry! I also have a big bag of dried black beans that need to be canned for convenience. LOL, it never seems to end does it. Oh, well... I guess I better enjoy these days before summer comes back again and I find myself with no time.

Bobs and Bits

I would first like to apologize for my absence. Things have come up in real life that have made it almost impossible for me to blog about. Most of it isn't so good. And because of that fact I'm not going to fill up my blog with a bunch of BS and discord. I come here to write about the good and the accomplishments of my family. But its hard to do that when life and times just seems to not be on your side.

What I will say is that what has been happening has been pushing us to get our s**t together and get out of here. I have hinted to it before, because I never wanted to put it out to the universe just to get disappointed  That's about to change. I like my house but we are in a neighborhood that no longer fits our life style. But I think its time to ask the universe to lead the way to finding our bigger and better or smaller and wiser! You get the idea.... 

I personally blame Mercury which had been in retrograde and now is flying high in its new position ... It tends to forget about us Gemini's that are backwards to begin with.... LOL!

We hit another major milestone... The last Major Band event was held this weekend. With that being done all we have left is the countdown to graduation! I can't believe that in just about 6 months Teenage monster will be done with this chapter of her life. WoW! I know I have to stop blinking!

I'll be back soon with happy things to share!

Granny Twinkle

I found this great pattern, its the Granny Twinkle Star!

You can find the pattern here at The Royal Sisters Blog

So far I have only made three.... I am hoping to make a few more.
I want to use them as a bunting, either for the trailer or here in the house!

I will post when I have more done.
