Cebtral Ohio Binky Patrol...


Lately I have been crocheting squares for the BINKY PATROL...:-)

Tonight I started a Baby Blanket... It looks green here... but it's really a pale blue. It's made by Lion Brand VANNA WHILE... called Silver Blue. I like the stitch... ( I think I'll be making something for here with it later. )


  1. Oh, yes, it's a very pretty stitch (kind of like shells, right?) and it looks so'll be so pretty when you're done. I can tell.

  2. What stitch is it? I like it too "0}

    Oh, and Vanna's Silver Blue is one of my favorite colors.

    Today is my birthday...had a nice day.
    Linguine w/clam sauce, garlic bread for dinner.
    My DD Robin gave me a gorgious COACH bag, I love it.

    I have been crocheting and cross stitching. Also reading. Getting ready to start #9 "92 Pacific Blvd" by Debbie Macomber...her Cedar Cove series. #8 was good.

    We went and saw the movie "RED" yesterday with Barry, DD Rose and herbf Kelly. It was good...alot of stars in it. Bruce Willis, Helen Merrin, Morgan Freeman & more.

    Went to dinner at the Draft House(a microbrewery by our home). I had a pulled pork sandwich n fries, Barry had a Philly sandwich n fries. Yummy! No booze.
