Be Careful If You Have A Black & Decker Iron

... A Few days ago, my Mom was going to press something. So she turned on her Black & Decker iron. Walked accross the room to do something and sparks flew!!! Her iron blew up! Good thing she was accross the room when it blew! So be careful if you have a Black & decker iron!!! I'll have to get the serial number off of her old one if she didn't throw away yet.

Learning New Stitch...

I haven't left ! I'm learning a new stitch. It's suppose to be very easy once you get going... But I haven't quite conquered it yet. The Crocodile Stitch.

Also... I'm still making TWIRLY scarves for the high schools. Getting sore fingers from trying to hurry.

I have no idera what our weather is doing... First we're slightly warm, then we get cold again. But the weatherman scared me a bit. He said to expect SNOW before Halloween..!!!

So I guess tomorrow I better start unpacking and cleaning the winter stuff I have packed away.

Sissy is warm in her little Cincinnati Bengals sweater I made a few years ago. She doesn't quite need it yet, but she will later. She has much warmer ones. I just think that one is cute on her.

Need Ideas

Good Morning!

I'm in need of some new ideas of what to crochet for charity. I have been making hats, scarves, headbands & slippers. ( since they are easy & don't take too much yarn. I'm trying to stretch my dollars.)

Found It!!!


Thanks to everyone who left a message about the yarn I'm looking for! I found some on Ravelry & some at Michael's..:-)

So now I can get to my crochet hooks.

It's getting cooler! The only bad part is what I heard on the news. Heating bills are expected to be a little higher! But ours is usually close to the same every year. But our fireplace helps a LOT!!!
