Been Too Involved...

I've neglected my blog. ...been too involved reading all of yours~~here, here, here and here! I'd better get back here more often! I didn't even wish everyone a Happy Valentine's Day! Intentions were to post the cute valentine's quilt that I've been working on, BUT problem after problem has prohibited the completion of that cute little item. Last known issue (at midnight last night), my sewing machine was sounding 'bound up' and not going well... I'm hoping Monday morning will be a 'better day' for the sewing machine. It's pretty hard, but I try not to enter the sewing room on Sundays. I figure Sunday's should be a "special" day. I try to do things on Sundays that I don't other days, and not do what I do on all the other 6 days. Make sense? I should stay out of the computer room on Sundays also.

I'd like to show the Delft Blue and White scarf I crocheted. (Crochet and crocheted are wierd words~~how about crowshae and crowshade? much better :) All the athletes coming for the Special Olympics that will be held here in Idaho, will receive one of these scarfs. A young man that attended my home preschool years ago, is sponsoring the scarf making as his Eagle Scout project. It was fun to be able to participate, even doing just one. ~~Take Care~~~

Thats a great Eagle Project. Nice job. The scarf is cute. I have been trying to limit my Sundays to hand work. But its hard. You're a good example.

Thanks for the heads up on my blog. You are sweet!

Good luck on the sewing machine. I hope it doesn't have to go into the shop. The last time mine bound up it was 3 weeks and $125.00 later . . ugh. So good luck with that.

Nice work Mom, you rock. See now you know the truth that you don't have to have B around to post. Don't you feel liberated! The scarf turned out great.

What a great Eagle Project. Nice that your were able to participate. I haven't crocheted forever.

I try to stay out of my sewing room on Sunday's too. I need to leave the computer off on Sunday too. Nanette's idea of only handwork on Sunday is a good one.

Oh yeah. This is how I ended up on Julia. I clicked on her name here, because I wondered if it was the julia that probably doesn't quilt. It wasn't, but I noticed you had been tagged. And the rest is history. . .
