I don't know why it's so hard to get a good picture of this quilt.  Maybe it's the colors?  Anyway, here is the completed top.  It's the size of my full size bed with just a little overhang, 60"X80".  I've set it aside for the time being and had to complete something of mine.  A UFO started over 2…

Back in October 2015 Peggy posted a photo of a Busy Bee Throw that she was working on and it gave me the bright idea of how to use up all the left over sock yarn I’ve been hoarding for the last 10 years or so.  As I may have mentioned – I knit socks.  A lot of socks.  So I have dozens and dozens of little balls of left over yarn. Waste not, want not, says I. Over the years I have used some of the little left overs and made socks that poor, long suffering DH has worn – his socks of many…

Shared sadness...

Yesterday, was a very sad day for our family. My brother passed away after a brief illness. Jim was the brother that many of you generously sent Christmas cards to him and his housemates. Jim was diagnosed with stage 3 dementia in Feb. He fell and hit his head which cause a massive stroke. We are thankful that he did not have to live with dementia long...

Thank you again for all the cards that were sent to the "boys". It certainly made a difference in their lives. My brother was able…

We said goodbye to the Knitting Community yesterday. And my page:

I have such fond memories of the years on the Knitting Community and special friends, some of whom I have no way of communicating with again (Susan, Marty, Judith), as well as some I'm still in touch with even daily.

Do you all remember those old ladies who always said.....

Posted by Janet/MO on May 1, 2016 at 8:57pm 10 Comments

In my day we wouldn't be       (fill in the blank)        ?   Well I think I have turned in to one of them.  For the life of me I can't figure out why in the world parents would allow their teenage daughters to attend a high school prom wearing a lot of the dresses you see today.  My goodness.  My dad would have grounded me for a month if I had even tried to leave the house wearing some of those dresses.  I know times have changed, but this is…
