Today is September 11th - and I am taking this time to remember that day and remember the lives lost and the tragedy of it all. My heart broke that day. To think that there are people that would go this extreme to kill innocent people for.. what? I just cannot conceive of that kind of thinking. America was not destroyed that day, and in many ways it made us stronger. Dayle and I were out and about today and I saw this flag at half mast and I wanted to share this with you and hope you take a few moments to remember with me.
Here is the flag at half mast.
Since I ran out of yarn for my shawl project my hands were empty, so I decided to crochet a 3rd hanger cover - the top one is the one I just made. I love these as my clothes don't slip off the hanger like on the plastic ones.It's fun as I put a different color on each side - here are the other sides of the 3 of them.
Close up of the 2 sides before I crocheted them together. You crochet 76 chains, chain 3 more which counts as the first double crochet, 4 more double crochets into the 3rd chain from hook. That makes the first 5 DC shell - continue to the end for 13 shells. Continue on other side another 13 shells. Finish off. Make a 2nd one. Crochet them together with single crochets - when one side is done, slip the hanger hook through the top between side of the center shell - continue crocheting sides together on hanger until done! :-)I've added to my Jadeite collection! 1 serving bowl, 3 Jane Ray plates (I just got the 3rd today), 1 soup bowl (not pictured) and a sugar and creamer set. :-) Thank you eBay and Etsy! And the mail lady! LOL!
I think my Mom had one of these.
I just adore how the light shines through this Fire King glass!
I think I need to have a luncheon soon so I can use these... :-D
I met with a State Parks man today to pick out the spot for the Portland Women's Forum monument to the woman who's efforts saved this viewpoint for all of us instead of being privately developed. I will show you more as the project proceeds. :-)
When you turn to the right from where I was standing.. you see this. The Columbia River Gorge.
And so.. thank you for visiting me today and reading my eclectic thoughts and activities. And take a moment of silence and think of a world free of terrorism. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
