How about a nice photo of my red Hibiscus to add some color to your winter? It's full of buds, too.. I love this plant!
I finished knitting my large cotton washcloth in a pretty gold color. It's SO soft and squishy!
I need to start a new one.. because...
I wrapped the little Guinea Pigs in the soft knitted cloth.. to keep them warm on their way flying 2,409 miles to my daughters home in Ohio. She has informed me that it's not 3,000 miles. It's still a LONG ways.
The cloth is a gift for my daughter, the baby guinea pigs for my 2 granddaughters, and I included 2 skeins of girlie colored yarn for Jenna as she is crocheting a lot! She even told me on the phone that she is teaching her cousin Bella to crochet! I am so thrilled about that. She is 10 years old and I think of how many people she will teach to crochet over her lifetime and it fills me with happiness. I sent two bags of truffles for the girls, and a big bag of beads from my stash. I can't wait to see what they think!
See my new little pouch? WELL.. I was reading my friend's blog - Running With Rocket - and she had made 4 of these cute little pouches for such things as your phone/iPod earbuds and I left a message asking if the little hula girl one was for sale and she emailed back saying Yes! So, guess what came today in the mail? Isn't this cute? I spent 7 months in Hawaii in my youth after graduating from high school so this "spoke to me".
I admire her sewing skills. She makes bags and all kinds of things.
Inside the little pouch was a surprise gift.. this cute little bird ornament! I'm going to hang it on my grandfather clock.. thanks so much, Kathy! There was a little note rolled up like a fortune cookie note that said "Lift me out carefully and set me free". :-)
Our son Shawn invited us over to their new home to watch the Oregon Ducks play the Ohio Buckeyes last evening. I was able to make a few crocheted flowers while the game played.. (my grandson Michael took this photo for me) I kept saying, is that good or bad? Well, it was bad. Oregon lost miserably. But, they did make it to the College Football National Championship, so that is pretty neat. :-P
The pool is closed tomorrow for maintenance. I wonder what other mischief I can get into on a free day?
What mischief are you up to? ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
