Hello there! I plan to make myself a new pink pussycat hat. The first one I made was with some nice yarn I had here, but I'm enjoying wearing it so much that I wanted to make a new one with some 50% silk and 50% alpaca and in a luscious raspberry pink. I must finish the one I'm making for my new friend before I start this one. :-)
I used this yarn in red for my big red shawl. It's from Blue Sky Alpacas. This is without a doubt my very favorite color.
This is my sweet younger sister Denise, I'm going to give her this hat when I'm done with my new one. We volunteered at Multnomah Falls yesterday. The Historic Columbia River Highway was closed on either side of the falls due to mudslides, so it was a hard day to give directions.
It's always fun when you're volunteering to meet people from all over the world. This lively group of giggly women swooped in the door and I asked them where they were visiting from and one of the girls said it was the center girl's bachelorette party and they flew all the way from Miami, Florida to visit the Columbia River Gorge!! I had to snap a photo. :-)
I made another baby hat while we volunteered - I will have four to donate to the DAR "Operation Diaper Bag" at the meeting on Monday.
It was a rainy and foggy day.. you can hardly see the waterfall which was ROARING!
We are having a sunny day today which is good as the poor ground is sodden. And look.. the Snowdrops are in bloom!
The daffodils are coming up too.. so I'm feeling more uplifted.
For my "news" today - we're dealing with 45 (I'm calling the current president 45) tweeting this: "My daughter Ivanka has been treated so unfairly by Nordstrom. She is a great person -- always pushing me to do the right thing! Terrible!". Can you imagine a sitting president condemning a huge company and self promoting his daughter's business? More HERE.
Then Kellyanne Conway, his advisor, went on Fox news and proceeded to shamelessly promote Ivanka's products. Click HERE to see that. She is being paid by taxpayers now and this is clearly against the rules. She apparently was "talked to" about what she did.
And speaking of taxpayers paying for ridiculous things.. it cost nearly $100,000 for us to cover a recent business trip of his son Eric to Uruguay. What?? Read more HERE.
The only good thing to happen since he took over the White House is that 3 Federal Judges have declared his travel ban illegal. But still, each and every one of his ill-chosen cabinet picks have been approved so far. :-(
Please keep our country in your good thoughts. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
