further progress on the shawl. i've been working on it in the evenings while i'm watching tv. the colors are pretty dark but i am really liking how it is turning out.
You Are a Black and White Cookie

You're often conflicted in life, and you feel pulled in two opposite directions.
When you're good, you're sweet as sugar. And when you're bad, you're wicked!

I relocated my shelf today ALL BY MYSELF. I am quite proud about it too. The shelf was too low and interfered with the new desk in my sewing room so it had to come down. It's taken me FOREVER, but I finally got it put back up....and in the studs too!!!

SSSHHHHH!! Puhleeze, don't tell Doug about all the holes in the wall. I have until next Friday to get them hidden...uh, I mean fixed. yeah that's it, fixed.

I even used a level (mom would be sooo proud) and I held the shelf and used the power screw driver too and drilled holes in the underside of the shelf so I can hang my doodads back up (dad would be sooo proud).

The smaller shelf (which fell down when the cat jumped on it) got holes drilled into the back instead of the picture clamps. Unfortunately this didn't work either and I suppose I will have to screw it in from the front if I want it to stay up and be used. Otherwise to the trash it will go!!

Poor Doug. He is 2 hours behind us and it's snowing. Weather says it's 25 degrees and feels like 15 and that the chance of snowfall is 70%...tee hee.

That's what he gets for going on a business trip to a place I've never been to and wanted to visit. He better bring back quilting fabric and yarn.

On the up side, it's 72 and sunny here in Evans, GA.

Bet he wishes he were here.

Oh, and by the way Doug, the puppies are keeping your side of the bed warm for you....

What Kind of Knitter Are You?

You appear to be a Knitting Guru. You love knitting and do it all the time. While finishing a piece is the plan, you still love the process, and can't imagine a day going by without giving some time to your yarn. Packing for vacation involves leaving ample space for the stash and supplies. It can be hard to tell where the yarn ends and you begin.

I was greeted with this balloon and chocolates and a wonderful card for Valentine's Day from my hubby, Doug. He also ordered (okay i ordered them) Denise knitting needles for me.

a box of chocolates in the most wonderful velvet covered box.....

They came on Thursday!!! Aren't they beautiful
Well my Valentines Day got a little scary. My friend Gloria who was in the process of moving, got very ill when her diabetes flared up. Stacy, Gloria and i spent the better part of the day in the emergency room. Stacy stayed until they got Gloria in the ICU. Doug, Douglas, Michael and I along with Pastor Rod and a couple of the guys from West Town Community Church (Gloria's church) started packing her house up and moving it to her new place. Gloria is still in the hospital and in a regular room now...THANKFULLY!!! She should be home sometime this week...then she starts the fun of unpacking....

Mom and Daddy sent us this card. ain't it just too cute!!

at the end of the day this is the card i came home to that made me cry. Kylie drew a special picture for me (well and the guys too) and signed her name too. i miss that little girl

My dear sweet friend, Jadene sent me this valentine card. I worked for her parents at their flower shop, Colonial Florist in Annapolis, MD for forever before I moved to Georgia. Jadene is like family and we get together almost everytime I go back north.

Your left brain prefers dogs, reading, and quiet.

The right side of your brain is all about creativity and flexibility.
Daring and intuitive, right brained people see the world in their unique way.
If you're right brained, you likely have a talent for creative writing and art.
Your right brain prefers day dreaming, philosophy, and sports.
