Hello My Friends and Fellow Bloggers

Just an update real quick. I think I may be pulling out of this bug (whatever virus I caught) No sore throat anymore, just itching like crazy. So far (knock on wood) I don't have much of a cough, but still have a somewhat stuffed sinus'. Getting better I hope. Energy level is slowly picking back up as well.

I just finished last night knitting a blanket/aphgan I had been working for better part of a year on. It is made from a really bulky fluffy yarn. I'll post a pic as soon as I take one. Sure was nice working on, as it kept my legs VERY warm. Last night our temps dropped to 20°F so it was really nice covering up with through the night (even if I still need to weave the tails in LOL)!! I also finished the 'back' of my vest the neighbor is kindly teaching to me knit. I did that a couple days ago. I only have about 3 rows done on the next section. And I finished knitting a dishcloth I had been working on off and on all summer. So that is what I have covered in the knitting section while being sick and staying off my knee.

For the crochet UFOs,,,,I haven't gotten anything done there. Only finally dug out the other night. I will start working a bit at a time on it. I went online to try and find where I could order more yarn for it at a decent price since the closest Wal-Mart doesn't have the colors I need. I'll have to search a bit more, because I didn't find any. I am using 'Peaches & Creme 4 ply 100% Cotton in the 1 lb cones Colors #130 Shaded Pastels and #26 Light Blue. This thing is going to be REALLY HUMONGOUS when I get it finished. Maybe large enough to fit a King bed. It was really only suppose to be queen size, but well things don't always come out like I intended LOL!

Lastly is the Tatting,,,,I finished a bookmark, but as I was finishing it, I realized I had made a mistake in it further back than I was going to take out. Soooo I finished it anyway (except working in the tails) and started it over again. Only this time using a smaller thread. I went from size 30 to size 80 WoW what a difference!!!! I keep finding myself asking how in the world did I ever tat with quilting thread!!!!!!!!!!!! Good thing with tatting one can still tat without seeing 'real' clearly the stitches. My buddy the magnifying glass has been real close on hand again he he he.

Anyway, looks like I am going to have a passel of pics to take as before too long. I have about 5 tatted pieces, 1 afghan, 1 partial vest, and a dishcloth all to take pics of. LOL Which helps in my photography too LOL!

Hope ya all are staying healthy and warm or cool if you are wayyyyyyyy in the south. Take care n Blessings

Hello Diane and TattingChic! Sorry I am oh so slow in replying back. After being sick, projects to get done *still working on* and family visits,,,,I am just getting caught up.

Diane-- Thank you on the 'look of page' Only think I ended up loosing ALL my widgets, links, etc. Haven't gotten them put back yet. Not sure I want to go through all that again if I may loose them again when I change themes.

TattingChic-- Got those pics posted now, as you can see LOL. I sure would like to know how you change your themes and not loose all of your 'goodie' info n links!!!
