more snow days....more projects

Snow days...snow days. I sure hope this weather comes to a halt sometime soon because... these snow days are not good for my heath! First I made a huge pot of chicken stew with lots of veggies a very hearty meal. Decided it needed something special to dip into so i made a batch of biscuits.  The next day i made homemade pizza with onions red peppers and bacon bits. (Thanks for that Miss Jones...its your fault!) The following day i needed something sweet so I made a cranberry orange nut bread.

The real reason for this bread was that I didn't want to be out done by my girl over at Acorn Hollow!
A while ago one of my knitting friends came over to show me that her son had bought her a set of wood sock blockers. Oh My! What a nice gift! Have always wanted a set for my home made socks. After looking at them I decided that I could make a set myself. That's know what's coming next! I brought the project to my husbands attention and it just so happens he had some extr…

Snow Day!

Do you remember when we were kids and school was called off for a snow day? Gosh! The good ole days... Well nothing has changed...I gave myself a day off today. That's really because i couldn't have gone out even if I wanted to. This is my view this morning.....the visibility was non existent.

So it was at this point i decided that these projects should be tackled So kicking up my feet ( that's right I'm wearing a pair of knit-felted slippers made by yours truly.) i grabbed a U.F.O

Ok...I'll tell you projects in grocery bags!

 I can't take the credit for that one I stole it from a  lady in a knitting group on Facebook.
Here is another one of the projects that I started humm some time ago.!!! Stuck! I'm lost as to what they want me to do next.
  Here is the pattern. If any of you reading this blog have made this tote I sure would appreciate some guidance.
That's …

A bit of a walk down memory lane....

Wow! On Saturday Papa and Mémère got to watch our little guy play basketball. Oh my! That was so much fun. He will be our little JOCK! He is so focused and does a great job dribbling and shooting this brought me right back to when my son played so as you guessed it I was all chocked up and brought me to tears.

Now how stinking cute is he?!

This week I was finally able to complete Miss A's 1st hooked project.  
Now mind you she designed and hooked this all by herself. I gave her the choice of how we could complete it and she chose a "stuffie".

So that's what I did. 
What do you think?

I gave him a scarf and a little bell. We facetime'd the other night so I could show it to her and she screeched with delight. That was a happy girl!!
I was going through my wine stash the other night and what a surprise to find one of my favorite wines. 
Yes! Yes! Yes! And here is my second still down memory lane. I brought this bottle home from visiting my neice in California. One o…
