What Can I Say?

Ok, much for keeping up with posting - again.

It seems that Facebook has made blogs seem almost useless. How much do I have to say that hasn't already been said there? Or how many readers do I have that don't see my Facebook posts? I always seem to think that everyone who reads my blog posts already know everything that is in them. Oh well....we'll see what I can come up with. :)

Currently, I'm working on knitting a chemo hat for a lady at church. It's a pattern from that was given to me by a friend. So far, it;s turning out quite nicely.

Speaking of Knit Picks...I got this pattern from them and made it as a Christmas gift. I absolutely love the pattern!

I've also been working on a pair of socks. Spiral Tube socks with Paton's stretchy sock yarn. I have one done, and I'm pretty happy with it. Now I need to finish the other....

One of my Christmas gifts was a graphic tablet. It has made working with graphic art in PhotoShop so much more fun! I made a couple of desktop wallpapers for my Mom with Tigger in them. Here they are:

You can see all of my other recent creations in my Picasa Web Album where I upload them as I make them. :)

We've been enjoying the warmer weather we've had off and on here. I take walks with Ahnnah every day that I can. We've found that if you walk up our road and continue on to the part that's mostly unused, we pass the well and the old horse stables and end up on a gravel road...that's very squishy when it's wet. It's wet quite often, because when the well is full, the overflow runs out and down across the road. Sometimes, there's a steady stream running across the road. Eventually it ends up at a dead end where it circles around a big tree. It's perfect though, because if we walk at a good, brisk pace all the way to the end and back, it takes a full hour. :)

We had an ice storm hit our area about a month ago. I took some really neat pictures of ice-covered things. I've had my uncle's "old" camera for the past couple of months. He let me borrow it when he got a new one. Being a professional photographer, he has nice cameras. :) I LOVE this camera! It's a Nikon D80.

And we had a big snow....

Well, not bad for spur of the moment, huh? :) We'll see if I can come up with more soon...

Hi! I just started a blog and forgot to tell you. sorry. Will you be at the ladies tea?

Jaime said...

Did you? That's great! I'll have to go look at it.
No, we won't be at the Tea. We have church on Wednesday night, and have to be there since we're in charge of the kitchen and "technical" stuff....we're having a chili dinner and watching a movie.
Did you get all of the pictures that I e-mailed you a couple of weeks ago?
