Here is a place where you can enjoy listening (reading) about all my adventures as a lefty in a righty world. It is not easy to do this at times but I have managed to do it for over 60 years. Crafting is probably the hardest thing to do as a lefty since all directions are printed for righties. I have managed to adjust and will be more than happy to share my crafts with you thru pictures and writings. Enjoy!

YoP I'm loving it
This week did not see a whole lot of progress but I did do something on my list that has been sitting in project bag for the past 2 years.
I did add to my stash this week.
So here is a look at the list again:
Year Of Projects 2012-2013
Use up all cotton yarn for dishcloths (should have 24-26 clothes when completed) (14 Done)
Complete 3 project bags (I have several bags labeled with the project they are to become)
Complete LaLa Shawl (In progress)
Complete Comfort Cancer ribbon shawl (In progress)
Complete Color Affection Shawl (In progress and so close to being done)
Frilly scarf (In progress but not happy with it)
2 blooming pillows (1/4 done)
Use up 1/2 of sock yarn (Oh my, this could take a while)
Did I hear someone ask about the color affection shawl? Well.....................I am on the finale part of it but...............................It takes me over 20 minutes just to do one row. Hence the reason it is taking forever to do the 2" of edging that is in the pattern. I think I have 3 rows of edging done at this point but it is going to take a bunch more than that to complete it. I do love the way it is turning out but please be patient with me. I will get it done but I just needed to work on something with a bit quicker gratification. (fingerless mitt)
I ordered DPN's this week in sock sizes 0-3. I think I am going to try my hand at doing socks on DPN's and see how I like it. I got them from Knit Picks and I got the 5" needles as the 7" ones I am using now keep poking me in the tummy. (stop laughing!)
This coming weekend we have a conference to go to. It is Friday evening through Sunday evening. This is one place I can take my crafts with me and work on them without being disturbed and no one cares. So I will probably be taking my cancer ribbon shawl with me as I should be able to complete that while there. If that gets completed then I will take dishcloths to work on since they are small and easy to carry. At least that is the plan right now.
Until next time...............................
PS: I want to thank all of you that have been leaving comments for me. I do read all of them and as some of you know I will reply via email if there are questions that need to be answered.

Crafting and family
As for the doll clothes..........................I am once again a bad blogger. I finished the red dress and made a hat, purse and shawl to match and failed to take a picture of the finished product. I am hoping that the little girl will bring her American Girl doll over with her all dressed up in that outfit today. If she does I will get a photo of it and post it next week. So I managed to complete 2 tops, two skirts and the red outfit all in about 3 days. Of course I was up until 11:30 the night before her birthday completing it and wrapped it all up and then remembered the camera. Bad, bad blogger.
I worked a bit on the color affection shawl but not enough for you to notice in a picture. I have about 8 more rows do to and then I will be in the final phase of it. I will be happy to get it off the needles and more on to one of the other shawls that are patiently waiting to be finished too. Not to mention the other projects on my YoP that need to be worked on pretty soon.
Ok, on to the family stuff.
We go to the same place every year for her family birthday party. It is called Organ Stop. There is a HUGE Wurlitzer organ there and they place all sorts of music. So every year she dances with her daddy to some of the slow songs. I think they both love this little daddy daughter time.
She had no idea what we had planned. So she was pretty confused when we brought in a Christmas gift bag and a gave her a Christmas card.
And if you must know...............................yes, he also won $$$ on the slot machine. It was a great day for him.
That is all the news for now from here.
