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!

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.

Pretty cloths! Looking forward to seeing your finished Colour Affliction too, it must be nice to be so close to the end.ReplyDelete
I love all your photos, and the stories that go with them.
Love the dishcloths and I bet the dolls clothes are gorgeous, hoping you get the picture. Lovely family shots, its so nice to see the generations all together and I bet your Mom loved her present, I love my Kindle and way to go your hubby getting it, what a stroke of luck.ReplyDelete
I thought for sure she'd have grabbed that fab rainbow cloth - I would have!ReplyDelete
I love all the photos you shared. I have to say, how FORTUNATE your hubby won the kindle fire. I think its great and you were able to re-gift it too! (and the money was a bonus, I'm sure LOL).ReplyDelete
I do have to ask, what yarn did you use on the double hump cloth?
Hope you are able to get a picture of the doll clothes. I know how you feel, I give stuff away all the time and forget to take pictures of it!ReplyDelete
What a wonderful day! I really have to get moving on my own colour affection or there is no way I'll have it finished by the end of the month!!ReplyDelete
Sounds like you had a great week. I forget to take finished photos a lot too, glad I'm not the only one.ReplyDelete
Grandma's Favorite is my go-to dishcloth pattern; I know it's a little plain, but I love that I can knit them in a dark movie theatre. So far I've stuck with solids, but I love your rainbow!ReplyDelete
beautiful pics of the little birthday girl! I got a little teary-eyed at the daddy daughter dance. I had to beg my husband to get him to dance with me before our wedding, but he will dance all around with my little ballerina. I adore it.ReplyDelete
I made the bumpy cloth out of the exact same rainbow yarn. I love it. it scours pans so nicely!
I love the dishcloth on the left, the colours are so vibrant! And sounds like your husband was one lucky man, what a great thing to do with his win!ReplyDelete
