A Surprise For Emmy

Sweet little Emmy broke her arm so I thought I would send her a little treat. When Keni was younger she was always bringing home little rocks from school. Sometimes she would forget to give them to me and they would end up in the bottom of the washing machine. I wish I would have thought of this back then. When the M's are all gone they have a nice little rock holder. Or refill with more M's would be good too! lol Well I better go and find a padded envelope to stick these in and get them ready for the post office. Bye for now...Hugs, Cindy

The Skinny Tassel Scarf

Still trying to use up some pink yarn. This is 3 shades of pink. 3 crocheted skinny scarves connected in the middle with tassels added. I really like knitted scarves better than crocheted but I do like this one.

The wind is blowing and it is rainy out. Keni said they even got snowed on at lunch recess today! Oh well, it is the weekend and we can stay in if it continues. Time to go and relax and find a new project. It seemed like a long day at school today. Hugs, Cindy

Keni's teacher has a turtle, well actually a tortoise that lives in the classroom and goes home on weekends and holidays. The kids take turns taking care of her. So I made this little guy for Keni to take to her teacher tomorrow. It has a 3 liter soda bottle cap inside with some stuffing. Just got the idea last night and had to give it a try and I think it turned out pretty cute. I can see a lady bug coming soon!

We have had such nice weather, around 80 all week. Well things have changed today. It started out nice but now the wind is blowing and the sky is getting over cast. Suppose to rain again! They say today, tomorrow and Saturday. We really need the rain but I was getting pretty used to the nice weather.

Well I am off to work on some coasters. Hugs, Cindy

Shades of Pink

It has been a while since I have been here. I am way over due with a new project. I have been working on a set of placemats for my sister. I love the placemats but hate all the ties it takes to make one. Four down and only 3 more to go! In the mean time I decided to use up more of my odds and ends. I made some squares for 2 more scrap aghans. And with still more of the pink I made a scrappy scarf for Lisa. I'm working on another one that I will post tomorrow. It is 3 pink skinny scarves with tassles. Just something I decided to try and see how it turns out. So far it looks great!

Spring break is nearly over and our weather was mostly terrible! On Tuesday it started storming and continued until late Wednesday night. And boy was it cold. Only about 32 degrees! Today it is better but still chilly. Suppose to be up near 80 tomorrow! And then school starts back on Monday, with only 6 weeks left!!! I think we are ready for summer vacation! Keni got her progress report the last day of school and she made honor roll again, A's and those 2 darn B's that she just can not get over that 87 and 89%! One of these days she will get there! lol

Was suppose to go to Reno Wednesday to see the cardiologist and get some tests done but had to cancel because of the storm. There was no was I was going to try and drive 4 hours in that! So will probably wait until school is out to try and go. Well, I guess that is all for today. Better go and finish up the "tassle skinny scarf"...Hugs, Cindy
