First Year Anniversary

Yay Me!!!
I've been smoke free for a year!!!!!
Never thought I could make it this far!!
I spoiled myself with some trekking sock yarn and a figheadh sock pattern from my favorite LYS the Yarn Stash in Burien WA.

Was going to post pictures but our SUN has gone away, I think it going to rain. Can't get good pictures when it grey outside. Yep I live in the Pacific Northwest. But I love it here

Sock Yarn Swap

We had a sock yarn swap on For_the_Love _of_Socks yahoo group. I got a wonderful package from Mary in MO. There was 2 hanks of handspun yarn and 2 skeins of Lane Cervinia yarn, Sunshine Sock pattern(free), notebook and pen, row counter and stitch markers.

Thanks for the package Mary. I'm still getting your's together. I had to teach a beginner's crochet class this week. So I'm alittle behind on my mailing.

Defeat Winter Exchange

I got a wonderful package from my Secret Pal Hilary from Winnipeg Canada.

I got 2 dishcloths, yummy peach smelling soap, patterns for the dishcloths, Strawberry Kiwi Crystal Light tube, and 2 skein of Bernat Bamboo yarn. I'm going to do a Ravelry search to see what people have made with it.

Thanks Hilary for the AWESOME Package!!!!!

Birthday Cake

Tomorrow is my daughter's 4th birthday. I can't believe she is getting so big.

She is in love with Ruby & Max by Rosemary Wells. She loves the show and the books. So her request this year was a Ruby & Max Cake.

After a couple of back breaking hours I got it done. It turned out really cute.

She loves it!!!!!
