Lots of knitting going on!

I've been doing allot of knitting lately I finished one of many scarves. This is one of my favorites the pattern is from Classic Elite called Magnolia and its a free pattern.
I used some cascade 220 that I already had its pink with just a little orange in it! I love the pattern at each end.

I also made this cute head band using a free patterns from one of our local yarn shops!
Stay warm its snowing here!

Dressing up the Craftroom!

The window seat in my craft room needed a cushion and some pillows. So while the computer was down and I was not in blogland, that's what I worked on. But finding the right fabric was going to be the hard part.
So off to Joann's I went and I found this wonderful fabric, looks very 60's! The colors where just perfect!
And I found this plaid to go along with it, on sale! And I love plaid as much as polka dots!
And this is what it now looks like with a few pillows!
Have a nice day!

Pie Filling and applesauce

I thought I would show you my pie filling and applesauce that I bottled last fall since not much to tell. I've made several pies with it and boy are they good.

I spent most of the weekend cleaning and shopping, not much fun!

I hope your weekend was a good one!

Melt Down!

Finally the temps have gotten above freezing and we are starting to have a melt down! Its been raining since yesterday but they say more snow is on its way. Can you see all the deer tracks they have been coming down and eating whats left of my herbs.
Just thought I would show you the cute salt and pepper shakers that my daughter gave my for Christmas. Don't they look cute with my dishes!

I spent Friday baking bread with my other daughter. Nothing like hot bread with butter and honey!
Hope you have a nice week!

I'm Back!

I really can't believe its been as long as its been since my last post. But it all started with our old computer deciding to stop working. My son spent several months trying to save it but in the end we had to put it to sleep. So then it was what should we buy a lap top or a desk top will as you can see the lap top won out and yes hubby let me get pink! But then I just think after not blogging for so long it was just easier not to. But after receiving several emails and posts on my last blog asking if I was OK I thought I had better at least let my blog friends know I'm just fine a little tired after the holidays but OK!

I've been working on so much so stay tune!

Have a wonderful cold and boy do I mean cold winter day!
